Our Courtesy Policy
Our mission is to get every body moving. We intend to empower those bodies to dig a little deeper, to explore, to listen, and to be aware of what you need. You are your best teacher and we are here to support that. We intend to create community. With that in mind, we have some asks of you so we can better serve the community as a whole.
Please arrive to class at least five minutes before class starts. This is to respect the class and others who are participating. We have online booking through Mindbody and ask that you book (booking closes an hour before class time starts) so we know how to set up the room. If you cannot make it to class, please cancel as soon as you know you can't make it, up to at least one hour before class time. This gives those who are on the waitlist the opportunity to take class.
Who can come?
We welcome all. We welcome beginners, to those who are experienced. We welcome your mom, dad, grandparent, we welcome your kids. Children can attend classes with their parent / legal guardian if they are able to participate in class for the entirety, without disrupting other participants. Please be considerate to others. Teachers are empowered to use their own music which may be unsuitable for some. Please use your own discretion.
During your class, we ask that all phones, bags, keys, be left outside of the room. One reason for this is space saving and safety reasons (we don't want anyone tripping), however the main reason is so you have the opportunity to focus on yourself for just one hour of time. You deserve it. Having these items in your mind triggers a to do list, a thought, a worry. Help us keep the space clear physically and energetically to give space to dive a little deeper into your own being.
In Studio Chatter
We encourage community building and getting to know your neighbour! However, the rule of thumb is that if someone is in shavasana there should be silence in the space. So if you enter the space before class and see someone lying on their mat, please respect that and take your conversation to the benches. Don't worry, we will let you know when class is starting! The same applies for after class - please hold in studio chatter until the last person is out of shavasana.
We are here to build community! Everyone is entitled to be here. Under no circumstances will bullying, demeaning, or exclusionary behaviour be accepted or permitted within this studio. The Practice and it's staff reserves the right to ask any clients to remove themselves from the space given any situation where they deem behaviour to be that of an exclusionary, or of a bullying nature, or where anyone is made to feel unsafe. This is a place of love, we invite you to do so.
Your safety is our priority! If the weather & roads are bad we will cancel class via MindBody so make sure that you have your notifications on! We will also post on our Instagram @practicemovement.ca
Make sure to check before you leave for class if you are unsure!
If you have pruchased a drop in or have a class pass, don't worry - you will be able to use that for another class!
