What to Expect

Group Yoga Classes

We practice at Yoseikan Anderson Karate Studio as a group.  The studio has a beautiful bamboo floor and mirrors.  We start with a centering meditation and sing the sound of OM 3 times.  Singing OM gives us an opportunity to recognize that we are connected to our environment and one another.  Our actions have a ripple effect on the world and we acknowledge that our thoughts create our world.  I will do my best to create a safe and relaxing environment for you to learn yoga.  I guide students through vocal cues and will give hands on assists when necessary.  Classes are tailored for the group of students who come.  For example, if there are a lot of sore shoulders we will do poses to create freedom and strength in the shoulders.  If students need a fast paced class we will do more vinyasa - a linking of poses.  Sometimes we move slowly in a restorative style, especially if it's been a draining and exhausting week.  Every class ends in Savasana - a final relaxation pose that gives us an opportunity to really incorporate what we've learned on a cellular level.  You can purchase a class package in person or via PayPal on the Classes page.

Private Energy Sessions

I use a combination of Reiki, Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki, and Integrative Quantum Mechanics.  I have been studying energy work in depth since 2006.  Most people experience a deep calmness and mental clarity after a session.  Before a session begins I sit down with you and we have a brief discussion of what it is that you most hope to gain from the energy work.  During the session, you will rest on a massage table, fully clothed, and covered in a warm blanket while gentle music plays in the background.  Most people like to close their eyes and simply receive the energy.  At times I may ask questions or offer you information that comes through.  My hands hover a few inches above your body and I do not need to touch you.  I usually walk around you so I can work on a different energy centers within the body.  Some people experience a feeling of warmth or coolness, a few even see colors, and some feel nothing and maybe even fall asleep!  After the session, there will be some time to discuss any questions or thoughts that may have come up for you. 

Yoga Class Designed for You

Working with you, I will create a class just for you!  I'm here to empower you to make positive changes in your life that facilitate you on your yoga journey.  In our yoga class together, I will help you define your desired outcome, create the yoga sequencing, and explore alternative options to certain poses.  We will begin a dialogue via e-mail and possibly Skype.  I will create a sequence of yoga poses just for you in a pdf and video format that is delivered straight to your inbox or available for download.  Turn around time is usually 3-4 days, this time can vary so I will confirm with you upon receiving your e-mail.

Tarot Reading

My tarot readings do not predict the future.  They offer you a glimpse of the energies that surround a situation.  We have free will and ultimately create our destiny through our actions and choices.  A tarot reading is like receiving a weather forecast.  For example, if the meteorologist tells you there will be rain, you have the choice to bring an umbrella and stay dry.  Or forgo the umbrella and get wet.  It's up to us what we do with the information received.

To request a Tarot reading with me, you will be asked to pay via PayPal and submit your request in the e-mail form provided.  You will receive a confirmation e-mail from me within 48 hours after I receive your request and let you know when you can expect your reading.  I will review your question ensuring that it is in line with my code of ethics.  If the question needs to be rephrased I will consult with you.  If we cannot agree on a question I will offer you a refund.  I retain the right to refuse to do a reading on particular topics like, certain health or legal matters.  

I use a 5 card spread and will send the reading to you in a pdf form along with a picture of the cards drawn - I use the Radiant Rider-Waite deck.  Your reading will be e-mailed back to the e-mail submitted in the request form.   If you need clarification on any of the cards that were drawn you can ask for guidance.  If you have additional questions that were not a part of the original request or wish to have additional cards drawn, you will be invited to purchase another Tarot reading.  Please note that readings are only done for those 18 and older.

workshops & Retreats

The utmost of care and time is taken to choose amazing facilities for our workshops and retreats.  I put a lot of heart, time, and effort into preparing for these events.  I take into consideration where you are coming from - knowledge of the subject, physical well-being, and mindset to offer you the best possible experience.  It is important that you review my code of ethics below.  At times there are conditions that are out of my control that affect a workshop or retreat.  I do my best to make it all work out to serve you best.  Occasionally, non-refundable deposits will be asked for to secure your spot.  These are non-refundable because I must put a deposit on the facility and cannot get that money back.  If you have any questions or concerns please let me know before the event so I can support you in the best possible way.  If you must cancel and you have paid in full, a replacement must be found to take your spot, otherwise there can be no refund.

