Getting Started

Advanced, Intermediate & Beginners Yoga Bristol

Get started with Yogafurie – Suitable for those looking for Advanced,
Intermediate & Beginners Yoga in Bristol

Here at Yogafurie in Bristol we teach regular Yoga classes in a hot room. We heat the room to between 30-42°C (depending on the class style) and practice traditional, authentic Yoga. Why so warm? In a nutshell, you move and breathe better when you’re warm.

We provide yoga classes with expert teachers with an in-depth knowledge and experience of yoga. We offer small group yoga classes and even if you think you’re a beginner, we have many classes that cover beginners yoga in Bristol.

 All the good benefits of Yoga happen more quickly in the warmth.  Our state-of- the-art heating system constantly feeds in clean, fresh (warm!) air. The humidity is constant at 50% (same as the average home). It’s warm, but not stuffy and uncomfortable – more like being outside in a hot country.

What do I need to do?

We have introduced important safety measures! Please follow the button below to make sure you know what to bring and how we are leading the way in keeping you safe.

What do I need to bring?
Please arrive in plenty of time before the class starts

It's not possible to join the class after it starts, so apologies in advance in you are unable to join due to traffic/other unavoidable delays!

Throughout COVID please bring your own mat

If you don't own one, don't worry, we sell a range of great value Yoga mats at our studio. It's not possible to deep clean Yoga mats and equipment in between classes to a safe enough standard for us to lend to you.

You need to have a towel to put over your mat

If you haven't brought one then we can lend you one for just £1 per class. We use Yoga Bum towels as we like them. If you like them too, you can buy a brand new one at reception.

Wear something that's comfortable in 42℃ heat

It's very warm in there so light, loose clothing is advised. Here's suggestions about what people usually wear, but it's all about wearing what you're comfortable with. Ladies usually wear a vest with shorts or leggings. Guys usually like to wear a vest with shorts. Guys, please wear shorts with a built-in brief, or wear briefs under your shorts.

Please bring water, or a container to put water in

Make sure that you keep hydrated in class. All of the water taps in the changing rooms dispense drinking water. Sorry, we can't fill your water bottles at reception.

Good to Know
Yogafurie regularly machine washes all mats and equipment

This is relevant to non-COVID times where it is safe for us to lend you yoga mats and equipment. In those normal times (which we hope will come back soon) we ask you to use the eco cleaner provided to clean your mat and equipment after your class so that we can keep it hygienic in between washes

We keep the studio very clean

A guarantee that we have kept historically. We believe cleanliness to be very important when you're looking to take time out for your health and wellbeing.

All lost property is given to charity if unclaimed

If you think you have left something behind then please contact us! We have a lost property box, which we periodically empty and donate to charity

It's best not to use heat rub/heat gels before a class

Some students who have used heat rub before a class have found their skin get an uncomfortable feeling with the heat sensation of the heat run and the 42℃ heat

Feel free to chat in the studio

Until the class starts. Use the class as an opportunity to go within, rather than giving your energy away in talking

Ask the teacher questions if you want to

It's okay to ask for help, modifications, variations or clarification on any aspect of the class.

Booking and Cancellations

Registering and booking your hot yoga class is easy and straightforward. You can buy a membership and book a class with ease:

Classes & Pricing Options Terms and Conditions

Yogafurie Hot Yoga instructors are very well trained. They will offer lots of instructions that are aimed at keeping you and others around you safe. However – as with any movement practice – there is always a risk of injury. By coming to the Hot Yoga class, you acknowledge this and accept responsibility for any injuries you sustain.

You can avoid injury by listening and responding to signals that your body tells you. It’s a good idea to approach movement with care and see how each movement feels.  It’s up to you to hold yourself back and rest whenever you feel that the practice is not suitable for you, to ask questions whenever you are unsure of the instruction, and to ask for modifications whenever you feel that your body needs them.

Registering and booking your hot yoga class is easy and straightforward. You can sign up, buy a membership and book a class with ease:

Register as a Yogafurie Member Online

Hot Yoga Class Timetable – We run 16 classes per week, so you’ll be sure to find one that fits within your schedule.

Hot Yoga Membership – We have great value hot yoga memberships, with everything from a single class to a no contract monthly membership. Find out more.

We’d like as many students to be able to make a class as possible. If you can’t attend a booked class for any reason then your space could be used by another student, and vice versa.

