Yoga Instructor events are priced individually. Once we have received, reviewed and approved your completed application, we will forward detailed payment instructions to you.

A non-refundable deposit of USD $500 is required to secure your registration for any event with us. The balance must reach SOSA no later than one month prior to the commencement date of the even; if not, your place may be offered to someone on the waiting list and you will forfeit the deposit.

Some residential trainings or retreats will require securing your booking at least three months in advance of the event, in some cases directly with the venue on offer. More information will be provided to you upon receiving your application.

Our preferred method of payment is direct bank transfer. Please email us for details on transferring payments. We can be reached at or click here.


Due to the logistics required for planning an international Yoga Teacher Training, Immersion, or Retreat, we regret that we are unable to provide full or partial refunds. Extenuating circumstances may be considered.

In the unlikely event that the event gets cancelled, your money and your deposit will be returned minus an administrative cost of USD $100.

Please note that this refund policy pertains only to the training cost. Arrangements and contracts/agreements for accommodations, flights, travel documentation including visa and/or passports, etc. are the responsibility of the student/applicant. SOSA and organizers/teachers are not responsible for any personal injury or illness, please come prepared with your own health and/or travel insurance.
