When applying to participate in a retreat, payment of a non-refundable deposit is required. There will be no contract between the parties until the relevant retirement deposit has been paid. Each retreat will have a payment schedule that will be relevant to it and which will be detailed on our website. Please note that payment schedules may differ depending on the retreat. Once you have contacted us, an email will be sent to you detailing the retirement payment schedule 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 retirement 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 complete the retreat will still have to pay the retreat costs, unless otherwise specified.


It is up to you to ensure that you can attend the entire course when you book or meet the terms that have been set with the payment schedule. We understand that there are times when you may be unable to participate after payment has been made and we will consider these situations with sympathy. 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 costs (less a 10% administration fee). If a replacement cannot be found, the withholding of the deposit (s) allocated to the payment schedule will be withheld. The cancellation of your reservation must be confirmed and notified by email.


AYL strongly recommends purchasing the appropriate insurance for your retirement.

Flights & Travel

It is up to the person 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 do not assume any responsibility for the outcome of this action and the subsequent terms attributed to those involved.

Withdrawal Disclaimer

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 the costs incurred by fire, natural disaster, war or threat of war, industrial action, technical transport problems, the closure of an airport 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.


Whenever possible, we will advise you in advance of any changes to be made to retirement programs.
