Terms and Conditions

#1 Residential Trainings & Retreats:

The terms and conditions below refer to any course, retreat or in person event that is either residential or non residential.


Participants agree that it is their responsibility to attend 100% of the course as required to receive the YACEP certification which is based on Yoga Alliance standards. 100% attendance includes the physical attendance of each participant but the full participation of the student within workshops and learning activities, with positive behaviour, leaning towards a yogic attitude overall.

Payment (Residential)

There are two payment options:
1) Payment in full upon booking
2) Payment in 2 or 3 transactions: 50% accounts for the deposit. The remaining payment is required at any time up until 60 days prior to the start date of the course. If full payment is not paid within 60 days before the course start date then your place shall be advertised as available.

Deposits (Residential)

50% of course investment is held as a deposit which secures your space. This is non-refundable under any circumstance and is used for course and venue preparations. Upon making a deposit you agree to these terms and conditions.

For late bookings (less than 60 days prior to the course start date) payment in full is required.

If you make a booking for another person you warrant to us that you have their permission to do so.

Investment in the courses that Shanti Atma Yoga provides are primarily for the content and educational benefit of the course. The venue and other facilities are added value to the course content for a holistic wellness experience while learning.


All residential “in person” training courses are being rescheduled to further dates. Courses are being postponed and not cancelled.
Due to the global pandemic having adverse effects all over the world, the new course schedule will be released at a time where the effects have decreased and the situation has settled. For this we kindly ask for your patience and understanding.

All in person course bookings will be automatically moved to the next available training and will be valid until 1st January, 2024. Depending on the global COVID-19 situation, this may be extended if necessary. If another date cannot be found then the online training shall suffice for the training booked. However, Shanti Atma Yoga strives to provide multiple dates and locations to assure that other dates can be found, COVID – 19 dependent. This provides opportunities to find another training to attend.

*Note: Please note that Shanti Atma Yoga runs training courses in many countries in the world, however this deferral does not apply to a course location change to Australia (unless already booked into an Australian training).

Training courses are being rescheduled due to the financial obligations that Shanti Atma Yoga is under with paying training fees forward for all costs needed to run the training courses.

Participants will receive all training content online of their respective training, to compensate for any inconvenience caused by COVID-19, and to suffice for the full training content of the service booked. This enables self development and Yin Yoga teacher training to continue. Online training content is identical to the content of residential trainings. Participants receive lifetime access to present content and future updated content on an online portal with personal log ins.

As a gesture of goodwill and compassion, an additional 50 hour Yin Yoga training will be issued to each participant free of charge, for all those who have paid in full for their training.

All financials for online training are subject to normal terms and conditions, unless specified otherwise.

Shanti Atma Yoga works globally, and has a social responsibility to abide by government law and regulations for safety and is not prepared to put anybody’s health at risk. The in person training courses will resume when it is safe to do so. Until then we please ask for your patience.

If in the event the effects of covid becoming damaging for Shanti Atma Yoga’s in person training then the in person portion of the school will close down and all bookings shall be automatically moved online. In this case, extra training shall be provided to compensate for the inconvenience. A total of 200 hour training shall be provided to suffice for the value of the accommodation. 

Booking & Activation Call

Upon application a 30 minute booking and activation call will be held (at a selected time and date) to discuss your experience, challenges and goals.

Currency Exchange

All courses will be a fixed rate in GBP (British Pound). If payment is being made from another currency the course fee will be applicable to the exchange rate per day of deposit payment and therefore fees in local currencies may fluctuate.


If paid in full – In person Residential Training Course:

Circumstances may include an event that is beyond the control of the company or any reason that the venue may have to cancel or reschedule. Events include illness of teacher trainers, cancellation of venue, low numbers in trainings, or any other unforeseen circumstance that makes the training not viable to be carried out. In the case of a cancelled or rescheduled event, Shanti Atma Yoga will:

A) Transfer your booking to a future course
B) Offer you the online course in the meantime so that training can still take place

If in any case of any force majeure event, then full payment will be transferred to another course date. However, Shanti Atma Yoga will not be held liable for any additional expenses which you may have incurred in respect to the event, for example travel, accommodation or exchange rate losses.

The course investment that is advertised should be fully received, without the deduction of transactional fees.

By booking a course and securing your place, with either a deposit or a full payment (for both residential and online training courses), you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.