Refunds

Refunds will only be provided upon mutual agreement when the actual expiration date for class packages has not expired, or the Energy session, Yoga Class Designed for you, or Tarot reading has not been performed.  For example, if you and I, Irena Miller, cannot agree on a meeting time for an energy or yoga session, or we cannot agree on a question for the Tarot spread and I, Irena Miller, have not started your actual session or reading, you may be offered a refund.

However, if your Yoga class, Energy session, or Tarot reading has been performed and completed, there will be no refund. This is because I pour my heart and soul into your session and I invest a significant amount of time and energy into your situation.  I will make my best attempt to clarify any questions you may have and give you the best advice of which I am capable.

 

My Code of Ethics

  • I will strive at all times to offer you the best advice of which I am capable.
  • I recommend you seek competent medical or psychological assistance from a healthcare professional if you have any disease, illness, or disorder.
  • I recommend you seek competent financial assistance from a banker, broker, or financial consultant before you make any financial transactions.
  • I recommend you seek competent legal assistance from a qualified attorney-at-law if you have any legal problems.
  • I will provide guidance and insight in your Yoga class, Energy session, or Tarot reading, but you have the free will to choose whether you will follow this guidance or not. You are therefore responsible for your actions following your session with me.
  • My intention is to offer inspiration, encouragement, give hope, and identify options for future behavior.
  • Your Yoga session, Workshop, Retreat, Energy session, or Tarot reading is a complete service in itself. You are not required to purchase anything else.

Privacy

We all hate spam!  Your privacy is important to me and your e-mail is treated with the utmost respect.  It means a lot to me that you invite me into your inbox.  

You will only receive e-mails from Irena Miller/Grace Yoga Center that you have requested, like the weekly newsletter.  On the odd occasion I may send out a special e-mail to let you know about closures due to inclement weather or special promotions on retreats, yoga classes, energy sessions, or readings.  Never any worries, you always have the option to 'unsubscribe' from my e-mail list at any time and you will no longer receive updates.  I will miss you and wish you well on your journey!

  1. I understand that physical activity and exercise are inherently risky and dangerous activities. Inherent risks are risks that cannot be eliminated completely regardless of the care and precautions taken by Releasees.

 

  1. I am fully aware of the risks and hazards inherent in participating in Activities and I voluntarily, knowingly and freely assume all risks associated with participating in Activities, including, but not limited to, bruising, muscle strains, joint sprains, falls, injuries, illnesses, infections, paralysis and even death.

    This includes injury or damage sustained while and/or resulting from using any premises or facility, or using any equipment (whether owned, operated, or provided to me by Releasees or otherwise), including injuries or damages arising out of the negligence of Releasees, whether active or passive, or any of Releasees’ affiliates, employees, coaches, agents, representatives, successors, and assigns. I agree that I am voluntarily participating in Activities and assume all risk of injury, illness, damage, or loss to me or my property that might result, whether arising out of the negligence of Releasees or otherwise.
     

  2. I represent and warrant to Releasees that I am able to safely participate in Activities and have no medical condition that would make my participation in Activities more hazardous. I acknowledge that I have had a physical examination and have been given a physician’s permission to participate, or that I have decided to participate in Activities without the approval of a physician.

 

  1. I consent to medical care and transportation in order to obtain treatment in the event of injury to me as Host, volunteers or medical professionals may deem appropriate and understand that this Waiver & Release extends to any liability arising out of or in any way connected with the medical treatment and transportation provided in the event of an emergency and/or injury.

 

  1. I agree to observe and obey all posted rules and warnings, to follow any instructions or directions given by Host through its employees, coaches, representatives or agents and to abide by any decision of any Host staff or volunteers relative to my ability to safely participate in or attend Activities.

