Terms & Conditions

PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING INTO A CLASS.

Om Shanti Yoga Studio is a boutique yoga studio offering high quality and excellence in teaching with a commitment to individualised care and attention. Because of this we have a maximum of 8 bookings per class, so bookings for all classes are essential to ensure a high level of quality for you. As life sometimes happens and from time to time people move between classes you might find numbers can fluctuate a little. 

All yoga classes offered at Om Shanti Yoga Studio run in 10 or 11 week terms. These terms will be similar to the school term dates, but not always the same so please check all yoga term dates.

To attend yoga classes at the studio, there are three options:

  1. pay per term in advance to secure your space
  2. purchase a 5 class pass valid for 10 weeks (please note that there may not always be spaces available and it is advisable to book your 5 classes in advanced as priority is given to term bookings)
  3. book and pay casually (please note there may not always be spaces available as priority is given to those who pay in advance)

Paying per term in advance

  • When you purchase a term of yoga classes you are automatically booked into the time slot you choose for the whole 10 or 11 weeks (depending on term length).
  • Payment is via paypal online and payable up front.
  • All online prices include a credit card processing fee.

5 Class Pass

5 Class pass is $90 and valid for 10 weeks from date of purchase

You may book your 5 classes in advance to avoid missing a place or book in week to week (please note that some classes are busy and you may not get into the class you would like if booking on the same day).

Casual attendance of classes

  • Casual classes are $20 per class (bookings essential).
  • Payment is online at the time of booking for all casual class attendance.
  • Some classes are busy and fully booked in advance. If you forget to book into class and turn up, please understand you may miss out that day.
  • To avoid disappointment please book in, via this link, phone call, text or email. Some classes will be fully booked and priority will be given to those who have booked in advance.
