Studio Policy

Membership & schedules

Karma’s current timetable is available at karma-iom.co.uk/timetable. Timetables are subject to change at any time, although Karma will endeavour to contact those members affected if a class is cancelled or rescheduled.

Karma operates on a reduced timetable during the Isle of Man TT Festival, and generally on a reduced schedule, or closed, on some Bank Holidays.

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 we are 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 and 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.

Pregnancy

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

Please see our Yoga Pregnancy advice sheet for more information.

Karma cannot be held responsible for ANY personal injury sustained during a class. Please choose a class that best suits your ability.

 

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

 

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 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 and keeping yourself on mute. 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.

A unique tranquil online community.

At Karma you have the choice to attend beginners, intermediate or advanced level classes. Non-members are welcome to attend any of the classes on the schedule.

Courses continuously run for complete beginners to understand and learn the fundamental basic of yoga.
