Holistic Yoga School Policies For All RYT-200 & RYT-300 Teacher Trainers:
By enrolling in a Holistic Yoga School & Studio Program all participants agree to the Policies outlined below. Each participant has also acknowledged their understanding as a part of the Application & Registration Process.
Holiday Closures (no TTC classes on the following days): Labor Day Weekend, Halloween Evening, Thanksgiving (Weds – Fri), Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve & New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Easter, Memorial Day Weekend
HYS will follow suit and cancel TTC classes whenever the local school district cancels their classes. For evening and weekend programs, we will try to follow nearby college campus closures, or use our own discretion. If we incur snow days then additional training hours may need to be scheduled with the group.
When enrolling in a teacher training program, participants should plan to attend each full day and every class, except in the case of illness/emergency or if planned absences are approved and arranged in advance. Up to two (2) absences are allowed during the training program. For absences incurred beyond that amount, additional classes and/or private instruction may be required for course completion. Additional fees will apply.
Although highly discouraged to miss any classes, a planned absence can be arranged in advance if needed. If approved, make-up work will be provided to be completed in a timely manner. See the Make-up work section. Additional fees for group classes and/or private instruction may apply.
Please let us know that you will not be able to attend class by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 970-412-4114. Make-up work will be given to be completed in a timely manner. See Make-up work section. Additional fees for group classes and/or private instruction may apply.
In order to continue to progress in the teacher training program when classes are missed, participants must reach out to the HYS office to receive makeup assignments which may include homework assignments, attending other group classes ($10 – $15 per hour depending on the class), or private sessions ($60 per hour). Any private training will be scheduled with the HYS office based on teacher & student availability. All makeup work must be completed in a timely manner to stay on-track with the rest of the group.
It is the sole discretion of the HYS office to determine how makeup work shall be completed (i.e. at-home assignments, attendance at other classes, and/or private instruction).
Tardiness (applies to all classes):
A participant is considered tardy if they are not set-up and ready for class to begin at the scheduled start time.
Doors may be locked at the time that class is scheduled to begin. If any TTC participant is unable to attend class due to arriving late then they will be required to make-up any missed material as outlined in the policies above.
If a participant needs to cancel out of a full training then 30-days notice prior to the first date of the class is required to receive a refund less the $450 deposit (plus an additional $100 fee if you had a payment plan). For cancellations with less than 30-days notice, we will attempt to fill your spot in the course and if so then you will be refunded less the deposit / payment plan fee. For cancellations with less than 30-days notice, if we are not able to fill your spot in the training, then no refund will be issued.
A participant may elect to withdrawal their enrollment from the teacher training at any time. No refunds will be provided.
A $35 late fee will be applied for any incomplete or late payment. A participant on a payment plan who incurs more than two late payments may be terminated from the teacher training program. Any remaining balance owed will be billed at that time, due one month from the invoice date.
Termination from TTC:
May occur due to any of the following:
- Failure to complete program requirements; including but not limited to the successful completion of Practicums and demonstrated aptitude in the YA 13 competencies
- Multiple tardies, late-cancellations or no-shows
- More than 2 (two) late payments
- Inappropriate behavior / classroom etiquette
- Coming to class under the influence of substances
- Lack of participation in classes
- Too many absences/failure to complete assigned makeup work for absences
- Breach of “Yoga’s Code of Conduct” as described at the beginning of the TTC manual
In the event of TTC Termination, no refunds will be issued, and when applicable the participant will still be required to pay any remaining balance owed.
