Terms & Conditions
PAYMENTS & BOOKINGS
All payment is required in advance. You can make the payment via M-Pesa, cheque or cash.
Rates: In accordance to current inflation rates, we reserve the right to increase our fees annually. Client’s will be notified of any increase one month in advance of such increase.
Private Sessions: Private bookings are arranged via email with the Studio Manager or Instructor directly and sessions booked at a suitable time for both parties.
Group Class bookings: All group classes need to be made online via our website or through whatsapp on our studio line, and payment made upfront. Tracking of group class package expiry and sessions remaining is the responsibility of the client. Expiry dates will not be extended unless medical reasons restrict you from continuing your practice, in which case appropriate documentation is required.
MISSED APPOINTMENTS / CLIENT ABSENCES
Early cancellation: A strict 18 working hour cancellation policy applies in order to cancel or reschedule your session without charge. After that we charge in full. If it is the day before your session but not yet in the 18 hour working period, you may cancel only by sending us a message to our studio line
Late cancellation: Late cancellations will be charged in full due to the demand for regular times and limited studio space and equipment.
Planned absence: Please provide a two week notice period for any planned absence so that alternative arrangements can be made to fill your session time slot. A 30% retainer will be required for periods of absence longer than 1 month if you wish to secure your time slot for your return.
Client Illness: Please use your discretion and consideration when feeling unwell. Rather plan ahead to rest and reschedule your session in advance. This avoids late cancellation charges and the potential of infecting others. Body Equilibrium instructor’s reserve the rights to refuse teaching clients who arrive ill.
Hygiene and attire: Please wear appropriate and comfortable workout clothing that allows you to move freely. Please be respectful of your instructor and those around you and ensure your clothing covers sensitive areas adequately to avoid indecent exposure during your movement practice. Please make sure not to wear any zips or other accessories (hair clips and jewelry) that could potentially scratch the upholstery of the equipment.
Hygiene: We kindly request you to be mindful of your personal hygiene, particularly clean feet before the start of your session.
Arriving: Please be patient if there is a session going on. There is a waiting area as well as the balcony area in case you arrive early. Please refrain from loud conversations / any behaviours which may disrupt ongoing sessions.
Run time: Sessions run for 55 mins and will not be extended if you arrive late. Should you not arrive within 15 mins of your appointment start time, the session will be considered a late cancel, charged as such and the instructor will be free to leave.
Body Equilibrium reserves the right to film and/ or photograph any clients training at Body Equilibrium. We ensure content used will always be sensitive and respectful to the clients and always uphold the high standard we set at Body Equilibrium. If you are not comfortable with any photographs / film being taken, please let us know and we will make a note of this on your form.
