** Karma does not charge an annual membership fee so by signing up to a monthly membership you are demonstrating a commitment to the studio to gain benefits of reduced class fees. Standing orders must run for a minimum of six months. All cancellations must be given in writing, or an administration fee of £35 will incur. Similarly, refunds will not be given for ‘time unused’. It will be your responsibility to cancel a standing order. Due to data protection I am not allowed to do this. Refunds cannot be given if you ‘forget’ to cancel a standing order  

** Memberships, and events are also not transferable or refundable once purchased.

To re-instate a cancelled standing order there will be an administration fee of £35. Karma reserves the right to change the price structure at any time Karma also reserves the right to promotional offers to non-members


Your practice

It is your responsibility to make Karma aware of any medical conditions or physical problems which may restrict your practice. Please always make your teacher aware if you are suffering from any particular physical or emotional problems in order that he/she can take account of this during class.

Some styles of yoga are not advisable for those suffering from the following conditions:

High or low blood pressure
Neck or back injuries
Hernias
Glaucoma
Epilepsy
Hypertension

Clients who have undergone surgery recently and pre or postnatal ladies in particular are not advised to practice physically demanding forms of yoga and MUST inform Karma of their condition.

If you think you may be pregnant.

It is NOT advisable to participate in a general yoga class in the first trimester of pregnancy.

See our Yoga Pregnancy advice sheet

Karma cannot be held responsible for ANY personal injury sustained during a class. Please choose a class that best suits your ability. This way your practice will flourish and you will receive the full benefits of yoga.

 

Before class

Please ensure that you book a place in class in advance and arrive on time for classes. Booked space cannot be guaranteed; if you are late your space will be given to someone else

Leave enough time to arrive at the studio, gather your thoughts and be mindful before practice.

Classes are closed to entry 5 minutes after the start time.

Unattended sessions in prepaid courses and workshops are not transferable or refundable.

Yoga is best practised with bare feet. Shoes are not allowed in the studio. Personal belongings of value can be taken into the studio, but mobile phones must be turned off or switched to silent during class. Karma cannot be held responsible for items left in the changing area. Try not to eat at least two hours before a class.

 

In class

It is important to listen carefully to instructions, and that you never try to practice an unfamiliar pose without first practicing the appropriate preparatory poses or without the assistance of a teacher present. You may put yourself or other clients at risk of injury. Holding inverted poses such as head or shoulder stands at length should be avoided during menstruation.

If you choose to leave class before relaxation, or you arrive whilst another class is in progress, please consider others by keeping noise levels down while in the changing area. When practising yoga you are encouraged to focus on the breath, but please don’t hold your breath. Deep breathing may not feel natural at first, but with practice it will become second nature.

Above all, we want you to enjoy the practice, the journey! Practice, practice and you will certainly feel many benefits.
