Retreat Policy

When applying for a retreat, payment of a non-refundable deposit is required. There will be no contract between the parties until the relevant pension deposit has been paid. Each retreat will have a payment schedule relevant to it which will be detailed on our website. Please note that payment schedules may differ between retreats. Once you have contacted us, an email will be sent to you detailing the payment schedule for the retreat you have paid to attend and all relevant details. You must make payment to confirm your reservation, plus the deposit. Failure to comply with the payment schedule may engage the right of Ashtanga Yoga Lausanne (AYL) to cancel your reservation, therefore AYL applying the cancellation fees as indicated below.


If the pension payment is by bank transfer, please provide your last name as the transfer reference and send us a confirmation of the transfer. Those who wish to attend a retreat but cannot do the entire retreat will still be required to pay the retreat fee unless otherwise specified.


It is up to you to ensure that you can attend the entire course when you book or that you meet the conditions that have been set with the payment schedule. We understand that there are times when you may not be able to participate once payment has been made and we will look into these situations sympathetically. In this regard, if your place(s) can be given to someone on the relevant retirement waiting list then we will reimburse you for the fee (less a 10% administration fee). If a replacement cannot be found, the holdback of the deposit(s) assigned to the payment schedule will be withheld. The cancellation of your reservation must be confirmed and notified by email.


AYL strongly recommends taking out the appropriate insurance for your retirement.

Flights & Travels

It is up to the individual to book and pay for the relevant flights/trips that bring the individual into retirement for the start date. AYL are not responsible for flight times and prices.


We will sometimes give individuals details of flights that others are on, for the benefit of the company or ease of travel. This is done in good faith and for the benefit of all concerned. However, we assume no responsibility for the outcome of this action and subsequent terms awarded to those involved.


AYL accepts no responsibility for theft or damage to personal property; personal injuries or medical conditions that develop during or after retirement. We are not responsible for costs caused by fire, natural disaster, war or threat of war, industrial action, technical transport problems, airport closure or any other event beyond our control.


Individuals participate in AYL retreats entirely at their own risk and parents take full responsibility for their children.


Where possible, we will notify you in advance of changes to retirement programs.