 

  1. I understand and agree that I am expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times while at Activities and to obey all local, state and federal civil and criminal laws while participating in or attending Activities. This includes, generally, respect for other people, equipment, facilities or property. Host may dismiss me, without refund, should my behavior endanger the safety of or negatively affect Activities or any person, facility or property.

 

  1. I agree not to consume alcohol prior to Activities that involve physical exercise or activity, or use any medicine or substance that will inhibit my mental or physical ability to safely participate in such Activities. If I choose to consume alcoholic beverages after such Activities, I will do so responsibly and only if I am over the age of twenty-one (21).

 

  1. I understand and agree that the Releasees are not responsible for any personal item or property that is lost, damaged or stolen at or during Activities.

 

  1. I consent to the use of my image in photographs, motion pictures or recordings, whether altered or unaltered, taken at Activities for use in Host advertising, marketing or promotion and I waive and release any right to compensation and/or damages with respect to the use, display, distribution or other publication of such photographs, motion pictures or recordings.

 

  1. I assign to Host all rights, title, and interest in any and all photographs, motion pictures, recordings or other records of Activities I may take or capture. Host grants to me a limited, non-exclusive right and license to use, for non-commercial purposes only, any and all photographs, motion pictures, recordings or other records of Activities I may take or capture.

 

  1. I understand and agree that all purchases for Activities or other goods or services of any kind are final and non-refundable.

 

  1. I indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees from any loss, liability, damage or cost they may incur due to my participation in Activities, whether or not caused by the active or passive negligence of the Releasees. I also agree to indemnify the Releasees from any and all third party claims caused in whole or in part by my negligent or intentional acts or omissions.

  2. I release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the Releasees from any and all liability to me, my personal representatives, assigns, heirs and next of kin, for any and all claims, causes of action, obligations, lawsuits, charges, complaints, controversies, damages, costs or expenses of whatsoever kind, nature, or description, whether direct or indirect, in law or in equity, in contract or in tort, or otherwise, whether known or unknown, arising out of or connected with my (or my minor child’s/ward’s) attendance or participation in Activities, whether or not caused by the active or passive negligence of the Releasees.

    This waiver and release of liability includes, without limitation, injuries which may occur as a result of (a) my use of any exercise equipment or facilities which may malfunction or break; (b) improper maintenance of any exercise equipment, premises or facilities; (c) negligent instruction or supervision, including but not limited to Activities; (d) negligent hiring, training, supervision, or retention of coaches, employees or volunteers; and/or (e) slipping or tripping and falling while on any portion of a premises or while traveling to or from Activities, including injuries resulting from Releasees’ or anyone else’s negligent inspection or maintenance of the facility or premises.

 

  1. I understand and acknowledge that the laws of the State of Ohio shall apply to all matters relating to this Waiver regardless of the Activity location, that the exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute with the Releasees resides in state or federal court in Ohio and I expressly consent to the exercise of personal jurisdiction in the State of Ohio in connection with any dispute with the Releasees arising from my participation or attendance of any Activity.

 

  1. I expressly agree that the Waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the law of the State of Ohio, and that if any portion is held invalid, it is agreed that it will be severed and the balance shall continue in full legal force and effect. This release is not intended as an attempted release of claims of gross negligence or intentional acts by Releasees.

 

[SIGNATURE ON FOLLOWING PAGE]I acknowledge that I have carefully read this waiver and release and fully understand that it is a release of liability, express assumption of risk and indemnity agreement. I am aware and agree that by executing this waiver and release, I am giving up my right to bring a legal action or assert a claim against Releasees for their negligence, or for any defective product used while participating in Activities. I have read and voluntarily signed the waiver and release and further agree that no oral representations, statements, or inducement apart from the foregoing written agreement have been made.

 

By entering my name and the date below, I am providing the electronic equivalent of my signature and assert that I have read, understood and agreed to this entire document.
