Attendence Policy

Our program encourages that the students are on time for class, after breaks, and after lunch. Tardiness not only affects the quality of the learning; it also negatively affects the ambience of the class.

Additionally, our yoga program encourages the students to have 100% attendance as the missed class could affect the learning curve. However, we are cognizant of the fact, the students could have faced some extenuating circumstances which would require the absence of the student from the class. Upon such conditions, it is important that the program director or the assigned teacher is made aware beforehand, to make up for the lost time and the learnings. Also, it is at the discretion of the management to impart those missed lessons at a price deemed fit by the management. Students should recognize that, if they miss training hours that they have not made up, they will not graduate from the program.
