Terms & Conditions

Welcome to EmbodiMe

We are so happy to have you as part of our online family x

The following are terms and conditions that will help you to take care of yourself as you practice and understand how the online platform works.

The classes and workshops are online which means that you will be by yourself when practising. This is wonderful as it can help you to go to a new depth in yourself. However, it is also worth thinking about how to take care of yourself should you have an injury, perhaps be triggered by as aspect of class or react in any way emotionally, mentally or physically.

All teachers are caring, well trained and brilliant at what they teach. They are also adept at teaching you how to trust yourself. So, please make sure you do. You are the best expert on you. If anything doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. If you need support, reach out for it. If you need a rest, take it. When you are practicing at home, your wellbeing is your responsibility.

Cost of classes, courses, workshops

All costs are outlined on the website for each modality.

Purchasing classes

Once you have purchased a class it is available for you to use as a recording to you for seven days. If you have purchased a live class and for some reason it is not recorded, you can request access to another recording.

Joining Live and/or Recorded Classes

You are welcome to join in any classes that are available for casual use. There is a mix of live classes and recorded content. Some content is for Members only. To join the EmbodiMe Membership, please see our Pricing and Membership page.

Accessing Live and Recorded Classes

All the live classes, pre-records and recordings are accessible through corresponding dates on the Online Studio calendar.

Timetable

Although there is a regular timetable, EmbodiMe reserves the right to cancel or change classes without notice.

Class changes and/or cancellations

Regular classes may be put on hold with notice or cancelled without notice during certain times of the year, such as school holidays, public holidays, festive seasons, professional development, staff leave and/or illness.

Courses

Specialist courses are available for purchase through the website. Once you have purchased a course, you will have access to it for one month from the purchase date. Courses are published throughout the year as they are released.

Practice within your body’s range

Everyone’s body is unique: anatomically, mentally, emotionally. Please listen to your body in each of the classes and each of the poses. If you feel pain or discomfort, come out of the pose or modify it so you don’t hurt yourself. This is really important and forms the basis for developing a loving relationship with yourself – for becoming embodied.

Know your needs

Some days we feel full of life, exuberant, energised. Other days we can feel uninspired, exhausted, overwhelmed. Choose classes that suit your needs or maybe take a day off when you need to. If we want to move towards feeling empowered, the first place to start is to recognise and honour our own needs.

Organise your space

Most students tell us that if they have a dedicated yoga space in their house, they feel more motivated to join classes regularly and that this space helps them to be really present in the class. Ensure this space, or any space in which you practice, is safe for you to practice freely without injury. Ensure you have a good mat and props that support you effectively.

Medical support

It is recommended you get a medical examination before you begin with EmbodiMe and following your doctor’s instructions.

Support person

It is great to have a support person who knows they are your support person – someone who you can call if you need help in any way – and know that they are available to you if you are practising yoga and need someone to help you for any reason.

Arriving late to class

We don’t mind if you are late to class; however, it is your responsibility to follow your body’s needs for warming up. The teacher may not realise you are late to class and cannot adjust the class to suit.

Emotional release

Yoga can trigger emotional release. Many find that the release is lovely and they feel balanced and refreshed at the end of class. If, however, you feel after class like you are not coping with anything that has come up for you, please contact your support person. If they are not available for some reason, please reach out to a loved one or a support service such as Beyond Blue 1300 22 4636 or Lifeline 13 11 14 in Australia or, if you are practising in another country, please ensure you know who to call for support should that need arise.

Playlists

Some classes have playlists that the teachers create. The playlists are available to Full Members only.

Technical issues

All classes are streamed through Zoom. When you participate in the class from your house, Zoom is playing the class through your Wi-Fi, which means that if you are having connection issues it is most likely to be a Wi-Fi issue at your end. We do constant site maintenance to ensure that we are providing the best product possible. However, some technical issues are inevitable and others are outside of our control. Please let us know if there is something that could be improved. We do not provide refunds for occasional technical issues but will credit you for any class you have purchased that you are unable to complete due to technical issues that are EmbodiMe’s reposnsibility.

Trauma Informed Practice

All classes and courses with Liz are Trauma Informed. Liz is trauma trained, has studied Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and is completing a Masters in Counselling. If you have experienced trauma, please consult your therapeutic practitioner before undertaking any new practice. Some participants find one:one sessions really helpful to their online practice. If you feel like you need one:one sessions please contact liz@embodime.com.au.

Yoga Series Recordings

As an EmbodiMe Full Member, you have access to the ‘Yoga Series’ recordings upon membership, which pre-recorded session courses that specialise in specific practices. For example, there is a Foundational Yoga Series, which is 6 pre-recorded sessions building a yoga practice; there is a Sleep Yoga Series, which is 6 pre-recorded sessions to help you to create healthy sleep; there is an Anxiety Yoga Series, which is 6 pre-recorded sessions to help you to understand and allay anxiety.

It is recommended that you complete the Foundational course as soon as you can to help you to build a safe yoga practice and the other series are available to you as you choose to undertake them. They are not available for casual purchase.

Courses

Specialist courses can be accessed as part of your Full Membership. Courses are published throughout the year as they are released.

Waiting period – course availability

After a period of 1 month of continuous membership, you will be able to start accessing courses. You will be able to access one course per month as they become available. Once you have access to a course, it remains open to you for as long as you are a member. If you cease your membership, then the courses cease to be available to you. If you re-start your membership, the standard 1 month waiting period begins again. If there is a course that you would like to undertake before your waiting period is complete, you may purchase the course separately.
