Membership/ Workshop Cancellation and Refunds

  • Memberships/Class passes are valid at both studio locations
  • Auto-pay Membership: You have the option to cancel or pause your membership at anytime. Pausing your membership cost $0/month and will allow you to come back at any time, in the rate that you are enrolled in. Cancelling your membership will turn off your auto-pay and if you choose to enroll in the future, you will be enrolled at the new rate for that enrollment period.  All cancellation requests must be made at least 3 days BEFORE your next billing cycle. No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at the sole and absolute discretion of Yoga Essence.  The provision of a credit in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
  • If you sign up and pay for a workshop and are unable to attend please contact us to cancel at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled time of the workshop. If your request for cancellation is received within the 48 hour period that is required you can get a refund or you can get a full refund credited to your Yoga Essence account.

If we receive your cancellation request less than 48 hours prior to the scheduled workshop a refund will not be possible. Cancellation requests must be made by email to: yogaessencestudio@gmail.com

Absence to a workshop is non-refundable. If you cancel on the day of the workshop or after it has taken place, a refund or credit will not be possible.
