MEMBERSHIP REFUND POLICY
PAST LIVES offers refunds if membership is cancelled within 5 days of the charge. After five days, PAST LIVES does not offer membership refunds except for specific events, such as disability or death. A 10% processing fee will be assessed for all membership refunds. Please send refund inquiries to pastlivesllc@gmail.com.

CLASS CANCELLATION POLICY

Please send refund or rescheduling requests to pastlivesllc@gmail.com.

Although we make best effort to accommodate any late-notice cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances, PAST LIVES is not responsible for giving refunds for classes, workshops, or other programming missed due to illness, emergencies, or events beyond our control with less than 72 hour notice. A $20 processing fee will be assessed for all cancelled or rescheduled individual class registrations.

PAST LIVES reserves the right to cancel programming at any time and will notify students via email and/or phone. In the case of a class cancellation, PAST LIVES will notify class takers no less than 24 hours before the scheduled class. In the rare event that a class is cancelled by PAST LIVES, a full refund will be provided. If a class should fail to meet minimum enrollment 5 days prior to the scheduled meeting, the class will be cancelled.

If a student misses a single class in a series or portion of a class, PAST LIVES and its instructors are not  responsible for make-up sessions.  Students should inform PAST LIVES as soon as they are aware of a session they will miss. In some cases the student may need to sign up for 1:1 instruction time in order to catch up. 

CANCELLING DAYS OF BUILDING

Group programs must be canceled at least two weeks in advance in order to receive a full refund. There will be no refunds or transfers if the class is cancelled with less than two weeks notice or if there is a failure to attend. PAST LIVES reserves the right to cancel programming at any time and will notify students via email and/or phone.   In the rare event of an PAST LIVES-initiated cancellation, a full refund or credit will be issued.  A $20 processing fee will be applied to group class cancellations two weeks+ out unless it is rescheduled. This fee can be applied to future cost if rescheduling occurs within two weeks.
