What if I need to a miss a class I have booked?

We understand things come up from time time which may prevent you from attending a booked class for this reason we have a very generous 2 hour cancellation window, student expected to manage any booking they make and cancel out any class they can not make at least 2 hours before. 

Please note any class you can not make is required to be cancelled out at least a 2 hour before the scheduled class online in your MIND BODY APP - by cancelling out our clas you freee up the mat for another student also in the studio to attend plus it means more availability for everyone.

*Please note we underserstand life gets busy and sometimes it would be helpful to book on the go, this is why you can also even book a class up to 30 minutes before a scheduled class (subject to availability) online through your MIND BODY APP after you have purchased a pass if prebooking in advance seems to be difficult to commit too and life changes moment to moment * With over 9 classes a week we understand sometimes you just need a bit more flexibility.

If I do a miss the class without cancelling out in the Mind body app what then?

Missing a class or missing the generous 2+hour time window to cancel your class will simply be a lost class if you are not able to attend.

With the unlimited pass or unlimited add on upgrade - potentially you may be charged a $10 late notice cancellation or no show fee. To avoid this in the future from happening please manage your booking.

To avoid this charge and or any disruption to your acces to classes please manage all your bookings & classes & simply cancel any class you are uanble to make at least 2hours before in your MINDBODY APP

No transfers, refunds or credits for any reason for any unused classes.  Thank you for your understanding in advance.

I am not sure I will be able to keep up, or do ever pose, will I be ok?

Always Seek medical advice from your health care provider if starting or coming back to Yoga if you are unsure practicing is right for you, It is important to inform your teacher of your condition prior to the class so that they can modify the asana (poses) to suit your condition!

Do you have a studio etiqutte and what is expected of me if I am attending classes?

We know you would expect a calm, inviting environment, which our caring staff works hard to provide & our current students enjoy.

Our studio policy is in line with 'Yoga Australia's core value's, please become familiar with our studio policy so we can insure a sanctuary of calm & relaxation for all.

All helpful questions & answers should be also listed below. 

·       if attending the studio for classes please refrain from wearing and applying perfume/cologne before coming to the studio.

·       If you’re coming from work, please take the time to use the studio bathroom to freshen up before entering the studio & removing any perfume applied or cologne during the day or morning. Some people are sensitive to strong smells and remember everyone is trying to breathe deeply! If a smoker please do not smoke in the clothes you are wearing to Yoga or meditation & please refrain from smoking at least 1 hour before class.

·       Strong Bodily odour can be offensive especially in Yoga & highly distracting during class so please shower before coming to class in clean work out wear & preferably cotton tops that are breathable.

·       Please apply a low scented Deodorant Spray before all classes & or after showering.

·       It’s best to empty your bladder and ideally the bowels before the class begins and come to class on an empty stomach. A light snack 1 hour before or full mean at least 2hours before class starts is ideal for practicing Yoga. 

·       Before entering the Yoga sanctuary please leave your shoes just outside on the shoe rack and enter the studio barefoot & very quietly. 

·       Please leave your mobile phones completely off & left in the storage spaces provided outside the studio door. This is really important to us. Phones ringing and buzzing near the studio during practice can be very disruptive and besides, class is an excellent chance to switch off from the rest of the world. If you forget and your phone rings, please go outside quietly & switch it off straight away to minimise disruption. 

·        ALL belongings including Car Key(s), hand bags and jackets are to be left in the storage space allocated just before entering the Yoga room the front entrance is locked during the class time.

·        Please refrain from wearing Jewellery that is heavy & or noisy that could be distracting while we are moving, twisting & forward folding. It is better to wear as little jewellery as possible to Yoga.

·       As a general rule, please respect the teacher and students; and the studio as a space for retreat, calm relaxation, sanctuary, a place for reflection and meditation. Please pop your hand up Quietly if you require assistants or come out of the pose if you wish to sit out the pose. We are unable to accommodate calling out or speaking out in class, as it is highly distractive to the practice & other students & teacher in the class in deep thought and concentration.

·       Please insure you arrive on time or at least 10 minutes before class. The doors to the front entrance are strictly locked no later than 2 minutes after your scheduled class start has started.  

·       Please try to hydrate thirty minutes prior to practice and afterwards, not during. Not only can this create noise, drinking cools the body down and impedes the bodily heat transfer that yoga generates, which is ultimately one of the goals of practice. 

·       Some people view yoga as having a spiritual dimension. This is not for everyone; however, we welcome and respect any person’s reason for attending class whether it is for fitness, strength, flexibility, meditation or mindfulness – or a combination of all of the above.

·       Yoga is not just for the bendy or the buff. There is a Yoga practice for everyone and while many of the classes will increase strength and flexibility, it can also just simply be about moving, breathing, quieting the mind and getting to know your body. Always check with your Doctor before starting any new or returning back to any Physical activity if you are unsure if Yoga or Meditation is right for you.
