The 8 Limbs Yoga Centers community of yoga teachers and practitioners is a creative and inspiring environment in which to explore the concepts of yoga instruction and support the unfolding of your own Sat Guru, or inner teacher. Our instructors are committed to personal and professional growth, and to sharing the transformative practice of yoga through their teaching. It is in the spirit of 8 Limbs Yoga Centers – a dedication to the study and sharing of the discipline of yoga – that we have created the 8 Limbs Teacher Training Program, licensed as a vocational school by the state of Washington Workforce Board (360.709.4600) and registered by Yoga Alliance.

Cancellation and Refund Policy for 8 Limbs Teacher Training Programs, as required by the Washington State Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board

8LYC will refund all money paid if the applicant is not accepted or if class is canceled for any reason.

8LYC must refund all money paid if the applicant cancels within five business days (excluding Sundays and holidays) after the day their enrollment contract is signed or an initial payment is made, as long as the applicant has not begun training.

8LYC may retain an established registration fee equal to ten percent of the total tuition cost, or one hundred dollars, whichever is less, if the applicant cancels after the fifth business day after signing the contract or making an initial payment. A “registration fee” is any fee charged by a school to process student applications and establish a student record system.

If training is terminated after the student enters classes, 8LYC may retain the registration fee established under (3) of this subsection, plus a percentage of the total tuition as described in the following table:

If the student completes this amount of training: 8LYC may keep this percentage of the tuition cost:

Up to 10% of training: 10%
More than 10% but less than 25%: 25%
25% through 50%: 50%
More than 50%: 100%

When calculating refunds, the official date of a student’s termination is the last day of recorded attendance:

(a) When 8LYC receives notice of the student’s intention to discontinue the training program; or,

(b)When the student is terminated for a violation of a published 8LYC policy which provides for termination; or,

(c) When a student, without notice, fails to attend classes for thirty calendar days.


Religious Accommodation: 8 Limbs Yoga Centers will make good faith efforts to provide reasonable religious accommodations to students who have sincerely held religious practices or beliefs that conflict with a scheduled course/program requirement. Students requesting a religious accommodation should make the request, in writing, directly to their instructor with as much advance notice as possible. Being absent from class or other educational responsibilities does not excuse students from keeping up with any information shared or expectations set during the missed class. Students are responsible for obtaining materials and information provided during any class missed. The student shall work with the instructor to determine a schedule for making up missed work.

Examples of religious accommodations may include: rescheduling of an exam or giving a make-up exam for the student in question; altering the time of a student’s presentation; allowing extra-credit assignments to substitute for missed class work or arranging for an increased flexibility in assignment due dates; and releasing a graduate assistant from teaching or research responsibilities on a given day.
