Full Circle Yoga School, Full Circle Wellness LLC, reserves the right to cancel a yoga teacher training program at any time. In the event that Full Circle Yoga School cancels a program due to COVID, natural disaster, lodging issues or other events FCYS will do everything in our power to provide adequate substitutions.

 

Cancellations made within 90 days of the program start date are subject to a full refund, minus the non-refundable deposit and incurred credit card fees. Cancellations made by students within the 90 day window must be done so in writing to accounts@fullcircleyogaschool.com. For cancellations less than 90 days out from the program start date, no refunds will be given. 

 

Full Circle Yoga School IS able to offer a partial program in person completion as a hybrid training and students can finish their training through our online program in the event of extenuating circumstances. No credit or refund will be given if you do not show up for a program. If you leave a program early for any reason we will address on a case by case scenario and do our best to help you complete your training through our online certified program, however, there will be no lodging, tuition or meal plan reimbursement for the time left in your training. We do our best when asked in advance to help students transfer to an alternate set of training dates as we understand unforeseen events, injury, illness, family matters, ect can and do come up. This is done on a case by case scenario. By registering for a program with FCYS, you acknowledge and agree to these policies without exception. 

 

COVID POLICY: 

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND PURCHASING TRAVEL INSURANCE!! 

 

Students attending Full Circle Yoga School trainings will be asked to arrive with a COVID negative test that is less than 72 hours old. We do NOT require vaccinations to attend our programs. In the event a student contracts COVID the student will have immediate full access to our 200hr Online Yoga Teacher Training which upon completion will give the student the same 200hr certification through Yoga Alliance. This online program will be lifetime access and you can work on completing this once you are home if illness prevents you from completing before your graduation date. Upon a positive covid test the student will be responsible for booking their own alternative lodging accommodations (hence our high recommendation to purchase travel insurance such as through Global Rescue which will cover all COVID related medical expenses and/or if evacuation is needed as well as tuition and all yoga teacher training expenses depending on the level of insurance you purchase) Full Circle staff will continue to support students through a COVID-positive recovery process. We have many lodging contacts in the areas of our trainings and will help with the delivery of food as best we can. The student/s will be allowed to return once they are cleared and have a COVID negative test which is typically a few to a handful of days. The training facilitators will be in daily contact with the student to make sure they are capable of handling their medical needs. 

During Training: 

● We will assign a personal bolster to each student for the duration of the course, which will be covered with a pillowcase. 

● Wash & change your own bolster pillowcase frequently. 

● Don’t adjust or touch other students during class time and when practice teaching unless you sanitize your hands and ask their permission. Students have the right to ask you to wear a mask while you are adjusting them. 

● Masks must be worn anytime not in the studio or the house. 

● Wash your hands frequently. 

● Use hand sanitizer each time you enter the studio or house. 

● Avoid touching your face and eyes. 

● Stay within the "bubble" of the training for the duration of the course. You are asked to not attend gatherings or events, even on your days off. 

● Inform your instructor immediately if you experience any Covid-like symptoms, and arrangements will be made for you to get tested as soon as possible.

DISMISSAL POLICY: 

Full Circle Yoga School is a top rated school that has graduated hundreds of students in it's 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.
