Studio Policy & Procedures
You cannot start exercising without first doing a body assessment.
The first session that you will attend will be a body assessment. This session is 1 hour long and in this session, your instructor will be assessing the following:
Your postural alignment
Your ability to isolate within muscle groups without compensating (cheating)
Your ability to activate your core
Your understanding of joint movements
Your mind-body connection
Your ability to breathe efficiently
Your ability to disassociate in joints
Your ability to move freely in your shoulder joint without tension
The stability of your shoulder, hips, knees & spine
Your weaker, stronger, flexible and inflexible muscle groups
During this assessment, the instructor will also gather information from you regarding past injuries, any aches or pains, your exercise history and what goals you would like to achieve. A file will then be opened for you that will contain all of your information including your exercise sheet that your instructor completes after every session that you attend. This allows us to offer a professional service as we are able to keep track of your progress and refer back to previous sessions to ensure that we are meeting your and our goals.
An assessment needs to be done first before joining any classes. If this is not done, then you exercise at your own risk.
The studio and employees thereof, whether full time, part-time, contract workers or permanent employees will not be liable for injuries, pain caused due to an assessment not being done as well as if a disclosure of deformities, injuries, surgeries, illness or any other ailment of any kind is not made in written/typed format.
If you would like to join a mat class, please book in advance.
The capacity for a mat class is 25 individuals.
ALL CLASSES ARE DONE ONLINE VIA ZOOM.
All clients need to advise on any pain, injuries, pathologies and pregnancy. To not do so, could cause further pain and incorrect exercise based on your body and could cause further injury and/or complications.
If this is not disclosed, we cannot take responsibility for injuries caused by a lack of disclosure.
We want to help you keep your body healthy.
If you have skeletal or muscular injuries, we need a report from your doctor/ physiotherapist/ biokinetiscist/ chiropractor/ MRI scan or X-rays.
If you are pregnant, please get a letter from your doctor/OBGYN stating that it is safe for you to exercise.
Once you book with the instructor, these are permanent slots, unless otherwise stipulated.
If you are unable to make a session, please inform us/cancel well in advance as the instructor prepares the sessions based on your body assessment and your goals. All sessions are client specific.
There is a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you cancel within 24 hours or do not arrive at your session, you are charged for the session.
If you do not show up for your session without prior notice, you will be charged for the session.
All phones should be on silent or off when entering the online session as this disrupts the flow of the session.
There are no contracts for exercise.
All sessions are to be paid in advance.
If you have not paid for your sessions, you can not exercise.
