Yoga Law: What You Must know

About This Workshop

During this 60-minute online learning experience, Gary Kissiah will broadly review the top ten legal issues affecting our yoga community today: independent contractor liability, studio and teacher agreements, protection from liability, key agreements, branding, use of corporate entities, ethics, when to hire lawyers, reducing legal fees, and regulation.*


This discussion is for informational and illustrative purposes only and is not meant to impart legal or tax advice. Each studio owner’s situation may differ depending on the factual circumstances and the jurisdiction in which the studio operates.
