Pattie at play

Yoga Rebates Available!

A big well done to Yoga Australia for persevering. We now have 4 private health funds that have confirmed they will provide rebates for yoga classes. Take advantage:

Australian Unity (must have letter from GP & depends on your level of cover); BUPA (letter signed by GP required); CBHS (Dr’s certification required); Grand United Corporate Health (yesiree!).

Your yoga teacher needs to provide a printed receipt with: ABN, address, style of yoga, number of classes paid.  Some funds may require the teacher to have a provider number but I rang Aust Unity and they said “no need”.
