At Free Spirit Wellness, I strive to provide my students with exceptional instruction and customer service. This document acts as protocol for certain situations and helps ensure the integrity of my services. Please take a moment to read this document in its entirety before enrolling in any classes, workshops, events or retreats.


For the safety and protection of both students and teacher, all students are required to sign a Waiver of Liability form prior to the start of their first session. Please sign the document in ink. Electronic signatures are not accepted.


Private yoga classes 

In the event of a cancellation, notice must be given at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled time. Cancellations must be made by phone to 082 401 8389. Students will be charged the full amount of the session for cancellations made with less than 24 hours’ notice. Private session packages are non-refundable and may not be transferred or shared with 3rd parties.

Workshops and events

Workshops and events are non-refundable.  If you are unable to attend, you may pass your booking onto a friend at no additional cost, but I must be notified via email if someone is attending in your place.  If the event is fully booked and I am able to fill your place to someone on the waiting list, I will refund the cost, however no refunds will be offered if the space cannot be filled. Absence to a workshop is non-refundable. In the case of a course or workshop being cancelled by Free Spirit Wellness, you will receive a full refund, or the option of being transferred to another workshop or course of equal value. Cancellations must be sent to Sophia@wordpress-697850-2550232.cloudwaysapps.com or contact 082 401 8389.


Any participation in a scheduled Retreat may be cancelled only in writing. This can be done by sending an email to Sophia@wordpress-697850-2550232.cloudwaysapps.com

As your Yoga Teacher, my role is to:

– Retreat Payments.
Payment: I confirm that I have received your payment.
Refunds: I want you to be happy with your decision to join this Retreat. As I have invested time, effort and planning into our weekend, no refund will be provided should you withdraw within the 6 weeks prior to the start date. You will therefore be responsible for the full cost of the Retreat.

Refunds will apply as follows:

8 weeks before the retreat – 100% refund
6-8 weeks before the retreat – 50% refund
5 weeks before the retreat – No refund

If you have paid for your placement on retreat, your registration is non-refundable, but fully transferable. In other words, if you can’t attend, send a friend. This retreat is not transferable to a future retreat, yoga class payments or private yoga sessions. All requests for transfers must be received in writing to sophia@wordpress-697850-2550232.cloudwaysapps.com
