IKYU is not interested in treating you like a yoga consumer, they are interested in you becoming a good yogi and the best yoga instructor. The IKYU team is not part of the Yoga Alliance (through the messages platform you can ask for the article they wrote to explain this decision with further detail). For that reason and taking into account that they own the property where the training is taking place, they want and can offer the lowest cost so that it is accessible and beneficial for as many people as possible. Do not be confused by the accessible price with a lack of quality. All the contrary, IKYU assures you that this is one of the most complete and best quality yoga instructor training of all!

The student will only receive such certification if he/she complies with the attendance to all of the scheduled sessions and if he/she complies with the personal, conceptual, technical skills, and attributes that are required as a minimum to be a yoga instructor.
The aforementioned skills and attributes revolve around being able to convey in a clear, loving, and compassionate way the own learning for spiritual development through yoga. It implies that in order to receive the certificate, paying the entire course is not enough, in fact, it is necessary to comply with the academic and personal conditions according to the standards established by the academic director.
If you have any concerns about this please, do not hesitate to consult IKYU before your registration because no refund will be given for not complying with the specific conditions. The standards established by the academic director, to know, are:

The order of the sessions may be changed if it is required for the methodological development of the training. There are two free days during the training where IKYU recommends the participants to leave the property and visit Cali or the nearby rivers, as they consider these two free days necessary and part of the training.
The training starts very early in the morning and ends late at night, that is why IKYU asks you to come one day before the training starts and leave one day after the training is over. Those two extra days outside the training, the arrival day and departure day, are only for the stay and they do not include food, classes, or transportation.
