Terms of Service & Disclaimer

Disclaimer:

The Term “Therapeutics” is used to indicate that our organization uses the ancient practices of Yoga in order to improve posture, align the spine, create more body awareness, breath awareness, concentration and increase Self knowledge. By no means does this mean that we are able to diagnose, treat or cure any advanced state diseases or emotional disorders. Yoga and meditation have been proven to improve life quality when practiced regularly, and we purely transmit the ancient teachings of Yoga practice as passed on to us by the Yoga Masters of their time.

Student Information & Terms

Kaya Yoga will not be held responsible for any injury or damage- physical or otherwise to people or property- resulting from attending and doing the course.

If at any time or event, the student feels discomfort or pain, he or she should gently come out of the posture and take a rest.

Yoga is not about achieving different postures, but rather about connecting mind and body. Kaya Yoga’s teaching is about listening to your body and respecting and accepting it at all times- abilities as well as limitations. Please talk to the teacher if you feel discomfort.

The student should understand and accept that Kaya Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, evaluation, diagnosis, or treatment.

It is the student’s duty to seek prior medical advice and medical approval in case of any particular injuries or health problems before attending the course, as well as informing the teacher about any medical condition before the start of any class.

In addition, it is also the student’s responsibility to not push his or her body to the extent of pain, strain, or injury.

All modules are required to be attended to obtain enough hours for certification.

If one should miss a day or modules because of pre-planned activities, he/she is responsible in communicating this early at the beginning of the year. He/she must provide the dates of the modules that will be missed and these hours will be covered free of cost in another teacher training program.

However, should one fail to inform or communicate these early at the beginning of the year, Modules will be charged at a 500AED per day or 1500AED per weekend. If this is not a possibility, the Modules can be covered privately at a 500AED per hour rate.

Certification Policy for Teacher Trainings

Kaya Yoga FZ LLC retains the right to deny certification. If the level of knowledge or performance is not in accordance with the Yoga Alliance Standards, the student will not be awarded with a certificate.

Cancellation Policy


Teacher Training Programs

Kaya Yoga has a no refund policy. Tuition for a teacher training or live program is paid in exchange for enrollment in that program. We limit attendance and use tuition to cover the costs of program delivery and to plan and prepare for our students who have committed to coming. If you pay a deposit to hold your space, you are agreeing that you will pay the remainder of your tuition in accordance with the payment plan you register for regardless of whether you attend the program, as that deposit is paid in exchange for “holding your space” and may serve to deny another student the chance to participate. Accordingly, all tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable. This policy is effective immediately upon registration. Out of fairness to all of our students, we do not make exceptions to our no-refund policy, and we must remain consistent.

Should you encounter an emergency or have an unexpected scheduling change and there is space in a class that better fits your schedule, we will attempt to transfer you into a different program. Although we are not obligated to provide credit, in some extenuating instances, we may offer you a credit to be used in connection with another like program of our choice. If we do offer you a credit we ask that you use it within one year of its issuance.

You are obliged to pay the rest of the course tuition. With signing up you have agreed to paying the full course fee.
