Registration and Class-Passes: We offer 5,10, 20, 1-month or 3-month unlimited class passes for your convenience with a special discount available for students and seniors (age 60 and over.) No pre-registration necessary to take a class. Just drop in a few minutes early to get acquainted with the studio. However, registering for classes online before you come in gives the student a certain guarantee and holds your spot in class. If paying online isn’t your thing, we also accept checks made out to: The Center. They can be mailed along with a registration form to: 70 N. Mason St. Suite 10, Harrisonburg, VA 22802. We also take cash, Visa and Master Card at the studio. We do not accept payment over they phone. Payment in full must be made at the time of registration, and can be handed to the instructor or to another staff member. **Class passes cannot be shared between friends and family members. It makes if difficult for us and for you to keep track of your attendance and class progress, and our registration software isn’t set up that way.
Arrival and Studio Etiquette: PLEASE BE ON TIME and make every attempt to arrive to class 5-10 minutes early (NEW STUDENTS should plan to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out a new student profile form.) Shoes may be left outside the waiting room door in the hallway. Once inside, please turn cell phones off and help keep the volume down. If there is another class in session, they well may be in savasana and need the quiet. We appreciate your understanding.
If You are Late: It happens sometimes. We just can’t always control it. If your Yoga class has already begun, we just ask that you stay in the waiting area until the centering is over so as not to disturb other students (this doesn’t apply to our Pilates or Nia classes.) If you are more than 10-minutes late, it is up to the instructor’s discretion whether or not it is ok to begin class late. Sometimes an essential warm-up may have been missed.
Mats and Props: Mats and props are available, but we strongly recommend owning your own mat. If you need some suggestions on what to get, we are happy to recommend some to you. They can be pretty inexpensive and it’s more hygienic to own your own. Plus you’re more likely to enhance your yoga or Pilates practice at home!
Hot Yoga and Power Yoga: Hot Yoga and Power Yoga are heated to 80-85 degrees. Please bring your own mat and towel to these classes and a water bottle. You can also rent a towel for $1 if you forget your own. For your comfort, refrain from eating a large meal for at least 2 hours before class begins.
Clothing, Perfumes, and Other Things to Know Before Coming: Be ready to practice barefoot. Wear comfortable and stretchy clothes (and avoid eating a large meal for at least 2-hours before class!) No strong perfumes, essential oils, or strong body odor, please. You are welcome to bring a water bottle into the studio.
Physical Limitations or Pregnancy: If you have a heart condition or any other serious ailment, physical limitation or are pregnant, please make sure to let your instructor know BEFORE class begins. It may be necessary to get an ok from your physician before starting on a new exercise routine.
Parking: Designated parking for our building is the lot on the South side of the building. Other options are the parking deck across Mason Street and the lot on the North side of the building during non-business hours.
Please take your mat home with you. We don’t have room for everyone to leave their mat at the studio. We are delighted that you feel comfortable enough to leave it at The Center, however, and happy to know you feel that at home and comfortable with us <3.
Children & Families: Adult classes are intended for students 16 years and older. If you’d like to attend adult classes with your child, you must ask permission specifically from the class instructor at least 24 hours IN ADVANCE. It is then the teacher’s discretion to allow a minor into an adult class. With the consent of that teacher, ages 16 and above may attend adult classes, unaccompanied by an adult. Family Yoga is always open to any age child(ren) and to all members of the family.
Class Cancellations: Due to inclement weather and other unforeseen circumstances, we occasionally have to cancel a class or workshop. Please make sure to check our website or FB page for notices on cancelations or call our phone number: 540.432.0644.
Refunds and Pass Extensions: All purchases and class passes are non-refundable and non-transferable except under certain circumstances. We only extend the expiration date of a class pass under certain circumstances – an extended illness, a sudden family emergency that takes you out of town, etc. Unfortunately, we cannot extend them due to vacations, a busy schedule, or a business trip. The class passes are discounted from our regular drop-in rate and given an expiration date to encourage you to come to classes. We know you’ll feel better if you do! Thanks for your understanding. Workshop and Master Class Refunds must be requested more than 48 hours before the start of the workshop, and are subject to a 20% admin fee.
