Terms and Conditions

By booking a place on any Yogacampus Event or by being accepted onto a Yogacampus Diploma Course, you have agreed to the following terms and conditions.

Definitions

  • Yogacampus is an operating name of The Life Centre Education Limited (a company limited by guarantee). In these terms and conditions, on our website and social media feeds, and in all communications, ‘Yogacampus’, and words like ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’, mean The Life Centre Education Limited.
  • An ‘Event’ means any course or event described on our website under the heading ‘Specialist Training Courses’ or ‘Events and Continuing Professional Development’, whether delivered face to face, online (live), online (pre-recorded), or using any combination of any of these media.
  • A ‘Diploma Course’ means the Yogacampus Teacher Training Diploma or the Yogacampus Yoga Therapy Diploma.

Contractual Relationship

  • By booking a place on an Event or by being accepted onto a Diploma Course, you have entered into a contractual relationship with us. These terms and conditions (together with any other terms and conditions specific to the Event or Diploma Course published on our website and/or in any communication from us to you) form an integral part of that contract. If you make a booking for an Event on behalf of another person, you warrant to us that you have their authority to do so.
  • By booking a place on any Event or applying for acceptance onto a Diploma Course, you warrant that you meet, or will, by the start of the Event or Diploma Course, meet, any eligibility criteria for that Event or Diploma Course published on our website or in any other published material related to the Event or Diploma Course.
  • By booking a place on any Event or applying for acceptance onto a Diploma Course, you acknowledge that the full cost of that Event or Diploma Course becomes payable on booking or acceptance, notwithstanding that we may in our discretion agree to payment by instalments or on any other deferred or alternative basis.
  • We may change these terms and conditions from time to time and will publish those changed terms and conditions on our website. We have no responsibility to provide you with any other notice of such changes.
  • If any part of these terms and conditions, or any other part of the contract between us, is deemed unenforceable, that part shall be severed from the remainder, which shall remain in full force and effect.

Cancellation

  • If, having booked a place on an Event, or having been accepted onto a Diploma Course, you fail to participate in all or any part of that Event or Diploma Course, we shall have no obligation to refund any amount paid by you in respect of that Event or Diploma Course, unless you have given us notice of cancellation before the start of the Event or Diploma Course, in which event the provisions below shall apply.
  • You may cancel your booking for an Event so long as you do so in writing at least 30 days before the start of the Event. In that case, we will refund you in sterling the amount you have paid us in respect of that Event, less an administration fee of 10% of the price of the Event or £20, whichever is the greater, subject to a maximum administration fee of £50. If you cancel fewer than 30 days before the start of the Event there will be no refund, unless we are able to transfer your booking to another participant, in which case we will refund you in sterling the amount you have paid us in respect of that Event, less an administration fee calculated as set out above. We shall not be responsible for any expenses which you may incur or have incurred in respect of the Event, for example in respect of travel or accommodation or any exchange rate losses.
  • You may cancel your place on a Diploma Course so long as you do so in writing at least 60 days before the start of the Diploma Course. In that case, we will refund you in sterling the amount you have paid us in respect of that Diploma Course, less an administration fee of £100. If you cancel fewer than 60 days before the start of the Diploma Course, there will be no refund unless we are able to replace you with another candidate whom we consider suitable to participate in that Diploma Course, in which case we will refund you in sterling the amount you have paid us in respect of the Diploma Course, less an administration fee of £100. We shall not be responsible for any expenses which you may incur or have incurred in respect of the Diploma Course, for example in respect of travel or accommodation or any exchange rate losses.
  • Once accepted on a Diploma Course, should you decide to defer your place or withdraw from that course before its conclusion, you agree to settle any outstanding course fees, including any unpaid future monthly instalments, on our first demand. We shall not be responsible for any expenses which you may incur or have incurred in respect of the Diploma Course, for example in respect of travel or accommodation or any exchange rate losses. We will however work with you to organise a deferral to a later course should your personal circumstances require this and a suitable later course be available.
  • We reserve the right to cancel or curtail all or part of any Event or Diploma Course for any reason, though we will endeavour only to do so in the event of exceptional circumstances which mean that we are unable to offer, or continue to offer, the Event or Diploma Course as advertised, or if there are, in our opinion, insufficient numbers booked onto the Event or accepted onto the Diploma Course for it to be commercially viable. Should this happen, we will notify you promptly and will refund you in sterling the full amount you have paid us in respect of the Event or Diploma Course and you will have no liability in respect of any payments in respect of that Event or Diploma Course falling due after we give you notice of cancellation. We shall not be responsible for any expenses which you may incur or have incurred in respect of the Event or Diploma Course, for example in respect of travel or accommodation or any exchange rate losses.
  • If you choose to cancel or curtail your participation in an Event or Diploma Course, or if we cancel or curtail an Event or Diploma Course, or if we exclude you from participation or further participation in any Event or Diploma Course in accordance with these terms and conditions, our liability to you shall be limited to a refund as specified above. We shall not be responsible for any expenses which you may incur or have incurred in respect of the Event or Diploma Course, for example in respect of travel or accommodation or any exchange rate losses.

