These Terms and Conditions apply to any Yoga Activities (see definition below) purchased from YogaWorks (“YogaWorks” or “Company”) and govern the contractual relationship between you (“You”, “I” or “Student”) and YogaWorks with respect to any such Activities.
I understand that if I am paid in full and fulfill all the requirements of the YogaWorks Teacher Training, including in-class hours, additional classes, final practice teach, homework, quizzes and passing both the written and in-class final exams, I will receive a letter of completion, , which can be submitted to the Yoga Alliance or a prospective employer as evidence that I have completed a 200-hour Teacher Training program. Paying for the program and completing the hours alone does not mean I will pass the program.
I understand that YogaWorks requires me to have a minimum of 6 months of consistent yoga practice before enrolling in this training and that YogaWorks reserves the right at any time to ask me to leave the training if the instructor feels that I pose a risk to the physical safety to the instructor or other students or if I am compromising the learning process of the group. Under such circumstances, I understand I will be given a prorated refund, based on the amount of time I have attended in the training.
I understand that YogaWorks reserves the right to ask me to leave the program if I am found plagiarizing, if my behavior is disruptive, inappropriate, negatively impacting other students learning, unethical or violates the Yoga Alliance ethical guidelines. Under such circumstances, I understand I will not be refunded any part of my tuition.
I understand that Students are responsible for assessing their own suitability and capability to participate in a Program. It is the Student’s responsibility to assess the risks and requirements of each Program.
I understand that by registering for a YogaWorks program, I certify that I understand that the Company reserves the right to accept or reject any Student as a participant; to expel any participant from the Activity; to make changes to the program whenever the Company deems it necessary for the comfort, convenience, or safety of the Students.
I understand that I must report any disability requiring special attention at the time the reservation is made. YogaWorks will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the special needs of disabled participants, but is not responsible in the event it is unable to do so nor responsible for any denial of services by air carriers, hotels, partners, or other independent suppliers. Some locations and most activities require standing, sitting or walking, sometimes on unpaved or cobblestone streets for numerous hours each day. YogaWorks is not responsible for any missed activities due to a participant’s inability to participate with the group. Most transportation services and venues are not equipped with wheelchair ramps. YogaWorks will endeavor to accommodate the special requests of Students, including (without limitation) dietary and accommodation requests, but such requests do not form part of these Terms or the contract between Student and YogaWorks and YogaWorks is not liable for any failure to accommodate or fulfill such requests.
2. CLIENT AGE REQUIREMENT
I understand that I must be at least 18 years old to take the teacher training.
YogaWorks reserves the right to change, alter, or amend the daily itinerary/curriculum for each training at any time. Changes can be made for various reasons including changes in location or online and/ or teacher/trainer. Any partner locations listed on each training are intended to be used for that training; however venues are not guaranteed. YogaWorks reserves the right to substitute other venues, as needed. No refunds or discounts are provided for venue changes. The YogaWorks Teacher Training Department will make its best efforts to communicate these changes to me as soon as they can.
4. PRICING, DEPOSITS AND CANCELLATION POLICY
A 200 euro deposit is due upon enrollment to hold my spot. My payment plan will be arranged upon registration. Full payment is required by the last weekend of the training. If i cancel before the start of the program or do not attend the program, tuition fees will be refunded but YogaWorks will hold back 10% of the program tuition as penalty clause. If I cancel for any reason during the program (and not for medical issues) tuition fees will be refunded for the classes I will not attend and YogaWorks will hold back 10% as penalty clause.
5. ATTENDANCE and TARDY POLICY
I understand I am required to complete all of the in class hours of my training, and to make up any missed time in accordance with the YogaWorks Make Up Policy*. I understand that all missed time needs to be completed within one year of the program end date and that if I do not complete the missed hours in this time frame I will be required to pay in full to retake the training.
I understand that if I miss over 27 hours, I will receive a non-passing status and will be asked to leave the training. Under such circumstances I understand I will be required to pay in full to retake the training.
I understand that if I am 15 minutes late more than twice, on the third occasion of tardiness I will be asked to leave and will be required to make up the day according to the makeup policy. If I leave 15 minutes early more than twice the third occasion, I will be asked to leave and required to make up the day according to the Makeup Policy*. On the rare occasions when YogaWorks needs to cancel a training, a refund will be provided, however, YogaWorks is not responsible for any costs incurred for travel arrangements or accommodations related to any event. It is your responsibility to purchase travel insurance to protect yourself from any loss due to program cancellations, changes or weather delays. We will not, under any circumstance, reimburse you for airfare or ground transfer expenses.
6. *CLASS MAKE UP POLICY
Make Up Option 1: Schedule a private session with your trainer at some point during the program. The cost of a private session ranges from 100-150 euro per hour
1-hour private = 1-4 hours of missed time
1.5 hour private = 5-6 hours of missed time
2-hour private = 7-8 hours of missed time
2.5 hour private = 9-10 hours of missed time
3 hour private =11-13 hours of missed time
Please note: Only two sessions of private instruction, regardless of hours, are allowable and are subject to trainer availability. The remainder of your missed time will need to be made up in a future training (see Make Up option 2 below). Private make up sessions are only an option during your current training and are not an option once the program is complete.
Make Up Option 2: You can attend the days you missed in an upcoming training of the same format, free of charge. If the training you choose to do your make up in is sold out, you will need to wait for a future training with space available to complete your make up.
If you miss more than 27 hours or more than a year passes without making up your missed hours: You will be required to pay in full to retake the training
All Make ups in upcoming trainings need to be pre-approved and coordinated via the YogaWorks Teacher Training Department.
Please note that you can only make up your time in a future program in the same format you
completed (Weekend or Intensive). This is because the content of these two formats are structured differently, causing you not to be able to just “drop in” to complete your make up.
