YOGA TEACHER TRAINING (YTT) POLICES
Despite the careful application process to ensure students are suitable for the course, policies are in place for occasions where it may be necessary for a student to withdraw, or where a payment agreement is not fulfilled. Once a suitable applicant has been offered a place into the course, they will be required to pay:
- A non-refundable deposit
- A non-refundable enrolment and materials fee
- A course fee which may be at an early bird course price if made by the date details in the prospectus.
If a student fails to pay the enrolment and materials fee within 14 days of offer of a place, we have the right to cancel the offer of a place in the course.
If a student fails to pay the course fee, via upfront payment or direct debit agreement, 21 days prior to course commencement, we have the right to cancel the offer of a place in the course.
If a student withdraws from the course more than 21 days prior to course commencement, they will receive a refund of all course fees paid, minus the deposit and enrolment and materials fee.
If a student withdraws from the course within 21 days of course commencement, they will not be eligible for any refunds.
Once you sign up for a YTT, there is a level of commitment. Our commitment to you is to complete your certificate of training.
You may defer your training to another suitable time, year, if that is appropriate and there is a place in the next course, if you should become unwell which would mean you can’t attend. A medical certificate is required and is at the discretion and decision by the Live and Breathe Yoga management.
In the event of a pandemic, or world crisis you will be offered to complete online. Every reasonable effort will be made to assist you to complete your certificate. The course will run in the same way however face to face trainings will be live and online.
You must complete and participate in all the modules to complete your YTT certificate.
Teacher trainees are subject to the all Live and Breathe Yoga Polcies and Terms and Conditions and are expected to observe the values and practices of Live and Breathe Yoga. A Trainee may be removed from the course where they are unable to comply with the Terms and Conditions or align to the publicised values and practices. Prior to expulsion the trainee will be provided with verbal or written notice, informing them of the basis for the potential expulsion and provided with an opportunity to respond in writing or verbally. After review of the evidence, Live and Breathe Yoga will issue a decision whether to expel the trainee from the course, based on its reasonable judgment of the evidence presented to them.
Live and Breathe Yoga is not liable for any losses or damages a trainee may incur due to being removed from the course. Any decision resulting in expulsion or premature withdrawal from the course will result in the loss of all fees paid, and no reimbursement will be provided.
