Chopra Certified Instructor Affiliate Program Agreement
To enroll in the Affiliate Program or to update your payment details, you must complete and sign the executable Agreement at the appropriate link below
The Chopra Certified Instructor Affiliate Program (the “Affiliate Program”) is designed to incentivize you to encourage your students, family members, and friends to register for Chopra’s in-person events and online teacher training programs. When you refer others to attend certain events and teacher training programs (each, a “Referee”), you may be eligible to receive referral awards and bonus compensation and your Referees may receive special discounted referral pricing.
To be eligible for referral awards and bonus compensation, if applicable, you must fully enroll in the Affiliate Program by signing this Agreement and completing the attached payment form (“Payment Form”) which is an essential part of this Agreement. You will not be eligible for referral awards or any other compensation for any in-person event or online teacher training program registrations by a Referee unless you are fully enrolled in the Affiliate Program prior to such registration.
How the Affiliate Program Works
For Live Events
When one of your Referees registers for any Chopra in-person event, with the exception of the Chopra Whole Health Retreat at CIVANA Wellness Report & Spa, and pays a tuition of US$1,175 or more, you will receive a $100 referral award. Referral awards for in-person events will be paid following conclusion of the applicable event, provided your Referee has paid in full. Additionally, your Referee will receive special discounted referral pricing for the event to which you referred them.
For Teacher Training Programs
When one of your Referees registers for any Chopra teacher training program you will receive a referral award of 50% of the enrollment price. Referral awards for teacher training programs will be paid following completion of the applicable program, provided your Referee has paid in full.
We currently offer three teacher training programs:
- Chopra Meditation
- Chopra Health
- Chopra Coaching

Referral Bonus for Enrolling Multiple Guests at In-Person Events
In addition to receiving the standard referral awards described above, instructors who refer multiple guests to any of our award-eligible events will receive bonus compensation as follows:
- For referring five (5) or more guests to any single, award-eligible Chopra event, you will receive a $250 bonus and complimentary tuition for that specific event.*
- For referring ten (10) or more guests to any single, award-eligible Chopra event, you will receive a $500 bonus and complimentary tuition for you and a companion for that specific event. *
* Limited to tuition fees and food/beverage only; does not include accommodation, airfare or other transportation; non-transferable.
How to Register a Referral
Your Referee must be a new guest with Chopra; once an individual has registered for an event or teacher training program, subsequent registrations by such individual are ineligible for referral awards or for contribution to achievement of bonus compensation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event your Referee makes multiple purchases as a new guest at the same time, all such purchases are eligible for referral awards and bonus compensation.
Referees are required to call your Program Consultant (or their own if they already have a preexisting relationship with a different Program Consultant) directly to enroll. Your Referee must mention you by name at the time of their registration in order to receive any discounted referral pricing and for you to be eligible to receive any referral awards or bonus compensation with respect to such registration. If your Referee does not mention you by name upon enrollment as a referral source, you will not be eligible to receive a referral award or bonus compensation with respect to such registration and your Referee will not be eligible to receive any discounted referral pricing. Eligibility for any of the foregoing may not be applied retroactively under any circumstance.
As discussed above, in order for any registration by a Referee to be eligible for referral awards and bonus compensation, you must fully enroll in the Affiliate Program by signing this Agreement and completing the Payment Form prior to such registration.
Details About Referral Awards and Bonus Payments
Referral awards and bonus compensation, if applicable, are only paid following completion of the event or teacher training program to which they relate, provided the applicable Referee has paid for such event or teacher training program in full. Payments will be made within five (5) days of the end of the month in which the foregoing criteria are met.
