24-Hour Cancellation Policy

Goucher Pilates OneCard

Each client will receive a OneCard that will get you into the Sports & Recreation Center when it is locked and will serve as your identification as a Pilates client if you are asked to present ID.  If you lose your OneCard, the fee to print a replacement card is $15.00 and if you decide to stop taking Pilates classes at Goucher, please return your OneCard to us.

Inclement Weather

The Pilates Center follows the closings and delayed openings of Goucher College.  An alert will be placed on Goucher's mainpage: to announce a closing or time at which the college will open. For example, if the college opens at 10am, the 8:15 and 9:15am mat classes will be canceled.  If in doubt, please call 410-337-6531.

All private lessons must be canceled when the college is closed. In the case of a delayed opening or early closing, please contact your individual instructor.



Students new to the Pilates Center must complete a health form before their first class. Forms are available in the Pilates studios or by emailing the Pilates Center.