With that in mind, please cancel via the app or website as soon as you know you can’t make it. You can cancel right up to the last minute.

Yogafurie may suspend your online booking function for 2 weeks if you consistently book and do not attend classes.

This means that you’ll still be able to attend classes, but you won’t be able to reserve a space for that class online for 2 weeks. After the 2 weeks, you will be able to reserve your classes online again. There is no limit on the amount of times that Yogafurie is able to suspend online booking privileges.

If you have particular circumstances that make attendance really hard to predict then speak to our Admin, Reception or Management team (in complete confidence of course) and we might be able to work something out for you.

We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before a class starts to ensure that you have plenty of time. We close the doors when each class starts, so that we can minimise disturbance for students. If you are late to a class then you will be refused entry.

If you hold a monthly membership and are going away for a month or longer, then you can ask us to suspend your monthly payment for a reduced fee of £5 per month. We need notice of your intention to suspend via email of at least 5 days before your next membership payment is due, otherwise suspension won’t be possible. We will arrange a date for you to return to practice and for membership payments to restart. The minimum time you can suspend your membership is one month.

All 10 class passes are valid for 3 months from the date of the first class following purchase. Once purchased, you will need to start your 10 class pass within one month, and then the 3 months validity will start from there. Should this need to be extended please email Yogafurie. There is a £20 fee to extend the class pass credits by 6 weeks.

Cancelling your membership: You forfeit any remaining class credit balance when you cancel. If you pay monthly, then please make sure you cancel by email to info@yogafurie.com. Don’t leave it any later, or you might still be charged

All monthly recurring memberships (apart from our Hot & Flexible membership) require 3 month’s notice of cancellation. Your membership needs to run for a minimum of one month before you can give notice to cancel this membership. The day that you send email requesting cancellation is the 1st day of your month’s notice. Should you cancel between payment dates, then the final payment will be a pro-rata amount to complete the 3 month’s notice.

There are no refunds of any memberships, classes, class passes or into offers paid but not used. Any membership fees or other fees that are not used by you cannot be refunded or held as credit.

Any membership fees that have been paid whilst in the 3 month notice period but cannot be used cannot be held as credit.

The Hot & Flexible membership is the only membership that does not require a 3 month notice period for cancellation.

If you have signed up for a monthly membership, and stop attending class but do not cancel or suspend, we cannot refund any payments made towards a membership that hasn’t been used. The cancellation and suspension process is outlined above.

The suspension and cancellation processes are separate. You can suspend, or you can cancel your membership, and the above policies apply. You cannot cancel your membership whilst your membership is suspended.

Sometimes monthly payments are missed, perhaps due to an expired card saved to the customers account, or for other reasons. We understand that this can happen and are here to help and work with you to get your membership back on track. As this is a time consuming process, should payment be missed more than 3 times by one client in any 12 month period then there will be an Administration fee of £15.

Please show Yogafurie staff and representatives respect when communicating with Yogafurie. Yogafurie reserves the right to change or end any monthly subscription for any reason including abusive or antisocial behaviour towards our staff. Yogafurie will provide customers with a subscription one month’s notice regarding any alteration or cancellation. Any membership fees that have been paid cannot be refunded or held as credit.

The Yoga & Hot Yoga industry is constantly evolving. As a result, Yogafurie reserves the right to modify its memberships and pricing structure. On the rare occasion that this occurs, if you are currently a member with Yogafurie, we will communicate with you clearly via email the details of any changes. You will be provided with clarity of information so that you understand exactly what changes will be taking place. Furthermore, if this affects you in any way, you will be offered 1 month’s notice so that you are able to edit or cancel your membership should you feel that is necessary.

Privacy & Your Data

Yogafurie reserves the right to reasonably change or modify the Terms and Conditions at any time, and will always protect the privacy of your data in line with the law.

We comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and there are two ways in which we might lawfully process your personal data.

CONTRACTUAL

This is when we process personal data which directly relates to purchases or to the management of contracts, packages, or any product that involves Yoga. This data might have been entered by a current or former member or hirer. It might have been entered by someone who added personal details in to our online platform (MindBody Online) but may not have gone on to make a purchase or buy contracts, packages, or other Yoga related products. The data might have been entered by a staff member on behalf of (and at the request of) a natural person, eg in telephone purchases.

