STUDIO POLICY

Shoes will have to wait for you outside on the terrace, everybody will be barefoot during the classes.

Smoking and eating are not allowed inside the studio or on the terrace.

Our pet friends can’t wait for you on the terrace.

Please be punctual. All our classes follow a certain protocol and instructors and students wouldn’t like to be disturbed during their concentration/relaxation time. Try to arrive between 15 and 5 minutes before the class starts so it can start on time. A 5 minutes tolerance is the best we can offer.

Last but not least, please be respectful and courteous. All students must remain calm and silent during the class. This means that the mobile phones sounds should be turned off.

CANCELLATION POLICY

If you can’t assist to a class you’ve already booked, please advise us before 6 pm the day before for a morning class or at least 3 hours before for an afternoon class. This may allow to advise instructors and/or accept another student instead. If this deadline is not respected or in case of ͞no show͟, the lesson will be counted.

The studio may be closed or classes cancelled whenever the instructor will feel the need to do so for safety reasons, especially in case of typhoon or heavy rain. All students who booked a class will then be advised as soon as a decision is made.

Similarly, Yoga Bay reserves the right to cancel or postpone a class if not enough students booked a class (less than 3 students) or if an unpredictable event occurs. In such case, the students will be advised as soon as the decision is made and the class will be refunded.

REFUND POLICY

Any class, workshop, retreat, card or package paid is nonrefundable.
