Our studio policies have been created to ensure transparency and to maintain fair and equitable treatment of all our clients.  

To help us better serve you and to aid the class check-in process, we are requesting that all clients register for their classes in advance.  This helps with planning of the class and ensures that you have a spot.  

How to Register for Class

You may pre-register for class several ways; either through our website scheduler or through our desktop MINDBODY site or by downloading this app from your app store.  If space allows, you may reserve your spot up to 1-Hour before class starts.   Returning Members can "show-up" without a reservation, however a spot is not guaranteed.

How to create / access your Account

You will need to create an online account in order to register online. Please note, if you have been to our studio even ONCE then you already have an account!  You only need to create a password to login to your existing account. To find your account, use the email address you provided the first time you came to the studio. This prevents you from inadvertently creating a duplicate account.  If you have not been to our studio, then you will need to create an account.  Utilizing the MindBody app is the most convenient way to pre-register.

Opt-in for Messages

In order to better serve you and provide you with current information, reminders and notifications, we humbly ask you to “opt-in” to all reminders and notifications.  This will ensure you have all the necessary information needed to manage your account, book your classes, receive purchase receipts and know what is happening at the studio.  Check your notification preferences (MindBody Profile, Click gear icon), "opt-in" for our communications.


For all classes 2-Hour notice is needed to cancel if you are unable to practice. Cancellations may be made on the MINDBODY site or the MINDBODY App only.  Class schedule is subject to change without notice, check our class schedule page for updates.


Please cancel before 2-hour window, if possible.  If your cancellations (late cancel or no-show) become excessive, you may lose the privelage of reserving your spot

Class Cancellations by HHA

Canceled classes due to weather or other unforeseen events will show on the schedule page of our website and the MINDBODY App. Clients with reservations will receive notification by email.   

Drop-In Arrivals

As all classes have pre-registration available and it is highly suggested you reserve your spot, no drop-in arrivals for New Clients.  If, however, members can make a class without pre-registering, members may arrive with the possibility of a spot available, however it's not guaranteed.  All new clients must pre-pay and pre-register before arriving to first class.

Class start times

In order to begin class on time, we ask that you be at the studio, check-in with staff and arrive on your mat at least 5 minutes before class begins.  Front doors lock at class start time.  We get it, sometime life gets in the way and you’re running a bit late; all we ask is you do your best! 

Declined Payments

Please understand that you will be notified if your credit card fails to authorize for any reason, and that a $20 late fee will apply if you do not provide a valid credit card (or alternate payment method) within 2 calendar days of the original rejection date.   Also  understand that your service will be deactivated if your account becomes more than 15 calendar days late.

Payment on Account & Payment for Services

All services require pre-payment, onlilne pricing options are available for purchase.  We allow payments on account for rental mats, towels and beverages.  If your account balance becomes negative, we will automatically add $10 to your account using your credit card on file.  $10 minimum for credit card purchases.  Class rates are subject to change without notice.


There are no extensions, refunds or transfers on ANY class package or membership.  Any unused or unworn retail items may be returned within 7 days from date of purchase for account credit or exchange only.

Lost & Found

Any unclaimed items will be donated immediately.  Please make sure you have all your belongings BEFORE leaving the studio.  Hella Hot Aurora is not responsible for lost or stolen property.

Entrance & Exit

Studio Opens 15 minutes before class begins.  Front Entrance doors lock promptly at class start time and lobby is closed during class sessions.  Front entrance and studio re-open after class for 30 minutes.  Please safely exit the hot room and studio following current social distancing guidelines.
