Sometimes it's hard to remember to cancel a class you've registered for or something comes up and you need to cancel at the last minute. We understand!
Unfortunately, because we have limited spots in our classes that means the spot was unavailable to our other members. To ensure that everyone has as much access to our classes as possible, we need to enforce a Missed Class & Late Cancellation policy.
We've tried to make this policy as fair and reasonable as possible and the details are below so that this policy is clear. If you have any other questions or feedback, please email us!
Our members can book and cancel their classes as much as they need to but a charge will apply for missed classes and classes cancelled within 30 minutes of their start time (late cancelled).
No worries! To make sure that the policy is clear, each members will not be charged for their first 3 missed classes and late cancellations (total, not each).
This is the most common cause of missed and late cancelled classes and one of the main reasons that we have the 3 FREEBIES. When you are on one of our waitlists, we assume that you are still hoping for a spot in the class. You can be added to the class up to 30 minutes before the class and this is based on when another member cancels. For these reasons, we ask that you please treat waitlist registrations like you would a regular registration and remove yourself if you are no longer hoping to get a spot in the class.
If you're an unlimited member, the charge is $5+hst and if you're using class passes, you will have the class deducted from your pass.
