Fees and Registration Please see the following for specific Fees and guidance on How to Register:
Dream Yoga classes and workshops are offered on a first-come basis. When you register for a class or workshop, Dream Yoga makes a commitment to you to “hold your spot” therein. Your registration also affects our decision to hold or cancel a class. We offer each class or workshop when there are at least six students registered.
Registration is a commitment to yourself and helps ensure you do yoga, tai chi or meditation regularly. If you practice regularly, you’ll benefit more from your practice. When you feel the benefits, you’ll keep practicing…and our goal for you is to practice and receive the many benefits of practice for a lifetime. By registering—whether it be online, by mail, phone or in person—you are also agreeing to the following statement:
I understand that Yoga/Meditation/Tai Chi are physical disciplines that require a certain amount of mental concentration and physical strength and endurance. I agree to work at my own pace and according to my own limitations, and I take full responsibility for my safety and well-being. I hereby release Dream Yoga Studio, LLC, its instructors, and T&M McLean Ventures/Metro Management Services from any liability associated with my participation in any classes and/or private instruction provided.
I also understand: Dream Yoga Studio is a member of a network of yoga studios affiliated with Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Stockbridge, Massachusetts. This yoga studio, like all Kripalu affiliated yoga studios, is independently owned and operated. Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health is neither responsible nor legally or financially liable for the activities conducted at this yoga studio.
I understand and agree to the Registration, Payment & Refund Policies articulated below for classes and worskhops. I also agree that I am solely responsible for the safekeeping of my personal belongings while I attend class.
All registrations are subject to space availability. If a class or workshop is full, ask or email us to be added to our WAITING LIST. If a space becomes available, you will be called.
Dream does not confirm registrations. Please plan to attend the class(es) you register for, unless you receive notice of class cancellation. Classes that are canceled will also be so shown on the On-Line Registration section.
Make-Ups - Classes
Enrolled students are encouraged to attend their registered class. In the event of illness, travel or other unavoidable absence, students are strongly encouraged to get the full experience of their course (and explore other classes) by making up any missed classes. Missed classes can be made up in a class suited to your ability level any time during the current session. Simply email your intention to make up a class in a class of your choice before or after your absence. If you do NOT get a response, it means there is room in the class for you to make up. Missed clsses cannot be carried over to a later session, nor can missed classes be transferred to another (including family members). We try to be fair to all students, our teachers and to the Studio by upholding these policies.
Cancellation & Refunds - Classes
We need at least six (6) students to register for a class in order to hold it. If a class is canceled due to low registration or other reason, you will be notified by email or phone. If Dream cancels your class before it starts, you will receive a full refund.
There is no charge if you make a mistake when registering on-line and immediately drop a class you registered for. Drop the class on-line. Then await notification from the Studio that your Account has been adjusted appropriately.
There is a $15 administrative fee if you sign up for a class and give notice at least 4 days before the class that you want to drop the class; and a $7 admin fee to switch to another class. There is a $45 administrative fee if you drop a class less than 3 days before the class. This helps ensure there is time for others on the Waiting List to register for the class.
Once a class begins, if you request a refund in writing, 100% of your fee is refunded minus a $45 administrative fee and the actual fee of each class attended/missed as of the date of written notification. There are no refunds after the third week of a class, and no exceptions to this policy (as we reserve your spot and hold classes based on your registration and commitment). Tuition cannot be carried over to a later session, nor can missed classes be transferred to another (including family members). We try to be fair to all students, to our teachers and to the Studio by upholding these policies.
Refunds for classes are calculated on the date a cancellation notice is given, not on the date of the last class attended or missed.
Cancellation & Refunds - Workshops
We need at least six (6) students to register for a workshop in order to hold it. If a workshop is canceled due to low registration, inclement weather or other reason, you will be notified by email or phone if you are registered. If Dream cancels a workshop or event, you will receive a full refund.
There is a $10 cancellation fee per workshop or special event if you cancel your workshop registration*. To receive a refund (minus the cancellation fee), you must cancel at least 5 days prior to the workshop. If you do not cancel and don’t attend a workshop you are registered for (and thus take a spot in the workshop), the full fee for the workshop is due. To be fair to all, there are no exceptions to this policy.
*Note: Refund policies vary between regular workshops and special trainings/weekend intensives. The Refund Policy stated on the description of the specific workshop prevails.
To cancel or drop a workshop, submit a "Drop Request" by email, on-line, or by filling out a Drop Request Form at Dream Yoga Studio.
Canceling a Private Session (Yoga, Meditation, Massage or Other Healing Art)
If you make an appointment for Private Instruction or Healing Arts Service and fail to keep it without notice, you will owe the full price of the session (100%). There is no charge for missed appointments if you give notice at least 24 hours in advance or have an unavoidable emergency.
Bad Weather Cancellations
We do our best to keep classes, workshops and Healing Arts services going according to schedule when the weather isn’t ideal for travel. But the safety of our students, clients and teachers is always our number one concern when making decisions to hold—or to cancel—a class, workshop or service.
For group classes: Generally(but not at all certainly), if the Fairfax County Schools cancel activities or classes, so MIGHTl Dream Yoga Studio.
Notice. If a class or workshop has to be canceled due to inclement weather, as best is possible, we will post an announcement on Dream’s answering machine at least one hour before the class is scheduled to start. Time permitting, we might also send email to students in a cancelled class/workshop, so please check your email. Sometimes, we might also post cancellations on the FRONT PAGE of Dream's website. If you are uncertain about a class or workshop, the BEST thing to do is to call 703-448-YOGA (9642) for an updated message.
No Notice. If there isn’t a notice and the Studio is closed when you arrive for class, please wait a few minutes, as your teacher might be delayed from weather-related traffic. If your teacher doesn’t show, we apologize in advance for your inconvenience.
Making Up. When classes are cancelled by Dream because of inclement weather, you are encouraged to make up the cancelled class in any class suitable to your skill level and interest in the current session. An announcement will be made whenever Dream offers a full class as a “Cancelled Class Make-Up Class.” There are no refunds for cancelled classes. We try to reschedule cancelled workshops; but if you can't attend the rescheduled workshop, we will refund your tuition.
Method of Payment
Dream Yoga Studio accepts VISA and MASTERCARD credit cards online and at the Studio. A minium purchase via credit card is $15. Checks and cash are also accepted as payment for classes, private sessions, massage and other healing arts, and yoga props and other products at the Studio.
Ages for Class Participants
To attend a regular class, students should be at least 16 years old. Younger students should attend classes for Teens, Tweens or Children.
Your Personal Belongings & Lost/Stolen Items
Dream has never had a problem with theft. But it’s always a good idea to limit the valuables you bring with you into the Studio. Please don’t leave your keys, your wallet or purse in the Reception Area or Shoe Cubby. If you have a purse, please bring it into your classroom.
In the main classroom, please leave purses and other large personal items that are not yoga props or cover-ups by the door to the left when you enter the classroom. This helps keep the classroom clear for yoga use.
Dream Yoga Studio is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Putting anything in the Coat Closet, Shoe Cubby or elsewhere in the Studio is at your own discretion.
If you do lose an item, please look in the Lost & Found Box, or contact Luann regarding watches or other items too valuable to place in the Box.
Studio & Student Etiquette
When folks walk into Dream Yoga’s door, they often take a breath and let out a sigh of relief. They know they have arrived at a sanctuary—a place away from their normal lives. A safe place to let go, relax, be present to the moment…and do something special just for themselves.
It takes a village to make Dream a place of refuse, a place to come home to YOU. To do your part, please read and honor our Etiquette Guidelines.
