I understand that the process of teacher training is rigorous and demanding of my time and effort. I understand the practice of yoga is about exploring new boundaries and limits. The study of yoga may involve exploring and discussing different belief systems, which may be different from my own. I understand that this is simply a presentation, not an expectation of any belief system. I understand that there will be time during each session to speak relevant thoughts, questions, feelings and insights. There will be co-listening and conscious communication which provides an opportunity for bonding with other students, nonjudgmental listening, and learning to develop rapport with others. A yoga practice is part of the curriculum for growth. I will monitor what is safe and right for me, and I will commit myself, to the best of my ability, to the teacher training program. CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY: i) REJECTION:
If an applicant rejected by the school prior the start of the training, he/she is entitled to a full refund of all monies paid, except the non-refundable application fee. ii) CANCELLATION PRIOR THE START DATE:

In case a refund is approved and requires currency conversion, the applicable exchange rate at time of refund will be used and not at the time of ordering and paying for the training.
