Closed Water bottles are the only drinks allowed in the studio, and must be kept in the cubbies during class. Drinks with ice are not advised for yoga, room temperature is best.
Fragrances of any kind are not worn to class as some people are sensitive.

The boutique carries high quality mats, bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps, as well as mat bags to carry it all in. We have demo mats for rent for first time visitors ($1.00 minimum donation to the animal shelter.) This way you can try our premium mats before you buy. When you purchase your mat from the studio, you help support the studio and you will know you have a great mat.
On Being late: 30 minutes are scheduled between each class, to allow for a smooth transition.The doors are closed once a class begins.
On Leaving early: All of of our classes are 60 minutes. Schedule your time so that you can stay until the end of class.
After class: Please pick up your mat and equipment promptly after class.
Voices: Once you have entered the studio for a class, please keep voices low when talking.
Injuries & Limitations: Please let your teacher know prior to the start of class. We appreciate you keeping us updated on your condition.
Refund and Cancellation Policy Over the years we have seen studios come and go in our area. What has sustained Movement Arts since 1998 is the consistent support of our members. When you sign up for a class, or opt for monthly payment, the money that comes in helps to support the studio being here for you. Once you have paid, please do not ask us for a refund. No exceptions please.
Deposits on Retreats & Teacher Training: All deposits are non-refundable.
Merchandise returns are issued as studio credit, which may be used for classes or other merchandise.
How We Stay in Touch with You. Please make sure we have your correct email address and that you are receiving the monthly newsletter. You will be informed if there are schedule changes or other updates, new classes or workshops, and other events. We do not sell or share our email lists with anyone else.
Holidays and Studio Closures: We are open for all “bank holidays” and closed for all major holidays. One or two weeks out of any given year we may be closed for studio improvements, continuing education, etc. for which you will be notified in advance.
Weather Closures: When the Stanwood Camano school district is closed due to weather conditions, we are closed. When the schools are running late due to weather, the 7:30 am Yoga Basics is cancelled. Otherwise we stay on our normal schedule for classes. Whenever possible, closures will be posted on the website and notifications will be sent out.
Bringing Guests to the Studio: Members may bring guests to class. If the guest is local and interested in classes, we are happy to provide their first class free upon request. If the person is from out of town, we ask that they pay the regular drop in fee.
