  4. Members and unlimited pass holders will have their booking privileges suspended if they do not attend or fail to cancel twice in a two week period. Members will not be able to book a class on the same day.
  5. If you book online you must sign in at reception at least 10 minutes before the class start time. Failure to do this may be treated as a ‘no show’ and your space may be given to someone else.

5. Membership Plans- Policies

  1. The first month’s membership dues are required up front with a valid credit or debit card only and will not be refunded under any circumstances. A credit card must be left on file upon initial membership purchase for the automatic payment plan. The Membership fee will be automatically deducted from the credit card on file each month from the date of purchase.
  2. Members may freeze their membership for one (1) month out of every year. In such case the one month will not count toward the Membership period but a Member will not be able to attend classes during that month without payment. This option will only be given when requested with 15 days prior notice by e-mail directed to info@kymiami.com.
  3. Based upon the Membership option selected, Members may be required to sign up for a minimum period (the “Minimum Period”). After the Minimum Period expires, the membership will continue to automatically renew on a month to month basis until the Member informs KYM of the desire to cancel the membership. Member understands that this Agreement does not include any workshops, teacher training, retreats, products, coaching, or wellness services.
  4. If Member terminates this Agreement for any reason before the end of the Minimum Period with respect to either of the Annual Memberships, the Member will pay a penalty fee equal to month’s of the Membership fee. This fee will be drawn from credit/debit card used at the time of sign up. Member understands that failure on its part to regularly attend yoga classes does not relieve it of the monthly obligation to pay the membership obligation in full.
  5. In order to terminate this Agreement after the Minimum Period a Member must notify KYM at least 30 days prior to the next automatic charge against its credit card in writing or via email to KYM at info@kymiami.com (please put “Yoga Membership” as subject heading of email). KYM does not accept phone, verbal, or voice mail cancellations. In turn, KYM will send a confirmation via email after the changes have been made to your membership. Member may cancel its membership at any time after the expiration of the Minimum Period without penalty.
  6. Once a Member has submitted an e-mail request for any changes to a membership, it is the Member’s responsibility to ensure that KYM has responded back on the same e-mail account to confirm processing the request. KYM is not responsible for Member’s negligence in checking their own credit card statements to ensure that membership changes, holds, or cancellations have been processed correctly.
  7. In the event of miscommunication, Member is responsible to produce a copy of their request and response from KYM for review. Only then, if KYM did not perform what it agreed to do, KYM will reimburse any funds rightfully owed to Member. In the event that Member cannot produce a copy of e-mail correspondence with KYM, then KYM is not obligated to, nor will refund under any circumstances, dues charged against Member’s credit card.
  8. Member agrees to purchase the membership for the amount of the Membership Fee as an automatic charge to its credit card, or automatic debit to its checking account, for each month for the Minimum Period. Member agrees to allow KYM to charge its credit card for the amount of the Membership Fee in accordance with this Agreement.
  9. Member hereby certifies that it is the holder of the credit card described above. Member understands that it will be notified if its credit card fails to authorize for any reason, and that Member will be required to pay KYM for any amounts of the Membership Fee which were unpaid due to the failure of its credit card to authorize for any reason.
  10. KYM and Member agree that any dispute or controversy relating to this Agreement shall be settled by arbitration held in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final, conclusive and binding on the parties to the arbitration. KYM and Member shall each pay one-half of the costs and expenses of such arbitration, and each shall separately pay its respective counsel fees and expenses.
  11. Member understands that its membership will be deactivated if its account becomes more than 30 calendar days late.
  12. KYM reserves the right to change or modify the Fees or payment schedule (including, without limitation, increasing prices and charging a fee for upgrades) at any time. KYM will strive to provide you with reasonable notice prior to making any fee changes or modifications. KYM reserves the right to withdraw, suspend, or refuse to renew the membership or any class pass of a Member, Client whose conduct is, or may deemed to be in KYM’s reasonable opinion, damaging to the character of KYM or amounts to a breach of the Terms and Conditions, Terms and Services, or any other policy of KYM.

You should never disregard medical advice or delay seeking it because of a statement you have read on any of KYM’s Websites, Blogs, spoken about at the KYM Center, or stated by any of KYM’s representatives. KYM is not engaged in rendering personal medical advice or treatment, and all Services are for educational purposes only. The information provided should not be used in lieu of advice given by qualified medical professionals such as your doctor. It is important that this information is only used in conjunction with qualified medical guidance.

You must always consult your doctor before beginning an exercise program. If you experience any discomfort or pain during an exercise routine you must immediately cease the activity and seek the assistance of a physician.
