What is the Altitude Fitness Armidale & Soul Studios Relationship?
Both studios share the same founder, Ali Flynn and are conveniently located next door to each other at 171 Rusden Street- otherwise referred to as Head Quarters.

Altitude Fitness Armidale (AFA), focuses on fitness, encompassing strength, cardio, boxing, cycling, and swimming. 

In contrast, Soul Studio centres around yoga, pilates, meditation, and breathwork. 

Many individuals opt for unlimited classes across both studios for a comprehensive wellness experience. The combined membership is $65 per week. If you're interested in learning more or discussing your options, click the button below to book a 30-minute power chat with one of our coaches.
What is the Pricing Model?
 Our pricing structure is designed to be simple and highly valuable. For new members, we offer a special rate of $7 for 7 days, allowing you to try all 7 experiences. Following the trial period, unless specified otherwise via email to admin, you will automatically be upgraded to our 'Zen' membership at $37.50 per week for unlimited studio sessions. There are no yearly contracts—cancel anytime with a 30-day notice. 
What if I am new to this- to yoga, pilates, meditation?
If you're new to our studio, you're in the right place! Our instructors are welcoming, warm, caring, and passionate about helping individuals of all knowledge and fitness levels. Explore and experience different styles of sessions to find out what suits you best. 
What is the difference between Yoga and Pilates?
Yoga and Pilates are both excellent practices for enhancing physical and mental well-being, but they differ in their approaches and focuses.  

Yoga is a practice that emphasises connecting the mind, body, and spirit. It often involves a series of postures, breathing exercises, and meditation. Yoga aims to improve flexibility, strength, and balance, while also promoting relaxation and stress relief.

Pilates on the other hand, is a form of exercise that focuses on strengthening the core muscles, improving posture, and enhancing overall body awareness. Pilates helps improve strength, coordination, and muscular endurance, with a particular emphasis on core strength.

In summary, while both Yoga and Pilates offer numerous benefits for the body and mind, Yoga focuses more on wholistic well-being and connecting with oneself, while Pilates is more focused on physical conditioning and core strength.

How long are the sessions?
All sessions are 45 minutes unless stated otherwise. We strive to provide a comprehensive and efficient wellness experience within this timeframe. If there are any variations in duration for specific sessions, it will be clearly communicated.
How do I book in sessions?
To book your classes, we utilise an online booking system called "Acuity." You can download the app for easy access, and all necessary information will be provided in a welcome email sent to you upon registration. Simply follow the instructions to book your preferred classes hassle-free. 
Do I need to arrive early to class?
Yes, it is advisable to arrive a few minutes early. Most clients prefer to enter the studio promptly, find their mat, and begin their practice. If you wish to have a quick chat or catch up with someone, we recommend doing so before entering the actual studio. Once inside, kindly regard it as a space for quiet reflection. Phones should be turned off on entering the studio.
What if I am late to class?
To ensure the safety of everyone's belongings, the entrance door will be locked 5 minutes after the class begins. Therefore, it's essential to arrive before the scheduled class commencement time. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Congratulations on this exciting journey! If you are pregnant, please inform your instructor as soon as possible. We have instructors trained in pre and postnatal yoga who are happy to guide you through any necessary modifications for your practice. It's important to discuss your pregnancy with your doctor so they are aware you'll be engaging in exercise during this time. Your well-being is our priority, and we're here to support you on this special journey.
What if I can not make a session?
We understand that plans can change. You are welcome to cancel any studio sessions up to 24 hours before the scheduled start time. In consideration of our capped classes, we encourage all clients to remove their names from a class if they know they cannot attend. Please note that no-shows who do not cancel may risk losing their priority booking status. Your cooperation ensures that all members can enjoy a fair opportunity to attend our classes. 
What if I have an injury or unusual pain?
We encourage you all to prioritise their well-being. Please inform the instructor of any current injuries before class. If you experience unusual pain during the session, kindly pause and transition into a pose that accommodates your body.  For those with chronic injuries, recent injuries, or who have undergone surgery, we strongly advise consulting with your doctor or clinician before commencing your practice. Your health and safety are our top priorities.

No need! Our studio is fully equipped with mats, bolsters, blankets, and blocks to enhance your practice. However, feel free to bring your own gear if you prefer a personal touch or have specific preferences. We strive to create a comfortable and accommodating environment for your experience.
