2.2. Once you have selected a membership package you will need to register with us to become a Member.

All Members, including temporary Members, are required to complete an application form requiring you to provide contact and medical details.
2.4. When you submit your application form and each time you visit the Studio, you warrant and represent to us that you have no medical conditions known to you that would prevent you from engaging in any and all forms of exercise including, but not limited to, yoga-related exercise in a heated room.

2.5. Once we receive your application together with the appropriate payment and, where required, a completed Standing Order Mandate, we will review your application and notify you if successful. Once you become a Member of the Studio you will be entitled to access the yoga classes and other facilities available at the Studio in accordance with your active membership package.
2.6. Please ensure that you familiarise yourself with any restrictions that may apply to your membership package. Introductory offers are subject to restrictions which are displayed on our Website. Certain packages may be designated as “Off Peak” or “Peak” packages which will entitle you to attend yoga classes at certain times and subject to package rules. Full details are displayed on the Website along with a current timetable of classes. If you have purchased an “Off Peak” membership package you will not be able to apply that package to attend classes in designated “Peak” periods.
2.7. Some membership packages are provided in the form of Class Cards (or Count-Series memberships) which entitle the holder of the card to attend a specified number of classes over a set period. Extensions to the Class Cards may be purchased at the prices and subject to the terms stated on the Website and at the Studio. Other membership packages are designated as Time-Series memberships which entitle the holder, subject to the specific package rules, to attend one or more classes per day over a limited period of time.
2.8. Membership packages may also be purchased through specified partners selected by us. Membership entitlements will vary and will be detailed on the particular voucher.
3. Health and Safety
3.1. It is your responsibility to monitor your own physical condition throughout any exercise programme. In the event of any unusual symptoms occurring, you should cease practising and inform a member of staff immediately and also in writing to [email protected] as soon as it is conveniently possible to do so. You should not attend class until you are satisfied that you are in good health and can perform the exercises safely.
3.1a Illness: You do hereby expressly forever release and discharge BYL and it s employees, directors and contractors from any claims related to the contraction of any illness within the premises of BYL, its building or surrounding area. Should you contract any transmissible illness, you will inform BYL in writing as soon as possible and will not return to BYL until your are confirmed as clear of the illness and will isolate as per government guidelines. If you have symptoms of any transmissible illness you will not return until you have been cleared by your physician to do so. In such circumstances, you will not be due any refund for any unused portion of your membership.
3.2. Prior to commencing the yoga classes you should satisfy yourself that this is the appropriate exercise programme for you. We cannot take any responsibility for any injury that you may sustain as a result of participating in a class at the Studio except where such injury has occurred through our proven negligence.
3.3. Yoga classes may be offered to children from time to time from the Studio. Anyone under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when attending the Studio and using the changing facilities. Children attending children’s yoga classes must be brought to and collected from the class by a parent or guardian. No child over the age of 7 may use a changing room reserved for the opposite gender whether or not the child is accompanied by an adult.
3.4. CCTV: Our studio locations may have CCTV installed in order to help protect the property and safety of visitors and staff. Any images and footage are treated as private information, with confidentiality and care.
3.5 There may be instances in which the teacher is unable to attend a class to teach. We will seek to find a replacement (cover) teacher for such classes where feasible. In some instances we may be unable to find a cover at short notice. If you arrive at the studio for a class in which the teacher is absent and decide that you would prefer not to attend, your class will not be charged and you can retain that class credit for future use. Should you prefer to stay and engage in self-practice, either by following taped instructions or by following your own regime or that of another student, you understand and accept that you do so at your own risk.
3.6 LIVE STREAMED CLASSES: During the Covid-19 closures, BYL began offering classes streamed live over the internet. Your wellbeing is very important to us, and when participating in any of our live streamed classes, you understand that you will be performing exercises without the physical presence of a teacher in the room to fully observe you. In addition to following and accepting guidelines for in-studio classes, you accordingly agree to observe the following:
To avoid pushing beyond your existing limits. When you’re practicing yoga or any other exercises outside the hot room, you may find that it takes longer to warm up and that you could be more prone to injury if you attempt to push too hard.
To ensure you have a completely cleared, safe space to practice around you that has no trip hazards or items of furniture. To remove all jewelry when exercising. To avoid practicing if you’re unwell, or pregnant either now or within the past 6 months. To ensure you have booked into our classes through the schedule page on this website. To have a capable person present in your premises to assist you in case of an adverse event/injury. To avoid attending online sessions if you’re in any way unsure as to your ability to practice safely.
