Policies.

Reservations & Waitlist

  • You may reserve online up to a week in advance. In order to reserve online, a positive account balance is required (note, classes can be purchased online). If you try to sign up for a class and are put on the waitlist, you will be notified via email if you are added to the class.
  • As soon as a spot opens up in class, the first person on the waitlist will be automatically bumped into class and an email and text notification will be sent out. If you are bumped into class within 1 hour of class, in addition to receiving an email notification, we will also attempt to call you. Please confirm via email or by calling us (949.725.8825) to let us know whether or not you will be able to attend; if you are unsure if you are off the waitlist, please give us a call.
  • Reminder: Being bumped off the waitlist into class means you are IN CLASS and therefore responsible for confirming of cancelling your spot. If you get into class from the waitlist, do not show up for class, and have not canceled your reservation within our cancellation policy timelines, your spot may be given away and you will be charged for class. If you get into class from the waitlist and are already scheduled for another class, you will need to cancel your reservation for your other class online or by calling us. if you do not cancel, you will be charged for class.
