CANCELLATIONS/NO-SHOWS

We understand that things come up. Out of courtesy to your instructors and fellow members, we ask that you please abide by the following policies.

By client:

  • In the event you need to cancel, please do so on Mindbody at least 6-hours in advance to allow room for other members to sign-up and avoid being charged a late-cancel fee of $5 in addition to the loss of your reserved pass.

  • If you are signed up for class and do not show, you will forfeit your class without refund + incur a $10 no show fee. 

  • If you have been added into a class ("Cleared") from the waitlist and are a "No Show", you will forfeit your class.

By the studio:

  • Every effort is made to ensure all classes run on a regular basis. If we do have to cancel class for any reason, we will notify you as soon as possible via email and/or text and credit your pass back to your account. We will also cancel via MINDBODY and always suggest checking the schedule prior to coming to the studio, especially in inclement weather. (Please enable settings on Mindbody to receive notifications)

  • All classes require a minimum number of advance sign-ups in order to run and are subject to cancellation if not met at least 2-hrs prior to class start time.
