Terms and Conditions for Watsu Classes
WABA Classes are structured in levels. Some classes may have pre-requisites, such as Watsu 1 should be completed before taking Watsu 2. It is only the credits that are registered in WABA registry that count. If you are missing your previous credits on WABA Registry, please contact the previous instructor.
Due to the characteristics of the bodywork, if you have infectious disease or mental illness, you are not eligible to join the class. If you are concerned about your physical conditions or handicaps, please consult with us beforehand as we will try to see if we can help you to study the class.
Finalizing Class to Open
Every class has a minimum number of participants to open the class. We will notify you when the enrollments reach that number. After your enrollment, please do not arrange your trip yet and wait for us to finalize the opening. We will finalize 1 month prior to the class if not before.
Some participants may cancel after signing up and we may fall short of the minimum number, but we won’t cancel the class after finalizing. We will arrange somehow to make the class happen.
When we finalize the class, we will send you an invoice for the non-refundable deposit of JPY30000 by email. Please proceed to pay online right away and start arranging your trip. The rest of the tuition is payable only in Japanese Yen cash onsite.
Audit Discount (40% off) If you are taking the class for the second time within 3 years (if you have taken the same class with us or with another instructor before), you get 40% discount on the tuition (not on facility fee nor lodging fee).
Exception. Please note that the discount will not apply when the class is filled. Also, the discount will not apply to the class with a visiting instructor.
Cancellation for your convenience
If you cancel your enrollment after finalizing, your deposit will not be refunded.
If you cancel or whatever your personal reasons after the class starts, the tuition will not be refunded.
Your facility fee and lodging fee can be refunded for the days that have not been used.
Cancellation due to natural disasters and others
If you can’t come to the class due to a natural disaster or traffic disruption, the deposit will not be refunded. If you come late, tuition will stay the same but the facility fee and lodging fee can be refunded for the days that have not been used.
If everyone cannot come for those reasons and the class cannot happen, you will get fully refunded.
If we can’t do the class due to a natural disaster or facility default, you will be refunded fully, but there will be no compensation for your travel expenses.
