What if I am late for a class?
If you are running late for class please contact us as soon as possible. If you are five minutes late participation will be at the instructor’s discretion. If you are more than ten minutes late then there will be no entry, due to missing the important warm up part of the class, which could result in injury. The booking/payment cannot be carried over, as we have a 24 hour cancellation policy on all of our sessions.
Do you have a barefoot policy?
For some classes it is appropriate to go barefoot. If you don’t wish to do this, then please wear socks which have gripper on the soles of the socks to prevent slipping. If you do wish to go barefoot, please ensure that you don’t have any of the following: athlete’s foot or verrucaes. If you do have these please ensure your feet are covered until you are completely clear of infection, you can still come to class.
