We have built our teaching philosophy based on a three pronged approach: fostering community, addressing the aches and pains of pregnancy, and integrating childbirth education. We believe the best way for the student to reap of the benefits of our teaching and community is to attend class on a regular basis. To accommodate the busy lives of our students, we offer 14 prenatal yoga classes a week.
Classes are filled on a “first come, first served” basis. While we did consider preregistration like many other studios offer, we serve a very unique population. Studios that offer preregistration often have a cancellation policy ranging from 1 – 24 hours advance notice without being charged. Given that we serve pregnant women and new moms with babies, this policy would not be appropriate considering last minute changes can occur more often with a baby or a pregnant mom then your average person. Looking at the bigger picture, we feel the best way to accommodate our community is to run on a “first come, first served basis.” Please aim to arrive 10-15 minutes ahead of time to assure a space. We appreciate the community’s understanding for this policy
With the exception of bed rest accompanied by a doctor’s note, the Prenatal Yoga Center cannot be responsible for providing additional make-ups or issuing any credit for classes missed as a result of scheduling conflicts, vacations, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control.
If you are put on bed rest, please notify the studio immediately and any remaining classes will be transferred to Baby & Me or Postnatal Yoga.
The Prenatal Yoga Center cannot be responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for classes missed as a result of scheduling conflicts, vacations, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control. We strongly recommend you complete your courses prior to your 37th week. We will not refund any payment due to labor after your 37th week which is considered full term, however we will offer 50% credit for any missed workshops or events due to premature labor.
If you need to cancel your commitment to a workshop, you must cancel at least two weeks prior to the event. You will receive a refund minus 10% processing fee. If you cancel within two weeks of the workshop, if the space can be filled, you will receive a refund minus 10% processing fee. If the space cannot be filled there will not be a refund.
Latecomers will be admitted to class at the teachers discretion.
Please note: These classes are intended to serve as a resource to the pre and postnatal communities. If you are not pregnant or recently pregnant, and you are hoping to “observe” class or take class in order to get a sense of what is covered, we cannot accommodate you. Please see our Teacher Training Program, offered twice yearly.
