These Terms and Conditions apply to all Yoga Activities (see definition below) purchased from Wild Mountain Yoga Center(“Wild Mountain Yoga” “Wild Mountain Yoga Center” or “Company”) and govern the contractual relationship between you (“You”, “I” or “Student”) and Wild Mountain Yoga Center with respect to any such Activities.
I understand that if I am paid in full and fulfill all the requirements of the Wild Mountain Yoga Teacher Training, including in-class hours, final practice teach, homework, quizzes and passing both the written and in-class final exams, I will receive a letter of completion and certification, within 1 month from the program end date, which can be submitted to the Yoga Alliance or a prospective employer as evidence that I have completed a 200-hour Teacher Training program. Paying for the program and completing the hours alone does not mean I will pass the program. Final tests are due within 30-days of the final day of training.
I understand that Wild Mountain Yoga requires me to have a minimum of 6 months of consistent yoga practice before enrolling in this training and that Wild Mountain Yoga reserves the right at any time to ask me to leave the training if the instructor feels that I pose a risk to the physical safety to the instructor or other students or if I am compromising the learning process of the group. Under such circumstances, I understand I will be given a prorated refund, based on the amount of time I have attended in the training.
I understand that Wild Mountain Yoga reserves the right to ask me to leave the program if I am found plagiarizing, if my behavior is disruptive, inappropriate, negatively impacting other students learning, unethical or violates the Yoga Alliance ethical guidelines. Under such circumstances, I understand I will not be refunded any part of my tuition.
I understand that Students are responsible for assessing their own suitability and capability to participate in a Program. All Students should consult their physician regarding their physical fitness level, mental status and any other special conditions they may be working with. It is the Student’s responsibility to assess the risks and requirements of each Program.
I understand that by registering for a Wild Mountain Yoga program, I certify that I understand that the Company reserves the right to accept or reject any Student as a participant; to expel any participant from the Activity; to make changes to the program whenever the Company deems it necessary for the comfort, convenience, or safety of the Students.
I understand that I must report any disability requiring special attention at the time the reservation is made. Wild Mountain Yoga will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the special needs of disabled participants, but is not responsible in the event it is unable to do so nor responsible for any denial of services by air carriers, hotels, partners, or other independent suppliers. Some locations and most activities require standing, sitting or walking, sometimes on unpaved or cobblestone streets for numerous hours each day. Wild Mountain Yoga is not responsible for any missed activities due to a participant’s inability to participate with the group. Most transportation services and venues are not equipped with wheelchair ramps. Wild Mountain Yoga will endeavor to accommodate the special requests of Students, including (without limitation) dietary and accommodation requests, but such requests do not form part of these Terms or the contract between Student and Wild Mountain Yoga and Wild Mountain Yoga is not liable for any failure to accommodate or fulfill such requests.

Changes can be made for various reasons including changes in location or teacher/trainer. Any partner locations listed on each training are intended to be used for that training; however venues are not guaranteed. Wild Mountain Yoga reserves the right to substitute other venues, as needed. No refunds are provided for venue changes; full cancellation penalties as stated below continue to apply. The Wild Mountain Yoga Teacher Training Department will make its best efforts to communicate these changes to me as soon as they can.

Release and Waiver of Liability; Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement
I understand that Wild Mountain Yoga, Inc. is here to serve me by sharing knowledge of yoga and health and any related activities to promote exercise and good health (“Yoga Activities”). In connection with my participation in the Yoga Activities, I understand, acknowledge and agree as follows:
Participation in the Yoga Activities is completely voluntary and it is solely my decision to participate in such activities.
The practice of yoga involves physical movement and exercise which may from time to time be strenuous, and that such practice carries some risk of injury. I am qualified, in good health and in proper physical condition to participate in the Yoga Activities. I understand that I must judge my own capabilities with respect to practicing yoga at Wild Mountain Yoga and will only participate in the appropriate level of classes that are within my limits and capabilities. I acknowledge that it is my sole responsibility to confirm that there is no medical or other reason preventing me from participating in the Yoga Activities. If I am pregnant, I shall only participate in the Yoga Activities after I have discussed the potential risks with my obstetrician. I shall follow my obstetrician’s advice and instructions about whether and to what extent I can participate in the Yoga Activities. I agree that I (and my spouse/partner, heirs, and guardians) will hold Releasees harmless for any possible injury to myself, my spouse/partner, heirs, guardians and/or my child/fetus.
If I believe any conditions are unsafe, I will immediately discontinue participation in the Yoga Activities.
It is my responsibility to inform the instructor immediately if an injury occurs in connection with the Yoga Activities.
From time to time during Yoga Activities, instructors may physically adjust a student’s form. If I do not want such physical adjustments, I will inform the instructor at the beginning of each session that I attend. I also acknowledge that if I do wish to receive such physical adjustments, it is my responsibility to inform the instructor when I believe an adjustment has gone as far as I desire at that time.
That participation in Yoga Activities involves risks of serious bodily injury and possibly death, which may be caused by my own actions or inactions or those of others participating in the Yoga Activities. I am voluntarily participating in the Yoga Activities with full knowledge of the dangers involved and hereby agree to accept full responsibility for any/all injury or death, including without limitation, personal, bodily or mental injury, economic loss or any damage that I suffer resulting from the acts of anyone at, or acting on behalf of, Wild Mountain Yoga.
As consideration for my being permitted to participate in the Yoga Activities, I (and my spouse/partner, heirs, guardians, and legal representatives) release Wild Mountain Yoga, its parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates and assigns and each of their predecessor and successor organizations and each of their current and former principals, instructors, partners, officers, directors, employees, insurers, agents and representatives and the owners/lessors of the premises wherein the Yoga Activities take place (“Releasees”) from any and all liability and claims for damages arising out of, relating to and/or by reason of my voluntary decision to participate in the Yoga Activities including the use of any equipment or the facilities. I further agree that, I (and my spouse/partner, heirs, guardians and legal representatives) will not make a claim against, sue, or attach the property of Wild Mountain Yoga or Releasees for injury or damage resulting from the negligence, misconduct or other acts or omissions, howsoever caused, by any employee, agent, or contractor of Wild Mountain Yoga as a result of my participation in the Yoga Activities. If I, or anyone acting on my behalf, make a claim against any of the Releasees, I will indemnify, save and hold harmless each of the Releasees from any loss, liability, damage or costs which may incur as a result of such claim.
In connection with my participation in the Yoga Activities, I agree to abide by any reasonable rules and policies of Wild Mountain Yoga.
Wild Mountain Yoga reserves the right to deny an individual’s participation in the Yoga Activities based upon legitimate reasons such as an individual’s failure to follow any specified procedures.
Memberships and class series are non-transferrable and registration fees and payment for tuition for classes are non-refundable.

