Full terms & conditions
 Place on retreat subject to confirmation by Mr P Franklin (the Owner) and / or via Chene Yoga Ltd to the customer (the Client).
 To reserve a space on the retreat the Client should complete a booking request form, read and agree to the terms and conditions and click send. Upon confirmation of availability the Client will then be provided with payment instructions and must then pay the initial non-refundable deposit of £160 to reserve their space. The remaining balance can be paid at the same time as the deposit or up to 10 weeks prior to the retreat start date. After the 10 week limit passes the space cannot be guaranteed if the whole balance has not been paid. The deposit remains non-refundable.
Following the receipt of the deposit the Owners will send a confirmation receipt. This is the formal acceptance of the booking.
 The balance of the fee is payable no less than ten weeks before the start of the retreat period. If payment is not received by the due date the Owners reserve the right to give notice in writing that the reservation is cancelled. Reservations made within ten weeks of the start of the retreat period require payment at the time of booking.
 Subject to clause 2 and 3 above in the event of non-insurable cancellation refunds of amounts paid will be made if the Owners are able to re-fill the space on the retreat or the client provides a replacement. Any expenses or losses incurred in so doing will be deducted from the refundable amount. The Client is strongly recommended to arrange a comprehensive travel insurance policy (including cancellation cover) and to have full cover for the party’s personal belongings, public liability etc since these are not covered by the Owners’ insurance.
 If the Client wishes to cancel their booking they must notify the Owner in writing. The deposit of £160 remains non-refundable, the remaining balance already paid will be refunded if there remains over ten weeks before the retreat start date. If the ten week cut-off has passed, refunds will be awarded on a sliding scale as follows:
Weeks remaining until retreat start date % of paid balance returned to Client
8 – <10 75
6 – <8 60
4 – <6 40