We collect your name, address, email address, email address, date of birth, and some simple health information that you provide when you register. You can also add card details to your profile. All of this enables us to provide all classes, courses, workshops, retreats, holidays, space hire, and product purchase options to you.

We don’t store this data. It’s hosted by our online partner (MindBody Online).

GDPR AND MINDBODY

Here is key information about how MindBody Online stores your data, given in Q&A format. For any further queries, please contact us at Yogafurie.

Where is MINDBODY’s consumer data stored? Where are MINDBODY’s backup servers located?
MINDBODY stores all data in servers and backup servers located in the United States. MINDBODY has Privacy Shield certification which complies with GDPR regulations related to transferring data outside of the EU. Click here for a detailed explanation of how the Privacy Shield requirements align with the new GDPR guidelines.

Will consumers have “the right to be forgotten” (have their data removed from MINDBODY upon request)?
MINDBODY is currently creating tools and processes to assist customers with fielding requests from their clients who ask to remove their information from MINDBODY databases.

Will MINDBODY be introducing a clearly defined retention period for consumer data?
MINDBODY is reviewing its procedures to ensure that data is retained no longer than is required. Identifiable consumer data will be removed if requested by the consumer and approved by the data controller (Yogafurie Ltd).

Does MINDBODY have a documented Breach Notification Process?
Yes, they have an internal, documented Breach Notification Process. Externally, they will be updating their Terms of Service to include a more detailed description of their notification obligations in the event of a data breach.

How can clients unsubscribe from emails sent from my MINDBODY site?
Clients can opt out of texts and emails by using the Unsubscribe link on the email or by contacting Yogafurie and requesting opt-out.

Which of the MINDBODY auto emails are operational (must be sent even if clients have opted out of all communication preferences)?
The following auto emails are considered operational, and will be sent regardless of whether a client has opted out of emails:

  • Appointment Confirmation
  • AutoPay Failed Notification
  • Client Schedule
  • Forgot Login Information
  • Gift Card Delivery Email
  • Purchase Receipt where requested

Will MINDBODY be updating its contractual terms with respect to GDPR?
Yes, they are currently undertaking a coordinated effort to update contractual terms with customers, partners and vendors.

Will financial records be affected if a client requests to be forgotten?
No. MINDBODY is creating a process so if clients request to be forgotten, they will be able do so without impacting necessary and legally-required financial and operational data.

How are erasure requests handled?
As the data controller, Yogafurie Ltd is responsible for determining whether to honour a request to be forgotten. Yogafurie will be responsible for approving or declining every erasure request. These factors are taken into account, as they may indicate that the client has an outstanding balance that they are obliged to pay before deletion can be processed:

  • Scheduled payments
  • Active memberships, contracts, holidays, training programs, retreats, room hires, or other ongoing purchases.
  • Unpaid visits.
  • Unused products.
  • Positive or negative account balance.
  • Upcoming visits already scheduled.
  • Documents or liability information that need to be downloaded or recorded for business records.
  • Any ongoing or past complaints made against you. (Complaints are extremely rare).

CONSENT

This is when you opt in to receive our direct marketing such as, email newsletters, promotions and events, or automated text messages. This use of personal data applies to both anyone who has registered with MindBody Online and is usually restricted to just your name, address, email address and telephone number.

You may opt out of receiving our newsletters and marketing at any time, whether an active user or not. If you wish to opt out from direct marketing you will be able to do so via an unsubscribe link included in each marketing email, or you can contact us.

Under the Consent basis of lawful processing you are entitled to the right to be forgotten (erased from our systems) and the right to ask us to transfer the personal data that you supplied us to another company. Contact us if you wish to make such a request.

When someone visits Yogafurie.com, we use third-party services (Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel) to collect standard internet log information, details of visitor behaviour patterns and information about how you interact with our website if you’ve clicked through from one of our social media posts or advertisements.

We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site, and to make relevant offers.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF WEBSITE USE

The content of the pages of our website is for your general information and use and is subject to change without notice. Your use of any information or materials on this website is entirely at your own risk, for which we shall not be liable, and it shall be your own responsibility to ensure that any products, services or information available through this website meet your specific requirements. This website contains material which is owned by or licensed to us. This material includes, but is not limited to, the design, layout, look, appearance and graphics. Reproduction is prohibited other than in accordance with ‘fair use’ as set out by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Unauthorised use of this website may give rise to a claim for damages and/or be a criminal offence.

