YogaBasicsRetreats.com reserves the right to cancel the Trip prior to departure. If such cancellation is NOT due to circumstances beyond the Trip Organizer’s control, such as war etc. as set forth below, the Trip Organizer will refund all payments, constituting full settlement with the participant. No compensation or refund will be made when cancellation arises before or during the trip from circumstances beyond our and/or our suppliers’ control (force majeure) such as war, strife, civil disobedience, strikes, terrorist activity, adverse weather conditions, fire, natural disasters, etc., unless or until the Trip Organizer is able to recover any Trip-related sums. In the event of cancellation arising from circumstances beyond our control as set forth above, Trip-related sums recovered by the Trip Organizer will be distributed equitably to the participants after the Trip Organizer deducts all out-of-pocket costs and related expenses.
• It is highly recommended that participants purchase their own trip cancellation insurance. The Trip Organizer is not responsible for
expenses, including but not limited to lodging, meals, and transportation, incurred for delays and/or detainments beyond the trip itinerary as a result of circumstances beyond our and/or our suppliers’ control such as war, etc. as set forth above.
