Yoga Studio Policies
Here are some helpful guidelines to make your next visit to a class or individual session with me a positive and enlightened one:
REGULARITY OF PRACTICE
To experience the optimal benefits of Yoga and Melt, its important to practice regularly. I recommend a minimum of 3 times per week, more if you can make the time. Practicing at home or in class on a consistent basis will accelerate your learning and greatly enhance your overall health.
ARRIVAL & REGISTRATION
Please arrive to the studio 10-15 minutes early to register, pay and prepare for class. Your practice begins when you arrive at the studio space, so please remove your shoes and turn off your cell phone.
If you arrive late, come into the room quietly and do not disturb the class already in session. For your own safety and well being, please arrive no later than 15 minutes after the start time of class, or you may not be let in.
I am happy to welcome teens over the age of 14. Unfortunately, teens and children under the age of 14 are not allowed to participate in or observe classes. Unattended minors, while classes are in session, are also not allowed.
Yoga postures and The Melt Method should be practiced on an empty stomach. Ideally, wait 3/4 hours after a large meal, and 1/2 hours after a light snack.
Please consult your physician before starting any new regime, especially if you have health issues. Inform me, and the other instructors, of any serious health conditions such as neck, back or joint injuries, glaucoma, heart disease, high blood pressure, recent surgery and pregnancy.
Do not practice yoga or the melt method under the influence of alcohol or drugs (including prescribed painkillers) which may alter your ability to judge your physical capabilities.
HYGIENE, PERFUMES, AND COLOGNES
Come to class freshly showered, with clean bare feet. The studio is a chemical fragrance-free environment.
Please refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes, and scented clothing during class.
You must have a towel for sweat to attend class. I recommend a hand towel and a large towel for mat. I sell these at the front desk. Please purchase or bring from home. After class, fold your mat in half and then roll it to cut down on the sanitary exchange.
The studio is closed 2 weeks per year for a deep clean and to redefine the space.
YOGA CLASS CARDS/UNLIMITED MEMBERSHIPS
Yoga is a commitment that you make to yourself, and as such, there are no refunds, transfers or extensions on class cards or memberships. However, in the case of unexpected travel or illness, GLOW memberships only can be "frozen" for one month at a time, no more than twice a year. Request for the freeze must be made in writing before the "freeze" period. Frozen months do not count toward the 12 month commitment for the GLOW package.
Workshop Policy: Workshop purchases are non-refundable, but may be transferred to another individual for the same event only OR a studio credit, LESS a $25 administrative fee which may be issued if you do not notify us in writing at least 72 hours before the start of the event. No other refunds or credits are available under any circumstances.
Generally, all sales are final. Consumable products are non-refundable. Clothing and other non-consumable products, if defective, can be returned or exchanged within 7 days of purchase along with original receipt only. No other refunds are available.
