Are phones allowed in class?

Look, we love our phone as much as the next person but we can not have them in class.  Class is a place for learning and it would be inconsiderate to your instructor to be looking at your glowing screen of wonder while they are trying to get you into Teaser.  

No phone usage or wearable tech usage is permitted in our New York Pilates class studios. If there is an emergency, please quietly excuse yourself and check on your phone after you are outside of the classroom area.  Wearable devices are encouraged but only as a means for tracking fitness metrics, not Tindering or texting your BFF.
