1. COURSE MATERIALS TO BE PROVIDED BY KATIE SILCOX YOGA.
In exchange for good and valuable consideration, Katie Silcox Yoga agrees to provide the Student with a 300-hour Ayurveda Lifestyle Coach Online Training Certification Program (the “Course”). The Course shall last for a period of from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. During the duration of the course, Katie Silcox Yoga shall provide (a) approximately one three-hour class per week; (b) one six-hour class per month; (c) access to the online platform, through which the Student may access course materials and interact with students and Course faculty. Dates for the weekly and monthly classes shall be provided prior to the start date of the Course. The Student acknowledges that due to the nature and duration of the Course scheduling may be subject to change. Katie Silcox Yoga will make a reasonable effort to provide the Student with advance notice of such schedule changes.
The Student acknowledges that all Course materials and content provided by Katie Silcox Yoga or any Course faculty member is non-transferrable and may not be shared with anyone not currently enrolled in, or a graduate of, the Shakti School Ayurveda Lifestyle Coach Online Training Certification Program. The violation of this provision of this agreement shall be grounds for immediate expulsion from the Course without refund of any Tuition amounts or other penalties as provided by applicable law.
The Student acknowledges that Course materials such as textbooks and additional reading materials may be required or recommended by Katie Silcox Yoga and/or Course faculty which are not included in the price of the Course. Obtaining such materials is the sole responsibility of the Student.
The Student further acknowledges that all costs associated with the Course Graduation Retreat (expected to be held in early 2020) are in addition to the price of the Course. All costs associated with attendance at the Course Graduation Retreat are the sole responsibility of the Student.
2. PAYMENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
a. Tuition Amount
In exchange for participation in the Course and access to all Course materials listed in Paragraph 1, above, the student agrees to pay tuition in an amount agreed upon between the Student and Katie Silcox Yoga (the “Tuition”). That amount shall be paid either as a one-time payment or as twelve equal payments. Such Tuition payments shall be made by check (made payable to Katie Silcox Yoga) or by credit card through the form located at www.katiesilcox.com.
b. Limitation On Tuition Refunds
The Student acknowledges that the Course has a limited number of seats available. Due to the limited capacity of the Course and the likelihood that the Course will fill in advance of its start date, the Student agrees that in the event that they withdraw from the Course between November 1, 2018 and December 15, 2018, they will receive a refund of fifty percent (50%) of the total Tuition amount due for the Course. No Tuition refunds shall be available for any withdrawals made after December 15, 2018, and the entire Tuition amount shall be due and owing.
c. Special Terms Applicable To Refunds For Installment Plans
In an effort to make the Course and the teachings provided therein available to all those who wish to access it, Katie Silcox Yoga has permitted students the option to pay the Course Tuition in installments over the period of twelve (12) months. In order to facilitate this installment payment offering, the following additional special terms apply:
i. In the event that the Student has elected to make Tuition payments pursuant to the installment plan and then withdraws from the Course on or after November 1, 2018, within thirty (30) days of the date that notice of such withdrawal is provided to Katie Silcox Yoga, the Student shall remit to Katie Silcox Yoga the entire remaining balance of the fifty percent (50%) Tuition owed for students withdrawing between November 1, 2018 and December 15, 2018, or the full Tuition owed for students withdrawing after December 15, 2018.
ii. In the event that the Student has elected to make Tuition payments pursuant to the installment plan and the credit card of file with Katie Silcox Yoga is lost, expires, or for any other reason fails to authorize a monthly payment on the applicable due date, the Student will be given fifteen (15) days from the date the student receives notice that the payment was not authorized to provide Katie Silcox Yoga with an updated method of payment. Failure to provide such updated method of payment within this fifteen (15) day window will result in the Student losing access to all Course materials, including all class sessions facilitated by Course faculty. Such suspension shall remain in effect until the full balance of Tuition remaining owed for the Course is paid by the Student in full.
d. Late Payments
All Tuition balances outstanding for thirty (30) days and longer shall be subject to two percent (2%) interest per month until such a time that the outstanding Tuition balance is paid in full.
