Personal data collected from new Stella Tomlinson – Living in Rhythm students & clients

A certain amount of personal data is collected by Stella Tomlinson before or when you attend your first weekly yoga class or workshop or course. This is for the purposes of meeting insurance company criteria as well as for your health and safety at yoga. Health information is also used to tailor sessions to suit your individual needs.

All information gathered by Stella Tomlinson is treated as confidential and will not be shared with a third party. If you grant permission, data from forms is kept in a secure password protected spreadsheet and only viewed by Stella.

Information submitted by paper form is added to the password protected spreadsheet and then stored securely. There is an opt-in for this on the paper form, and you are able to request that your information is not stored online. In which case your details will not be added to the spreadsheet and your paper form will be kept securely by Stella Tomlinson, for the time determined by the Insurance Company.

For workshops, events and courses Stella Tomlinson uses the Bookwhen online booking system.  Here your data is kept securely (see the Bookwhen privacy policy) and is only viewed by Stella Tomlinson.  The email address & telephone number provided are only used for communication about the booking (email for reminders and phone number in case of cancellation). Online payments through Bookwhen are handled via a secure system called Stripe. See the Stripe privacy policy. Only Stella Tomlinson can see the data held in this system – and can only see your name, email address, card type and the last 4 digits of your card number (i.e. I cannot see and do not hold your full card details).

My Insurance Company request that I keep a record of my customer’s data and registrations for seven years after your last class with me.

If you wish to alter any of your data, review how it is used or wish to request its return to you, please contact Stella Tomlinson on

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information to Stella Tomlinson, in which case Stella Tomlinson may not be able to provide certain services to you.

How I use your contact information

When booking either online, or on paper, you will be asked to sign a disclaimer. In doing so you are agreeing to your email and phone number being used by Stella Tomlinson to inform you of class changes, service updates directly relating to the service you have booked.

You may, of course, decline to submit your email and phone number to Stella Tomlinson, which in some cases may mean that Stella Tomlinson is not be able to provide certain services to you.

If you do not wish to submit your email, and therefore are unable to book online, you can book your class by contacting me on 07741 270448.

Stella Tomlinson mailing lists

Direct marketing emails informing you of new, future or alternative services I am providing, as well as new blog articles and free resources, are sent through a secure permission-based email system called MailChimp (see their Privacy Policy at

When you purchase a service from me you will be invited by email to join my MailChimp email list. You have the ability to Opt-In at this point, and subsequently subscription preferences may be changed by you at any time.

Phone Numbers

I may, occasionally, use your phone number to contact you about urgent class changes or to inform you if a waiting list place has become available (if you are on the waiting list). If you do not wish me to contact you in this way, please inform me in person or by emailing (but please note this means I will be unable to notify you of last-minute class cancellations).
