Our goal is to create a supportive and nurturing space for our students in all the classes that we offer. In order to cultivate this space, we have put a few guidelines in place at our Modo Nanaimo studios:


Many students arrive at our studio to take a break from the business of their daily lives, so we ask that you please leave all electronic devices outside of the hot room.  Cell phones, car keys, and bags should be stored in our changing rooms. Smartwatches should be put on silent and notifications turned off.


Please keep the room a silent space and leave all conversations (even whispering) outside the hot room. Before and after class is a special time that students use to meditate, decompress, and integrate their practice before the rest of their day.


Students can sign up for class up to 2 hours before class begins.


We will hold your spot in class up until 5 minutes prior to the start of class. At that time, we release any unclaimed spots to students who are waitlisted for the class to those who are physically present in the studio.  If you are registered for the class and do not arrive at least 5 minutes prior, you may lose your spot to someone from the waitlist, so please make every attempt to arrive as early as possible.


You can cancel your class online or from your Modo app up to 1 hour before class to avoid losing the class on your account. 


For the benefit of teachers and students alike, we do not allow any students into class once the teacher has entered the studio and class has begun. We recommend that students arrive 15 minutes in advance to class as the doors may be locked 2 minutes before class begins. Thanks for respecting our time boundaries to create a supportive space and nurturing community where we can practice yoga.
