TTCs and Other Training Programs
The following guidelines apply to all Agama TTC programs (TTC200, 300HR upgrade to ATTC500, ATTC500, AYTT, ATIT, ATI) as well as teacher training and practitioner/facilitator training collaborations (MDTTC, Rebirthing Practitioner and Facilitator Trainings, etc.), where applicable.
Deposits: Please be aware that many programs require payment in two parts: a deposit followed by full tuition. A deposit guarantees your place in a program and is nonrefundable under all circumstances. The only exception is for applicants who are not approved to join a program by either Agama or the program facilitator (in the case of External Events); in this case, the deposit will be fully refunded.
You may defer your enrollment (deposit) once to the same course within one year of your original course date; to do so please inform us in writing by emailing [email protected] at any time before your TTC is scheduled to begin. An applicant who chooses to withdraw himself/herself after approval may not apply the deposit toward other courses.
Tuition: Full tuition must be paid at least five (5) weeks before the course start. (For the TTC200 and ATTC500, the course start date is day 1 of the Level 1 Yoga Intensive.) Placement is not guaranteed if tuition is not paid by the payment deadline, and you will be moved to the waiting list. When the full tuition is paid and if there are still places available, you will be enrolled in the program. If you apply less than five (5) weeks prior to course start, payment of both the deposit and full tuition must be made at once. Note! For the ATI and ATIT programs, full tuition must be paid by 10 weeks before the course start date. If you apply less than 10 weeks prior to the ATI or ATIT course start, payment of both the deposit and full tuition must be made at once to secure your place.
Prior attendance of the Level 1 Yoga Intensive: Applicants who have previously paid for or completed this course are eligible for a TTC200 or ATTC500 tuition discount, as specified on the relevant webpages. The same discount applies to all eligible students, even if the Level 1 tuition was paid through a special package, such as an accommodation package, or at an active Agama branch center (with verification of course completion and certificate).
Deferred enrollment: If you have applied to a program, paid the deposit, and been approved, but decide you cannot attend the course, you may defer your enrollment to an identical program one time only within one year of the original program. After one year, the deposit is no longer valid, and hopeful students must reapply for the same or other courses. You may decide to defer at any time prior to your course starting, but please note the deadlines for tuition refund in our withdrawal policy. These deadlines will be applied to deferred enrollments. To defer your enrollment, please inform us in writing by emailing [email protected].
Early bird pricing: There is an early bird discount for all TTC courses paid in full two months or more prior to the course start date (with the exception of the ATI and ATIT programs). Early bird pricing expires and regular pricing is implemented less than two months before the course begins.
Upgrading from Level 1 to the TTC200: Level 1 Yoga Intensive participants who would like to upgrade to the TTC200 program may apply until Friday of Week 1 at 16:00, as long as they have maintained regular attendance.
Students may have missed up to three classes and still successfully apply to join. Students who have missed more than three classes should contact the Teaching Department Manager ([email protected]) to apply with exceptional consideration.
Those who completed full attendance of Level 1 within three months of the current TTC200 may also apply to join the program until Friday of Week 1, with full attendance expected beginning Monday of Week 2. It is otherwise not possible to split the TTC200 into parts.
Upgrading from the TTC200 to the ATTC500: TTC200 participants may choose to upgrade their enrollment to the ATTC500 course. If you decide to pursue this option at the end of the TTC200 then the deadline for full payment is Monday of Week 5. The same withdrawal policies apply.
Withdrawal from a program after approval: If you decide to withdraw from a program, you must notify us in writing by emailing [email protected]. A student who has paid tuition but decides to withdraw from the course has the following options:
More than five (5) weeks prior to the course start date (or 10 weeks in the case of the ATI and ATIT programs): 100% of tuition paid (please note: not including the deposit, which is nonrefundable) may be refunded by PayPal or held as Agama Credits.
From one (1) to five (5) weeks prior to the course start date: 75% of tuition paid may be refunded by PayPal or 100% of tuition paid can be held as Agama Credits.
Less than one (1) week prior to the course start date: 50% of tuition paid may be refunded by PayPal or 75% of tuition paid can be held as Agama Credits.
Once the program begins: No Agama Credits will be issued.
Withdrawal from a program after the course begins: Any Agama teacher training course books, supplementary course materials, or manuals issued must be returned.
