Inner Balance Guidelines for Practice

Inner Balance Policies

 

When to Arrive

Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the start of class to allow plenty of time to check-in and prepare yourself for class. Classes close 10 minutes after start time (out of respect for the teacher and other students, students will not be permitted into class after this time).

 

What to Wear

Please wear what is most comfortable to you. Most students will find workout clothes such as leggings, bike shorts and a fitted top or t-shirt are the best. All yoga and Pilates classes are done in bare feet. Please wear socks with grip or studio shoes to barre class.  Refrain from wearing perfume, cologne or scented oils during class, as some people have allergies.

 

When to Eat

Since all classes are physical, it is best to practice on a relatively empty stomach. You may want to eat a meal at least two hours before class or a snack at least one hour before class.

 

What to Bring

We encourage students to bring their own mat, as well as a reusable water bottle and hand towel. All props are provided.

 

Age to Practice
Pre-Teens/Teens aged 12-14 are allowed in classes with parent present and parental consent.

Teens aged 15-18 are allowed in classes with parental consent.

 

Membership Policies

Our membership requires a 3 month minimum commitment and utilizes monthly auto-renewal. After 3 months, the membership will continue to renew monthly unless the member cancels their membership in writing 30 days before the next billing cycle. Members can freeze their membership once a year for a maximum of 30 days, before the auto-renew starts again. Subsequent freezes will incur a $30 charge. Couples membership are for spouses or domestic partners and requires members to live in the same residence.

 

Cancellation/No-Show/Late Arrival Policy

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy for private appointments and a 4 hour cancellation policy for group classes.  Please note that you will forfeit your session if you cancel after that time period. If you reserved a class online, your reservation will be held for you until the start of class only.  If you are not at the studio at this time, you will risk losing your reservation as the space will open up to anyone who is waiting.  There are no exceptions and we can not hold your reservation if you are running late.  Class packages have a 1 year expiration date.   All memberships and class packages are non-refundable, extendable or transferable. Memberships and class packages can only be used for regular scheduled classes, excluding special workshops and events.
