code of conduct
Trainor Movement Co. is committed to providing an inclusive space for everyone. We will not tolerate discrimination against staff or clients. Every body is welcome at Trainor Movement Co.
We are inclusive of every self-identifying lesbian, bi, queer, non-binary, trans, gender fluid, Black, Indigenous, person of colour, fat, older, disabled, and injured people.
A pronoun is a word used to refer to someone. For example using he, she, or they in place of a noun. Our staff pronouns can be found in our about section. On your first visit to the studio we will ask you your pronouns on our intake form so that we can note them in your profile and address you correctly. If your pronouns change, or were listed incorrectly please let us know and we will update your profile and relevant staff. All clients and staff are expected to respect everyone's pronouns. If you make a mistake and refer to someone with the wrong pronoun, promptly apologize and correct yourself.
Racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, ableism, fatphobia, ageism or discrimination on basis of ethnicity, immigration status, or religious, cultural, and/or spiritual beliefs, or any other kind of oppressive behaviour is unacceptable. We reserve the right to ask any client to vacate the premises immediately.
Please do not stand in the way of the front entrance as this is our fire exit. Never sit or stand on a reformer without a spring attached to the gearbar. Please keep your phone off or on silent without a buzzer for the duration of your time in the studio.
Studio Safe Space
No marginalized body feels welcome in any space that is not theirs exclusively. Our mission is to create a space that all bodies feel safe and welcome. This is a brave space and a safe space. We will not incite judgement based on identity or experience - the ultimate goal is to provide support and comfort. A brave space encourages dialogue and recognizes difference, holding each person accountable to do the work of sharing experiences and coming to new understandings. A learning environment that allows learners to engage with one another and have conversations about social issues with honesty, sensitivity, respect, and generosity.
Consent is crucial and a requirement. We will never give a client a tactile without first asking their permission. An important part of the studio being an LGBTQIA+ friendly space it is important to never assume gender identity, sexual orientation, or spouse of any client or staff member.
