Payment and Refund Guidelines

When joining us at Hridaya Yoga France, we ask that you be aware of our payment and refund guidelines. These guidelines exist in order for us to harmoniously offer the teachings of the Spiritual Heart to as many people as possible. As space in both our courses and accommodation is limited, we require advance notice in the case that your plans change and you must cancel your enrollment. Thank you for mindfully planning your visit with us.

MEMBERSHIP

Hridaya Yoga France is a non-profit association made up of its members. Current membership is required of all participants in our courses. Membership runs from January to December and provides you with one year’s access to our facilities and to occasional members-only special offers. So, if you would like to attend a drop-in yoga class, come to practice Karma Yoga, or do a retreat or workshop, please ensure you have paid your annual dues of €10.00 (including tax). You may purchase or renew a membership as an optional item at checkout or by visiting this page.

PRICING NOTE

As Hridaya Yoga is a non-profit organization, we are committed to offering our courses at accessible rates while still acknowledging the significant financial needs of running a full-time yoga and meditation center. Our regular price is what it actually costs to run our center and provide our programs. If you cannot pay the regular price due to financial hardship you can apply for a scholarship.

Scholarships:

When you apply for a scholarship, you are attesting that you have a need and are truthfully representing your financial situation.

The value of the teachings offered at Hridaya Yoga France cannot be quantified in material terms. And, we would propose that skimping on paying for spiritual teachings is not conducive to your practice. So, before you request a scholarship we ask that you thoughtfully evaluate your financial situation. If you require a scholarship, please fill out and submit the Scholarship Award application form. We will review your application and respond as soon as we are able.

If you genuinely have a need, we will be happy to extend a scholarship to you. Just ask for it in truthfulness and integrity and it will be granted.

Sponsor a Student:

We also recognize that some people have the funds to allow them to support the spiritual work of those with fewer financial resources. So, we welcome donations to “Sponsor a Student.” Donations to this program will be used to assist us in offering scholarships to needy students. Please consider whether you can give more in order to support the practice of everyone in our community, regardless of financial situation. To contribute to our “Sponsor a Student” fund, click here.
