Terms and Conditions of Use

Our terms of use, liability information and privacy statement

Practice safely

One of the most important skills yoga can teach us is greater body awareness. No yoga teacher knows your body as well as you do, so if anything doesn't feel right, you are free to take breaks and/or skip poses or sequences that are not suitable for you. 

We recommend that you use these online classes in addition to attending classes or workshops with an experienced yoga teacher who can observe you and give you personal guidance where required. 

We do not offer medical advice. If you have any doubts please consult your medical practitioner before starting yoga or if you are coming back to it after illness or injury. This is particularly important for, but not limited to, the following conditions: if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, have low or high blood pressure, or have any existing medical condition or injuries. If you feel dizzy, light-headed, faint, or if you experience any other discomfort, stop immediately and take a resting pose. Consult a medical professional if your symptoms do not pass.

Most classes on this website will include warming up and cooling down sections, however, shorter classes such as pose tutorials may not. Please take responsibility for your own body and include extra warm up and cool down stretches where appropriate to avoid injuries.

Account and payments

Free trial and membership options

We offer a free two-week trial for new members. We ask for your payment details when you register because we take a small test payment of 1 cent. This is refunded to you. At the end of your trial, your membership will automatically convert to a monthly recurring subscription unless you cancel within your trial period. To view the end date of your free trial go to your account settings and view subscription.

A monthly or annual subscription with EkhartYoga gives you access to all our classes and programs. See our Pricing page for details of what’s included. 

Payment methods

You can pay online with a credit card from Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Or pay using PayPal, SofortBanking, iDeal, Vpay or Bancontact.
All our credit card transactions are secure and processed by Buckaroo Payment Services. We do not store your payment details on our own servers. Visa uses Verified by Visa for extra security when paying online. Mastercard uses Mastercard Securecode for added protection.

For some payment methods, the service provider may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees. Please check with your payment method service provider for details. 

You can view and change your payment methods in your Account Settings once you are a member. Please note: When changing your payment details, we will charge you immediately for your next subscription period in order to confirm your payment method. We will add this onto your existing running subscription so no days will be lost.

Recurring payments

Your monthly subscription is automatically renewed each month so you will be charged at the end of every subscription period until you decide to cancel your account. Your membership fee will be charged to your payment method on the date indicated on your subscription tab in your Account settings. In some cases your payment date may change, for example if your payment has not successfully gone through or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month. 

Annual subscriptions taken out after April 19th 2019 are automatically recurring. If you took out an annual subscription before April 19th 2019 we will send you a reminder email before your subscription expires.

For most payment methods you will be automatically charged around 24 hours before your new month begins. If you are paying through iDeal your payments will be taken around 72 hours before due to longer bank processing times.

Cancellations

You can cancel your subscription at any time via your account settings. Please note that recurring payments are taken a minimum of 24 hours before the end of your subscription period. You will continue to have access to EkhartYoga's classes until the end of your monthly or annual subscription period. Please see our payment FAQ for full details.

Refunds

We do not offer refunds for partial membership periods or if you have not used the service. 

Changes to the subscription price

We may change the price of our subscriptions. However, we will notify you in advance and any price changes or changes to your subscription plans will only apply to subsequent billing cycles.
