  • Please change in the changing rooms provided, we ask students to not change in the toilets as we share these with other businesses in our building.

3.3 Each Session is available as, and will be specifically booked only as, a group Session including other participants as well as You.
3.4 You may book each Session in person at our premises, online, by phone or by email to info@yogakulaleeds.co.uk. You may book and pay for each Session separately as a one-off Session. However, if instead You book a Series and we accept that booking, the discounted price shown in Our Price List will apply to each Session in that Series if the number of Sessions in the Series is completed by You.
3.5 When you book for any Session and that session is part of a Series, any booking (or re-booking of a cancelled Session) must be within the applicable Validity Period of the Series. A Session not booked (or rebooked) for a date within the Validity Period will be lost. Unless cancellation occurs in circumstances where You are entitled to a refund under these Terms and Conditions, no refund will be due.

We will be entitled to deduct that charge from sums You paid in advance for that Session, and we shall refund any balance to You. For this purpose, if that Session was part of a Series, the sum paid in advance for it will be the total sum paid for the Series divided by the total number of Sessions in the Series, less any discount that we have provided by virtue of it being a Series booking.
3.10 We may cancel a Session booked by You at any time before the time and date of that Session in the following circumstances:
3.10.1 The Teacher [and any other required staff] and/or required equipment or facilities necessary for the Session are not available; or

3.11 We will use all reasonable endeavours to start the Session You have booked at its scheduled start time, but the start may be delayed by overrun of a previous Session or by other circumstances. If a delay to the start is at least 30 minutes, or, if at any time before or after You arrive for a Session we notify You that there will be a delay of at least that time, You may cancel the Session and we will refund to You in full the payment that You have made to Us for that Session unless it was paid for as part of a Series in which case the final sentence of Clause 3.9 (as to rebooking or refund) will also apply to cancellation under this sub-Clause 3.11.
3.12 Sessions, teachers, equipment, and prices are subject to change from time to time but we will try to give You as much prior notice as possible of any such changes.
3.13 We reserve the right to expel You from a Session if Your conduct is in Our reasonable opinion unacceptable, or it is or may be in Our reasonable opinion harmful to the Studio’s reputation, or if it amounts to Your breach of these Terms and Conditions, or where in Our reasonable opinion such expulsion is otherwise in the interests of Our other clients. If we expel You, You will not be entitled to any refund or credit for a Session started but not completed due to expulsion.
3.14 Where the contract we make with You is not made on Our premises, the Regulations give You the rights set out in this sub-Clause 3.14, and they will be in addition to the rights given to You by the above provisions of this Clause 3. You may for any reason cancel a booked Session during the 14 day period after we accept that booking, but if the booking includes any Session(s) on a date which is before the end of that 14 day period, and if You have expressly requested Us to provide any such Session(s) in that 14 day period and we do so, You may not cancel that or those requested Session(s) and You must pay for them in accordance with Clause 4, and You may only cancel any other Session(s) which are either one offs or part of a Series covered by that booking. If You request that Your booking be cancelled, You must confirm this in any way convenient to You. If You cancel as allowed by this clause 3.14, and You have already made any payment(s) to Us for the booking, we will refund the payment(s) to You within 14 days of receiving Your cancellation less the amount due for the Session(s) covered by that booking that we have provided and an administration fee of 5%. For this purpose, where any one or more Sessions are part of a Series, then You may cancel such Sessions booked for any date(s) after that 14 day period, and we will refund for each such cancelled Session the total Series price amount divided by the total number of Sessions in the Series, less any discount that we have provided by virtue of it being a Series booking.

6. Fitness, Health and Safety
6.1 You acknowledge that Sessions may be physically strenuous and You agree that You voluntarily participate in a Session with full knowledge that even if the Teacher and any other teacher involved in the Session is not negligent there is an inherent risk of personal injury or illness arising from Your participation in any exercise program and use of specialist equipment.

Advice provided by the Teacher or any other teacher involved in a Session at no time constitutes medical advice and is not a substitute for advice provided by a medical professional.
6.5 You agree that when You apply to register, and also when You book and attend any Session, that will be Your confirmation that You have no health or fitness problems (including, but not limited to cardiac irregularities; spinal, bone, joint, tendon or ligament injuries; spells of dizziness; asthma or other breathing difficulty; diabetes; epilepsy or other allergy) which may affect your participation in any Session, or that you have consulted and been signed off for physical activity by a medical practitioner before attending a session.

6.6.3 We will discuss with You any such matter that You tell Us, and inform You if we decide not to accept Your booking because of that medical, health or fitness issue or special need. If we do accept Your booking, You must act in accordance with any instructions provided by Us relating to the issue.
6.7 If You do not tell Us before a Session of anything referred to in sub-Clause 6.5 or 6.6 that we then discover, we will be entitled not to provide all or any part that or any other Sessions You have booked and to treat any such Sessions (or part of them) as cancelled by You without notice, in which case we may make a charge to You as set out in sub-Clause 3.11 above for the Session in or before which we discovered the matter referred to in sub-Clause 6.5 or 6.6. If such a Session is part of a Series, we may also cancel the remaining Sessions in the Series and in that case we will refund You for each of the remaining Sessions an amount equal to the total price for the Series divided by the total number of Sessions in the Series.
6.8 You must not attend any Session when under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs or immediately following a heavy meal.
6.9 You should arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start time of a Session, and before any warm up involved in that Session, to allow for a prompt start.
