Masks are mandatory and most be worn at all times when in-studio. Please keep your mask on during class unless exempt. If you’re unable to wear a mask during class, we kindly invite you to take one of our awesome live stream classes
Exemptions are for people with health conditions or with physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear one, people who cannot remove a mask on their own, children under the age of 12 and/or people who need to remove their masks to communicate due to another person’s hearing impairment
Blatant disregard and/or abuse of the above exemptions, will result in loss of membership privileges and ability to practice at the studio.
Waiver of liability
Before attending classes at The Studio Comox Valley, we require that all students 18 years of age or older, sign a liability waiver either online (when creating an account and/or purchasing a class) or in-studio, releasing The Studio Comox Valley of ALL liability while on the premises or partaking in one of our virtual live stream classes online. Students younger then 18 years of age, must have a legal guardian or parent sign the liability waiver on their behalf. If you choose to participate in one of our virtual live stream classes in the background/as a guest of a student who is attending one of these classes, you do so at your own risk and the studio will not be held liable for any injuries, damages or losses as a result.
Virtual Live Stream/VOD Classes
In order for us to teach our classes properly and most importantly, safely, we need to see and be seen by our students. As such, we recommend and encourage students to select their video “on” so that the teacher can properly and fully see students during all phases of the class, to insure that postures and/or exercises are being performed correctly and safely. Under these conditions, we consider the class to be instructional.
We fully understand and appreciate that not all students are comfortable having their video selected “on”, due to privacy and/or security concerns. In addition, device location, orientation and practice space layout, may prevent the teacher from being able to properly and fully see students during all phases of the class. These same issues are also present when a student chooses to utilize our Video On Demand (VOD) service. As we want everyone to benefit from our classes and to take everyone’s preferences and circumstances into account, under these conditions, we consider this to be a shared practice and non-instructional.
Please be sure to fully familiarize yourself with the Waiver Of Liability Policy above, before you or others you know, choose to participate in these classes.
Class Reservation Cancellation
If you can no longer make it to class, please be sure to cancel your reservation at least 30 minutes before class starts. If you don’t or if you no-show for class, you are preventing other students from being able to take class and your account maybe charged or a class deducted from your pass (multi-class or drop-in) as if you had attended class. Multi-class pass holders will have a class deducted from their pass. Annual and auto-pay members, one month pass, one week pass or 7 day intro pass holders will be charged a no-show/late cancel fee of $15.00.
Memberships and Discounts
We offer discounts and memberships at discounted rates, to allow our community to pick the pass or membership that best suits their needs and situation. These are a privilege and not a right. If a student abuses this privilege or takes advantage of our good will, their membership maybe cancelled and they maybe prevented from taking advantage of these privileges in future. It’s simple… be nice, be grateful and be honest.
In accordance with B.C. Sales regulations you may receive a full refund on products or services within 10 days of purchase, provided you have a valid receipt and the item or service is unused.
If you are ill, injured, or posted out of town with the military or your job, we do offer complimentary extensions to allow you to fully utilize your pass. Extensions are granted on a case by case basis. Please contact us, and we will review your request.
Lost and Found
We cannot be held responsible for items left or lost at the studio. Please remove all of your belongings before you leave thestudio. If you do happen to forget something please contact us immediately with your name and a detailed description of the item so that we can put it aside for you if found. For the safety of both staff and students, all unclaimed items will be deposed of.
