3.1 Trainees agree that they undertake any online training at their own risk. Himalaya Yoga Valley accepts no liability for physical injuries or psychological/mental ill-health occurring during the online training.
3.2 Trainees agree to follow the instruction of Himalaya Yoga Valley teachers for injury prevention, including modifications for asana and use of props.
3.3 Trainees with pre-existing and existing physical injuries and medical conditions will make theses known to Himalaya Yoga Valley before enrolment. During the training, they will monitor their own bodies and will follow the advice of Himalaya Yoga Valley for modifications and yoga props for the injury(s) or condition (s).
3.4 Trainees with pre-existing and current injuries and medical conditions have contacted their treating physician or allied professional (physiotherapist, counsellor etc.) for clearance to enrol and participate in the online training.
3.5 As this is not a prenatal specific training program with modifications made to sequences and asana, Trainees who are pregnant are not permitted to partake in the online training for health and safety reasons of the baby and Mother. Yoga during pregnancy is contraindicated for the first trimester. The highest risk for miscarriage occurs in the first trimester as this is the time of embryo implantation and attachment of the placenta to the uterus. Teacher Training is an intensive training with a minimum of 4 hours of yoga practice per day, well above the range of physical activity a yoga class one attends as a student. Yoga can be practised after the first trimester but it must be modified. We do not offer these modified postures on the TTC. Trainees who suspect they may be pregnant are strongly advised to seek medical advice before commencing a TTC as they are required to cease their training if they find out they are pregnant during the course. In this instance, the pregnant trainee can resume their training at a later date within 2 years of their enrolled date. If HimalayaYoga Valley discontinues the training program or ceases operations they are not liable to issue any refund in this instance.
Our priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our students.
3.6 Trainees understand and fully accept that neither Himalaya Yoga Valley (Europe Ltd) or any of its staff, teaching staff, Managers, volunteers or Interns are in part, or in full, responsible for any aggravation or reoccurrence of a current condition(s) or newly sustained related injury(s) that they may incur while participating in any Himalaya Yoga Valley online yoga training programme.
