How to book

You can pay and register for classes online or in person, at the studio, before a class. Card payments can be taken at the studio.
To book online, choose a class from the timetable and follow the instructions after ‘sign up & pay’. Or you can register for the whole term when you book from the link on the class info page.

Can I book for just one class?

Yes, you can! Choose the class you would like to attend on the timetable, click on “sign up & pay’ and choose the number of credits you need (usually the top, cheapest option will be for a single class).

Do I need to book?

No. You can just turn up to the class of your choice and if there is space, you can pay then. The studio is very large, so there is usually room for people dropping in. However, if you ‘sign up & pay’ online, your place is booked for you and you will get a confirmation email with directions to the studio etc.

I am new to yoga, what do you suggest?

We run Beginners Courses periodically, usually in the Autumn and Winter. These are 6 – 12 week courses that are ideal for the complete beginner. It is best to attend each week – missed classes cannot be refunded.

If there is no Beginners Course available, or the times do not suit you, a Beginners class is the best place to start. You can use the Introductory pass (for 6 classes) for these classes, as well as for the Courses. These are very good value for new students.

Do I need to bring my own mat?

No. We provide all equipment, including mats. If you prefer to use your own mat, you are welcome to bring it (please make sure that it is non-slip and does not slide around on the floor).

What should I wear?

Stretchy and comfortable clothing and bare feet. Shorts or leggings and a t-shirt. It can be useful to have layers with you – a jumper and socks for relaxation. Men should wear underwear with their shorts please.
Really baggy clothing should be avoided.

How do the credits work?

Credits are how the booking system works – you need to have enough credits in your account to register for classes. Think of it as a currency – the more credits you buy at a time, the better the exchange rate!
Shorter, 60 minute classes, cost 2.5 credits. Longer classes cost 3 or more credits.
Credits can be spent however you like – once you have credits, you can book into any classes you choose, until the credits are used up. Please check the class descriptions before booking, to check the class is suitable for you.

Do I need to sign up to your website?

Yes, you do now. Changes to UK online banking laws mean that you need to create an account on the Yoga Now website to pay online for your classes and events.

When you create an account and sign in, your payment is processed automatically and immediately so you can register for the class or workshop and reserve your place. Please remember that Workshop bookings are not refundable.

Once you sign in to your account, you can see how many credits you have left, how many are ‘on reserve’ for classes, when they expire etc. You can also change your class reservations with just one click.

What do all the passes mean?

Yoga works best when practiced regularly, so we reward commitment and make credits cheaper if you buy more at once.
The cheapest way to attend classes is to buy the Monthly Unlimited pass. A regular monthly payment from your card of £65 (current Special offer rate) allows you to come to as many classes as you like.

If you come to the same class every week, you can buy a term pass at the start of the term. This expires at the end of term and unused credits cannot be carried over. These classes cost as little as £8 each.
If you come often but not every week, the 10 class pass is more flexible and lasts 120 days (approx. 4 months).

What is the cheapest way to pay for classes?

The  Unlimited class pass for just £65 per month. If you attend 3 classes per week (12 per month) they cost just £5.42 each.

What if I just want to come once a week?

The term pass is our most popular pass. Available for a few weeks at the start of a new term, you buy one class per week for the duration of the term. The terms vary in length (they relate to Edinburgh school term dates). These are very good value.
You do not have to use this pass at the same class each week. You are free to use your credits at any classes you choose. You can register and deregister on the timetable to change your booking – so you can make up missed classes or just vary your attendance.

If I buy a term pass, do I need to register for every class of the term?

Yes. You are in control of your registration for classes, so you can change your class choice if your plans change. However, if you want to book for the whole term, just let us know at the studio and we can do it very easily for you. This is a good idea as it reserves your place each week and shows the teacher your intention to be there. You can still change your registrations in your account as needed.

I’m not sure I can come every week. Can I still get cheaper classes?

Yes. You can buy a 10 class pass. These last for 3 months, so you have plenty of time to use them. You can then attend any appropriate classes you choose. There are 2 types of 10 class passes –
30 credits (for 10 x 3 credit classes) and 40 credits (for 10 x 4 credit classes).
Of course, once you have bought your pass, you can spend your credits on whichever classes you like!

I have credits. How do I book a place in a class?

Open the timetable, click on the class you want to book for and if you have enough credits, you can register for the class. You are then on the class list for that individual class and a place is held for you.

I need to change my booking…

If you cannot attend a class you have registered for, you need to cancel the registration before the class starts, or you will loose the credits. You can ‘deregister’ on the website, on your account page.

How do I book for a Workshop?

All the details about our workshops and Special Events are on our Events page.
Booking is done via the Timetable page, like for classes. Scroll forward to the relevant date and click on “sign up and pay”. Usually, events running over more than one day will only appear once on the timetable and booking for that day will include the whole event.

Can I get a refund for a workshop?

Refunds are not available for workshops unless a replacement can be found to use your place.

I have another question

No problem. You can email iyoganowstudio@gmail.com with your query or ask us in person at the studio. Please note that we have no receptionist, so the teacher is available to help for 15 minutes before the start of the class.
