Term & Condition
Sukma Yoga’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program is accredited by Yoga Alliance.
We require that you have a minimum of 6 months of a consistent yoga practice before enrolling in our teacher training program. We want to make sure that trainees have a basic foundation in the primary yoga postures.
The 2020 Pandemic was an unprecedented global disaster which affected everyone around the world in almost every facet of life. Running a yoga teacher training is an event which requires us to invest time and money months before the actual course begins. Anytime one makes the decision to book a course that requires flights and accommodation there is a risk that unforeseen circumstances can delay or cancel the course. Learning from the experience with COVID which caused last-minute cancellations of a fully booked yoga training, made our terms and conditions to reflect what we feel is the safest way to protect your investment so that we all can feel comfortable making future plans and commitments.
Please take your time and read through each of our points and do not hesitate to email us for further questions. We want you to feel safe when you book a course with us, and we do not want you to lose your investment. We must also protect ourselves from any potential loss that can arise from events out of our control. In order for both parties to move forward feeling confident in booking a destination yoga teacher training we now make travel insurance and International Health insurance MANDATORY.
You need trip insurance to protect your investment against things that are out of your control.
Things come up! Pandemics, life factors, job conflicts, natural disasters, inclement weather, etc.
You as the guest assume all financial risk after final billing.
The best way to protect your investment is to buy a comprehensive CANCEL FOR ANY REASON trip insurance policy.
