DISMISSAL POLICY: 

Full Circle Yoga School is a top rated school that has graduated hundreds of students in its evolution. We go above and beyond in our yoga teacher trainings. Our immersions naturally bring up past trauma and buried emotions. We are here to help you and support you on your journey in becoming a yoga teacher. Please note that there is a difference between communicating questions, course concerns, and your personal needs in a compassionate, solution-oriented way as compared to bringing these same situations to us with negativity, confrontation, speaking negatively to us or complaining to or in front of fellow students. The latter will not be tolerated. If a situation were to arise in which a facilitator feels a student is being disrespectful, rude, or complaint-oriented, a private meeting will be scheduled with the student and facilitator team to remedy the situation with a solution. If after the meeting the facilitator team continues to witness the same student having discord within the training or making fellow students uncomfortable, the Lead Facilitator has the right to ask the student to leave the training immediately forfeiting graduation without refund. 

All of the following, if violated are all grounds for dismissal without refund and forfeiting graduation: 

  • Drinking alcohol which is prohibited during your entire training. This includes evenings when you are off. 
  • Absolutely no intimate contact with any other students, or outside guests if you are staying in the student house during training : in form of sleeping together or sexual relations. If you find yourself attracted to someone romantically it must wait until after graduation. This includes leaving student house property to stay with others, you must have overnight visits approved by facilitators. House curfew is 10pm. 
  • No smoking of any kind on or in studio or student house property. 
  • Browsing the internet, texting, etc during training hours and classes is not permitted, this will not be tolerated as your teachers work hard to offer the curriculum that is at hand. Please be present and connected to your studies. 
  • No laying down or sleeping during class time, this will not be tolerated. 
  • Be on time. Being late will lead to extra classes and make up time that will have to be made up outside of an already packed day. Lateness immediately puts your graduation in jeopardy. ● Keep the foods you have in your bungalow healthy and clean. Although we don’t require a certain diet or monitor students' food intake, we recommend following the diet recommendations in your welcome letter.
