We know that terms and conditions can be a bit boring, but they are here both to protect us both, so please make a cup of tea, sit down and have a good read of them.
1.1 All contracts in respect of retreats and wellness events are made with Perfect Pose Retreats. Your contract with us incorporates these Terms and Conditions and by making a booking with us you confirm your acceptance of them.
2.1 When you make a booking and pay for your place on a retreat, we will reserve your arrangements based on these Terms and Conditions.
2.2 Please follow carefully all the booking details and subsequent instructions. We shall not be liable for your failure to do so.
2.3 You must be at least 18 years of age at the time of booking.
2.4 The person who makes the booking is responsible for ensuring that these Terms and Conditions are drawn to the attention of every person on whose behalf he/she has made the booking. We will only deal with that person in all subsequent correspondence and dealings.
2.5 When you make a booking you are confirming that you understand these Terms and Conditions and have the authority to accept, and do accept them on behalf of yourself and all members of your party. You are also responsible for making all payments due, ensuring the accuracy of all personal details and other information supplied in respect of yourself and your party, notifying us of any changes or cancellations and for receiving correspondence and keeping your party informed of any changes to your booking.
2.6 Your booking will be taken as confirmed in respect of all persons named on your booking request and a binding contract between us will come into existence only when you have made full payment and we have also sent to you our Written Confirmation by email. If your proposed arrangements are not available at the time of booking then a Written Confirmation will not be issued and payment will be returned (unless you accept alternative arrangements that we are able to provide). We strongly recommend that you do not make any travel or other arrangements prior to receiving our formal confirmation that your requested date is available, as we cannot be held liable for any loss incurred.
2.7 Please check the Written Confirmation as soon as you receive it. Contact us immediately if any information which appears on the Written Confirmation appears to be incorrect or incomplete, as it may not be possible to make changes later.
2.8 We regret that we cannot accept any responsibility if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any document, including the Written Confirmation, within 10 days of sending it out. Whilst we Perfect Pose will do our best to rectify any inaccuracies notified outside of this time limit, you will be responsible for any costs and expenses involved in doing so.
3.1 You will pay us the full price of your retreat or wellness event as set out online or quoted in written correspondence from Perfect Pose at the time you place the booking.
3.2 Payments will be made via Perfect Pose's online booking system or through bookyogaretreats.com. At Perfect Pose Retreats’ discretion, it may be possible for some payments to be made by cheque or bank transfer. Please contact us first if you wish to pay this way.
3.3 We reserve the right to refuse a booking without giving any reason for such refusal.
4. AMENDMENT OR CANCELLATION BY YOU
4.1 If you wish to change your arrangements in any way you must inform us in writing as soon as possible. We will try to help you, although we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to do this as changes are subject to availability at the time.
4.2 If we are unable to make the requested amendments and you do not wish to continue with your booking then our cancellation charges apply.
4.3 If you wish to cancel all or part of your booking you must write to us as soon as you can and receive acknowledgement from us.

4.5 Dishonoured cheques will incur a £25 charge.
4.6 The following cancellation charges will apply:
More than 56 days = 40% of total cost payable
55 – 22 days = 70% of total cost payable
21 days or less = 100% of total cost payable
4.7 If cancellation of a party member results in under occupancy of a room with a shared bed, the person remaining in that room must pay the single occupancy rate at the time of cancellation.
5. AMENDMENT OR CANCELLATION BY US
5.1 Perfect Pose Retreats reserves the right in any circumstance to cancel any retreat. For example, some retreats operate only with a minimum number of participants and we may therefore have to cancel where there are insufficient numbers. In this eventuality, you will be offered transfer to another retreat (without administration charges) or a full and prompt refund.
5.2 Where we make a cancellation we will not be liable for any problems caused or losses, such as but not exclusively travel costs, incurred by you.
6. SPECIFIC TERMS ON ACTIVITIES
6.1 We cannot take responsibility for the weather conditions experienced on a retreat.
6.2 We reserve the right to amend or cancel activities at our absolute discretion where staff or guest safety is regarded as being at risk. This may happen for reasons including adverse weather conditions, health concerns that were not clearly identified at the time of booking, or fitness levels that are not appropriate for the activity. Examples of circumstances under which activities may need to be amended include flooding of areas and snow and ice on walking routes.
6.3 If activities are amended or cancelled due to safety considerations, we will do our very best to provide alternatives that are favourable to the guests. At our discretion, we may also offer a discount on future bookings, but there is no requirement for Perfect Pose Retreats to offer any compensation.
6.4 Whilst appropriately qualified persons will advise on safety, and lead activities, participants engage in these activities at their own risk and accept responsibility for their own actions.
