For those looking for medical counsel – although the information, ideas and perspectives of our programs and content are based on Ayurvedic, Yoga and Western allopathic principles or studies (and even though in the case of Ayurveda and Yoga – such perspectives have been employed for thousands of years), no part of our content should be taken or construed as medical diagnosis or treatment. We are not nutritionists, dieticians or medical professionals. The information provided has been developed following research and is based on personal experience with nutrition, wellbeing, health coaching, Yoga and Ayurveda knowledge attained by Karen Brar through her many years of studies within the field of holistic wellness. As with any diet, exercise, supplementation or medication program – before you start, you should consult a healthcare professional and in particular, if you have a health concern of any kind, it is recommended that you consult with your doctor or other medical professional. One significant component of Eastern medical philosophy is that each person has individual, unique needs, so no single recommendation, no matter how sound, is sound for every individual. For any medical condition or personal medical, herbal, dietary, or lifestyle advice, always consult with a health-care practitioner, directly.
If you cancel your reservation within 6 hours of the assigned class, it is considered a “late cancel” and you will be charged for the class. If you cancel outside of the 6 hour period, you will not be charged and that class will be returned to your account for future use.
