a) Without observance of a time limit, if the implementation of the trip despite an appropriate warning by the tour operator is disturbed by the traveler persistently. The same applies if the contract partner behaves in an unreasonable manner contrary to the contract. However, the tour operator retains the right to the tour price. Any additional costs for return transportation shall be borne by the disruptive party itself.
b) 3 days before the start of the trip due to failure to reach the minimum number of participants (unless otherwise stated, the minimum number of participants is 8 persons for a retreat), if a minimum number of participants specified in the invitation to tender or other content of the travel contract is not reached.

§ 8 Force majeure
If the trip is significantly impeded, endangered or impaired as a result of force majeure unforeseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract, both the traveler and we may terminate the travel contract. The mutual rights and obligations arise from the statutory provisions. According to this, BeyōndYō can demand an appropriate compensation for travel services rendered or still to be rendered. BeyōndYō does not bear the costs for a return transport of the customer.
§ 9 Terms of payment and set-off and right of retention

(4) As the purchaser, you may only exercise a right of retention if your counterclaim arises from the same purchase contract.
§ 10 Indemnity
You agree to fully indemnify without limitation to any trainer(s), director(s) or contractor(s) against any injury, malpractice, mishap, or accident during any and all interactions with the Company away from, or at the primary place of business for BeyōndYō.
You agree to indemnify and hold BeyōndYō and its affiliates, employees, agents, suppliers and licensors harmless from and against any liabilities, losses, damages or costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred in connection with or arising from any third party allegations, claims, actions, disputes, or demands asserted against any of them as a result of or relating to your Content, your use of the Website and Services or any willful misconduct on your part.
§ 11 Liability
(1) We shall be liable to you in all cases of contractual and non-contractual liability in the event of intent and gross negligence in accordance with the statutory provisions for damages or reimbursement of futile expenses.
(2) In other cases, we shall only be liable – unless otherwise stipulated in para. 3 – in the event of a breach of a contractual obligation, the fulfillment of which is a prerequisite for the proper performance of the contract and on the observance of which you as the customer may regularly rely (so-called cardinal obligation), limited to compensation for the foreseeable and typical damage. In all other cases, our liability is excluded subject to the provision in para. 3.
(3) Our liability for damages arising from injury to life, limb or health and under the Product Liability Act shall remain unaffected by the above limitations and exclusions of liability.
(4) Any damage to the accommodation or the inventory is to be paid by the participants. The person who caused the damage is liable for the full amount. If no participant acknowledges the damage, the costs will be apportioned to all participants. We recommend the conclusion of a private liability insurance.
(5) If scheduled transportation is provided as part of or in addition to a trip and the traveler is issued a corresponding transportation pass for this purpose, we shall provide third-party services to this extent, provided that we expressly refer to this in the travel description and in the travel confirmation. We are therefore not liable for the provision of the transport service itself. Any liability in this case is governed by the transport regulations of these companies. In addition, we are not liable for service disruptions in the area of external services that are only mediated and are expressly identified as such in the travel description.
(6) BeyōndYō works exclusively with trained yoga teachers to ensure the high quality of each trip and class. Nevertheless, any liability for injuries is excluded. The participant takes part in all activities at his own risk. Furthermore, it is at the discretion of each participant which movements, positions and exercises are appropriate to their current physical fitness and yoga level. BeyōndYō cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of information provided by third parties or linked sites.
