Cancellations and Transfers

Cancellation by participant:

Participants may cancel a program registration up to 72 hours before the start of the program and receive a full refund. Please email to cancel. If a cancelation is not received within 72 hours of the program, a refund will not be issued.

Cancellation by Cheekwood due to weather:

If a program that is strictly held outdoors is cancelled due to weather, participants will receive a class voucher to redeem for a class of equal or lesser value at a later date. Vouchers are good for one time use only, and are valid up to a year after the originally scheduled class date. Classes will not be moved indoors in order to prevent COVID-19 transmission.

Other cancellations by Cheekwood: 

While we always aim to present all scheduled programs, Cheekwood may have to cancel a program for non-weather-related reasons. If a program is cancelled, all participants who have provided contact information will be notified no less than 48 hours in advance and refunded in full.

Class Transfer Requests:

Registrations can only be transferred one time and must be transferred within the same program (ie: from a yoga class to a yoga class). 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.

Please email if you would like to transfer your class registration.

No Show Policy:

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.

COVID-19 Policy

Wellness Policy

Masks are not currently required for outdoor classes. If there is inclement weather, class will be cancelled and will not be moved indoors. If a class is cancelled, there is an option to receive a voucher to redeem at a future date.

Workshop Policy

While masks are not currently required for outdoor classes, masks are required for all indoor classes, regardless of vaccination status. Adult workshop participants are also required to show either proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test result (within 72 hours of the class) on the date of the workshop.


Talent Release Policy

By participating in an adult program, participants grant permission, without restriction, to Cheekwood to record voice, image, and likeness for use in Cheekwood’s advertising, programming, promotional material, or for whatever purpose they may deem appropriate.

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.
