Past Cleveland Yoga Graduate Students:



100% attendance is required. Any missed hours must be completed before graduation. If the instructor is required to spend time with the student to cover missed information, a fee of $75/hour applies. Students who fail to hold make up sessions or pay their fee will be dismissed from the program.

Sessions begin on time and students are expected to be present and prepared. Any student who fails to attend a session without notification is assumed withdrawn from the program. In the event of a medical disability, a leave of absence will be granted. With a leave of absence, the student may reapply for the next available training and apply their credit for missed sessions towards this training.

Cancellation of sessions due to weather may occur. Additional hours may be added to the program if a cancellation is necessary. Additional hours may also be added if an opportunity for a workshop that compliments the training becomes available. We will give you the most advanced notice as possible to make arrangements if this occurs.
