FULL PAYMENT is EXPECTED BY Monday, June 1, 2020. Please contact Angela Essick Dykes to arrange payment: 616-225-1060. Right is reserved for cancellation due to inability of teacher to fulfill this commitment. In this event, full reimbursement will be provided. If you (the student) need to cancel please contact Angela Essick Dykes immediately to discuss reimbursement, if applicable. Any cancellation made after June 7, 2020 will be subject to reimbursement minus administrative fee of $50/per registrant. If you fail to attend this course after making payment, you forfeit any & all payments made, if you do not notify Angela Essick Dykes within 30 days post conclusion of this course (by 11:59:00 pm on July 11, 2020). If you miss attending any portion of this course, there is no guarantee you may be able to attend any future course led by Angela Essick Dykes. If you do not complete the entire training experience (punctuality & remaining in all sessions + full participation) you may receive a Participant Certificate, but not Certification to be a LY Leader (decisions based on Trainer’s discretion). No money will be refunded, but you may be able to attend another class, at a reduced rate, to obtain the Certification, as classes are available.
It is imperative that you are punctual for the beginning of each day and that you make arrangements so that you can conclude at the end time for each day. Once this certification is successfully completed, you are invited to co-lead a live group during future Laughfest sessions (with Angela Essick Dykes, as long as she is leading). This is a highly unique opportunity and will increase the value of your Laughter Yoga resume considerably! Your certification ceremony will be at the end of Friday’s agenda – you will most certainly want to attend this class.
