Waiver and Cancellation Policy
I understand if there are not enough registrants for my chosen location, I may transfer to another location. If I am unable to attend in another location SOYA will refund my money in full.
I understand there is a cancellation fee of $650.00 + applicable taxes should I decide to withdraw prior to the commencement of the program, which includes course fees and my books and manual.
I understand if a non-refundable deposit has been paid on my behalf for meals or accommodations at a retreat centre where the training is held, this will also be deducted from my refund (in addition to the $650.00 + applicable taxes as noted above).
I understand that no refunds will be given should I withdraw after the program commences.
I understand that each online lesson takes approximately 2-4 hours to complete, and is required to be completed prior to each teacher training session.
I understand I am required to attend all teacher training sessions for the duration of the program. Any missed sessions must be made up at my own expense with SOYA faculty in order to meet the Yoga Alliance requirement for contact hours and certification, as outlined in my Teacher Training Manual and under the Attendance Policy.
Upon entry into these study programs, I agree not to copy or adapt these lessons/materials in any way for use outside of the SOYA program without permission from SOYA.
I understand that upon registration I will receive SOYA’s monthly enews and I may unsubscribe at any time.
I acknowledge that I understand Yoga is not a medical procedure and the Yoga Teacher will not be providing a diagnosis of any medical problems or concerns, which I may have. I understand Yoga is a process of integration intended to facilitate wholeness, body-awareness and self-awareness. I understand that I am solely responsible for my health, safety and well-being. I agree that I will inform the Yoga Teachers of any health concerns I have. I will also inform the Yoga Teachers of any activity or movement which I cannot safely perform, and that I will not perform any activity or movement which I feel is likely to cause me to injure myself. I agree to hold the Yoga Teacher and the South Okanagan Yoga Academy harmless from any and all responsibility for any injury which I may sustain during or as a result of my Yoga sessions.
