COVID-19 Updates effective June 1st 2020
We are monitoring the news of coronavirus (COVID-19) very carefully. We are and will continue to follow recommendations from the WHO and the CDC.
We realize this is an unpredictable and challenging time; your peace of mind is our highest priority. While many individuals wish to obtain their 300-hour certification at this time, we understand the need for flexibility and additional assurances when making travel plans.
Attendees can safely register after April 1st 2020 for any 2021 advanced 300-hour yoga teacher training immersion knowing that, should COVID 19 be a threat to travel in 2021, they may cancel and receive a refund without penalty. Payment plans must be arranged within 30 days of placing a deposit to secure a space in the training.
Your space in a training will be reserved when you pay the full total or a $300 deposit, with the remainder due within 30 days. Balances not paid within 30 days may be set up on a payment plan for an additional $200. We are able to work with you to potentially waive payment plan fees upon agreement. Full payment is due prior to the start date of the program, with few exceptions, and any unpaid balance will delay approval for Yoga Alliance certification.
If you start the program, you will be responsible for paying in full regardless of whether or not you finish the program.
Students may request to transfer to another training in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tuition is non-refundable less than 90 days from the start of the training, however, it is fully transferable to a future course within 18 months of the original program date. If the transfer occurs less than 90 days prior to the start date, there will be a $300 fee. Room and board fees vary from training to training and the difference may need to be covered.
Sometimes life happens, and you need to cancel your trip or return home early. If you submit a cancellation in writing more than 90 days prior to the start date, we can refund your full tuition minus the $300 deposit and any credit card fees incurred. If you submit a cancellation in writing less than 90 days prior to the start date, we are unable to offer refunds. No refunds will be given if you choose not to attend or leave your course early. Travel insurance helps protect against last-minute cancellation, trip interruption and to cover medical treatment or emergency medical evacuation during your trip. We strongly recommend you purchase trip protection in advance of your trip. Look for a CFAR (cancel for any reason) policy.

Indra Yoga Institute reserves the right to cancel any program at any time. In this event, you will be given a full credit towards another program with Indra Yoga Institute, valid for 18 months from the cancellation. In the event that a natural disaster, catastrophe or circumstances beyond our control that cause a program to be moved or otherwise changed, Indra Yoga Institute will do everything possible to provide adequate substitutions for attendance in a future course.
Indra Yoga Institute Code Of Ethics
As a student or facilitator of Indra Yoga Institute you have the right to be here, no matter your race, faith, gender, or orientation. You have the right to practice in an environment free of harassment. You determine if, when and how anyone touches you. You commit to holding that same safe space for your Indra family. Together we raise the sacred consciousness of our tribe and carry that energy back home to our own communities. Failure to uphold these commitments will result in dismissal from the training and prevent you from completing the graduation requirements.
As per Yoga Alliance standards, students must complete 300 hours of coursework in order to obtain certification. Of the 300 hours, 270 hours must be Contact Hours, or hours completed in the presence of an instructor. 80 of the 270 Contact Hours are assigned to specific Educational Categories. The remaining 190 Contact Hours are distributed amongst various Educational Categories based on your training’s focus. (Exceptions are made due to COVID-19 allowing online Yoga Alliance approved certification without contact hours through September 30th, 2020)
