TRAINING/MBF CONFERENCE REGISTRATION POLICIES

Due to travel and shipping logistics, YogaFit must confirm or cancel trainings 3 weeks prior to the start date. Therefore, customers canceling with less than 14 days’ notice are NOT entitled to a refund. The options are:

2) Receive a Credit on File to apply toward any future teacher training, with a $50.00 transfer fee. (In case of emergency, exceptions can be made. Please contact Customer Service. A Doctor's note may be requested). Once the credit has been redeemed and an additional cancellation/transfer is made, the money will be placed as another credit on file, cannot be refunded, and an additional $50 fee will apply.
Trainees requesting to transfer to another course at any time will incur a $50.00 transfer fee. Current training rates will apply.
Once a discount code or early bird rate has expired, it will not carry over when transferring to a different training or conference.
Customers not attending a training and failing to contact YogaFit® in advance (i.e.: “no-shows”) will forfeit all registration fees and no refund/credit will be issued.
