Program Expectations, Attendance Policy & Make-up
Upon acceptance into the program, you will complete ALL training hours as scheduled in order to receive your certificate of completion. The scheduled training weekends are incredibly important, not only for your learning but also for the Yoga Alliance requirements of successful completion of 270 hours of contact time with instructors and 30 hours of non-contact time.
Each student will also be held to a high standard of conduct, demonstrating respect for their peers and maintaining confidentiality for each person in the training. Failure to attend all required hours, or failure to complete all required work, means you will not receive a certificate of completion and not be eligible for the 300 hour Yoga Alliance RYT certification.
If you miss a session, you will be permitted to make up a maximum of five hours through extra reading and/or class observation. If you miss more than five hours of training you will have to pay $75 per hour for private instruction to make up the hours.
Cancellation, Withdrawal & Refund
No refunds are given. A credit may be applied to future trainings, but only in the case of illness or extreme circumstances.