3.7 You understand that BYL may, from time to time, record and stream live through transmittable media the classes which you attend for the purposes of making such classes available to viewers online. You acknowledge that where reasonably possible BYL will use reasonable efforts to ensure that your image is not identifiable on such media, however, to the extent that your image is identifiable to viewers of this media, you hereby give your consent to the use of your image for the purposes of making the classes available to online viewers.
4. Purchasing Online

When you place your order online we may send you an email to confirm that we have received it. This email confirmation will be produced automatically so that you have confirmation of your order details.

If the Goods are unavailable or the details of the order are incorrect, we will inform you as soon as practicable.
4.6. All prices and terms listed on the Website are to the best of our knowledge correct at the time of publication; however, we reserve the right to alter these in the future and in the event of an error in the published price or terms will not be held liable and may alter them without notice.

4.8. In the case that you have purchased a membership package for which you are not eligible, we reserve the right to invalidate the package and charge you for the portion used.

5. Online Bookings
BYL is pleased to offer all of our members the ability to book classes online. We operate this programme under the policy stated as follows.
5.1. Booking Windows: Class spots can be reserved online by any member who has an active, valid package covering the period for the classes they wish to reserve. You may book your class starting 14 days ahead and up to 30 minutes prior to the start of a class (“booking window”).
5.1.1. All bookings must be made by the client using the BYL online reservation system. We do not take bookings by email or phone.
5.2. Waitlists: For classes that are fully booked up, you can place yourself on our online ‘waitlist’ beginning 14 days before the class. Once you are on the ‘waitlist’, as available spots come up in the class, then subject to subclause 5.2.1, you will be moved from the ‘waitlist’ to a confirmed spot in class and will automatically be emailed notification of this.
5.2.1. If space becomes available more than 2 hours prior to the class start time, then ‘waitlist’ places are automatically moved into class. If space becomes available less than 2 hours before the class start time, you will not be automatically moved up and will need to call the studio in order to be moved into class. You may be able to book online without adding yourself to the ‘waitlist’ at any time (subject to clause 5.1).
5.3. Cancelling a Booking: If you wish to cancel an online booking, you must do so yourself via the online booking system at least 3 hours before the start of a class (the “cancellation deadline”) or your booking will be treated as either a ‘Late Cancellation’ or a ‘No Show’. Note seminars, workshops and other special events requiring a separate event fee cannot be canceled online or refunded.
5.3.1. We do not accept phone or email cancellations. You must cancel the booking by accessing the BYL website with your login.
5.4. Late Cancellations and No-Shows: If you have booked online you must scan your BYL keytag in at reception at least 15 minutes before the class start time, and you must attend the class you have booked. Failure to do so will be treated as a ‘Late Cancellation’ or a ‘No Show’, in which case your space may be allocated to another person and you will incur a ‘Late Cancellation Fee’ or a ‘No Show Fee’.
5.4.1. Late Cancellation Fee / No Show Fee: This booking policy has been created for all members of the studio to enjoy and utilize, therefore it is important that everyone follows the rules to ensure the system works smoothly and for the benefit of everyone. The ‘late cancellation’ and ‘no show fees’ are non-negotiable and non-refundable and will be automatically charged to the payment card associated with your account. Until the time the fee has been paid, we reserve the right to suspend your booking and/or class attendance privileges.
(a) Your booking will incur a £3 ‘Late Cancellation Fee’ if you cancel your booking “late”, that is, you cancel your booking, but only after the ‘cancellation deadline’ and before the class start time;
(b) Your booking will incur a £5 ‘No Show Fee’ if you do not cancel your booking and do not scan into and attend the class that you have booked. If you have a Class Card the “No Show Fee’ will be effected by our subtracting one class along with the fee. If you have a Time Series package, such as an annual or monthly unlimited membership, you will be charged £10.
(c) If you book a class on a new Time Series package, such as a 1-Month Unlimited or the Introductory Offer, and fail to cancel online at least 3 hours prior to that class if you can’t attend, your package officially activates and time starts elapsing.
5.4.2 In order to maintain an active account with BYL and to book classes, it is required that you maintain a current credit card in our system. Unpaid classes, Late Cancellations, No Show Fees and other negative account balances will be charged to your stored card.
5.5. Attending without Booking: Except during times when social distancing measures are in effect, you are welcome to come to class without a reservation if a spot is available. All BYL members who have been provided a BYL keytag must scan in with it.
6. Prices and Payment
6.1. All prices and terms listed on the Website and in the Studio are correct at the time of publication; however, we reserve the right to alter these in the future without notice. Prices are inclusive of value added tax but exclusive of delivery charges, which will be added to your purchase where applicable.
6.2. The total price for Goods or membership ordered, including delivery charges, will be displayed on the Website when you place your order. If purchasing Goods full payment must be made before Goods are despatched.
