The Zen Shed

General Terms and Conditions

These General Terms and Conditions should be read in conjunction with the Privacy policy and Online Booking policies set out below, and separately on our website, and the Studio Rules displayed on the website and in the studio premises at 54 New Street, Worcester, WR1 2DL.

In these documents, “us “ or “the company” or “the studio” refers to Ndoro Wellness Limited (trading as The Zen Shed). “our website” or “the site” refers to the website and related apps operated by thezenshed.com.

These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of England and the parties submit to the jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales.

Use of the website and the studio

The Zen Shed Website is comprised of various Web pages operated by The Zen Shed. On entering The Zen Shed Website and/or The Zen Shed Studio at 54 New Street, Worcester, WR1 2DL, you agree to be bound by these General Terms and Conditions, in conjunction with the other documents referred to above.

Becoming a Zen Shed member, booking classes, cancellations and refunds

Once you complete and submit the online registration form, you will become a Zen Shed member, and will be able to book classes online on our website, or at the studio reception. In regard to online bookings you are referred to the specific policies set out in the Terms and Conditions for Online Bookings regarding signing in for classes and our policy on refunds and cancellations. Bookings for drop in classes must be made at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled class time, or may not be accepted.

Other than for class cancellations noted within the Online Booking polices referred to above, refunds for other goods and services will not be given. No refunds will be given for classes outstanding on a class card that are unused, or in relation to any time remaining on a monthly or annual membership card that has still to elapse.

Refunds for physical items purchased at the studio will only be given if the goods are returned still within the original, unopened packaging and along with the original receipt as proof of purchase. This does not effect your statutory rights.

Online Booking Policies

When you book online, you must be at the studio in plenty of time to sign in to the class. We advise you arrive at reception at least 10 minutes before the scheduled class starting time. If you have not checked in 5 minutes before, we may reallocate your place and we cannot guarantee you will be admitted to the class. In this case, this will be treated as a late cancellation and no refund will be given.

If you can’t attend a class you have booked online, you may cancel the class up to 4 hours in advance and receive a full refund, or if you are using a class card, the class will be credited back to you. Cancellations can only be processed online. We do not have the facility to process cancellations over the phone or at studio reception. A cancellation within 4 hours of the scheduled class start time will be considered a late cancellation and no refund will be given.

If you no-show or cancel late for two classes within a 14 day period, we reserve the right to suspend your ability to book online. Classes can get full and we want everyone to have the maximum chance of getting into the class they want to attend.

Payment for classes will be taken at the point of booking online using your debit or credit card. Unfortunately we do not accept American Express. If you have a multiple class pass, we will deduct the class from your pass at the time of booking.

Every class has a maximum number of places which can be booked in advance online. If the class is full you will have the opportunity to be placed onto a waitlist, for which you will not be charged. Should a place become available, we will advise people on the wait list for that class, and the spaces which have become available will be allocated on a strict first come, first served basis.

Access to and use of Facilities

The studio is open 30 minutes before the first class each morning and evening, and closes 30 minutes after the last class each morning and evening. Class times are published on the website. Every effort will be made to ensure the studio is accessible to members and other guests at those times. The studio will not however accept any liability if, for any reason, the studio is not open or accessible during the planned opening times.

The studio will make every effort to ensure that classes run according to the published schedule, and that the teacher taking the class is as advertised on the website. In the event that a class is unavoidably cancelled, refunds will be given to any member who has made an online booking on the same basis as if a cancellation request had been received in good time from that member.

The studio reserves the right to bar from or expel any member, guest or other person from the studio premises at its absolute discretion, where the conduct of that person is felt to be antisocial, impinges upon the good name and brand of the studio and The Zen Shed, interferes with the enjoyment of the facilities by other members or guests or in any other way amounts to a breach of these Terms and Conditions. Aggressive, abusive or threatening behavior towards any member of studio staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Any personal belongings are brought onto the studio premises at the member’s own risk and the studio does not accept liability for theft, loss or damage of any such items. Secure lockers are available in the changing rooms at no charge.

Health and Medical

We will also ask you to complete a Registration Form when you sign up which includes health and medical questions in order that we can be aware of any matters that are relevant to you and your yoga, pilates or meditation practice. You should however be aware that we are not a registered medical clinic and we do not employ registered medical practitioners.

Yoga and associated practices involve physical and mental exercises, which may be strenuous, and we strongly recommend that you seek advice from your doctor before commencing any exercise routine or practice to ensure that it is suitable for you. The Zen Shed disclaims any liability or loss arising in connection with any exercises or practices promoted by or taught at the studio.

The studio reserves the right to refuse access to any member if it considers that the health of the individual may be put at risk by the use of the studio facilities. Notwithstanding this, it remains the member’s sole responsibility to ensure that any classes or therapies he/she chooses to attend are suitable for them.

Safety considerations

Members and their guests should make themselves aware of all fire exits and other fire precautions within the studio. In case of an emergency, the instructions of the studio staff must be followed.

Glassware and food for consumption are not allowed in the studio, and smoking and vaping are strictly prohibited on the studio premises.

Members and guests should be considerate of other members, guests and staff in all matters of health and hygiene, and are asked to wear appropriate foot coverings if they have an infectious or transmittable foot condition.

Children

Children under the age of 16 are not allowed to practice in the studio, unless accompanied by a responsible adult, and only after that responsible adult has confirmed with the teacher that the class is suitable for a child to practice.

Under no circumstances will anyone under the age of 17 be allowed to join a Hot Yoga class.
