Terms & Policies



Because we keep these trainings smaller in order to provide a deeply personalized experience for each person, space is limited for Bhavana School of Yoga Teacher Trainings. In order to reserve your spot, please submit your application along with your $500 non-refundable deposit. Submission options for your application and initial deposit are as follows:

  1. The application can be submitted online here.

  2. Your deposit can be submitted online using a credit or debit card here. Please note that there is a 3% convenience fee added, in order to cover the card processing fees. If you would like to avoid this fee, you can pay by check; please make it out to “Bhavana School of Yoga” and mail to: Bhavana School of Yoga, 6290 Salk Rd, Carson City, NV 89706.

    *Please note: BOTH the application and the non-refundable deposit are required to reserve your spot.
