The most common-sense liability waiver and photo release you've ever encountered.

Yoga practice is a generally safe method of achieving total health.

An important component is listening to your body, mind, & spirit

and then taking ownership of your actions, including the consequences.

You are encouraged to check with your medical providers for their blessing to practice yoga, especially if you are under special care or have a diagnosed condition, but your practice is always your choice.

In short, when you truly practice yoga, you take all the credit and any of the blame.

Each practice is a recommendation, an invitation to try, to explore, to discover.

You should not take part in any activity that feels uncomfortable to you, is painful, or just doesn't feel "right" for any reason. You are empowered to listen to yourself and your deep inner wisdom.

Yes, the practice encourages pushing your limits, but only doing so with safety and a sense of relative ease.

In participating in any courses, classes, or other offerings, or any taking any suggestions from Michelle (paid or free!), you are assuming full responsibility for the outcome, positive or negative.

Should any negative consequences occur, you are encouraged to explore that experience as an opportunity for learning and growth, rather than a source of anguish and despair.

If you participate in any events held at my home ("The Cloven Hoof," "Under the Oaks," or "Healing United"), you do so with the understanding that the environment is kept as close to natural as possible.

This means you may be subject to such natural negative consequences as bug bites, falling limbs, uneven surfaces, wild animal attacks, and alien invasions (to name just a few - anything can happen!).

While we make every effort to keep our home as safe as possible,

we cannot account for every possible scenario, and accidents do occur!

By joining us here, you agree that you're willing to accept any and all

physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual consequences of doing so.

(In other words, you agree not to sue us or otherwise ask for money, which would negatively impact our ability to do this important work of bringing yoga practice to our community.)

Bad things in life can and will happen to all of us,

but we encourage all students to see opportunities for growth

in the positive as well as the negative.

As always, use your best judgment!


We take pictures and videos at ALL of our events to share with you and the world.


By letting us take your picture and/or video, you agree to allow us to use it in any marketing, whether that is on social media, our website, in print, videos, TV, radio, etc. If you don't want your photo taken (and used however we see fit), that's no problem! Just make sure you tell us.
