KINEMATICS PT in the WILLIAMSBURG
Q: Do I need to buy a mat if I don't bring one?
A: The mat is really only to keep yourself off the floor. A beach towel will do the trick. There are a few mats available in the community room closet.
Q; What should I wear?
A: Dress comfortably as though you were going to the gym or any other fitness-type class.
You can wear comfy shoes or go barefoot- up to you.
Q: I have trouble getting up and down from the floor, can I still take part in the class?
A: Yes, absolutely. I will teach modifications to any ground-based stretches so that they can be done standing or seated in a chair.
Q: How do I pay?
A: Your first visit is free. After that you can pay in cash, by check, credit card, email invoice, text invoice, PayPal (joe@KinematicsPT.com) or Venmo (KinematicsPT). $10 or 10 class pack for $90.
Q: How old do I have to be?
A: Any age is welcome. If anyone is disruptive to the class, regardless of age, they will be asked to leave. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign the waiver before the first session.
Q: I only have a yoga mat, is there a difference between a yoga mat and an exercise mat?
A: For the purposes of this class there is no difference, but I'm sure you can find a great debate about it somewhere on the Internet.
Q: How much are exercise mats if I buy one at the class?
A: $20 (new in plastic packaging)
Q: Should I bring a foam roller, yoga block, stretch strap, or any other stretching tool?
A: If you want to bring a stretching tool you are free to do so. I will teach stretches in a way that you shouldn't *need* props, but they can still be helpful if used correctly. There is great debate about how some tools are used.
Q: Do I need to sign up for any mailing lists?
A: NO! I am your neighbor first and try to avoid becoming an annoying salesman in the building. You will need to sign a waiver and can opt-in to reminders and/or the very few emails I send on rate occasions.
Q: If I go to stretch class, am I still eligible for a free first individual assessment or gym orientation?
