The rest of the payment, you are asked to pay within a week after the very end of the course (we like people to pay when they know what they pay for, so that payment is more connected to gratitude and less to being a duty). If you prefer paying it earlier, this is welcome as well.
‘The regret period’: If you change your mind within 7 days after sending the deposit and before the course has actually begun, you will receive your deposit back. The deposit becomes non-refundable 7 days after you register

In case there are less than: 8 participants for a course, BodyVoice Alive Ltd reserves the right to cancel the course no later than 5 days before the course is due to start. In such case we will send you back the pre-payment within 2 weeks from the cancellation announcement.
This is to care for the balance of our trainers’ efforts in providing the course.
If you decide to leave the training at anytime before the end time of the course, we ask you to contribute as if you had been present for the whole course. This is to care for our energy in organising a course, as well as acknowledging that this place could have been offered to someone else.
