COVID 19 UPDATED CLIENT POLICY
In these Terms and Conditions, ‘you’, ‘your’ and ‘attendee’ refers to any person(s) named on the registration form (and anyone added at a later date) and ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’ refers to Yoga 4 Love.
Removing Partial Refunds:
Upon feedback from our Tema Y4L, the tiered cancellation penalties segment of our Change/Cancellation policy was not sensitive nor reflective of these current times. In replacement of the cancellation penalties will be a full ‘credit’ refund to be used toward a future reservation.
Removing Tied Number of Days to Cancel:
The tiered number of days made it additionally stressful to know when to make this difficult decision. Since booking retreats and booking flight habits have changed so drastically we have eliminated the tiered number of days and instead a 60 day mark to “see how things are”.
At 60 days before event:
Yoga 4 Love Inner Goddess Retreats, Inc. will reassess the current travel restriction* situation and make a decision at that time if modifying dates needs to be considered/is necessary.
A representative from Yoga 4 Love Inner Goddess Retreats may reach out, via email, to the ‘point of contact’ if we feel a discussion about modifying dates need to be considered. If you have not heard from a Yoga 4 Love Inner Goddess Retreats representative, it is your responsibility to contact Yoga 4 Love Inner Goddess Retreats inquiring about the current status of your event dates and if date modification is an option/necessary.
If Yoga 4 Love Inner Goddess Retreats is in agreement that date modification is necessary due to most current travel restrictions*, 100% of your current deposits/payment will be made available as a credit towards a future reservation.
Starting the day the current travel restrictions are released, the credits will be available for 12 months.
60 days or more before event:
Choosing to cancel or make any date changes in bookings will be considered as a cancellation of those dates.
50% of deposits to date will be applied as an admin fee.
50% of deposits to date will be transferred as available credits to a new reservation – if the dates can be filled.
However, if travel restrictions* are imposed, then 100% of deposits will instead be made available as a credit for a future reservation.
Starting the day the current travel restrictions are released, the credits will be available for 12 months.
Exceptions will always be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
