Terms of Use

Yoga Passes
Note: All yoga passes have expiry dates. They are 110 days for 10 weeks, 90 days for 5 weeks and 30 days for 1 pass. You can view your date of expiry at any time when you log on! Be aware that the system will let you book classes past your expiry date. It's something I hope to see changed, but in the interim, it is your responsibility to check the dates you are booking still fall within your pass dates. There are no refunds for yoga passes or workshops. 


When you purchase any yoga class or activity from the Fat Yoga website you are agreeing to the following terms:

If at any time during the class, you feel discomfort or strain, gently come out of the posture. You may rest at any time during the class. It is important in yoga that you listen to your body, and respect its limits on any given day. I understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress re-education and relief of muscular tension. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, discontinue the activity, and ask for support from the instructor. I will continue to breathe smoothly. I assume full responsibility for any and all damages, which may incur through participation. I understand that Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions.

By purchasing a a class I affirm that a licensed physician has verified my good health and physical condition to participate in such a fitness program, if required. In addition, I will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations before class. If I am pregnant, become pregnant or I am post-natal or post-surgical, my purchase verifies that I have my physician’s approval to participate. I also affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga and participation is at my own risk. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or may have hereafter against Fat Yoga and all related facilities and premises for any personal injury or negligence. Additionally, the facility, instructor and Fat Yoga are not in any way responsible for any loss or damage of your personal property.

Those under 18 years of age must have this form signed by a parent or guardian. If any portion of this release from liability shall be deemed by a Court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then the remainder of this release from liability shall remain in full force and effect and the offending provision or provisions severed here from. I have carefully read and fully understand and agree to the above terms of this Liability Waiver Agreement. I am agree voluntarily and recognize that my purchase serves as complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law and that it cannot be changed orally.

Retreats, Workshops and Special Events
Retreat deposits are non-refundable. Detail on individual retreats booking and cancellation policies may differ. 

Retreats are non-refundable 8 weeks prior to the retreat but each retreat may have individual terms, in which case that would supersede this general policy. Retreat places are transferable if the recipient identifies as fat. Please let Sarah know. If you are not on the Pay-Pay payment plans then the policy is to pay in 2 installments, neither of which are refundable. You should find more specific detail on your retreat info, if not then this is the default policy. 

Workshops, Special Events or Short Courses are non-refundable but are transferable. You may gift your place to someone else (please let us know!)
