TIGRESS YOGA TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Attendance at any of our events is automatic confirmation that you accept the terms of these terms & conditions.
Please note that the subject matter of our live events can can access unresolved emotions or issues around traumas and sexuality, so they can heal. We provide you with a safe space to meet these parts of yourself and to work through these places but further assistance may be required. Although Tigress Yoga is intended to be a therapeutic practise, it does not replace the need for individual therapy, especially in cases of previous traumas. If any issues arise for you as a student or participant, it is your responsibility to seek extra support and assistance as required. We are here to support your healing and integration but it’s important that you ask for support when you need it.
If you have a physical injury and are unsure whether our services are suitable for you, clearance from your medical practitioner is required. By following the instructions carefully, it is highly unlikely that you could hurt yourself during participation in Tigress Yoga® or any of our events. We do ask that each woman take responsibility for herself to ensure that she always moves in integrity with the current state of her body. We are unable to provide detailed, personal modifications to you during a group class. If you have an injury and decide to attend our events, you are agreeing to monitor your own movements and take care of your body. Always err on the side of caution and be gentle in cases of injury. We do not encourage an approach of pushing yourself or forcing your body in any way. If you are unsure about whether you are in the right physical condition to book into our events, please get clearance from your medical professional first.
Pregnancy: It is your responsibility to let your Instructor know before an event begins, if you are pregnant & you understand that no responsibility will be taken for any health issues as a result of your participation in Tigress Yoga classes, workshops or events. For pregnancy, yoga is generally not recommended during the first trimester. However, if you have medical clearance and/or you feel confident to do this practise anyway, you are welcome to do so at your own risk. Participation in classes that are not specific pregnancy Tigress Yoga classes, means the Instructor will not be able to guide you with a specialised pre-natal focus during a general class. If you discuss this with your Instructor before booking into an event, and you feel confident to guide yourself, you are welcome to do so at your own risk. We have found that Tigress Yoga is incredible birth preparation for many women.
Attendance at any of our events is automatic confirmation that you accept the terms of this confidentiality agreement.
You understand that as a condition of your participation in Tigress Yoga courses, classes and events, you agree to keep confidential all methods, techniques, ideas, knowledge, information, manners of delivery, instructions, principles and practices of Tigress Yoga®. You understand that Tigress Yoga has been developed over many years and is highly refined to maintain it’s sacredness and connection to every woman who practices it. You agree to uphold the trust between yourself and Dévashi Shakti of Tigress Yoga by not divulging, publishing, recording, giving away or otherwise sharing the principles, practices and techniques that you learn as a result of your participation in any Tigress Yoga class or workshops. You understand that what is taught is for your personal growth only and you agree to not teach this approach as a practitioner of any kind without without having undertaken intensive Tigress Yoga Teacher Training or without direct permission from Dévashi Shakti. Although you may recognise basic elements of this practise from elsewhere; the concept, approach and format is unique to Devashi, her training & her many years of embodied research. We ask that you respect this offering and we encourage you to discover your own unique offering, or join our team for professional training if you wish to teach this practise.
We also ask that you keep the identities and personal stories or information of any other participants sacred to the Tigress Yoga sanctuary space. We ask that you never share another woman’s personal experience or share her identity, without her permission.
Tigress Yoga reserves the right to use any photographic or video materials for promotional purposes.
We highly recommend full attendance and commitment to every class in your Gentle or Dynamic series to get the most out of your practice. If you miss any class during your course, that class cannot be made up at another time. We aim to create a very safe, deep and consistent space for all women attending classes and we’ve found that casual attendance or dropping into another class is often disruptive to group energy. the Instructor is still there and available to teach what you signed up for, even if you don’t attend.
If you do not wish to commit to a full course of Tigress Yoga or would like to experience it personally first, we highly recommend booking into a casual class or a workshop.
