hi! I'm thinking on starting my pilates studio in a few months. Very useful tips! I have a question for the class managment:
1. How can you work in small group (up to 6 people)? Is better having particular time the class ..or something else?
2. charging them per lesson or per month?
Happy to hear opinions. Love from Greece

Love your approach I find it empowering to be honest - especially regarding the pricing ... no more apologising!
MARIA Punch cards is a reward program. So in the case of Pilates classes it works like this. For every 10 classes a person takes they get one for free. We have little cards that track their visits. This is a common practice here with coffee shops and other service businesses.

So very helpful! Thank you 👍🏼
Cara can you make a recommendation on a Scheduler for a small studio? I have been using MINDBODY for years but I need to make a change. The learning curve was big in the beginning and normally I am scheduled out for months at a time. I have been in business for a long time since 1996. I also have an older cliente.
