WAITLIST POLICY

We have 4 spots in each class for you to request to be the next person added. This is referred to as our waitlist. If a student removes an in-studio booking, waitlisted students will be placed in class FIRST - and in order! You can be moved off the waitlist and placed in class up to 30 minutes prior to class start. Once in class, the Late Cancellation + No Show policy goes into effect. You can remove your waitlisted request at any point (the same way you booked it) - especially if you can no longer attend class or it is getting too close for travel time to the studio. We are unable to make exceptions and/or reservation changes via phone or email requests.

BOOK CONFIDENTLY

Class sizes are restricted to 1/4 capacity due to Covid-19 social distancing measures.  Please note that if you book and do not attend classes, you are holding this space from someone who could benefit from practice.  We kindly ask you to remove your reservations at minimum 120 minutes before class starts. Late Cancellations will be charged as though the class was attended for class cards + a $5 fee for unlimited membership holders. No Shows will be charged as though the class was attended for class cards + a $10 fee for unlimited membership holders. We are unable to make exceptions to these policies and ask that you book only when you are planning on attending your booking.




How to Live Stream!

Before contacting Samatva Yoga directly, please review here which will answer most of your frequently asked questions.

Step 1: Reserve Your Live Stream Class

  • Online booking cutoff is 5 minutes before any live stream class. Email link will be sent right away within 30 minutes of class start.
  • Class links will be emailed 30 minutes before class start. You will need to know your MindBody password.

Step 2: Get Ready to Use MBO Live Streaming

  • Spotify - Music for the class. Our teachers will offer suggested playlists before class via the streaming service Spotify.  You can download a FREE version here. 
  • Ritualize your space.  As with in-studio, make it special. Light a candle, diffuse your favourite essential oils, dim the lights, make tea/water etc.
  • Gather your props.  We strongly suggest investing in 2-3 blocks, 1-2 bolsters of different sizes and an eye bag to support your home practice.  You can, however, use books, blankets and couch cushions too.
  • Set up early for success.  If this is your first live stream, please set up early - by at least 15 minutes.  This will give you time to troubleshoot should you not have done so already.  Be sure to have updated your devices/computers to the latest versions. Live Stream Troubleshooting Guide. 
  • Turn on your camera.  We want to see you so we can guide you.  It is important to connect the teacher and student for safety, community and technique.  We need and want, to know who is in our classes. Thank you for sharing your video with us as we are with you.
  • Microphone + Chat If you are having streaming challenges, please let us know.  In addition, you can use the chat/microphone option to say hi, and thank you to your educator before + after class.

Step 3: Enjoy Your Class

  • Stay until the end. Discipline is the hardest part of the practice.  Setting aside the time and sticking to it can be challenging.  Stay with it and stay with us until the end.  We will close together in community, and you are an integral part.


We use MindBody Live for Streaming



Zoom limits us to have only one class streamable at a time; with MindBody Online Live Stream, we can offer a live service for every offering we have in the studio.  Offering all classes to you is the reason for the upgrade – it will work; we just need to get you set up correctly.
