POLICIES & GUIDELINES

ATTENDANCE POLICY

Our program expects students to be on time for class, after breaks, and after lunch. Please let our faculty know if you will be late. 

Students are encouraged to have 100% attendance. In additional to the training schedule, participants are required to attend 3 prenatal yoga classes for observation.  Students are encouraged to review and practice the information that is provided in the training manual.  The review and practice will add some additional time, outside of the training schedule.  

We understand that students have important commitments outside of the classroom. Should extenuating circumstances impact attendance, students are permitted to miss class, provided they work with the program director to make up any missed hours. Students are responsible for rescheduling missed hours to make up any course material they have missed. 

If a student needs to miss any training session, he or she must speak to the program director before the beginning of the session. Each student is responsible for scheduling make-up time with the program director. Students must pay an additional cost for private make-up sessions with a teacher. 

A leave of absence from the program will be granted due to medical disability or other extraordinary circumstances at the discretion of the program director. In this case our refund policy will apply to unused tuition and the student must reapply for the next available session and pay the difference, if any, of any remaining tuition and/or any related administrative fees. If tuition is increased for the next available session, the student must pay the higher rate.

REFUND POLICY

An applicant who submits written notice of cancellation of the program more than three (3) business days after signing the training agreement, but two weeks before the program begins, is entitled to a full refund minus a $250 processing fee. 

There will be no refunds two weeks or lass from the start date of the program. If the applicant withdraws from the program for any reason after it starts, the applicant will be responsible for paying the full tuition, regardless of any partial payments that have been made to date. 

Special Cases 

In case a student needs to withdraw from the program due to illness, accident, death in the family, or other circumstances that make it impractical for the student to complete the course, the program will provide a reasonable and fair refund. 

Bad Conduct 

No refunds will be given if the program removes a student from the program for bad conduct. Bad conduct is violation of the Code of Conduct, harassment, bullying, or any other behavior that is inappropriate or disruptive to the welfare of the program or to fellow students.
