Terms of Service – Retreat


To reserve your spot, you will be required to transfer the non-refundable deposit to Tanja Ottesen Yoga. Once the deposit is received, we will confirm your registration shortly. Your place is not guaranteed until your deposit and registration form are received and we have sent you a confirmation.


Your registration is binding and we are not giving a refund, but in case you are unable to participate yourself you are welcome to hand over and give your space to someone else. Please send us an email to tanjaottesen@gmail.com with information if you have sold your ticket and someone else is participating instead. If by very little chance the retreat is cancelled you will get a full refund.

It is not possible to receive a credit or refund in case you arrive late or leave early.

If Tanja Ottesen Yoga must cancel a booked retreat date for any reason except force majeure circumstances, you may request to have your full retreat payment transferred to another retreat, or you may apply for a full refund. Tanja Ottesen Yoga will not be responsible to any additional costs associated with a cancelled retreat, so we strongly encourage you to purchase a travel insurance at the time of booking.

The retreat will be held if a minimum of 12 participants are signed up.


Full payment is due 3 months before the retreat unless you are instructed otherwise (in some cases the second instalment is payable directly to our retreat centres and their payment deadlines may vary). It is only when the full payment is received on time that you can participate in the retreat.


Participation in the retreat is at your own risk – both residence and education. Tanja Ottesen Yoga disclaims any liability with regard to illness, injury or the like.

By registering for a yoga retreat with Tanja Ottesen Yoga, you agree that you will not hold Tanja Ottesen Yoga responsible for any injury, accident, illness or harm that may befall you or any damage which may occur to your property while you are in transit to or from or attending a Tanja Ottesen Yoga program including injury, accident, illness, harm or damage caused by or resulting from any acts of Tanja Ottesen Yoga, other than gross negligence or wilful misconduct. 

By registering for a retreat with Tanja Ottesen Yoga, you agree that you understand that no physical activity, including yoga, is risk free. Tanja Ottesen Yoga teachers are qualified and experienced teachers yet in spite of teacher’s integrity, a student could injure him or herself through forcing the poses or not performing the poses at their own level of ability. You agree to keep yourself healthy and injury free during yoga class by listening to your body and opting out of poses or choosing modifications of poses where your breath becomes halting, and/or there is strain.


It’s a good idea to protect yourself by choosing a travel insurance when you register for a yoga retreat.

Depending on the policy and conditions, travel cancellation insurance will cover some or all cancellation fees. You may also choose a policy that protects you in case the retreat is cancelled due to weather conditions or force majeure circumstances, lost baggage and/or medical expenses if you get sick. You can also insure your air tickets.

With the majority of insurance companies, insurance must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation.


Course, transport and accommodation are bought separately and therefor the event is not covered by the Travel Guarantee Fund coverage.
