Dream Yoga classes and workshops are offered on a first-come basis. When you register for a class or workshop, Dream Yoga makes a commitment to you to “hold your spot” therein. Your registration also affects our decision to hold or cancel a class, and secure/pay our teachers. We need at least 5 students to register to be able to offer a class..
When you register for an ongoing class, you make a commit to yourself. It helps ensure you do yoga or meditation regularly. If you practice regularly, you’ll benefit more from your practice. When you feel the benefits, you’ll keep practicing…and our goal for you is to practice and receive the many benefits of practice for a lifetime. By registering—whether it be for a workshop, a full class session, or as a Drop In—you are agreeing to the following statement which appears in our Registration System:
All registrations are subject to space availability. If a class or workshop is full, you can get on a WAITING LIST online or ask/email us to be added to our Waiting List. If a space becomes available, you will be notified via email.
Once you register, look for a confirmation email from Dream Yoga's registration system. Please plan to attend the class(es) you register for, unless you receive notice of class cancellation. Classes that are canceled will also be so shown in our On-Line Registration system.
Make-Ups - Classes
Enrolled students are encouraged to attend their registered class. In the event of illness, travel or other unavoidable absence, students are strongly encouraged to get the full experience of their course (and explore other classes) by making up any missed classes. Missed classes can be made up in a class suited to your ability level any time during the current session, before or after you miss a class.
Missed classes cannot be carried over to a later session.
Cancellation & Refunds - Classes
We need at least five (5) students to register for a class in order to hold it. If a class is canceled due to low registration or other reason, you will be notified by email. If Dream cancels your class before it starts, you will receive a full refund. If you are not registered for a class, but want to Drop In, please check our online schedule first to ensure the class has made.
Once a class begins, if you request a refund in writing, 100% of your fee is refunded minus a $25 administrative fee and the actual fee of each class attended/missed as of the date of written notification. There are no refunds after the third week of a class, and no exceptions to this policy. Tuition cannot be carried over to a later session, nor can missed classes be transferred to another (including family members). We try to be fair to all students, to our teachers and to the Studio by upholding these policies. Refunds for classes are calculated on the date a cancellation notice is given, not on the date of the last class attended or missed.
We do not extend the expiration dates for Class Passes, as the Pass Classes are discounted because you agree to use the pass by its expiration date.
Please Do not ask us to make exceptions to our policies.
Please help us be fair to all students, to our teachers, and to Dream!Our Class Registrations & Class Passes are discounted in return for your financial commitment.
When you register, for your commitment, YOU GET:
- A number of FREE classes.
- A variety of class options – in type, day and time.
- A guaranteed space in the class of your choice.
- Quality teachers who have top training, experience in teaching and providing options to meet your needs. Teachers with BIG caring hearts who truly want to support your journey.
- Consistency in teachers and programming.
- The opportunity to make-up classes in other classes and explore other teachers.
- Small classes (including Private Classes) tailored to meet your needs.
- An opportunity to be a part of, and benefit from, a true Sangha or yoga community that supports each other in our efforts to live consciously and holistically.
Plus you affect our programming: Dream determines which classes it can offer and pays your teachers based on your commitment.
- Registrations & Class Passes are not transferable. They cannot be shared by family members & friends (except the class 2 weeks of a session during our “Guest Make-Up” time.)
- Registrations for one session do not carry over into the next session.
- There are no refunds after the third week of your registration.
Class Passes do not extend past their expiration date.
THANK YOU for your understanding and support of our efforts to be fair to all (EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU IS SPECIAL!) and provide you the best learning experience possible. It means a lot to us that you commit (via registration or a Pass) with the understanding that, sometimes, you might need to donate unused classes to support Dream and its teachers. It does take a Village to have the Dream! We hope the gifts we give you through our service make it worth your full participation/support.
Cancellation & Refunds - Workshops
We need at least six (6) students to register for a workshop in order to hold it. If a workshop is canceled due to low registration, inclement weather or other reason, you will be notified by email if you are registered. If Dream cancels a workshop or event, you will receive a full refund.
There is a minimum $12 cancellation fee per workshop or special event if you cancel your workshop registration*. To receive a refund (minus the cancellation fee), you must cancel at least 5 days prior to the workshop. If you do not cancel and don’t attend a workshop you are registered for (and thus take a spot in the workshop), the full fee for the workshop is due. To be fair to all, there are no exceptions to this policy.
*Note: Refund policies vary between regular workshops and special trainings/weekend intensives. The Refund Policy stated on the description of the specific workshop when you register prevails. If not stated, the cancellation fee for special trainings is $12 plus 4% of tuition.
To cancel or drop a workshop, submit a "Drop Request" by email, on-line, or by filling out a Drop Request Form at Dream Yoga Studio.
Canceling a Private Session (Yoga, Meditation, Massage or Other Healing Art)
When you make an appointment, your session time, the teacher's (or Healing Art Practitioner’s) time, and the Session Room are reserved for you. If a private session is cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the session, the fee will be charge in full. There is no charge for a cancelled session if you give notice directly to the provider at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled session. We look forward to working/sharing with you, and are thankful for your consideration.
Ages for Class Participants
To attend a regular class, students should be at least 15 years old.
Your Personal Belongings & Lost/Stolen Items
Dream has never had a problem with theft. But it’s always a good idea to limit the valuables you bring with you into the Studio. Please don’t leave your keys, your wallet or purse in the Reception Area or Shoe Cubby. If you have a purse, please bring it into your classroom.
Dream Yoga Studio is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Putting anything in the Coat Closet, Shoe Cubby or elsewhere in the Studio is at your own discretion.
Studio & Student Etiquette
When folks walk into Dream Yoga’s door (or connect with us online), they often take a breath and let out a sigh of relief. They know they have arrived at a sanctuary—a place away from their normal lives. A safe place to let go, relax, be present to the moment…and do something special just for themselves.
- Please come early to give the teacher time to greet you, check you in, and get you settled in. Being on time means that you are on your mat, with your props, ready to go at the start time for the class. If you arrive late, come to class anyway. Enter mindfully and quietly.
- Inform the teacher before class or via email if you have any limiting injuries or health conditions, special needs or are pregnant. Also share your level of experience with Yoga or Meditation, especially if you're NEW.
- Respect the quietude by turning your cell phone OFF. Keep your phone on vibrate only for emergencies, and let the teacher know if you will be leaving early.
- Promote good breathing! Avoid wearing scents--perfume/cologne, body sprays/lotions, anything with fragrance.
THANK YOU for helping to create the Dream Yoga ‘sanctuary’
* A safe & supportive place for all to learn & share *
