Adult Education and Programs Policies

Pre-registration is required for all adult programs. Program capacity is limited.

Registrants will receive a confirmation email with ticket information after registering. Email will also be used to communicate program reminders, specific program considerations, and weather updates. Please ensure we have your correct email on file to receive this information.


• Program registration includes general admission to Cheekwood. Please refer to specific program registration pages for details.

• Cheekwood members receive a 20% discount on workshop registration. Become a member today!

• Please note that current members purchasing tickets without their membership discount are not eligible for a refund of their discount amount after their transaction is completed. Your membership discount will display on the final transaction screen when you are prompted to enter credit card information.

Registration Cancellations and Transfers

You may cancel your registration up to two weeks before the program and receive a full refund, subject to a processing fee. Registrations can only be transferred one time and must be transferred within the same program (ie: from a yoga class to a yoga class) and of similar price. Exchange is based on availability and is not guaranteed. Transfers may be granted up to 48 hours before a class or workshop. A new receipt will be emailed once the transfer is complete, which can take up to 24 hours.

Registration changes and/or cancellations must be made by emailing or calling Cheekwood Visitor Services or the Cheekwood Education Department. Registrations cancelled less than two weeks before the start date are not eligible for refunds. Registrants unable to attend a program due to COVID-19 may be allowed a program credit that can be applied within one year of cancellation.

Registrants with two or more “No Shows” within a season will not be allowed to attend a class or workshop the following season. “No Shows” are documented when registrants do not communicate via email or phone either a cancellation in advance of the class or do not attend class altogether.

Program Cancellations

Low Enrollment: Cheekwood reserves the right to cancel any program due to low enrollment. If a program is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will be notified no less than 5 days in advanced and refunded in full. To help ensure programs are not canceled due to low enrollment, register early and encourage others to do the same.

Weather: Cheekwood reserves the right to cancel any outdoor, advanced registration program due to weather. If a program is cancelled due to weather, registrants will be notified in advance and will be offered a program voucher valid for one year after the class date.

Safer at Home: In the event of a Mayoral Safer at Home order in which Cheekwood closes to the public, adult programs will be cancelled. Registrants will be notified in advance and allowed a program credit that can be applied within one year of cancellation.

Wait Lists

If a class or workshop is sold out, a wait list will be posted on the registration page. Wait list submissions do not guarantee a spot in the class or workshop. You will be emailed if a spot becomes available for you to register.
