Cancellation/Refund Policy

Winter Weather Policy

Connect with our Facebook group (Sweet Momma Moms), or contact your teacher directly for updates.

Michigan weather and building issues arise from time to time where we are unable to meet in person. When this happens your teacher will provide the same class, at the same time, in the comfort of your home via Facebook Live video.

Look for an event in Sweet Momma Moms Facebook group with your class as the title, (i.e. 'Prenatal Yoga, NYC, 10-11:15.') 

You must request to add yourself to this group at least 10 minutes prior to your class start time (the same time as your regularly scheduled class.) Otherwise, you may miss the window to join in.

Missed Classes

We understand there are times where a student may miss a class due to a variety of reasons, unfortunately there are no refunds for a missed class. There are no makeup classes. While your teacher is the primary teacher of your registration, there will be substitute teachers on occasion. If there is ever a concern about a sub, please contact Elise Bowerman with your concern.

Refund Policy

We are eternally grateful for the popularity of our classes. Due to popularity pre-registration is required. We are reserving a spot just for you! As such, there are no refunds or credits offered.**

** If you are unable to complete a session due to a medical reason that will persist for the remainder of this session (i.e. incompetent cervix, pregnancy hypertension, risk of preterm labor, prolapse, etc.), or baby arrives early please provide a doctor’s note with medical reason and you may be eligible for a refund for the remainder of the session once a doctor's note is received.

Current Prenatal Yoga Student Due in Middle of Next Session

Contact your teacher by text or email privately prior to the current session ending if you'd like to save your spot in order to continue through this pregnancy. We encourage this!

You may continue to pay the special rate of $15/class (rather than the walk-in rate of $20) prior to the current session ending for however many classes you'd like to commit to. (Example: Pay 3 classes for $45 upfront via cash or check (made payable to Sweet Momma Yoga) prior to the current session ending.)

Workshops

1. If you cancel your participation in a workshop 5 business days or more prior to the workshop date, you will receive a refund minus a 25% administration fee.

2. If you cancel your participation in a workshop less than 5 business days prior to the workshop date, there are no refunds and no credits (i.e. to be used for future workshop.)

(This is the waiver for all class, workshops, and appointment types with Elise Bowerman, LLC/Sweet Momma Yoga.)

I hereby accept this waiver and release of liability of Elise Bowerman, LLC, also known as Sweet Momma Yoga, (hereinafter “PROGRAM”), as a condition of participation in yoga classes, training and other related activities in the PROGRAM. I agree to this release of claims and waiver of liability and assume full responsibility for any injury, damage or loss, which may result from participation in classes at any facility where instruction is provided.

I understand that yoga may involve a high level of physical and emotional exertion, and as such, participation in yoga classes involves inherent risks and may result in accident or injury. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body at all times, and make the necessary adjustments to suit my body’s needs.

I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with a physician/my child’s physician prior to and regarding participation in any physical activity, if I feel it is necessary. I represent and warrant that I am/my child is physically fit and able to participate and have no medical conditions that would be exacerbated by the practice of yoga. If I choose to engage in any yoga practice without consulting a physician, I take full responsibility of my body and/or future injuries that may occur from yoga. Should my/my child’s medical condition at any time change in any way which would prevent safe participation in any of the yoga classes I choose to attend (with or without my child), I agree to immediately discontinue attending classes and to consult with my physician/my child’s physician about continuing or resuming participation in the practice of yoga. I acknowledge it is my responsibility to inform the teacher of any medical changes which may occur to myself, fetus, baby or babies. I understand that none of the instructors in the PROGRAM will suggest medical advice or treatment to any participants, as only licensed professionals are qualified to give medical advice. I have been advised and understand that yoga classes may include postures and cardiovascular activity that can be categorized at different levels from beginner through advanced, and I understand that I am responsible for all of my actions in class and determining the level of exertion that is appropriate for me/my child.

I hereby waive and release any and all claims or actions I may now or in the future have and release from all liability and agree not to sue Elise Bowerman, LLC, it’s members, officers, employees, agents, or instructors (including independent contractors), including their respective heirs, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”), for any damages, costs of losses of any kind whatsoever, including, but not limited to, damages, costs or losses from emotional or personal injury, death, or property damage incurred or suffered by me, as a result of my attendance at yoga classes or use of any other goods or services provided by the PROGRAM, or any act of omission including negligence or breach of any statutory or other duty of care on the part of any of the Release Parties, arising out of or related to attendance at and participation in yoga classes or use of any other goods or services provided by the PROGRAM. I further agree to comply with any and all policies in effect from time to time governing my conduct and behavior in yoga classes at the Locations and further agree that the PROGRAM reserves the right to refuse service to any person who does not comply with any such policies, whether or not such policies are written or oral.
I understand that yoga and all activities and instruction provided by the PRORGRAM includes, but is not limited to, physical movements, stretching, breathing exercises, strengthening exercises, meditation techniques, and hands-on physical adjustments for the purpose of improving alignment or understanding of movement; and that I/my child may decline any of these options.

Photo Release:
I give the PROGRAM permission to take instructional and promotional pictures and videos of myself/my child during class time. I give permission to the PROGRAM to use photos/videos of myself/my child in promotional materials, on the website, in social media supporting the community aspect of this practice.

I have had sufficient time to review and seek explanation of this release. I have carefully read it and fully understand it. I voluntarily enter into this release.

Where did everyone go?

You need more help after birth than before. When you’re pregnant, people open doors, carry things, and smile at how much you glow. Once baby comes, where do all those people go? You’re on your own now, expected to know everything, and take care of your baby like every other mom. As if doing it all yourself is some bullsh*t right of passage. We all love baby, but let’s not forget about mom.
