Even blissful yoga instructors and studio owners operate within a coMplex legal landscape just like any other business.
Here we offer a smart and easy way to learn about the legal implications of your practice.
We understand how overwhelming these issues might seem, so we also provide straightforward and practical action steps you can take to serve your students, protect your practice, and grow your business.

A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT GOES INTO PLANNING RETREATS. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE YOURS RUN SMOOTHLY.
We care about the yoga community and all who contribute to spread its love around the world. As a law firm that has many clients in the Health and Wellness Industry, we hold a core value of assisting community projects that aim to make people happier, healthier and more successful.
While yoga is a passion for all who practice it, it is also very much a business and a rapidly growing industry. Recognizing this, we created the opportunity to educate yogis about the law as it applies to their practice and give them best legal practices to be free to focus on what they love.
