Helpful Tips

 
 

Students should arrive fifteen minutes before class. Don't eat an hour before class. And we do recommend you bring your own sticky mat, if possible.




Accommodations

If you need a place to stay, please visit our accommodations page.




Attire

There is a changing room at the studio. Wear clothing you can move in (but no baggy clothes- they obscure alignment). We practice in bare feet. No perfume. No heavy jewelry.

 


 

Food

Do not eat for at least one hour before class. It is best to practice on an empty stomach.

 


 

Be on time

Students should arrive 15 minutes before the actual class time. Teachers begin each class with preparatory practices for what follows. It is unsafe and disruptive to come in late.

 


 

Not Feeling Well?

Do not come to class if you have any contagious condition. You are sharing everything in the studio with many other students.

 


 

Special Conditions (including pregnancy) & Injuries

Anyone with serious medical conditions or injuries should consult a doctor prior to participating in yoga class. Allied Yoga offers a wonderfully therapeutic practice and we encourage you to listen to your both your instructor and your body, asking for suggestions as to the appropriate modifications.

It is your responsibility to inform the instructor if you are pregnant or have any injuries prior to the start of class.

 


 

Props & yoga mats

Allied Yoga is a fully equipped studio. All props are provided including yoga mats, though we do recommend you purchase and bring your own sticky mat, if at all possible. We do have some for use and for sale at the studio as well.




Missed classes

Classes may be made up within the same session. Classes cannot be carried over to the next session.




Drop in policy

Drop-ins are permitted at the discretion of the instructor, and if space is available.

 


 

Weather Closings

Inclement weather policy: Cancellations will always be made at least 2 hours prior to the start of class. The notification of class cancellation will be posted on our schedule page, our Facebook page our Twitter feed and the studio voice mail will also be changed to reflect this. If there is no posting or voice mail (434.218.0580) change, please assume that class in still taking place as regularly scheduled.

Please make every attempt to make up canceled classes within the session. If for some reason you are unable to do so, please e-mail the office to make arrangements for a class credit to be used in the next session.

 


 

Classes and Membership Fees

Classes and membership fees are non-transferable. Class and membership fees may increase due to costs increases, but it is our intention to keep our prices reasonable. Allied Yoga may occasionally offer class, massage, or membership specials. A membership or class package expiration may be adjusted only for medical reasons. It is the responsibility of the student or membership holder to notify Allied Yoga at the time of the illness or injury. A statement of injury or illness must be documented in writing by a physician before any adjustment to the membership is made. If there are other extenuation circumstances, exceptions may be made on a per case basis, by contacting the office. Please note that vacations, travel, etc. do not constitute extenuating circumstances.

 


 

New Students

New students are required to sign a waiver prior to participating in their first class, please arrive early (at least 15 minutes), or you may fill out the necessary information in advance of your coming at our New Student Registration page.

 


 

Young Student Policy

Any student under 18 years of age must have a parent/guardian’s signature on the waiver.

Our classes are designed for students 16 years of age and older. Students 13 to 16 years of age may attend classes when a parent or guardian is in attendance for the same class. Any exceptions to these policies must be addressed with management prior to class.

** Minors may not sit in the reception area while the parent or guardian takes a class.**
