If YOGA SEEDS has to make any material changes relating to the Booking it shall notify the Client forthwith. YOGA SEEDS shall endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum and shall seek to offer the Client arrangements as close to the original as is reasonably possible in the circumstances. Where such alternative is not acceptable to the Client acting reasonably and in good faith, YOGA SEEDS shall refund to the Client the price paid according to the Booking.
