Studio Etiquette

Booking your hammock

  1. Arrive 10 min early
  2. Avoid slippery material clothing (cotton is best)
  3. Wear a fitted shirt with sleeves. Tank tops expose sensitive skin under the arms to rubbing which can leave marks on your skin and we are also a very clean studio that likes to keep our hammocks clean. Once you get used to moving with the fabric and you can keep it away from your under arms (as a beginner this is tough to do) then you are welcome to wear a tank top.
  4. Remove all  jewelry that may get caught on or snag the hammock. Especially rings!
  5. Avoid eating an hour before class please...!
  6. Yoga mat optional but really not necessary. Our floors are soft.
  7. Bring water! 
  8. Beginners please be mindful of the class level and your experience. Faster paced + advanced classes are not slowed for beginners.

 

How much will the hammock hold

We use safety rated rock climbing gear that is designed to hold hundreds to thousands of pounds. The fabric itself is also tested to hold up to 1000lbs.

 

Precautions and Requirements

Our staff has expert training to guide you through the class and can make recommendations and suggestions for you to reach health goals, but we are not physicians. Your concerns on health related issues, medications and appropriateness of exercise should be thoroughly discussed with your personal health care provider before partaking in Flight™ Flow or any of the other yoga classes we offer. We recommend consulting your medical professional before beginning any new exercise form to see if it is appropriate for you.


Your first few classes may be a little uncomfortable at times as your body adjusts to the pressure of the hammock. This also tells you that you are releasing tension and tightness as that is normally what causes the discomfort. 

 

 

What if I'm late?

For safety reasons and out of respect for the students who made it on time, we cannot guarantee entry for late comers. Please be at least 10 min early to get set up, especially if you are new to our studio. We've implemented some very thoughtful details into our studio for your enjoyment that also provide particular purposes. In order for you to get the best experience and introduction to our studio you will need at least 10 min before the class begins.

Once we've gotten to know you and you you've gotten to know us + our studio we don't mind if you sneak in quietly and set yourself up, Please be as quiet as you can and wait on the side when appropriate before getting into your hammock or on your board just to be sure you don't disrupt the energy that is being created.

DROP INS AND CLASS CREDITS WILL NOT BE RETURNED FOR LATE COMERS WHO ARE NOT PERMITTED TO JOIN. IF YOU WISH TO TRY AGAIN YOU CAN RESCHEDULE YOUR DROP IN FOR A $10 FEE. 

 

I have a pass that I can no longer use, can I get a refund?

All purchases are non refundable once purchased but they are transferrable so if you purchase a pass that you can no longer use we are happy to transfer it to someone you choose. 

 

Can I share my pass with my friends and family?

Memberships and class cards cannot be shared but class cards can be transferred if you can no longer use it yourself.

If you are on a VIP membership your friends and family get a special guest rate for drop ins purchased through your account.

 

My group can no longer attend a private party I booked. What are my options?

Deposits gathered for private, group sessions are refundable with a 10 day cancellation notice. 

If you didn't know we did private parties and now you do and want to book one email us! We host many parties for all types of events (bday, bachelorette, office, family fun, you name it!)

 

Anything else I should know?

 

We do not retroactively discount purchases that have already been purchased. Rates can sometimes change without notice. We don't like surprises either but there are times when we may need to change instructors or cancel classes. 

We use Pike13 as our reservation system to book classes, so you’ll need to create a Pike13 account. Because many classes do sell out, we suggest you pre-reserve your class in advance!

After you’ve created your online profile and purchased your class package, you can secure your spot on a web browser or on the app.

Please note: if you late-cancel within 12 hours of your class, you will lose your credit or incur a fee.

 

Classes for beginners

We recommend starting with the Express Flight | Beginner Workshop to get a good handle on how to use the hammock. Jumping into more intense classes at the beginning can sometimes be like drinking from a fire hose. Sounds like a great way to hydrate quickly but doesn't always feel best!

Beginner classes in order of difficulty are
Beginner Flight
Urban Zen Flight
(Morning) Flight Flow - (this is an all levels class and can be a bit fast paced for new comers)

 

Who should not do Flight Yoga?

Easily onset Motion Sickness (this is a common one!)
Pregnancy
Glaucoma
Recent surgery (esp. shoulder, eyes, back, hips, hands or wrist)
Heart disease
Very high or low blood pressure
Easy onset vertigo
Osteoporosis / bone weakness
Recent head injury
Cerebral Sclerosis
Propensity for Fainting
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Severe arthritis
Sinusitis or head cold (this is really uncomfortable when you are inverted)
Hiatal hernia
Disc herniation or acute discogenic disease
Recent stroke
Artificial joints
Radiculitis (inflammation of nerve root in spine)
Severe muscle spasms
Botox (within 6 hours, hanging upside down will give you more lift than you are looking for!)

* Notify instructor before class if you have any contraindications so they can help you modify your practice.

What if I need to cancel?

If you cannot make a class you've signed up for please cancel within 12hrs of class start time.
Less than 12 hrs will result in loss of class credit for punch cards or a $10 late cancel/no show fee for Unlimited pass holders (including New Student passes). If a valid CC is not on file, the pass may be cancelled. 

If you have a VIP monthly recurring membership, or a One Year Unlimited pass, the cancellation fee only applies to your account if you’ve late-cancelled more than three times. You can late-cancel up to three times, after your 3rd, you will be charged a fee.

 

I'm on the waitlist. When do I get in?

Over half of the people who sign up on the waitlist end up getting into the class. If you sign up on the waitlist, please plan on making it to the class.

You can be added to the class up to 1 hour before the class begins. You should receive an email and/or text notification that you have made it into the class. Your notification preferences can be set or changed by logging into your account and changing them in the settings.

If you make other plans after signing up, be sure to cancel your waitlist reservation to leave room for the people who can attend + to also avoid loosing your class credit or being charged a fee.

 

I booked a single class but had to cancel the reservation. What happens now?

If you cancel a registration/drop in; the purchase is not refunded. It is placed back onto your account as a purchased pass and will expire 90 days from purchase.

 

My pass is about to expire. Can I get an extension?

All passes begin on date of purchase and expire the designated time from that date. Unfortunately we are unable to change or extend expiration dates.

 

How can I cancel or pause my membership?

Monthly auto-pay memberships can be cancelled any time after any minimum commitment period is met by emailing us at info@flightroomseattle.com

There is a 30 day notice required for cancellations.

 

Holds can be placed for a minimum of 2 weeks to a maximum of 3 months. Note: there is a hold fee of $20. Once the hold frame time has expired the membership will automatically resume. We like to think we're super human but we cannot keep track of everyones accounts so you'll need to keep track of your own hold dates.
