Registration Policies and Guidelines

BE COMMUNITY

We are committed to ensuring class sizes are the most ideal for your practice and learning; and so we will never overbook a class.
Our policies were created with the intention of giving everyone a fair opportunity to get into class and emphasizing the commitment that is made when booking a class.
You can sign up online through our website or download our free mobile app to reserve your spot. Help a fellow yogi out and cancel your reservation on time, if you can’t make it to class. Please honor your commitment and show up for your reservation. Thank you!

7 DAYS

Online pre-registration opens days prior to class and closes 30 minutes before class.

5 MINUTES

If you haven’t checked in for class 5 minutes before the start time, your space may be released to a fellow yogi who is on the standby list.

THE ONLINE WAITLIST

When a class is full, we hold a number of spots on the waitlist for those would like to practice. If you are moved from the waitlist into class, you will receive an email notification / text message confirming your reservation at least 2 hours before class starts.
We will not move you from the waitlist into class after the Cancellation Window. If you have not received a notification 2 hours before the class begins, you can still try to attend the class as a drop-in student.
Make sure you’re opted in to receive updates for your reservation. Go to your account, select ‘Account management’. Make sure that ‘Reminders and schedule changes’ subscriptions boxes are ticked in order to receive all emails and / or text notifications.
Keep in mind that being on the waitlist for class is considered a commitment to joining that class. Be sure to check your waitlist status prior to class, and remove yourself from the list in a timely manner if you know you will not make it.
Our notification emails are automated, make sure you email provider does not send them in your spam, junk or other inboxes.

THE STANDBY LIST

If class is fully booked a Standby List will open on a first-come first-served basis. In case of no-shows or cancellations, the standby students will be added to class. There are no phone or email reservations for the Standby List, and your physical body must be here to be considered.
