OUR STUDIO

STUDIO POLICIES AND ETIQUETTE

  • Preregistration is available online through our Mind Body software and is required to secure your space in our classes.  Payment and waivers are processed through this application or in-studio should you require assistance (please keep in mind we are a cash-free studio). To minimize contact through COVID-19 we are currently only accepting credit card, debit and e-transfer payment. 

  • Please visit the sign-in desk before class to check-in

  • Do your best to arrive 5-15 minutes early to class, allowing time to sign in, prepare and ground yourself for practice. Being a small studio, we are often operating the front and studio space independently, meaning the front door needs to be locked at the class start for safety and security.  We start our classes on time and will not accept any late entry to classes for this reason.  We open our doors 15 minutes before class start- should you arrive earlier than this, we kindly request you wait in your car to allow us sufficient time to prepare our space to teach.

  • Our practice rooms are silent, sacred and clutter-free spaces. Please leave your conversations in our lounge and your belongings where space is provided in our coat and change room. Please do not bring your phone into the studio room.  We encourage connection at our studio, but we have to also be mindful of members who arrive early for quiet meditation- there will be an opportunity to chat after class.

  • You can cancel your class online or through our app up to 2 hour before class start time to avoid losing a class pass. We do not accept email or phone cancellations. 

  • If you have registered and secured a space in class and you don’t show up it means that someone else could not get into the class.  If you have a class card, the class you missed will be automatically deducted.  If you have an unlimited pass, your permission to continue with us on an unlimited basis will be permanently discontinued after 5 missed classes.  We have limited space due to our Covid-19 restrictions, and allowing us at least 2 hours notice in canceling allows another member to access the spot in our busier classes.

  • If you have chosen to waitlist for a class, this is up to you to manage.  If this timeslot no longer works for you, you need to cancel your space on the waitlist just as you would cancel a regularly booked class.  MINDBODY will automatically place you into a class when space becomes available up to 2 hours before class starts, at which time, the booking is closed. You will be notified by email when this happens. (You can check in the app to see how many people are in front of you on a waitlist to help with your planning).

  • No refunds, holds or extensions on any Class Passes or memberships.  Class passes have a one year expiration date and memberships expire in the timeline you choose at purchase.

  • Beginnings Yoga Studio has a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination based on age, gender, sexuality, mental or physical disability, body type, race, religion or political belief.
