From program start and up to completion of 25 percent of the program, 75 percent of tuition will be credited to your Kripalu account.

        Notes on Terms: For programs offered with multiple on campus and/or online sessions with nonprogram days in between course days, credits on account are based on full program length—meaning total number of days in which the program holds sessions associated with the posted tuition. (E.g. a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher training offered in two 12-day on campus sessions will have one tuition that covers 24 days, and early departure after the first 12-day session would result in a 50% tuition credit plus an additional credit for any unused accommodations/commuter fee and meal charges for program days remaining.) For other certifications with multiple modules, program cost is determined based on one module at a time. Program start date refers to the start of each module.

Up to completion of 50 percent of the program, 25 percent of the monies paid will be credited. All credits on account will be valid for 1 year from date of issue. No other refunds or credits are available, including any additional consideration for accommodations/commuter fee or meals. Kripalu’s standard cancellation policy applies to all other charges such as Healing Arts booking. Please note: cancellation of program involvement also includes dismissal of a student by Kripalu administration due to violations of student agreements and/or guest center policy.
