Any personal belongings left behind will be kept in the lost property by the Studio for a maximum of 4 weeks after which time they will be disposed of.

3.     Classes

3.1     Class cancellation policy: We understand that life gets busy, so we are happy for you to change your booking ahead of the scheduled day. If you are a no show or cancel your session late, we are not always able to fill these places. This impacts the flow of the studio and stops others from attending the class who may be on the waitlist. It is for these reasons that if you need to change your booking, we require you to do so at least 3 hours before your booked session so that our Instructors can adapt accordingly. Failure to do so will result in a cancellation fee being incurred. For clients who are on a membership who fail to attend without any notice will incur a $20 cancellation fee For clients who are on a membership who cancel late, within 3 hours of the scheduled class time will incur a $15 cancellation fee. For clients on a casual pass or class pack that cancel within 3 hours of the scheduled class time will be charged the full cost of a single session, forfeit a class credit. All upfront Membership clients you will lose 1 day off your membership for non-attendance or cancelling within 3 hours of the scheduled class. This applies to all of our members.

3.2     Class waitlists: We have live waitlists available to all our clients to improve the availability of our classes. If you are on the waitlist and are no longer able to attend, please remove yourself from the waitlist at least 3 hours prior to the commencement of the class. This is because you are potentially preventing others from attending and to give notice to others to be able to get to the class. You will receive an automatic notification via text or email if you are moved from the waitlist to the class. The 3-hour cancellation policy will still be enforced for clients that are moved from the waitlist into the class.
