Studio Etiquette


Welcome to Karuna!  Many people at Karuna have a sensitivity or allergy to perfumes and scented products which can set off a severe allergic reaction. In an effort to make Karuna a place for everyone, please refrain from using these unnaturally scented products while practicing at Karuna.


If you have never been to a class or yoga workshop at Karuna before, please plan to arrive approximately 10 minutes early to class so that you can review and sign a liability waiver (unless you have already registered yourself online and have signed it there).

Please remove your shoes before entering the studio.  There is a coat room in which you may leave your coat and shoes if you wish; please bring your valuables into the studio with you.

We have mats and props available for use (free of charge) if you do not have your own.

For all classes and workshops, there are three payment options:

  1. Pay online using MindBodyOnline.
  2. Mail a check or money order.
  3. Pay with cash, check/money order, or credit/debit at our studio.

Paper tickets are not issued for any event. If you pay through MindBodyOnline, you will receive an email confirmation of your payment, and you will automatically be enrolled electronically into the roster of participating students.  If you pay by cash or check, you will receive confirmation from our office (please include contact info with registration so that we can reach you).

Cancellation Policy: Unless otherwise noted, a full refund (minus a 15% processing fee) will be given if notice is received up to one week prior to the event. No refund will be given if notice is received after one week prior to the event. **Please note that Krishna Das tickets are non-refundable; if you cannot attend the event, you are welcome to give you ticket(s) to a friend.**
