registered. We will show you around the studio and get to know you a little before
we know how to make the appropriate modifications during your workout.

It happens! Please enter quietly and find a space where you can fit your mat. If you
are more than 5 minutes late, we ask that you do not enter the studio area in fairness
to other students in the class.

You can register days in advance or up until 30 minutes before a class. If it is after
the 30 minute mark, you can call the studio to see if there are openings available and
we can register you for class.

Childcare Policies and FAQs
How old does my child have to be?
Children must be at least 6 weeks old to attend!
Do I need to preregister?
Yes. We need to make sure the childcare room is staffed properly. You may register
up to 60 minutes before the class. If it is within that window, you will need to call the
studio to see if there is room for your little ones.
Can I bring snacks?
Unfortunately due to allergies, snacks are not welcome. However, you may bring a
water that is labeled with your child’s name.
Bottles are welcome for those littles who still need them.
Can I bring more than one child?
Yes! You will need to register each child individually on MINDBODY. The pricing per
child and family are listed above.
What do I need to do at drop off?
Please show up with ample time before class begins. Bring your child through the
main studio entrance. Take off everyone’s shoes before entering the studio and
childcare room. Leave any items that they may need with them, and make sure they
are labeled. Room is open 15 minutes before class begins. If you suspect a difficult
drop off, please leave ample time.
What is the policy on diaper changing and potty breaks?
Our childcare providers are wonderful, but they will not be handling anything
bathroom related. If your child needs a diaper or needs assistance in the bathroom,
we will come get you out of class. Please dispose of diapers outside of the studio.
Is there a late cancellation policy?
We understand emergencies happen, and children get sick. We would much rather
you cancel than spread their germs, so thank you! If you cancel on the MINDBODY
app within the “late cancellation” window of 4 hours, you will be charged a pass.
However, if you call the studio, we can help you cancel.
Will you come get me out of class for anything?
We will pull a parent out of class for the following:
-If a child is inconsolable after 10 minutes
-A safety concern
-Soiled diapers and/or clothing
-A child that needs assistance in the restroom
