REOPENING PRANA YOGA STUDIO SAFELY
COVID-19 Safety Measures and Policies for students, visitors and teachers (updated 14th Sept 2020)
Below we have outlined our reopening measures to ensure how we can stay safe and protected from the coronavirus. Our new safety measures comply with current advice from the Scottish Government and our booking procedures are revised in response to the ‘new normal’! This is a fluid situation and we expect changes shall be made over time as we feel appropriate and necessary but rest assured they are there to enable us to take steps towards reopening with everyone's best interests at heart.
We now have a new, revised timetable with our teachers rejoining the timetable :)
Please read the points below and let us know if you have any questions. We are over the moon to be reopening and we are well aware that in order for us to enable this we will have to work together to keep our studio a safe and happy place for everyone to enjoy.
1. Booking your classes (from 14th Sept 2020)
1.1 Please book any in-studio, online class or event via www.pranayogastudio.co.uk/book-here As space is very limited you must book your place in advance. Most of our in-studio classes will now operate as a 6 week block booking, however, if availability allows you can join the block at any point. Depending on availability there may also still be spaces for single classes, again, these spaces must be booked online in advance of your class time. We will not be able to accept drop-in attendees for in-studio classes. For online classes we now have a flexible online class pass, click here for more details: https://www.pranayogastudio.co.uk/pricing

1.3 Old Class Passes: For anyone who purchased a class pass after 1st January 2020 and still has credits remaining I’ve transferred the credit to its cash value on your account. You can use this amount towards any new bookings you wish to make.
1.4 Cancellations: If a cancellation is made more than 24hrs prior to the first class of the block a full refund will be granted. Any cancellations made within 24hrs will not be granted a refund. Cancellations cannot be made once the block commences. Should there be insufficient numbers for a class, both in-studio and online, the studio reserve the right to cancel and will issue the appropriate refund.
