It controls the spread of infection, disinfects and improves air quality, providing air sterilisation and purification… OH YES!

In both cases adult (18+) will need to countersign their completed registration form.
Latecomers Policy at BYC hot yoga:
If it is your first time practising at BYC, you need to be in the yoga room from the very beginning of class. This is to ensure that the teacher knows you are new and if you are working with any illness or injuries, so they can take good care of you.
Hot Yoga: Latecomers, who have practised at BYC, will be permitted into class ONLY before the end of the first breathing exercise, at the discretion of Managers and Reception staff.
All other classes: Students are required to be in the room for the start of the class. This is for their own safety and to cause least disruption to the class.
BYC Refund Policy:
All BYC Class Cards are non refundable, non freezable & non transferable.
We will of course hold class cards for pregnancy and/or medical reasons. For medical/injury class card hold we require a doctor, physio, chiropractors (or whoever you are seeing in regards to the issue) note, attaining to the issue and that it has been keeping you from your yoga, emailed to us at email@example.com.
