Fee does not include recommended or suggested books and videos, round trip airfare or ground transportation to and from Ancient Yoga Center. In addition, Ancient Yoga Center cannot accommodate extra night(s) lodging and meals before or after the event. The IIQTC can however provide suggestions for reasonable lodging and meals nearby.

In addition, we request that participants do not call Ancient Yoga Center to check on lodging/meals for extra nights, as the nights' stays are contractually agreed upon in advance. The retreat center does not accept reservations from our individual attendees. Thank you!

3 and 6 Month Payment Plans Available

We recognize the flexibility that is sometimes needed in meeting registration costs for trainings. To support this, we have made available 3-Month and 6-Month Pay Plans. To take advantage of one of the available payment plan options, simply register as usual. When you choose your preferred Lodging type, you will be taken to the Shopping Cart where you will see the payment plan options. Simply choose the one that works best for you.

Your payments will be evenly dispersed over 3 months or 6 months depending on which plan you choose. Keep in mind that best options expire. Once you enter your credit card information and submit your order, your first payment will be charged immediately. Each subsequent payment will be automatically charged to your credit card in 30-day increments for the duration of your selected plan. To insure that your transactions proceed smoothly, we recommend that you inform your bank or credit card company when making any large purchase with your credit card to ensure that charges are not declined as suspicious activity.

About Your Stay at Ancient Yoga Center -- Dietary Considerations

Ancient Yoga Center offers fresh, tasty, lacto-vegetarian selections that may include milk and cheese, but do not include eggs. In addition, their chef always provides a delicious option for those on a vegan diet. Meals can be enjoyed in the dining hall located on the first floor of the Ancient Yoga Center, or outside in the shade of the majestic cedar and live oak trees.

Fresh brewed hot coffee, delicious authentic Indian chai and assorted hot teas are served with breakfast. Lunch and dinner menus reflect different cultures. One day you may enjoy an authentic Indian meal, and the next day, Mexican or Italian fare. Homemade yogurt and bread are prepared often.

Fruit and an assortment of hot teas are available throughout the day in the snack area.