Note: The course start date is the first day of Level 1 for the TTC200 and ATTC500, or the first day of Week 6 for TTC300 participants. Once the course has begun (Day 1) the ATTC500 may not retroactively be considered two modules, since it is a package course (TTC200 + 300HR upgrade to ATTC500) purchased at a discount.
There is no such thing as a downgrade from the ATTC500. If you are not sure of your participation, purchase the 500-hour training in modules (TTC200 + 300HR upgrade to ATTC500).
Waitlists: All those who wish to join the waiting list for a program that is full need to apply via the normal procedure and pay the deposit. If approved but still not accepted, the applicant may withdraw at any time with full refund of the deposit fee. However, once a space opens up and the applicant has been accepted to a program, the applicant is considered an enrolled participant and the above guidelines apply.
If a space opens up in the course, those on the waiting list will be notified. Applicants will have three days following notification (based on the date/time the notification was sent by Agama) to confirm their participation by paying the full remainder of tuition.
Workshops and Retreats
Waitlists: All those who wish to join a workshop or retreat that is full need to pay normally to be added to the waiting list. If a position becomes available, the applicant will be informed immediately and considered an enrolled participant. However, if no place opens up the full cost of the course will be refunded. All waitlisted students may withdraw from the waitlist at any time prior to being accepted to the course for a full refund, but once a place has opened up and the student has been accepted to the course, the usual workshop and retreat refund policies apply (see below).
Substituted or Canceled Events: Agama reserves the right to cancel or substitute events. In such cases, refunds will be given if requested according to the original method of payment. However, please note: There are no credit card refunds. Payments originally made by credit card will be refunded in cash in such cases.
Refunds: One (1) month or more prior to the course start: 100% of fees paid may be refunded by PayPal or cash (if cash/card original payment) or held on account in Agama Credits.
Less than one (1) month until one (1) week prior to the course start: There are no refunds but 100% of fees paid may be converted to Agama Credits.
Less than one (1) week prior to the course start: There are no refunds but 75% of fees paid may be converted into Agama Credits.
Once the workshop or retreat begins: No Agama Credits will be issued.
Attendance: No one may attend a workshop or retreat session unless payment has been made in full. Please visit the Registration Office during open hours to pay (7:45-11:30 and 15:30-17:00 Monday through Saturday) or make your payment online prior to the first session. Be aware that for retreats beginning on a Sunday, registration must be completed by 17:00 on Saturday afternoon.
Yoga Course Levels
Level 1: No cash refunds will be given. Everyone is given a free day so that they may sample the Agama format, intensity, and Yoga style. Please pay the daily or weekly rate if you are not certain about your participation. You will have another opportunity to pay Level 1 at a discounted rate, if upgrading to the full course, by the end of your second week. If you have paid in full but want to cancel your participation:
At any time before the course starts: 100% of fees paid may be converted to Agama Credits. In order to receive the Credits, the course book must be returned, if it was issued to you already.
Once the course begins: No Agama Credits will be issued, but you are welcome to attend the course at any time at our Thailand center.
Hridaya Module 1 graduates: Please note that the Agama Level 1 Intensive course must be completed in order to advance in the Agama Yoga Program. We offer a substantial discount to Hridaya Module 1 graduates, please contact [email protected] for more information.
Levels 2 and up: No cash refunds will be given once the course cycle begins.
Refunds: One (1) month or more prior to the course start: 100% of fees paid may be refunded by PayPal or cash (if cash/card original payment) or held on account in Agama Credits.
Less than one (1) month before the course cycle begins, a 75% refund will be granted by PayPal/cash (according to original payment) or 100% in Agama Credits.
No attendance is allowed without payment. Please pay online or visit the Registration Office during open hours prior to attending your first class of the course cycle. The office is open 7:45-11:30 and 15:30-17:00 Monday through Saturday.
Sash Exams: There is no cost to students for regularly scheduled sash exams. A student who does not pass the required Sash Exam may enroll in the next course level as long as he or she simultaneously enrolls in a private Sash Exam, which must be completed during Weeks 1 or 2 of the next course level. If the student fails the exam a second time, he or she may not continue with the course level. Once a student passes the Sash Exam in question, he or she may continue with the next course level as a repeating/makeup student. No cash refunds will be given.
All Agama packages (eg Red Sash Retreat, Two Sash Intensive, Upper Level Teachings, Tantra & Fusion Packages) are nonrefundable once the first event of the package has started. If you are unsure if you will be able to attend all courses included in the package, it is best to purchase them separately.