Release of Liability

By booking to participate in an Event, or on acceptance onto a Diploma Course, you agree that:

  • we are not responsible for the safekeeping of your personal belongings during your participation in the Event or Diploma Course;
  • elements of certain Events and of the Diploma Courses may be physically strenuous and you participate in them voluntarily, understanding that there is risk of personal injury;
  • It is your responsibility to inform the teacher(s) of the Event or the Diploma Course if you have any injuries or health conditions (including pregnancy, suspected pregnancy, or childbirth within the preceding three months) and to abide by their decision as to whether all or any part of that Event or Diploma Course is appropriate for you.

If you are participating in the Event or Diploma Course via the internet:

  • we are not responsible for any physical injury or any loss of, or damage to, any personal property incurred during or as a result of your participation (save only to the extent that liability in respect of such loss or damage may not be excluded or limited by law);
  • we have no liability in respect of any failure, weakness, or corruption of the internet, or of any internet connection, which may limit your ability to participate;
  • we make no warranty as to the functionality of any third party platform used in connection with the Event or Diploma Course, nor as to whether such third party platform is secure or free from infection, viruses, or other contamination.

We shall not in any circumstances be liable for:

  • any economic losses (including, without limitation, loss of revenue, profits, contracts, business or anticipated savings);
  • any loss of goodwill or reputation; or
  • any special or indirect losses

which you may suffer or incur arising out of your participation in any Event or Diploma Course, any cancellation, postponement, or curtailment of any Event or Diploma Course, or in the event of your participation in an Event or Diploma Course being refused or restricted.

Neither you nor your heirs, assigns or legal representatives will sue or make any other claim of any kind against Yogacampus, its employees or agents, or against the teacher(s) of any Event or Diploma Course, in respect of any loss or damage which you may suffer or incur or as a result of participating in that Event or Diploma Course, whether caused by negligence or otherwise, save only to the extent that liability in respect of such loss or damage may not be excluded or limited by law.

Restriction of Participation

We reserve the right to exclude you from participation, or further participation, in an Event or a Diploma Course if, either in our opinion, or in the opinion of any teacher of the Event or Diploma Course:

  • you do not meet any of the eligibility criteria stipulated for the Event or Diploma Course on our website, or in any other published material related to the Event or Diploma Course;
  • you are in breach of any of these terms and conditions, or any other terms and conditions specific to the Event or Diploma Course published on our website and/or in any communication from us to you;
  • you engage in abusive or threatening behaviour, or language of a profane or discriminatory nature, during your participation in any Event or Diploma Course, or in any communication with any of our staff or teachers;
  • your behaviour as a participant in any Event or Diploma Course is disruptive to your fellow participants;
  • you do anything which may reasonably be considered to bring Yogacampus or any of the teachers of any Event or Diploma Course into disrepute; or
  • (if the Event is delivered wholly or partly in a face to face setting) you show symptoms or signs of any infectious or contagious medical condition.

We also reserve the right to exclude anyone engaging in abusive, threatening, or disruptive behaviour, or language of a profane or discriminatory nature, or doing anything which may reasonably be considered to bring Yogacampus or any of the teachers of any Event or Diploma Course into disrepute, from participation in any future Event or Diploma Course.

If you are excluded from participation or further participation in any Event or Diploma Course, any refund of any amounts paid will be in the absolute discretion of Yogacampus.
