Terms of Service & 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.

If this is not a possibility, the Modules can be covered privately at a 300-600AED per hour rate, depending on the teacher.

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.
Class packages, which are booked in advance, are NON-refundable.
Individual appointments are scheduled in advance. Classes and consultations, which are cancelled within 24 hours of the appointment, will always be charged in full, regardless of the reason. In any other case, we always make an effort to accommodate your requests to reschedule.
Missed appointments are always charged in full, regardless of the reason.
Classes paid in advance have a validity for 3 months from the date of purchase.
In case of any unforeseen serious health issues of student and/or teacher, the classes will be refunded on a pro-rata basis.
Retreats and workshops

The remaining balance is due 30 days before the start of the retreat. If your booking is made within the 30 days before the start of the retreat, the total balance is due within 5 days after making your reservation.
In case you choose to cancel your participation in a retreat or workshop, the following refund policy applies to the balance of the fee:
Cancellation within 91 days or more refund, 40% of total value refundable
Cancellation within 90 days – 61 days refund, 30% of total value refundable
Cancellation within 60 days – 31 days, 15% of total value refundable
