ATTENDANCE
We understand that work & personal life is different for everyone and can be challenging to fully commit. Each student must attend at least 70% of each course (either 5/7, either 6/8, either 7/9 classes). Regular attendance will ensure a positive group dymamic as well as providing the student with increased opportunities to partake in pair- and group activities. It is beneficial for a student to commit to attending the majority of the lessons in a course to ensure his/her personal growth. Each succeeding lesson will build on the skills and activities of the previous lesson. If a student is absent or late in more than 2 group classes per course without a valid notice, then unfortunately he/she/they will not be eligible to continue the course, as this can significally affect the balance and the dynamics of the group.
REFUNDS/CREDITS FOR CLASSES MISSED
We sell packages of 5-6-7-8 classes only, so you can either pay 1 trial or the full course/package. However, we sometimes do exceptions (only depending on availability) and can give you a discount on the full course if you know in advance that you will miss some classes! 🙂

Furthermore, if you booked and completed 3 or more classes, apart from the loyalty discount we will soon give you a special gift 🙂