6.3. You must pay for your Goods order before it is delivered and you can do so by debit or credit card. To ensure that shopping online is secure, your debit/credit card details will be encrypted to prevent the possibility of someone being able to read them as they are sent over the Internet. Your credit card company may also do security checks to confirm it is you making the purchase.
6.4. Time Series memberships and Class Cards must be paid for in advance at the time of membership application. Payment for all online purchases may be made by credit or debit card. Payment may also be made in advance by bank transfer for purchases made in the Studio.
6.5. Memberships may be paid for on a monthly subscription basis via standing order. A Standing Order Mandate form provided by Bikram Yoga London Ltd. must be completed by you at the time of submitting your application form. There is a minimum 12-month or 6-month commitment term for the monthly subscription (for early termination please see section 8). A credit or debit card will be required to guarantee the standing order and this shall be debited in the event of late payment of the standing order. A processing fee of £20 will be charged for each such transaction required. In the first month of membership, a sum equivalent to 2 months’ membership fees shall be charged, which includes a 1-month deposit. The deposit will be applied as payment for the final month of membership and is not refundable.
6.6. Failure to pay membership dues on time will result in the credit or debit card you have provided on your Standing Order Mandate being charged without prior notice for the full outstanding amount that is in arrears, and/or the cancellation of your membership as well as late payment charges equivalent to interest on the late payment which shall be calculated on a daily basis at a rate of 5% over our bank’s lending rate from the date the payment was originally due until the date of actual payment. We may also instruct a debt collection agency or solicitor to collect payment (including any interest and/or late payment charges) on our behalf. In such circumstances, you will be liable to pay an additional sum to us, which will not exceed the reasonable costs that we may incur to pay the debt collection agency or solicitor, who will add the sum to your outstanding debt on our behalf. An administration charge of £20 will be charged for each late payment reminder that we are required to send to you.
6.7. We will notify you of any increase in your membership rates when such increase becomes applicable, which is typically at the end of each 12 month anniversary of your membership. You will usually be given 30 days’ notice of any increase and the increased amount will be payable in the following month.
7.1. Delivery periods quoted at the time of ordering are approximate only and may vary. Goods will be delivered to the address nominated by you at the time of ordering.
7.2. Time is not of the essence for the delivery of any Goods or services supplied under this Agreement.
7.3. All orders are delivered by a reputable courier. We will make every effort to deliver within the time stated however we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late ordering. If the Goods are not delivered within the estimated delivery time which we quote, please contact us by telephone or email and we will try to ensure that you receive your order as quickly as possible.
7.4. No refunds of the delivery charge are made for late deliveries.
7.5. Incomplete orders must be notified to us as soon as possible following delivery and within 3 days of delivery. We will either arrange for the missing items to be delivered to you at no extra cost or refund you the original cost of the missing items.
7.6. All risk in the Goods shall pass to you upon delivery.
7.7. If you fail to accept delivery of the Goods at the time they are ready for delivery, or we are unable to deliver the Goods at the nominated time due to your failure to provide appropriate instructions, documentation, licences, consents or authorisations, then the Goods shall be deemed to have been delivered to you and all risk and responsibility in relation to such Goods shall pass to you. Any storage, insurance and other costs which we incur as a result of the inability to deliver the Goods shall be your responsibility and you shall indemnify us in full for such cost.
7.8. You must ensure that at the time of delivery of the Goods adequate arrangements, including labour and access where necessary, are in place for the safe delivery of the Goods. We cannot be held liable for any damage, cost or expense incurred to the Goods or premises where this arises as a result of a failure to provide adequate access or arrangements for delivery.
7.9. Where delivery is outside the U.K., you may be liable to pay additional tax or duty once the Goods reach your country. This may vary from country to country. Please contact your local customs office for more information.
7.10. Please note that Goods may be subject to inspection by your local customs office where delivery is outside the U.K.
8. Membership Cancellation or Termination
8.1. Memberships purchased online or via telephone: – you may cancel your membership package purchased online or over the telephone by notifying us in writing within 14 calendar days of confirmation of your order provided that you have not used any part of your membership. A full refund will be made within 30 days of receipt of notification.
8.2. Memberships purchased at the Studio: – if you change your mind you may cancel your membership package by notifying us in writing within 14 calendar days of submitting your membership application provided that you have not used any part of your membership. A full refund will be made within 30 days of receipt of notification.
8.3. Memberships paid by standing order: – following expiry of the time limits mentioned in 8.1 and 8.2 above, you may terminate your membership any time after 12 months from the start of your membership (or 6 months, if you have a 6-month membership) by giving us 30 days’ notice in writing following the end of your current month of membership. Only active, paid membership months are considered and applicable for the 12-month (or 6-month) minimum term, not periods where the membership was either free or frozen. Standing Order Memberships are rolling memberships that continue perpetually unless canceled within the above notice period. Once a termination has been agreed and confirmed with the studio it is your responsibility to cancel the standing order you have in place with your bank and, if you fail to do so, a refund will not be made automatically. For any such refund, if agreed, a £20 administrative fee is applicable.
