Classes can be purchased individually or as a class pass or membership. All classes, passes and memberships are non-transferable and non-refundable. Six class passes expire two months after purchase.
Bookings are all made online and no cash will be taken at The Studio. By booking a class, you automatically agree to these terms and conditions.
All class participants must be 18 years or over. All under-18s require written consent from a parent and or legal guardian to come to a class, workshop or event at The Studio.

The same terms and conditions apply for online classes via Zoom.
Gift vouchers are nonrefundable and nontransferable. They can be used for any classes or workshops ran by the teachers at This Is Yoga.
All class cancellations must be made at least 12 hours before class starts. If you do not cancel before this time, then there is no refund for single class payments or on class passes. In the case of workshops, we operate a 48-hour cancellation policy. As a small studio, this policy is necessary in order for us to operate. Thank you for your understanding.
If This Is Yoga has to cancel a class, course, workshop or event, a full refund will be offered/the class will not be taken off your pass.
Be aware that the timetable will change regularly. Refunds will not be offered on class passes because of this. We endeavor to deliver all our classes as per the schedule and as advertised.

For example, due to class times, teacher substitutes or bad weather.
This Is Yoga may have to change the services it provides to reflect Government advice, laws and regulatory requirements. If Government advice is to close the yoga studio due to the risk of Covid-19, classes will continue online.
