Hridaya Teacher Training Course

Payment and Refund Information


The HTTC course fee is €3,000. The full payment deadline is August 11. The course fee includes complimentary participation in two 10-Day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreats co-led by Sahajananda. Participation in these retreats is a mandatory part of the course curriculum.

Accommodation and Meals

The tuition fee does not include accommodation or meals but both are available on-site. We recommend that you book your preferred accommodation option upon registration to ensure your place. Accommodation options and meal plans along with indicative prices can be found at the bottom of this page.

Initial Registration upon Approval

Upon approval of your application, you will also receive an email regarding registration.  Full payment or an initial deposit of 50% is required to confirm your enrollment. The preferred method of payment is by bank transfer.

Once your payment has been received, you will receive a notification email confirming this.

Full Payment to Confirm Reservation

Any remaining balance due is payable by August 11.

Full payment will constitute a confirmation of your place in the course. If we don’t receive the final payment by the stated deadline, we will assume that you have canceled your enrollment. 

Hridaya Yoga is not responsible for payment errors, personal problems with credit card accounts, power outages, internet inaccessibility, bank holidays, etc. These guidelines are given well in advance of the deadline to give you the opportunity to verify all of these factors and make a timely payment. Please take advantage of this advance notice to investigate your account maximums, account functionality, etc.

We advise you to handle any payment issues in advance, as we cannot make an exception if you miss the final payment deadline.

In special cases, Sahajananda may choose to offer scholarships to students with a strong aspiration to serve but few economic resources.

Cancellation and Refund Guidelines

You may cancel your enrollment by emailing us. Note that the following refund guidelines will apply.

Cancellation before full payment deadline:

  • 10% of total booking fees will be kept as an administrative surcharge and the remainder of the deposit will be refunded.

Cancellation after full payment deadline:

  • At least 14 days before check-in: 50% of total booking fees will be kept as an administrative surcharge and the remainder of the booking total will be refunded.
  • 0 to 13 days before check-in: 75% of total booking fees will be kept as an administrative surcharge and the remainder of the booking total will be refunded.
  • After check-in: No refunds or credits will be issued.

Selection Process

Hridaya Yoga holds very high standards for its teaching staff. There is a selection process that applies to each level of the course. To graduate, you will be expected to pass three exams and earn a positive final teaching evaluation.

The first month of the HTTC serves as a semi-trial period, during which all participants are evaluated—with emphasis given to their level of enthusiasm, dedication, and aspiration. At the end of this period, Sahajananda will have an individual meeting with you and make a decision as to whether or not you have demonstrated the necessary qualities to successfully complete the HTTC. If we decide that the course is not the best fit for you, we will refund two-thirds of the fees for tuition, accommodation, and meals. No refunds will be given after this point in the course.

If you don’t pass the final exam, you may retake it. If you fail the make-up exam, you may participate in a future HTTC for 50% of the tuition fee.

You can find a detailed explanation of HTTC expectations for students in the Criteria for Certification and Terms of Agreement.
