If you are using a voucher as payment for a class, it must be redeemed by us ON or BEFORE the expiration date. You will need to present your voucher, complete with the redemption code and PIN number (if applicable) at the time of your scheduled class.

What if my voucher is expired? Will you still honor it?

We will honor vouchers used for payment for two (2) weeks past the expiration date.

Expired vouchers may NOT be applied towards any classes that are discounted or priced at a special rate.