8.4. Termination by you in other circumstances: – You can terminate your standing order membership at any time if we seriously break these Terms and Conditions and do not resolve the breach in a reasonable manner and time frame; or may under certain circumstances be able to terminate with 30 days’ notice period following the end of the current month of your standing order membership if your circumstances change to such an extent that it is not possible for you to continue to participate in yoga classes (for example, you acquire a critical long-term injury or illness that prevents you from exercising, move to a different workplace and/or house resulting in both your workplace and house being outside a 5-mile radius from any of our locations, become pregnant, or are made redundant). Should any of these conditions apply to you note that the agreement cannot be terminated prior to the completion of the first 6 months of your membership (‘absolute minimum term’). We will need to see documents as proof of a change in your circumstances. Please contact us in any such case to discuss your membership options. Rather than terminate, we may at our sole discretion choose to freeze your membership.
Where we agree to early termination of your standing order membership we shall be entitled to withhold the deposit you will have paid with your application, or in the case of payment upfront, we may at our sole discretion give a pro rata account credit (not a cash refund) of the amount paid adjusted for usage and termination notice, less an amount equal to one month’s unlimited membership. Should such ‘early termination’ of your standing order membership be accepted by us, the termination shall be deemed effective as of a 30-day notice period following the end of your current month of membership (taking into account the absolute minimum term); and, in case of payment upfront, a pro-rata credit, if any, shall be calculated on that basis. Barring the fulfillment of the absolute minimum term, the amount withheld shall be capped at two months’ worth of your membership, including forfeiting your initial deposit. An early termination administrative fee of £20 applies. Note that, once a termination has been agreed, it is your responsibility to cancel the standing order you have in place with your bank and that, if you fail to do so, your membership will remain active and a refund will not be made automatically. If a refund resulting from failure to terminate a standing order with your bank has been agreed a £20 administrative fee is applicable.
8.5. Membership Transfers: – Your membership is not transferable to anyone else. Allowing anyone else to use your card or membership number represents a serious breach of these Terms & Conditions. Cards or packages being used by any other person other than the authorised member will result in that membership being cancelled and no refund of the membership or current class package fee will be paid. In some exceptional cases, we may consider membership transfer. Any request for membership transfer should be notified to us in writing and any decision will be made by us at our sole discretion.
8.6. Money on Account after Termination: – We allow customers to put cash balances as credit on their accounts to purchase goods or services at the studio at a later point in time, commonly called “money on account.” These funds are only refundable within 30 days of crediting the client account and in cases where none of the credits have been utilised, and in any event are not refundable after this period has passed. A £2 transaction fee will be charged on all refunds.
8.7. “Freezing” memberships: – Only annual upfront and standing order membership packages may be frozen. You may request a freezing of your annual or standing order membership, up to one time, for a minimum of one month and up to a maximum of three consecutive months, in one month increments, within any and each 12-month period, by providing us with a written request at least 14 calendar days prior to the date you want the freeze to be effective. A request to freeze your annual membership may only be made once in any 12-month period. You will be required to pay an administrative fee of £20 per month for the month(s) during which your annual membership is frozen. Annual upfront membership packages will be extended by the period that they were frozen. In case of standing order memberships, you are required to continue – not cancel, freeze or modify – your existing standing order and will receive a refund for the period you were absent net of the applicable administration fee via bank transfer upon your return. Freezing packages in any other exceptional circumstances or for longer periods are at BYL’s sole discretion. Your minimum term of 12 months (or 6 months if a 6-month membership applies) refers to active membership months, i.e. any periods your membership is frozen do not count towards the 12-month or 6-month minimum term, respectively.
8.8. Termination by us: – We reserve the right to terminate your membership at any time if we have reasonable grounds to believe any of the following:
8.8.1. you have acted in breach of these Terms and Conditions (which shall include non-payment of membership fees) and/or the Studio Etiquette;
8.8.2. your behaviour within the Studio is unreasonable, abusive or offensive to other members;
8.8.3. your actions within the Studio put you, other members or staff, or any property at risk; or
8.8.4. we have reason to believe you have engaged in or are attempting to engage in any illegal activity.
8.9. In all cases of termination by us you will not be entitled to a refund of any membership you may have paid in advance and, in cases of annual or standing order membership, you will also be liable to pay the balance of any membership fees where termination takes place part way through the first 12 months of membership or any other agreed minimum period according to your membership agreement.