OUR USE OF COOKIES AND FACEBOOK PIXEL

Both are widely used by many websites to provide functionality and to make your use of the site both efficient and easy. Both provide information to the owners of the site – in the case of yogafure.com, the owner is Yogafurie Ltd. Yogafurie uses this information to improve site functionality, and to make more relevant purchase suggestions on social media.

SECURITY AND PERFORMANCE

Yogafurie.com uses an integrated application (Healcode) to provide timetable information and login services, so that you can directly access your personal data on MindBody Online. To deliver this service it processes the IP addresses of visitors to our website and collects your username and password if you wish to login.

PEOPLE WHO CONTACT US VIA SOCIAL MEDIA

We respond individually to messages or comments on social media. We may delete your comment if it is inappropriate or spreads hate or discrimination in any form.

PEOPLE WHO EMAIL US

Most emails are entirely appropriate and we will interact with you to progress the conversation. Do remember however that any email sent to us, including any attachments, may be monitored and used by us for reasons of security. Email monitoring or blocking software may also be used. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you send to us is within the bounds of the law.

PEOPLE WHO MAKE A COMPLAINT ABOUT ANOTHER USER TO US

When we receive a complaint from a person we create a file containing the details of the complaint. This normally contains the identity of the complainant and any other individuals involved in the complaint.

We will only use the personal information we collect to process the complaint and to check on our level of service. We may at times compile and publish statistics showing information like the number of complaints we receive, but not in a form which identifies anyone.

We may have to disclose the complainant’s identity to whoever the complaint is about. This is inevitable where, for example, the accuracy of a person’s record is in dispute. If a complainant doesn’t want information identifying him or her to be disclosed, we will try to respect that. However, it may not be possible to handle a complaint on an anonymous basis.

We will keep personal information contained in complaint files for three years from closure, unless we have a legal obligation to keep it for longer. If you request to be “forgotten”, any complaint information about you that has legal implications might mean that we have to decline the request. Complaint files will be kept secure, and access to it will be restricted according to a need to know principle.

PEOPLE WHO USE OUR SERVICES

We offer various services to our users and customers. We have to hold the details of the people who have requested our services, in order to provide it to them. However, we only use these details to provide the service requested, or for other closely related purposes. For example, we might use information to carry out a survey to find out if they are happy with the level of service they received.

Incomplete or duplicate registrations sometimes occur. In these cases, we may contact you to offer help or to seek clarification.

We use third-party data processors to manage customer data and payments. These data processing companies are PCI and/or GDPR compliant. They include, but are not limited to, MindBody Online and Paysafe (Netbanx). Further information on these companies can be found on their websites or supplied by us upon request.

In addition, should a member fall behind with their monthly payments or fail to make other committed payments, it may be necessary for us to share their name, address, contact details and payment information with our accounting, legal and/or debt recovery companies.

JOB APPLICANTS, CURRENT AND FORMER YOGAFURIE EMPLOYEES, AND SUBCONTRACTORS

When individuals and/or subcontractors apply to work with us or provide services for us, we will only use the information they supply to us to process their application and to monitor recruitment statistics. Where we want to disclose information to a third party, for example where we want to take up a reference or obtain a disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau we will not do so without informing them beforehand unless the disclosure is required by law.

Personal information about unsuccessful approaches will be held for 36 months after the recruitment exercise has been completed, in case other opportunities arise for which they might be suitable. It will then be destroyed/deleted.

If you are working with us then we will store and process personal data enabling and supporting this. This will include any relevant contracts and non-disclosure agreements The information contained in this will be kept secure and will only be used for purposes directly relevant to the work in hand and your role in it.

COMPLAINTS OR QUERIES

We try to meet the highest standards when collecting and using personal information. For this reason, we take any complaints we receive about this very seriously. We encourage people to bring it to our attention if they think that our collection or use of information is unfair, misleading or inappropriate. We would also welcome any suggestions for improving our procedures.

This privacy notice was drafted with brevity and clarity in mind. It does not provide exhaustive detail of all aspects of our collection and use of personal information. However, we are happy to provide any additional information or explanation needed. Any requests for this should be sent to us.

ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION

We try to be as open as it can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information by contacting us. If we do hold information about you we will:

  • Give you a description of it;
  • Tell you why we are holding it;
  • Tell you who it could be disclosed to;
  • Let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form. Remember you can see it at any time anyway through our website or the free smartphone app, MindBody Connect.
