MEMBER SERVICES AND POLICIES
CANCELLATIONS: You must cancel a class at least 12 hours in advance, or you will be deducted that credit. For Unlimited Memberships, you will get charged a $15 fee for no-shows (i.e., not attending class without cancelling at least 12 hours in advance) and $15 for any late cancellations. No-shows include switching time slots within the 12-hour notice time period. You can cancel online, in our app, or by calling us. YOU STILL WILL BE CHARGED FOR NO-SHOW FEE.
(In the event of special circumstances, clients may receive 5 grace cancellations per year where no deduction or charge will be incurred for a late cancellation or no-show to use that. Give us a call or email us before the class starts. Unfortunately, We cannot go back and waive the fee now that it has been put through.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
RESERVATIONS: You must be physically present 10 minutes prior to the start of your scheduled class or your spot may be given to a waitlisted client.
WAITLIST: If a class is full we still highly recommend adding yourself to the waitlist. Last minute cancellations can open up an opportunity for you to take the class that you desire. When a cancellation is made, the first name on the waitlist gets automatically added to the class, and you receive an automatic email. Once you get added to the class from the waitlist, you become responsible for attending or cancelling.
FREEZING UNLIMITED MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP: Members with the $159 auto-renew package can freeze/pause their membership 2x per year for a minimum of 3 weeks, and a maximum of 2 months per freeze. They must submit their request in writing via email. If they call or make the request in person, please ask them to send an email.
PERSONAL BELONGINGS: You agree that IAM Yoga is in no way responsible for the safekeeping of your personal belongings in the facility. You assume all risk of loss for any of your personal belongings.
LATE ARRIVAL PHILOSOPHY
If you are not signed in at the desk within 10 minutes before class starts, and there are students hoping and waiting for a spot in class, we open the available spots in class to those who are on the waitlist, this means that you may lose your reservation. We also start our classes on time and will not accept any late entry to classes. Once the teacher closes the door – entry is not permitted.
SILENT PRACTICE ROOMS & STUDIO
Our practice rooms are silent, clutter-free spaces. Please do not bring personal belongings such as bags or cell phones into the practice room. We also ask that you keep conversations to common areas and outside of the practice room before and after class.
Please avoid coming in and out of the room once class has started unless it is an emergency. If you need to leave class prior to it ending please exit quietly and respect the space of those around you.
Entry to the practice room is not permitted more than 10 minutes prior to class. This allows our staff time to turnover the class and teachers to prepare if necessary.
