Fee policy
For most classes, there is a scale of fees. I ask you to be responsible for paying the appropriate rate for you. I don't do any checks. Take this as a part of your practice – it is! Please take into account your circumstances. If you’re a retired person with two pensions and your own home, or a student supported by a well-paid partner, you’re probably not in financial hardship. You may be if you’re supporting other people and on a low wage. Please be aware that:

 

  • Classes and events have to be financially viable in order to take place.

  • The giving and receiving of teaching, therapy and facilitation is grounded in a balanced exchange of energies.

  • This work is the way I make my living.

  • Among the ethical foundations of yoga are satya, ‘honesty’, and asteya, ‘taking only what we are entitled to’.

 

If you can realistically pay the full rate, please pay it. If you need a subsidised class, then please do take one. If you are struggling to pay any fee, please get in touch. I want classes to be accessible to everyone, irrespective of income.

Cancellation policy
For classes there is a 24-hour cancellation policy. Please log into your account to cancel. If you have given 24 hours’ notice, you will receive a class credit to your account. If you have given less than 24 hours’ notice, no class credit will be given and your payment cannot be refunded or transferred. Classes must be used within 42 days and cannot be refunded or extended if not used within that period.

For one-to-one sessions there is a 48-hour cancellation policy. Please contact me if you need to cancel. If you have given 48 hours’ notice, we will reschedule your session. If you have given less than 48 hours
’ notice, your payment cannot be used for another session or refunded. Blocks of sessions must be used within six months and cannot be refunded or extended if not used within that period.

Covid-19 safety

While all covid restrictions have now been removed in England, I am continuing to limit numbers for in-person classes. With cases once again rising, I am upping ventilation and sanitisation. Omicron is not so serious for most of us, but it’s still unpleasant and presents all sorts of practical and financial challenges. Please do not come to a class if you have any kind of infectious lurgy. If you have any questions or particular needs in this area, do get in touch.

Inclusion and accessibility
I do my best to create safe space for people of all ethnicities, sexualities, genders, neurologies and dis/abilities. As an Autistic person, I’m aware that what excludes us is often invisible to others, so if there’s anything you need in order to have full access to a class, or anything you’d like me to know, please do talk to me
 – we can work it out together.

 

Where possible, group spaces are wheelchair-accessible: details are on individual class listings. For more information, please get in touch
