Frequently Asked Questions
Students may come to classes on a drop-in basis any time and pay the regular drop in fee at time of arrival. If you are currently registered for the session and wish to attend an additional class during the week, you may drop-in at the lower pro-rated registration class fee instead. Attendance to a class outside of a package is subject to drop in rate at either a regular charge or student discounted rate. Refunds for Drop In classes are not refundable. Please see our refund policy.
We offer many options to suit your life with practice. 5, 10, 12 & 25 class packages are good for 90 days and great for those who have outside commitments that change. Monthly, 6 month, and annual memberships are by far the best choice for those who practice often and know they would if it were totally available all the time. They are also the most cost effective. Payment options are available for that when on file to help; please inquire. We offer economic hardship options and student monthly opportunities for those of you in school or students of our local public schools.
Our schedule is live, fully interactive, and there for you. If you plan to attend class and students are signed in you will be charged for class and can view all of that right there on your own account. We want to make it a breeeeeze for you to see what is going on, when you attended class, and how often. Our new healcode widget online and Facebook makes it even easier!
If you know you will miss several classes during any given session and will not be able to make up a class (such as a Chakra class package, Young Yogis, or other series of yoga classes we offer), you can register for a reduced number of classes. Semi – private classes open often or what we call a “series.” These classes are pre-registered. We will do all that we can to work with our students and their lives. After all, it is Yoga 4 Life!
We are closed according to Loudoun County Public Schools cancellation. If we are cancelled due to
bad weather or an emergency situation (such as bad summer storms and outages) there may be a message on the front page of our Schedule & Registration page, Facebook and please check the online schedule before class. If classes are cancelled because of weather, they can be made up if they are in a series or applied to another class session always. Many times our teachers make their own call about the roads after LCPS has made their early morning delays. A lot of times we are still open.
Make-Ups and Refund Policy:
Our 5, 10, 12, and 25 class packages are good for three whole months. Extensions are made because of medical issues, injury, family crisis, those needing a break during recovery, or other. They are made case by case and by Yoga 4 Life. We will not and do not require medical notice. Extensions must be requested at the time and will not be granted after expiration. We want everyone healthy and well to continue to practice yoga!
Gift Certificates DO NOT expire…we don’t believe in such things. Any packages that are purchased begin on the day of purchase and their length depends upon the month or year long time frame. Yoga on the Wine Trail and Workshop reservations and prepayments are only refunded 4 days prior to event. We understand “life” comes up and things happen but we commit to our local vineyards, farms, and business owners that team with us for these events for food and space. We will try to work with you and is a case by case basis as our commitments to others may be flexible. We thank you for your understanding to keep our yoga community and studio alive and thriving. Please contact us directly by e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with direct billing concerns or questions. We are always available to help you.
Coming to Class Late:
If you are running late, don’t stress! Come anyway – ALWAYS. Please be mindful that most classes begin with quiet time and centering, meditation, breathing, and energy practices. Therefore, please be courteous to your fellow yogis and come in quietly, simply sit down, and wait until the teacher finishes the opening meditation before you gather props and unroll your mat. Another considerate option is to wait until centering is finished before entering the room. Please stay after class to complete your registration for class if you are a drop-in or have not signed in. We practice and continue to operate on the honor system and would like to keep it that way when there is not an additional instructor at the front desk. You will be charged a standard drop in fee for class. Please let us help you apply that to a package when you have more time.
For Your Health and Comfort
Let the teacher know if you have any acute injuries or chronic health matters that need to be taken into account when you practice yoga. Classes that have peak poses or specific opening sequences will be announced prior to practice and are often times listed on our website calendar. Our teachers are trained and knowledgeable and can make useful therapeutic suggestions or specially tailored modifications to your condition.
If you use of of our studio mats for your practice, in order to ensure that your mat is clean, you may wipe it down prior to class with the supplies provided in the studio. We ask everyone to clean studio mats following their practice but you can never be certain this has been completed. Please take the extra step for everyone’s best heath interest!! Can’t ever be too cautious!!
Stay hydrated to stay healthy – your body will be most grateful and thank you! We have water bottles for purchase if you need water. Please remember to bring your water with you as we are on town water! We hope to provide a watering station soon for all to enjoy!
Try not to eat a big meal just before class, as yoga is best practiced on an empty stomach. If you must eat, especially for health reasons, eat something light like fruit, a small amount of protein, or fluids.
Honoring the Space
Please remove your shoes and leave them in the spaces provided. Our no shoe policy is so important where we live out here in Western Loudoun County. Not only do we drag in bacteria, dirt, and grime from the outdoors but many of us come from farms or agriculture based properties where we can track in far more than that – you get the idea!
When returning props to the shelves, it’s nice for everyone if we do so neatly and mindfully: roll mats carefully and one at a time, fold blankets so they stack up uniformly, roll up or hang straps, and replace blocks to their homes while not in use.
We love and encourage the sense of community and the personal and social bonds that form at our studio! We also want to balance that with maintaining a secure, safe, and peaceful place for all – therefore, if you are early for class and have some catching up to do with fellow yogis, keep voices low and respectful of others who choose to use the time for quiet centering. Please be mindful that many come to class to get away from the outside world and need that transition time to do so. Please feel free to chat at the front of the studio all you want, we encourage community and sharing!
Please, please, please silence your cell phone before class. Even phones left in another room can be heard during our meditations and final resting asanas. We all forget, don’t beat yourself up over it when it happens!!
We are often asked why style of yoga we practice and teach at Yoga 4 Life. The quick answer is that we are a hatha yoga studio; the detailed answer can be found under class descriptions on the drop down menu. The style names you hear all fall under the larger umbrella of “hatha” and our teaching staff is well-rounded, a collection of many practitioners with an eclectic blend of so many styles. When a class is purely devoted to one particular style or concentration (such as Prana, Vinyasa Flow, or Ashtanga or Chakra, Element based), it will be indicated as such on the calendar with an icon or description name. Many of our teachers have experience with several styles or are trained in specific concentrations. Our instructors bio are available on our website to answer any questions as well.
All instructors are certified and keep up training to explore new ways that heal and help better on the path of service. With the new widget schedule online and Facebook you can research both the instructor and class best suited to your needs and wants. It is a wonderful new option for us and you.
