Terms and Conditions for Dedham Retreats

Section I Yoga
(Please find accommodation terms and conditions below in Section II)

Bookings for Courses, Workshops and Retreats

When booking a 4 Week Course, Workshop, Day or Weekend Retreat, 100% payment is required in advance. Please note that we can only provide a full refund (less a 10% admin fee) for cancellations made more than 28 days before the start date. For any other cancellations there will be no refunds or transfers unless your place can be filled from a waiting list, in which case we may be able to refund the fee (less a 20% admin fee). If a course or workshop is cancelled  by us you will be offered either a refund or a credit note towards an alternative course or event.

Single Class Bookings 
When booking a single class in advance we still require 24 hours notice for any cancellations, in which case you will be issued with a credit note towards a future class. Whenever possible please try to give us as much notice as possible if you are unable to attend for whatever reason. If payment is received in advance we cannot guarantee your space, but standby drop ins are always welcome. 

Online class bookings
Pre-booked classes must be paid for in advance and are only available as a 4 week course.  All classes will be recorded so those unable to attend in person due to illness or unforeseen emergencies will be able catch up later. 

Yoga 4 Week Course Terms
Once you have booked a 4 Week Course to attend a particular class, we will automatically reserve you a space in each of the classes and it is your responsibility to keep track of attending each week at the same time. Please note the pack is only valid for use in the 4 Week Course you select when booking. 4 Week Course payments received are non-refundable and non-transferable. Due to limited space available refunds or exchanges to other classes in the schedule are not guaranteed. 

Gift Cards
We issue gift cards which are sold specifically for use within 6 months of date of issue, as described on the card: i.e. Single Class, Moon Circle, 4 Week Course, or Day Retreat. The value of the gift card is noted in the receipt to the purchaser and is not considered to be exchangeable as cash payment towards other offerings. Due to limited availability in all of our classes and events it is recommended that recipients book their desired class, course or retreat as early as possible to avoid disappointment. 

Cash Bookings
The same terms and conditions apply for 4 Week Courses, Single Classes and Retreats purchased with cash. 

Appointments for private yoga classes
All private 1:1 appointments require payment in advance at booking. We operate a strict 48-hour cancellation policy. For cancellations made before 48 hours you will be able to reschedule for another available day and time in the practitioner's schedule. For cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice or if you do not show up for your appointment, you will not be able to reschedule, unless it is due to extenuating circumstances. If you are ill and unable to attend due to hospitalisation or having an infectious virus or disease then these are examples of extenuating circumstances. The details shown on the Dedham Retreats email booking confirmation are the date and time for which you will be charged if you miss your appointment or cancel less than 48 hours prior to the booked appointment. It is your responsibility to remember the day and time of your appointment. 

Teaching arrangements
Dedham Retreats provides yoga sessions taught by the best independent teachers from the surrounding area, all trained by the British Wheel of Yoga (Sport England's Recognised National Governing Body for Yoga). Dedham Retreats also provides the space for independent teachers and therapists to provide services such as workshops, day retreats and treatments. All payments for these services are accepted by Dedham Retreats on behalf of the teacher or therapist.
