Studio Policies

Our goal is to create a grounding, supportive space for as many students as possible in every single class we offer, without space going to waste unnecessarily. To do that, we have a few guidelines in place. We believe clarity is kind, so we provide these policies on this page as a way of further communicating with our community. 

Best Practices:

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the start time of class.
  • Please be on your mat at the start time of class.
  • Please no electronics in the studio room. 
  • You must be 16 years old or older to practice at M3Yoga.
  • Do not leave class early unless it is an emergency. This helps prevent disrupting the experience for other students.

Pre-registrations:

  • When you sign up online or through our app, you are guaranteed a spot in the class. That’s why we require pre-registration.
  • After you’ve registered online, please plan to arrive at least 10-15 minutes before the class starts and don’t forget to check-in at the desk before heading into the studio.

Waitlist:

  • Even when a class appears full, you may, and should, add yourself to the waitlist. When a cancellation is made, the first name on the waitlist gets automatically added to the class. 
  • If you are signed up for notifications, you will receive an email or text message as soon as you are moved off the waitlist. 
  • Once you are added to the class from the waitlist you become responsible for attending or canceling. If you are on a waitlist and you know that you don’t plan on coming in for class, make sure to remove yourself so you aren’t added without adequate time to make it into the studio.
  • To subscribe to waitlist emails, stop by the front desk or email us. 
  • Make sure you pre-register for class early. Our registration windows open on various rolling windows depending on your membership.
  • Class spots are forfeited 3 minutes into class time; this means if you do not arrive 3 minutes into class, we may give your spot to a waiting student.

Door Locking:

  • We lock the doors to the studio 5 minutes after class time. Our early morning classes, Candlelight Yin, Restorative and Sound Bath classes are locked at class time. No late entry will be allowed for those classes.

No Shows & Cancellation Policy:

Please note, if you have not checked in 3 minutes prior to class start time, your spot will be given to any waiting Warrior.

Class Cancellations

  • You must cancel your class 4 hours or more prior to class start time in order to unreserve your spot.
  • Late canceling less than 4 hours prior to class start time will result in a $10 charge to your card on file or M3 account and must be paid prior to your next class.
  • All late cancel fees will automatically be charged to a credit card on file at the time of cancellation.
  • Late cancel fees are all donated to our M3 Outreach program, which helps bring yoga and mindfulness practices to schools, nonprofits and other populations, and membership scholarships.
  • If you late cancel a drop in or 10 class pass, you forfeit that class and cannot use it to sign up for another.

If you need to cancel a reservation, log in on our website or in the M3 app, find the class you need to cancel and hit the cancel button.

No-Shows

  • No shows without cancellations will result in a $15 charge to your credit card on file or M3 account and must be paid prior to your next class. These are charged automatically 12 hours after the class you missed ends.
  • No show fees are all donated to our M3 Outreach program, which helps bring yoga and mindfulness practices to schools, nonprofits and other populations, and membership scholarships.
  • If you no show a drop in, 10 class pass, Mini membership or Silver membership, you forfeit that class and cannot use it to sign up for another.

These fees help us ensure everyone mindfully registers and cancels reservations, but aren’t meant to be punitive toward being a human and having a busy, full life. We get that things happen! These fees also aren’t for profit and go right back to paying for our scholarship program each month.

We do our best to work with you on our fees. We always waive the first fee of the calendar month for you, and do not charge you if you’re sick, got stuck in traffic or had an emergency come up. If this happens, please always email us (the day you late cancel or no show explaining your situation, so the team can take it into consideration.

Refund & Returns:

  • We do NOT offer refunds on any purchases.
  • We do NOT offer extensions on class passes or intro offers.
  • In the event of local, state, or federal government mandated business closure for public health and/or safety reasons or other business interruptions, all memberships will continue and grant the holder access to virtual livestream and/or pre-recorded video classes. No refunds will be issued for unused time on prepaid memberships.

  • Memberships begin on the date of purchase, but can be adjusted to the date in which you take your first class.
  • A valid student ID must be shown at your first visit after purchasing a Semester Pass or Student Monthly Membership. Yogis not enrolled in school are not eligible for Semester Passes or student memberships
  • Monthly memberships, unless cancelled in accordance with the requirements below, will automatically renew on a monthly basis. 
  • Mini and Silver membership classes do not roll over. After taking the designated amount of classes, you will have to either upgrade your membership or pay the drop-in/class pass price for any further classes until your membership auto renews.
  • To downgrade or cancel a monthly membership package, notice must be sent via our Membership Change Request Form at least 7 days prior to your next billing date. Unused classes and guest passes do not carry over to the next monthly billing cycle. Full membership policies are available in the MarianaTek system. You cannot retroactively cancel your membership if your monthly autorenew has gone through already for the month. No credit will be applied.
  • We offer monthly members the option to suspend an active membership for a total of 90 days per year (in 30, 60 or 90 day increments). Please complete the Membership Pause Form to do so.

No credit will be applied. If you pause your membership, it will unpause on the date you provide without notification to you.
  • Prepaid memberships cannot be paused or canceled.
  • Please note that your membership renewal billing date will be adjusted based on the membership pause duration and all policies, including cancellation notification timeline, will be in effect. If you pause and then decide you need to cancel, you will still need to provide 7 days notice from your date of unpause to avoid being charged again.
