Terms & Conditions and shala etiquette

Terms & Conditions of use of yoga studio

The Prana Vashya Yoga Studio (Leicester) is built upon a strong foundation of trust between the teacher and student.  By using this website and/or attending the Prana Vashya Yoga Studio, you agree to the following terms and conditions and you are respectfully asked to be mindful of the shala / yoga studio etiquette (see below).

Pre-booking of classes is essential due to space restraints in the yoga studio/ shala. Where possible, you must give 24 hours prior notice of cancellation for any pre-booked class, failing which an £8 cancellation fee is payable.

All new students are required to complete a “New Student Health Questionnaire” either before or during their first class.

Please inform the teacher of any injuries, operations, pregnancy or such-like.  If you are receiving any physiotherapy therapy treatment for injuries then you must inform the teacher and if you have been given a physiotherapy exercise routine, then you will be asked to briefly demonstrate the same to the teacher for clarity (so please arrive at the studio a little early to accommodate this).

All students must take full responsibility for their own health during the yoga classes, including any injuries.  To the fullest extent permissible by law, the teacher cannot be held sensibly liable for any personal injuries incurred by the students own recklessness or willful disregard of the teacher’s commands / instructions.

All students are welcome to leave their bicycles behind the side gate.  However, neither the teacher nor the Prana Vashya Yoga Studio can guarantee that members of the general public will not enter the same and cause damage to property and/or engage in criminal activity.  Accordingly, you leave your bicycle at your own risk.

If any provision or part-provision of this agreement is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted.  Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of this agreement.