It is recommended you have a minimum of three blank pages in your passport when traveling, as many countries require blank pages. It is your responsibility to verify all visa and passport requirements.
MEDICAL AUTHORIZATION AND COVERAGE
In the event Student becomes sufficiently incapacitated as to be unable to direct his or her own care and Wild Mountain Yoga is unable or does not have time to contact Student’s emergency contact, the Student, by registering and paying a deposit for a Wild Mountain Yoga program, authorizes any medical treatment deemed necessary in the event of any injury or illness while participating in the activity including, but not limited to, X-ray, examination, anesthetic, medical or surgical diagnosis, or treatment and hospital care which is deemed advisable by, and is to be rendered under the general or specific supervision of, any physician and/or surgeon licensed in the United States, or, if in a foreign country and no physician licensed to practice in the United States is reasonably available, by a duly licensed physician deemed competent to render the necessary care. In addition, the Student certifies that they have medical insurance which will cover personal accidents, medical expenses, medical evacuation, air ambulance, loss of effects, repatriation costs and all other expenses which might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay or inconvenience occurring to the Student, or that in the absence of this medical insurance coverage, the Student agrees to pay all costs of rescue and/or medical services as may be incurred on the Student’s behalf. Students should carry their insurance information while traveling. Some travel insurance policies offer international medical insurance, however it is the student’s responsibility to assess and acquire comprehensive medical coverage that is valid in the country you are traveling to.
For programs outside the United States, Wild Mountain Yoga does not provide direct medical advice on vaccinations and inoculations. Please visit the www.cdc.gov and discuss your travel plans with your physician prior to travel.

Wild Mountain Yoga IS NOT LIABLE FOR ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS
Wild Mountain Yoga makes arrangements with accommodation providers, activity providers, and other independent parties (“Third Party Suppliers”) to provide you with your program. Third Party Suppliers may also engage the services of local operators and/or sub-contractors for the provision of services that form part of the program. Although Wild Mountain Yoga takes all reasonable care in selecting Third Party Suppliers, Wild Mountain Yoga is unable to control Third Party Suppliers and do not supervise Third Party Suppliers and therefore cannot be responsible for their acts or omissions. The services provided are subject to the conditions imposed by these suppliers and their liability is limited by their tariffs, conditions of carriage, tickets and vouchers and international conventions and agreements that govern the provision of their services. These may limit or exclude liability of the supplier. Student acknowledges that Third Party Suppliers operate in compliance with the applicable laws of the countries in which they operate and Wild Mountain Yoga does not warrant that any Third Party Supplier is in compliance with the laws of the Client’s country of residence, or any other jurisdiction.
Wild Mountain Yoga IS NOT LIABLE AND WILL NOT ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY CLAIMS, LOSSES, DAMAGES, COSTS OR EXPENSES ARISING OUT OF INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OF ENJOYMENT, UPSET, DISAPPOINTMENT, DISTRESS OR FRUSTRATION, WHETHER PHYSICAL OR MENTAL, RESULTING FROM THE ACT OR OMISSION OF ANY PARTY OTHER THAN Wild Mountain Yoga AND ITS EMPLOYEES.
If the Student has a complaint, he/she should first inform Wild Mountain Yoga during the training/workshop so that Wild Mountain Yoga can attempt to rectify the matter. If the Student is still dissatisfied, he/she should submit the complaint in writing to Wild Mountain Yoga within 30 days of the completion of the program.
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, brochures, or any other literature concerning the program, or the breach thereof, including without limitation any claim related to illness, injury, or death, shall be subject to the following conditions: 1) the dispute will be governed by California law; 2) the parties agree that they will attempt in good faith to settle any and all disputes arising out of, under or in connection with this Agreement, including without limitation the validity, interpretation, performance and breach hereof, through a process of mediation in California under the supervision of a mutually agreed upon mediator; 3) in the event that mediation fails to settle such a dispute, the parties agree that they will proceed to arbitration in California using one arbitrator pursuant to the then existing rules of the American Arbitration Association; 4) the maximum amount of recovery to which a participant will be entitled under any and all circumstances will be the published tuition cost of the program with Wild Mountain Yoga. This Agreement to arbitrate does not waive or modify any liability release agreed by the Student. Arbitration against Wild Mountain Yoga must be commenced within one year following the date of vacation completion. Neither the Company nor any affiliate shall in any case be liable for other than compensatory damages, and you hereby waive any right to punitive damages.
No person, other than an authorized representative of Wild Mountain Yoga by a document in writing, is authorized to vary, add, or waive any term or condition, including any term or condition set forth in the preceding provisions.
