Why the front door is locked during Yoga/Pilates classes?
Our studios are open concept and noise travels. Please keep chatting to a whisper so as not to disrupt the previous class. Arriving late for a Yoga/Pilates class disrupts the other people that are already there. Your arrival and setting up will distract them from what the teacher is saying and it will take them time to get back into the flow of the class. Please arrive at least 10 min before class start time. We lock the front door during a Yoga or Pilates class to ensure the students and teacher are not interrupted during a practice. There is absolutely no late entry for Yoga/Pilates classes. Please do not ring the doorbell or try to open the door past the class start time or before the class end time.
Do I have to sign up for a contract and pay initiation fees?
