A 24-hour notice is required for cancellation of all one-on-one, duet, and small group sessions. If you must cancel a scheduled appointment, please notify Excel Pilates or reschedule online at least 24 hours in advance or you will be held responsible for payment in full.  If you have a standing appointment, inconsistent attendance could result in the loss of that time slot regardless of 24-hour notice.

5- and 10-session cards are discounted and designed to support regular and frequent workouts. If you know in advance that you will be traveling or have a medical reason, please be sure to take that into account when purchasing a new package. (Please see the rate sheet online and posted at the front desk of the studio).


Your one-on-one, duet, and small group sessions are 50 minutes in length from the scheduled appointment time. If you are late for your appointment, you will be charged for the entire session and will receive the remainder of your lesson only. If you are more than 10 minutes late to your duet or small group appointment session, participation is at the teacher’s discretion.


You are encouraged to register for classes as soon as possible.  This is to ensure that you get into the class of your choice. Additionally, pre-registration ensures that we can contact you if there is a sudden change in the schedule or teacher.  

EQUIPMENT CLASSESCancellations must be made at least 24 hours before your scheduled class. If you need to make-up a missed class, you may reschedule the class, in the same level or lower, during the current session based on availability and only if you cancel within the 24-hour timeframe.

 MAT CLASSES: Cancellations must be made at least 12 hours before your scheduled class. To get the maximum benefit of your class series, it is strongly suggested that you attend class regularly. If you need to make-up a missed class, you may reschedule the class, in the same level or lower, during the current session based on availability and only if you cancel within the 12-hour timeframe. 

TARDINESS: If you are less than 10 minutes late for a class, please check-in with the instructor before joining in with the class. If you are more than 10 minutes late, please observe the class from the waiting area. This is to ensure your safety. For Level 1 classes or higher, if you are more than 5 minutes late, participation is based on the teacher's discretion. 

 PILATES MAT FOUNDATIONS AND LEVEL 1 MAT, CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE AS DROP-IN CLASSES.  YOU MAY START AT ANY TIME.  Pre-registration for these classes is recommended to ensure that you secure a spot.

Each mat and equipment class must reach a minimum participant number in order to be held.  Sign-up and pre-payment is required; there are no cancellations for a 6-week series.  Once registered, you are committed to the series.  Registrants may make up a missed class of equal or lower level during the current session based on availability.  A missed mat class may not be made up in an equipment class.  If our minimum is met for the 6-week session, we will allow drop-in participants during that session at a drop-in rate. Three (3) days before the start of any 6-week session, all sales are final, i.e., no refunds, transfers, etc.

Inclement Weather Policy:

In the event of inclement weather, the staff at Excel Pilates DC will evaluate immediate weather conditions and local weather forecasts and make the best possible decision on any necessary closure. If you are concerned about the weather forecast it is always best to cancel with a 24-hour notice in order to not be charged should the studio be open. Please be advised that weather conditions may allow us to open on time but necessitate an early closure. We may also have a delayed opening. Any weather-related closure will be announced on the studio voice mail and posted on social media. Please make sure that we have current contact information, as the studio will make every effort to notify all scheduled clients by phone or email. For any information regarding the studio closings due to inclement weather, please call 202-269-3020 and listen to our outgoing message for the most current update.  The studio voicemail or our Facebook page will indicate any change in the studio schedule. 


Excel Pilates has one designated parking spot in the lot just outside of the studio. That spot is first come, first serve. As a courtesy to others, if you use the reserved spot in front of the building, please be sure to only park there during your session. This allows for the space to be open for the next student arriving for their class or session. There is additional parking available to clients of Excel in the gravel lot adjacent to the studio. You will need a parking pass for this lot as the studio does not own the space, the lot is private and towing is enforced. We have parking passes in the studio (valid for one hour). Parking can also be found in the neighborhood and on 7th and Monroe in the paid PMI garage. Please allow time before your session to find parking.
