All transfer requests must take place at the latest: 7 days before the booking date! No transfer will be offered if the transfer request is made less than 7 days before your booked date, as we will be unable to cancel the studio booking and may be liable to pay the studio hire fee & instructor's fees, too.
We are flexible whenever we can be, and apologise for the strictness of our booking rules. This largely is due to the high cost of studio rental & other studio operation costs as well as the high cost of living in the Bay Area.
