6.    Classes have a 30-minutes flexible starting time. The front door will be locked outside that 30-minutes time frame for safety reasons.
7.    Personal belongings are brought into the studio at student’s own risk and AYA does not accept liability for any loss or damage to personal items.
8.    Pre-registration is required for classes as space is limited. A link to the class sign up sheet is sent via email weekly to the students.

Payment 
1.    Payment for classes is on donation basis. The student can donate any amount when joining a class, in cash or via bank payment. A link for bank payment is also available on the website.
2.    Donations can be done per class, per week, per month, or whenever the students can afford a payment. The system is based on trust.

4.    AYA reserves the right to cancel the workshop in case of not enough students participating or personal/business circumstances. In such circumstances a full refund of the paid fees will be processed immediately.
5.    Workshop bookings are processed via EventBrite and their terms & conditions apply. 


Health
1.    Students are held responsible for their own wellbeing. It is the responsibility of the student to notify teachers of any injury, illness, or conditions (physical, mental or emotional) that may impact their practice. If in doubt whether this practice is suitable or not, students should contact AYA asking for advice before coming to class.
2.    Students are advised to seek medical advice before coming to a class or workshop if they have concerns over their physical condition or are currently under medical/therapeutic treatment. 
3.    AYA reserves the right to refuse access to practice to any student if, in its discretion, it considers that the health of the student (or of any fellow students, teachers or staff) may be at risk during practice.
4.    By participating in classes or workshops, students understand that this yoga practice includes intense physical movements, as ashtanga yoga is an energetic active form of yoga and there is a risk of injuries during practice. By joining our classes the student accepts the risk of injuries.   
5.    As a student, always listen to your own body. If at any time during the class or workshop, students experience discomfort or strain, they are advised to gently come out of the posture. Should the pain or discomfort persist, we recommend you inform the teacher as soon as possible. Students may rest at any time during the class. 
6.    Students are required to follow the instructions of the teacher at all times and any failure to do so will be at student’s own risk.
7.    AYA’s teachers and staff are fully trained and highly experienced and will always do their best to provide a safe and open environment for practice. AYA does therefore decline any liability for physical or mental injuries.

AYA reserves the right to vary or revoke any of the Terms & Conditions from time to time as necessary. The latest version will be published on our websites and is binding for participants.
