    If a Spinning Babies® Workshop, Certified Parent Educator (SpBCPE) Training or Aware Practitioner (AP) Workshop is Cancelled by Spinning Babies®
    If cancellation of the event is deemed necessary, based on local health guidelines or travel restrictions, participants will be notified as soon as possible via email, and the full registration fee will be refunded. Participants are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and related expenses.

    If you Need to Cancel Due to COVID-19 Exposure

    Please refrain from attending a workshop if you have symptoms that may be related to COVID-19. 

    • Most common symptoms: fever, dry cough, tiredness
    • Less common symptoms: aches and pains, sore throat, diarrhea, conjunctivitis, headache, loss of taste or smell, a rash on skin, or discoloration of fingers or toes

    Those who are experiencing cold or allergy symptoms, which may be unrelated to COVID-19, a negative COVID-19 test is an appropriate measure before attending a workshop.

    If you are unable to attend your scheduled workshop due to having COVID-19 or recent exposure, you may use your paid fee towards a future advanced training or Spinning Babies® conference within a year or a year of lifting the travel restriction, if that is the cause of missing the training. 

    If a participant cancellation occurs due to any reason unrelated to COVID-19, the cancellation policy for each Spinning Babies® event will apply.

    Participants are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and related expenses and Spinning Babies® is unable to refund these expenses.


    The substitute must fit all prerequisites.

    No substitutions after June 28th, 2021. Please note this.
    Substitution requests require giving us the full contact information of the person to whom you are giving or selling your registration.

    Arrange a substitution by including your full name in your email, and include the full contact information of the substitute in an email to info@SpinningBabies.com. Write as soon as possible so they have time to receive communication from us to verify eligibility and get confirmation of their place in the workshop.

    Make sure your substitute is eligible! If your substitute is not eligible, follow the refund schedule. You must work out the payment details with your substitute yourselves or it will be considered a cancellation and charged according to the cancellation schedule.
