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 physical exertion by me, in my self-selected virtual space or in a heated room (about 105 degrees Fahrenheit, 40% humidity).  I understand and agree that such physical activity and exertion may be difficult and strenuous and may cause or aggravate a physical injury or medical condition. I am fully aware of 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] behaviors:

  • I understand that self-purchased reservations from studio website are required to attend class.   I understand that for safety & data security, all purchase transactions and therefore "walk-in" visits have been permanently discontinued.
  • When I create my profile, when possible, I agree to upload my desired photo to my personal profile or take a safety photo at the studio entrance for ongoing ID verification when I attend classes.  I understand that this can prevent anyone from attempting to use my profile & classes.
  • I will not attend studio classes if I don't feel well. 
  • I understand that if the studio door is locked, then the studio is closed OR I have arrived beyond the late window for admission to class.  I will not continue to pull on the door handle with force OR tap-knock on studio windows to avoid breakage or interruption of ongoing class.  I understand that I will be accountable to pay for any damage to front door or studio windows as a result of my actions.
  • 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 front desk staff is present to greet and verify reservation-temperature-mat-towel.  I understand that staff does not conduct purchase transactions, and that if I attend class without payment, a single class will automatically be charged without refund unless otherwise resolved with another package option.
  • I consent to a forehead or wrist temperature check at the studio entrance and confirm my mat-towel.  I understand that I cannot take class if my temperature exceeds 100 degrees. 
  • I understand that I cannot practice without a yoga mat and body-sized towel in hot classes with peak humidity (this includes all 26&2 and YYR classes).  In other classes, towel usage on my mat is at my discretion. 
  • After class, I will clean & dry the hot room space I used (no puddles), dry my body, and cover my feet in common areas so that I don't create wet trails (slip hazards) in consideration of other patrons, including our massage business patrons.  If my body-clothing is wet, I will place towels before I sit directly on lounge benches or drip on the floor as a safety & courtesy precaution for other patrons and patron complaints.  I will bring extra towels as needed to dry my space after I take class.  I understand that I will not be able to practice in future classes if I leave puddles on the floor creating slip danger for classmates and increasing risk of safety complaints.
  • I will alcohol spray my hands & feet at studio entrance as needed and maintain safety distancing at all times by following the floor markers.  I agree to wear a face covering and adhere to MAXIMUM CAPACITY in the locker rooms as instructed per local and state guidelines for yoga & massage studios.  Until further notice (pandemic safety), I agree to adhere to mouth-closed breathing.
  • 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.
  • I understand and will adhere to the requirement that cell phones (unless on-call physician or staff), keys and personal belongings are kept outside of the hot room and that there is no recording of classes.  I will only bring mat, large towel covering mat and water into the hot room.  
  • I understand that refunds are not provided for unplanned changes in my personal schedule.  I understand that my expired classes can be rolled over to the next package of equal or greater value, and I understand that my membership cannot be shared with other patrons.
  • I agree to speak and act with safety, compassion & respect for our studio and its community of practitioners, 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). 
  • I understand that any violation of the above commitments will result in dismissal from the studio including termination of my membership and forfeiture of any tuition/fees paid.  No refund shall be due or required.
