1.  I am or will be participating in Virtual or Studio Classes, Workshops or Specialized Training (hereinafter called “Programs”) offered by Butterfly Transformation & Healing, LLC (DBA Hot Yoga RTP/Cary/Morrisville or "Hot Yoga RTP/Cary/Morr") during which I will receive information and instruction about yoga, fitness, health & wellness. These classes include exertion by me, in my self-selected virtual space or in a heated room (about 105 degrees Fahrenheit, about 45% humidity).  I understand and agree that such activity and exertion may be difficult and strenuous and may cause or aggravate a physical injury or medical condition. I am fully aware and accept the risks and hazards involved.  I understand and approve the session recordings and photos which may be taken to support student training, virtual classes, social media or other studio events.  

2.  I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with my physician/health care provider to confirm appropriate medical advice or clearance prior to participating in studio Programs.  I also understand my responsibility to continuously monitor my health and seek guidance from my physician/health care provider should I encounter any discomfort, and to confirm that I am physically able to continue participation. 

3.  I represent that I am physically fit, and I have no medical condition or injury that would prevent my full participation in studio Programs or present a danger to others.  I understand that it is my continuing responsibility to inform the instructor(s) at Hot Yoga RTP/Cary/Morrisville of any previous or new medical conditions, injuries or surgeries prior to taking classes as well as other times as I acquire information.

4.  I agree to comply with the following [Studio Safety, Health, and Etiquette] guidelines, and I understand that any violation of the following commitments will result in termination of my membership with zero refund required.

  • RESERVATIONS REQUIRED FOR CLASS: I understand that self-purchased reservations from studio website are required to attend class.   I understand that for identity safety & data security, all on-site purchase transactions (also called "walk-ins") have been permanently discontinued, and I will self-purchase a reserved space for class using the website.  I understand that the profile I create uniquely belongs to me and cannot be shared with anyone else.  I have only created 1 profile account for myself and I will contact the studio if I have questions or need help (919) 410-7330.  I understand that the studio systems are monitored regularly, and that my membership is at risk if I am found to be using other profiles or sharing my unique profile. 
  • PROFILE ID FOR STUDIO ARRIVAL: When I create my profile, I agree to upload my desired photo to my personal profile or allow a teacher to take a safety photo at the studio entrance for ongoing ID verification when I attend classes.  I understand that this prevents anyone from attempting to use my profile & classes.
  • NOT FEELING WELL? I will not attend studio classes if I don't feel well. I understand that this helps to keep myself and other practitioners safe.  As needed for safety, I consent to a forehead or wrist temperature check at the studio entrance.  I understand that I cannot take class if my temperature exceeds 100 degrees. 
  • LATE ARRIVAL: I understand that the studio doors will unlock just before class time.  I will wait in my car for studio to open just before class start time, and I will follow the current mask and distancing guidelines per local & state mandate.  I understand that if the studio door is locked, then the studio is closed, OR class already started.  I will not continue to pull on the door handle with force.  I will not tap-knock-bang on studio windows, so as to avoid risk of glass breakage or interruption of ongoing class.  I understand that I will be accountable to pay for any damage to studio front door and windows as a result of these actions.
  • REQUIREMENTS FOR CLASS: Upon arrival, I understand that I am required to show teacher my mat and body-sized towel for practice.  I understand that I cannot practice without a yoga mat and a body-sized towel in hot classes with peak humidity (this includes all 26&2 and YYR classes).  In other classes, I understand that towel usage of large towel is at my discretion.
  • PAYMENTS: If I attend class without payment, I understand that a single class will automatically be charged without refund, until otherwise resolved with another package option.  If this happens, I will contact the studio at (919) 410-7330 to confirm other options.
  • PAYMENTS: I understand that if I purchase monthly auto-withdrawal, I am required to email studio at or text message studio at (919) 410-7330 with request to cancel membership.  
  • SWEAT ETIQUETTE: After hot room class, I will clean & dry the hot room space I used (no puddles), dry my body, and cover up, including socks, as needed in common areas, so that I don't create puddles or wet trails (slip hazards) causing safety risk for students and/or massage patrons.  I understand that my membership is at risk without refund if I repeatedly ignore these guidelines and-or if I cause significant safety risks, events or customer complaints.  
  • SWEAT ETIQUETTE: In common areas, if my body-clothing is wet, I will NOT sit directly on benches as a safety & courtesy precaution for other patrons.  I will bring extra towels as needed so that I will not drip on studio furniture or floors in shared areas and walkways.  I will roll my mat after class and store my belongings in designated hallway or locker room areas.  I will not leave my belongings laid out on shared area benches and floors, or blocking doors, pathways, entrance-exits, or seating area for studio members.  I understand that my membership is at risk without refund if I repeatedly ignore these guidelines and-or if I cause significant safety-compliance risks, events or customer complaints.   
  • RENTAL&RETAIL DISCONTINUED: I understand that post-pandemic, the studio no longer provides mats, towels, and props to minimize risk of bacterial, viral, or fungal infection.  Additionally, we do not encourage sharing of yoga mats, towels and props based on safety risk.  As needed, I will bring my own CLEAN mat and props such as yoga blocks, towels, balls and straps. 
  • SPECIALS: I understand and agree to provide accurate and current proof of age, education, military and/or other status to qualify for various studio [Membership Options/Specials].  I understand that ClassPass, Groupon-Living Social and other discounts are not accepted, and I will not attempt to redeem discounted admission when I attend classes.
  • DISTRACTION ETIQUETTE: I understand and will adhere to the requirement that cell phones, keys, and personal belongings are kept outside of the hot room, unless on-call physician or staff.  I understand that there is no recording of classes. I will only bring mat, large towel, and water into the hot room and I understand that the studio is not responsible for my belongings.   
  • ACCOUNT ISSUES: I understand that refunds are not provided for unplanned changes in my personal schedule. If my classes expire, I understand that I can request rollover of expired classes FROM PRIOR MONTH to the next package of equal or greater value.  I understand that expired classes older than prior month will not be rolled over.
  • CULTURE ETIQUETTE: I agree to speak and act with safety, compassion & respect for our studio and its community of practitioners and teachers, so as to sustain an ongoing safe environment free of judgment, bullying, micro-inequity, and/or other language-actions-behaviors deemed inappropriate by Butterfly Transformation & Healing, LLC (DBA Hot Yoga RTP/Cary/Morrisville). 
  • CULTURE ETIQUETTE: I understand that the yoga room is a sacred space.  I will maintain a whisper or low voice in respect for others resting, praying, meditating or practicing around me.
