1. I understand that the teacher training includes yogic practices, which might imply uncommon physical activities for me (such as prolonged sitting meditations, breathing exercises, hatha yoga, etc). I am also aware that this training may challenge my common belief system, and therefore might provoke psychological reactivity. The content and the practice might evoke purification reactions on different levels: physical, emotional, and mental, and this may be sometimes unpleasant, but is usually not dangerous. I confirm that I am in a proper physical and psychological condition to participate in all these activities.

2. I voluntarily participate in this program with full knowledge that there are risks associated with many activities, and I agree to accept any risk that arises because of my participation. I further acknowledge that the activities mentioned above may be emotionally and/or mentally more demanding than my usual activities. I acknowledge my responsibility for exercising my own judgment in choosing to participate in certain exercises.

3. As a condition of enrolling for this course, I hereby personally assume all risks in connection with said course, for any harm, injury, or damage that may befall me while I am enrolled as a student of the Akasha Yoga Academy, including all risks connected therewith, whether foreseen or unforeseen.

4. I further exempt and hold harmless Akasha Yoga Academy and Released Parties (including all employees, volunteers, instructors, and agents of Akasha Yoga Academy or its host resorts) for any claim or lawsuits by me, my family, estate, heirs, or assigns, arising out of my enrollment and participation in this course.

I hereby understand that the Akasha Yoga Academy from time to time may photograph or video record classes or events occurring in its halls, and may place such photographs and videos on websites operated by the Akasha Yoga Academy, namely the website located at and official accounts operated by the Akasha Yoga Academy on the social media platforms Facebook and Instagram.

I understand that this Teacher Training can be an intense and challenging experience for me and my fellow students. I will do my best to adopt a positive attitude, and I will provide a loving and supporting environment for others. I agree to conduct myself in a respectful manner towards all teachers, fellow classmates and staff.

I understand that this is a demanding full-time course. I will devote my time and energies to give full priority to this training, practicing responsibility, ownership of my emotions, thoughts, and actions, and consistent engagement in self-study and self-awareness.

I understand that this Yoga Teacher Training is an educational program designed for groups. I am aware that if I face major physical or psychological challenges, I need to seek outside professional support. I understand that the Akasha team holds space for the entire group, and therefore I cannot expect exclusive personal guidance and psychological coaching beyond what is offered as part of the curriculum and during the standard personal interviews.

I understand that 100% punctuality and active participation is expected for all classes. Early arrival 5 minutes before each lecture/practice is required.

I understand that attendance to all classes is mandatory to complete the course. In the event of a properly excused absence, I understand that I can miss no more than 2 course days in total. Legitimate reasons could be sickness or administrative issues, e.g. visa. I also understand that if I miss more than the allowed number of hours, in compliance with the Yoga Alliance standards, I am not entitled to receive the official Yoga Instructor Certificate.

I understand that using electronic devices during a class or a lecture is disruptive for myself and others, and I agree not to use any electronic devices during the sessions.

I understand that I am required to fulfill the above obligations in order to remain on the course, and that tuition payment alone does not guarantee certification from the Akasha Yoga Academy Teacher Training. Punctuality, full participation, completion of all practicum assignments, demonstration of an understanding of the training content in a final exam, as well as acting in a respectful manner will insure certification and successful completion of the training.

I agree to abide by the payment policy: US $ 200 non-refundable deposit paid upon initial registration; closing date for full payment is one month prior to the training’s commencement. To benefit from the early-bird offer, the full payment is due two months prior to the course start date.

I understand that the tuition includes daily breakfast and lunch buffets, all teachings, handbooks and manuals, Yoga Alliance accredited certificate, letter of recommendation, and ongoing assistance in our long-term support program. I also understand that the tuition does not include transportation, accommodation and further meals.

I love Yoga :)
