CODE OF CONDUCT
Fringe strive to provide the FYTT course at a high standard, to reflect our own passion, commitment, hard work and dedication. We expect that our Students reflect this also in their approach to the FYTT and ask that your conduct throughout the course and whilst on Fringe premises is of an acceptable standard.
There is a set minimum attendance rate of 90% throughout the course. In the event that a Student is aware that they will be unable to attend a certain date, they must inform Fringe with a 6 week notice period (the “Notice Period”);
If the Notice Period is not adhered to and a key session (being one of the full weekend sessions focusing on the elements) is missed, attendance at this session must be made up, this may incur a fee to be able to book a place with the relevant yoga teacher;
If a Student is unable to complete the course due to unforeseen circumstances including but not limited to pregnancy and serious illness Fringe are willing to grant extensions to Students. In exceptional circumstances Fringe may be prepared to roll over a Student’s enrolment to the course in 2019. If a Student requests an extension on medical grounds a doctor’s certificate would need to be provided;
Fringe respectively ask that a Student’s behaviour whilst on the Fringe premises is respectful and considerate to other fellow students, teachers, staff and neighbours;
Fringe respectively request that Students arrive ready to engage in a Yoga class and wear suitable, appropriate clothing;
As part of the teaching method it will be necessary to have a certain degree of interaction with your fellow students and
teachers, including physical contact. We ask that teachers’ instructions are always listened to and followed to the best of your ability and that consent to touch a fellow student is always sought before doing so. This can be done in a casual, informal manner at the time of the practice;
Fringe has an expectation that all Students registering and participating in the FYTT will not be new to Yoga, with a minimum of 2 years previous experience of yoga practice and have their own regular practice with a basic knowledge of the asanas;
It is your responsibility to inform the teachers during the FYTT of any known injuries, ailments, disabilities, medication or anything else that may affect your ability to fully and safely participate in the FYTT and/or a particular session, practice or demonstration;
Please be aware that it is also your responsibility to take preventative measures/action during a session, practice and the FYTT in general, ie BE SENSIBLE, if it hurts, causes any pain or strain do not do it;
If a Student arrives more than 10 minutes late to a session admission may be refused. If you are aware you are going to be late, please let us know so that arrangements can be made; Please ensure you keep Fringe informed of any change to your contact details, including address, phone number and email, this is your responsibility and Fringe shall not be held accountable if you are unaware of important course information if we have been unable to get hold of you or have sent information to the wrong or out of date contact information which is held on file.
