(arrive in) the studio
How much time do I need before start of my session?
You won’t need much, but we recommend you to arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the indicated start time so you have some time to check in, find your spot and get ready for your session.
Can I arrive after start time?
With the group experience in mind, we do encourage you to be on time (5-10 minutes before class starts so you have enough time to check in and prepare for class). During class the studio doors will be locked.
Do I need to check in?
Yes, please make sure to check-in at the reception upon arrival, so we know you’re in.
What do I bring?
Mats and props are available in the studio and can be used free of charge. We do ask you to clean your mat properly after class.
Do you have lockers?
Yes – lockers are provided for your bag, laptop, phone, keys, jacket, whatever you don’t need during your class, workshop or course.
Do you have changing rooms?
Yes, our changing rooms are equipped with showers and shower products that you can use free of charge. Please bring your own towel.
What if I leave something behind?
To reclaim what’s yours, please send us an e-mail with a clear description at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I stay a little bit longer after class or arrive early?
Currently, the studio is open 15 minutes before and after class.
How do I access Bondi TV?
Please note that your login credentials are not the same as your standard Studio Bondi login. For Bondi TV you need to create a separate account and subscription (Monthly or Yearly Unlimited). You can choose your username and password when creating your account. You can access Bondi TV here.
Can I use Bondi TV with my studio subscription or class pass?
No, for Bondi TV you need a separate subscription, either on a monthly basis or on an annual basis. It’s a great add-on to studio classes.
- Do I need an account to book a session?
Do you also allow walk-ins?
Because we’re a boutique studio there’s always a maximum number of mats available, so we recommend booking your class in advance. All our bookings have to be made online.
What if I need to cancel?
Please do so via your account on the website or the app, at least 4 hours prior to the class start time.
What if I forget to cancel or if I’m too late?
If you forget to cancel or if the cancellation window is already closed at the time of your cancellation (4 hours prior to start of class), this is regarded as a Late Cancel. If you have a class pack, this class will be charged from that class pack. If you have an unlimited subscription, a EUR5 Late Cancel Fee will be charged. Because we work with a maximum number of mats for each class and we otherwise hold a spot for you, we always appreciate it if you can let us know that you won’t be there – also if it’s just a couple of minutes before start of class.
What is your waiting list policy?
If you have joined the waitlist, you’ll be automatically enrolled when a spot opens up. You’ll be notified by email.
Is there something for beginners?
Except for our Vinyasa class on Friday evening, we have beginners in almost every class. You will be fine. To be on the super safe side: All our Yin classes are a great place to start. Also, you can try some of our classes at home first, via our online video platform Bondi TV. This series is specifically designed for beginners, guiding you through a classical sun salutation sequence you’ll find in any active (vinyasa style) yoga class.
What language do you speak?
Our sessions are taught in English.
What do I wear?
You can wear whatever you like so long as you’re comfortable and you can move freely. For all yin and meditation sessions it can be nice to bring your sweater and comfy socks as your body may cool down. You don’t need any shoes.
Can I bring water into the yoga room?
Do you sell gift cards?
Yes! You can purchase a gift card in-studio or online. Click here to purchase a gift card online. To redeem a gift card, you can either enter your Gift Card Number online at checkout, or redeem in-studio.
Can I bring the Bondi-vibes to my office or my event?
Yes! We provide one-off, daily, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly yoga & meditation sessions to give your team or event whatever it is you are looking for: re-energize, relax, strength, flexibility, a calm mind or all of the above. Send your request to email@example.com and we will get in touch shortly.
Pregnant, burnout, injury, old, stiff
What if I’m pregnant, burnout or injured?
In case of pregnancy, burnout or an injury please tell the teacher in advance and make sure to listen to your body; it’ll tell you what you need. To be on the safe side, please check with your doctor before joining a session.
For all expecting moms: if you have experience with yoga and you know your depths and modifications, you can join any session you feel comfortable with (make sure to tell the teacher; it doesn’t always show). We also have a special prenatal class (check schedule here) in our studio and online prenatal classes to do at home (or wherever you are) at Bondi TV.
What if I’m too old or too stiff?
We think you’re never too old or too stiff, but if you feel that way you may want to start with a gentle practice. Try for example one of our Yin classes.
What if I’m feeling great?
Also if you’re feeling great, listen to your body during class. We are often very ambitious and are trying to go a little bit deeper, a little bit further. However, if you feel any pain in the exercises, please return to a comfortable position. Don’t force yourself, rather relax into a pose.
Rent of space
Can I hold my event at the studio?

Do you also allow walk-ins for workshops and courses?
