Class FAQs

Can I pay for the course in installments?

Yes, courses that cost more than $100 can be paid in two installments: one before the class begins and the second at the mid-point of the session. Courses under $100 must be paid in full at the time of registration.

Can I get a refund for a course that I was not able to attend?

We require 24 hours' notice prior to the first class to cancel your registration. If you cancel with insufficient notice, you will be responsible for the cost of the first class. Withdrawals after the first class will not be refunded. *Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Who is eligible to participate in Center for Wellness programs and services?

The programs and services at the Center for Wellness are available to current affiliates of Harvard University. This includes current faculty and staff, Harvard graduate and undergraduate students, all current HUGHP members, and retirees receiving health care at University Health Services.  Partners/spouses/dependents of current employees and students are also eligible.  Other types of Harvard University affiliates may be eligible for some services.  Special programs may be limited to certain groups because of space constraints, building access, or funding restrictions.

How can I contact my instructor or therapist directly?

The Center for Wellness does not routinely provide contact information for any of our instructors or therapists. However, you can leave your contact information with the Center for Wellness office and we will request that the instructor or therapist contact you.

Will there be a place to change clothes or shower at the location of my class?

There is no locker room space for changing, storage, or showering.  There are 1-2 bathrooms near all of the Center for Wellness class locations, but these are not intended for changing clothes before or after classes.  Coats and belongings can be left on the perimeter of the room, or as directed by the instructor.  

The lighting, temperature, and atmosphere of the spaces are similar to a conference room or a multi-purpose space.

What if I get injured while participating?

If you acquire an injury while participating in a Center for Wellness program you are asked to notify us immediately. A report of the injury will be filed promptly and the appropriate action will be taken.
