Light snacks are sometimes available for a donation during breaks. I encourage you eat before arriving. Drinks are also available for a small donation. Feel free to BYOB. Keep your own snacks and drinks near you so you do not have to disrupt the class.
We have regular breaks throughout the session. Use that time to get drinks, stretch and use the bathroom.
Cell Phones / Cameras:
No photography or video permitted. No cell phones or mobile devices can be used in the studio during the session. Turn off the ringer.
No parking in the Studio 23 parking lot! These spots are residential and/or belong to the cleaners (yes they do tow). Street parking along Oak and Encinal is usually available. Meters are free after 6pm.
If we do not get enough sign-ups 7 days prior, we may cancel the session offering a refund to anyone who has already signed up and paid.
We offer a partial refund minus a small meetup.com transaction fee if your cancellation is 7 days or more before the event.

Although we have never had any situation like this arise, please understand that we will remove anyone from the session and/or the premises, without a refund, if your behavior is distracting to others or threatens the safety of anyone.
