New Student Waiver

I'm jazzed to have you as a client. The info below will help you make the most of your yoga session and clarify my role as teacher. I have completed a thorough yoga teacher training and have been studying and using essential oils for more than 4 years. Even with me in the role of teacher, you are responsible for your safety and well-being. The awareness you bring to your mat is fundamental to your practice. It is your responsibility to inform me of any limitations you may have, so I may offer variations and adaptations.

All exercise programs involve a risk of injury. By choosing to participate in mindful movement and yoga, you voluntarily assume a certain risk of injury. These guidelines will help to reduce your risk of injury:

  • Listen to and follow instructions carefully.
  • Breathe smoothly and continuously as you move and hold postures.
  • Work gently, respecting your body's abilities and its limits.
  • Do not move beyond muscle tension to pain.
  • Do not perform postures or movements that are painful.
  • Ask if you are unsure how to perform a certain movement or would like a modification.

It's always advisable to chat with your physician before taking on any exercise or wellness program. Yoga + Oils classes are designed to help you tune into your overall wellness and are not intended to replace the care of a doctor. Ideas and information exchanged during classes are intended to be educational in nature and offered in the spirit of encouraging individuals to become more familiar with and conscious of their own overall wellness. Our work together seeks to create balance in your mind and body through mindfulness and movement techniques that may include strength and flexibility, using the breath, meditation, and physical postures.

All students will be required to complete a Health Disclosure and Release waiver before attending any classes or workshops with Yoga + Oils and/or Shelby Kruse.

If online forms are your jam, here you go. Paper forms are also available on location. Please know I treat all information provided here, in conversation, or practice as privileged and confidential and will not release it without your consent. Ever.
