Yes. All bookings must be made online via our website or our FIT BY WIX App. The App is much easier.

Then you are asked to sign a liability waiver form & you are then sent a confirmation email & a booking reminder. If you don't get a booking confirmation email it means you haven't booked.

Staff members cannot book you in or reserve spots for you.

HOW DO WAITLISTS WORK?

If a class is full, you can add yourself to the waitlist. If a space becomes available, an email will automatically go to your email (sometimes it may land in your spam, double check there). Our cancellation policy still applies so it is important to cancel if you can no longer attend and we ask you remove yourself from the waitlist to give another Yogi an opportunity to practice.
