Hi! It is a pleasant surprise to find you here.

Your privacy is important to us. Really.

This privacy statement provides information about the personal information that the Akila Yoga Institute (hereafter Akila) collects, and the ways in which Akila uses personal information.

It is important that you read this document, because when browsing our site, we assume that you agree with our privacy policy and our terms and conditions.

If you are under 13, you need the approval of your parents or guardians to create an account on our site.


Collection of personal information



We will always ask for your explicit consent when we request some of your personal data for any specific purpose, such as the sending of news and promotions through our newsletter, and we will always specify why we ask for any particular data.

You will receive a confirmation and copy of the personal information you provide.

If for some reason you do not receive it and you want it, you can ask for it through any means of contact that we offer on our site, or by replying to any of our emails.

There are 3 main ways we can collect your data:

1) Through Cookies. Click here to know what they are and how they work.

2) If you ask us to send you information. This typically involves your email and name, and sometimes some medical detail (for example, what type of pain or diagnosis you have) so that we can send you emails referring to a topic related to Yoga or therapeutic Yoga.

3) If you buy one of our products / services. This implies your name, mail, and any important information regarding the particular service or product.

4) To comment. We want you to put your name and email (we only show your name in the comments). We do not want anonymous comments, this encourages more useful and gentle comments 🙂

Once you provide your name and / or email (or any other personal information) in the email subscription box, Akila will send you emails with information relevant to Yoga and related therapies or philosophies, including information that markets or advertises products and / or services related to Yoga, information of charges (if you have bought something) or any other information pertinent to your use of this website.

Akila considers many things related to Yoga, so we hope that this term will be used in the widest possible sense.

Data minimization:

We will only ask you for the data strictly necessary to carry out the required purpose or activity, for example, our newsletter typically only requires your email and name. We do not require your phone number or the name of your pet. All due respect and affection for your pet …

We may ask for information regarding your medical condition in order to give you information and offer you adequate services according to your specific situation.


Limitation of data conservation:

We will only keep the data you provide for as long as necessary and no more, for example, if you wish to delete your account at our site, your email and associated user will be removed from the database, the same way if you decide to leave the newsletter, your email and name will be eliminated from it.

Do not worry: all our communications provide a link at the end, so you can leave the mailing list.

If you want us to delete or change the information collected, you just have to ask and it will be done.
