DEPOSIT | PAYMENT | CANCELLATION POLICY
To reserve your spot on a Mindful Balance Yoga Retreat, please make a $500 deposit. The deposit is non-refundable – however should you cancel your reservation 90 days or more before the start of the retreat, you may transfer your deposit to a friend OR you may apply your deposit toward another Mindful Balance Yoga Retreat occurring within 12 months from the date of the initial retreat that you registered for.
FULL PAYMENT (WITHIN 90 DAYS OF RETREAT)
When you reserve, you may either pay in full or pay the deposit (payment plans can be discussed if needed). Upon receipt of your payment we will send you a confirmation of your deposit. Full payment is due 90 days prior to the start date of the yoga retreat.
Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays, pregnancy, job conflict or illness. If you cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but we have costs already incurred when reserving retreat centers and hotels. We have designed our cancellation policy to be as compassionate as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.
IF YOU CANCEL THE RETREAT:
90 days or more prior to the start of the retreat, your deposit is transferable and non-refundable. You may transfer the deposit to a friend or apply it toward another Mindful Balance Retreat within 12 months. 31-90 days prior to the start of the retreat, you receive: 50% credit of the cost of the full retreat toward another Mindful Balance Retreat within 12 months, and will forfeit the remainder. 0-30 days prior to the start of the yoga retreat, you receive: no refunds or credits will be given. To cancel, you must send an email stating that you wish to cancel to: firstname.lastname@example.org
IF WE CANCEL THE YOGA RETREAT:
If we must cancel a trip due too few participants, we will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. We cannot however compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred. In the unlikely event that Mindful Balance Yoga Retreats must cancel a yoga retreat due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, we cannot guarantee a refund – it will be depending on receiving a refund from the venue / tour operator we work with. To cover these risks, we highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.
The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase trip insurance. Travel Insurance can protect you in case:
you cancel your participation in the yoga retreat
retreat is cancelled due to weather, natural disaster, or not enough
participants to run the trip
medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured
We recommend TRAVELGUARD, which offers a variety of travel insurances, including the option for a comprehensive “cancel for any reason” policy. If you cancel your retreat – for any reason – your airfare, hotel, retreat costs, etc. up until 48 hours prior to travel, will be covered. This comprehensive package is called the “Gold Package Cancel for Any Reason Policy”. You must contact Travelguard and purchase the policy within 15 days of buying your airline tickets or incurring any costs for any part of your travel. You can also just insure your air tickets. Travelguard can give you quotes for each scenario.
