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 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. 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.
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 the building. 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. All unclaimed items are washed and donated to the Salvation Army on a regular basis.
Green and Clean
We try to use mostly natural/biodegradable products when able to keep our space clean. Plastic, paper and water bottles are re-cycled. Please place your used bottles in the re-cycling bin provided.
For your convenience we provide a natural mat cleaner made from Tea Tree oil, that is 100% non-toxic and biodegradable. We do ask that you wait at least 5 minutes after the end of class before cleaning your mat and avoid spraying other students in the process, especially after a yoga class to allow everyone a peaceful undisturbed Savasana.
