“You” refers to the guest booking a YogaOne Ocean Earth Retreats.

If you cancel your trip, YogaOne Ocean Earth Retreats does not offer refunds for any reason. Part of your payment may be used as credit for another retreat to be taken within one year of your original retreat date. We will happily transfer your credit to another guest as per your arrangement.
Depending on when you cancel, cancellation penalties may apply. Fees are determined by the following schedule:
- If you cancel more than 90 days before your retreat start date, 85% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat.
- If you cancel 60 – 89 days before your retreat start date, 70% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat. You will forfeit 30% of the price of your retreat.
- If you cancel 30 – 59 days before your retreat start date, 40% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat. You will forfeit 60% of the price of your retreat.

Exceptions to our policy cannot be made for any reason. We do not offer credit for a guest arriving late or leaving early. You must submit your signed Reservation Form and Waiver Agreement form within one week of booking or 90 days prior to retreat start date, whichever comes first. Guests who fail to do so, may be subject to an automatic cancellation and the above policy will apply.
