Rules of Sarva Iyengar Yoga Institute

Class Fees

We would like all our students to enjoy their yoga and to have fair and equal treatment. To ensure that you are able to attend the classes you wish, we have developed the following rules:

  1. All students attending weekly or regular monthly classes must be members of Sarva IYI.
  2. This membership is paid annually and entitles students to:
  3. All students’ memberships are due for renewal in September. Those joining part way through the year will pay a pro-rata sum for the remaining months to September.
  4. Students may attend two classes to ‘try out’ the sessions (at the drop in rate) before membership is due.
  5. Visitors are welcome to attend classes at Sarva IYI. They will be charged a ‘drop-in’ fee. This will be higher than the price paid by members.
  6. Course fees are discounted when paid termly in advance, unless otherwise specified in Sarva IYI leaflets, or you must pay 'drop-in' fees. Our classes are popular and space is limited so always book to secure your place.
  7. If you miss your regular class during your course, you may make up the missed class by attending any other class on the regular timetable (provided it is within the same course term). You must let us know when you intend to make up a class in this way.
  8. Membership and Course fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
  9. During the last two weeks of a course, students will have the opportunity to secure their place on the next course before it is open to everyone.
  10. In the unlikely event of the advertised teacher being unable to take a class, Sarva IYI reserves the right to substitute another suitably qualified teacher.
  11. For weekend events, refunds can be made only if the course or yoga event is cancelled by Sarva IYI, or you tell us at least a week in advance and your place can be re-let to another student. An administrative fee will be deducted.
