  1. Training Etiquette

We will inform the teacher and arrange a suitable time for hours to be made up, or send appropriate homework for you to complete.

  1. Cancellation policy

We think that it is extremely unlikely that a student will begin the course and subsequently decide not to continue until graduation, however, we understand that in some circumstances this is not possible and students have no choice other than to leave. In this instance we will be unable to give you a certificate of graduation from the training. Please note your course fees are still due unless an exemption applies. If you feel for any reason unable to continue with the course you should e-mail YTT@yogarise.london as soon as possible.

  • continue your yoga studies and personal practice on a regular basis;
  • not to discriminate on grounds of race, religion, gender, age or sexual orientation;
