What happens if I miss a session or want extra help?
We understand that it’s not always possible to make all the training days in full – for instance, if you have already planned a wedding, or a house move etc. Pre-planned, pre-authorised absence is not a problem, because Yogafurie offers catch-up afternoons. If you can’t make a course session, then you must attend catch-up afternoons until we’ve covered all the content missed.
We must stress that catch-up is not an alternative to attending course sessions. You will be expected to attend all sessions, only using catch-up for major life events that you simply could not reschedule.
Catch-up is often the Thursday and Friday afternoon, 2-5PM, in the week after a course weekend. Please inform the studio if you want to come to catch-up, so that we can prepare content.
You don’t have to miss a session to make use of catch-up: if you just want extra help, let us know and we can go over what you need in catch-up time.
You can only pass the course if you have a complete attendance record, and in exceptional circumstances you can use catch-up to cover missed content.

The topics listed above weave together whenever we learn about practicing and teaching Yoga. Everything we learn will be analysed in terms of how we can communicate it bet to others, what it means for our physiology, how it affects us energetically and where in the traditional philosophy backdrop it appears.
