Iyengar Yoga Studio

POLICIES & PRACTICES

We love what we do at Destination Health and are excited to share our services with those who call this amazing island home and with those who visit each year. Our policies are designed to meet the needs of the majority of our clients. If you need special accommodations, do not hesitate to bring your need to our attention.

ATTIRE

We recommend yoga or loose-fitted clothing for most activities within our center.

 

Clean indoor sneakers/cycle shoes are required for all fitness classes. Yoga classes are conducted barefoot.

Undergarments are optional during our therapy treatments and in our infrared sauna and flotation tank. Towels will be provided as covering.  More information about attire and preparation for spa services is available on our treatment pages. 

ATTENDANCE

Please arrive 5 minutes before each class. If you are not present at the start of class, you will risk losing your spot to either someone on the waitlist or drop-ins who are physically present at the start of class. Please plan to attend the whole class for which you are registered.

To accommodate all of the clients that want to attend a fitness or yoga class, we have a 12-hour cancellation policy on all classes. This allows those on the waitlist to be notified in time to attend a class.  You can cancel your reservation via your MINDBODY account up to 12 hours prior to the start of class.

If you cancel less than 12 hours before your registered class or are a no-show:

  • Clients with an unlimited class pass will be charged a $14.00 fee for yoga classes or $12.00 for fitness classes.

  • Clients with a class pass will be charged as if you had attended the class.

  • As a courtesy, you may cancel your reservation with less than 12 hours before class to open the space for another client in the class, but the late cancellation policy is still applicable.

 

Massage, Sauna, and private or small group sessions require a 24-hour cancellation. Less than 24 hrs notice requires payment of the full price of the scheduled session.

If you are unable to attend a class due to an emergency, email us at info@destinationhealthmdi.com.

GENERAL USE

Please help us preserve the peace and tranquility of our center. We request that you keep voices down when in the waiting room to avoid disturbing other clients. We also ask that you restrict cell phone use in any area of the center with the exception of the lobby area.

Glass and open containers of food or liquid are not allowed in the studio or sauna. Plastic and metal water bottles are encouraged. To reduce the risk of cross contamination, we will be removing our refillable water stations. Please bring your own so you can keep hydrated during your sweat sesh!

We do have a locker room with showers and changing rooms for your convenience. We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items, so please avoid bringing in highly valuable items. 

PAYMENT & GRATUITY

Destination Health accepts cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express in our physical location. We recommend purchasing online prior to arrival if possible, using our website or by going through the Mindbody App.

 

Tipping is left to the discretion of our guests. Standard gratuity for therapy treatments and private consultations is 18%. For your convenience, envelopes are provided at the front desk.

COVID-19 RESPONSE:

UPDATE IN OUR POLICIES

Your Health and Wellbeing is Our Primary Concern.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created health and safety challenges for
communities across the United States and around the world including ours. In
response, we will adopt social distancing policies in our new building to slow the
spread of the coronavirus and to keep healthcare systems from being
overwhelmed. There is evidence that these efforts helped to “flatten the curve”
and save lives.

We understand that this is not the easiest course of action, but we belive it to be the right and responsible one. Now, as regions globally begin to lift social distancing requirements in preparation to re-open public spaces, we remain committed to supporting our community and our staff. 

The use of our facility will be different as well (see below).

  • There is an 5-8-student limit per class depending on the class to allow for social distancing.
