If you book online you must sign in at reception at least 15 minutes before the class start time. Failure to do this may be treated as a ‘no show’ and your space may be given to someone else.
Your booking may be treated as a ‘no show’ if you do not attend the class or you fail to turn up at least 15 minutes before the class start time. In the event of 3 ‘no show’s’ or more in 1 month we will suspend your online booking rights for 1 week and, in addition, if you have a Class Card we will deduct one class.
Whilst we are willing to allow students to arrive (a little) late, we do not encourage this, and we need to be mindful of and respect other students who arrive on time. With this in mind you will not be allowed into class after the end of the initial breathing exercise even if you are signed in, changed and raring to go.
