Membership Policies & Waiver
I am clear that it is 100% up to me to show up ready to practice, and I take 100% responsibility for receiving the value and depth of this program.
I agree to make my practice time sacred during live-streamed Amba circles and workshops:
- I agree to always set up from a quiet, private place free from distraction where I can be present in order to receive maximum value.
- I agree not to take the live-streamed Amba circles and workshops from my car (parked or driving), or a busy public space like a cafe.
- If there is the possibility of a noise distraction (such as children in the home or dogs barking), I agree to wear headphones.
- For sound privacy, if there’s a chance of someone walking through my practice space (such as a child or spouse coming in the room to get something) I agree to wear headphones.
I agree to set myself up with a comfortable practice space, with enough space to be able to move and lie on the ground, at least two yoga-mats width and 1 yoga mats length.
I agree to thoughtfully set up my sacred space with at least two candles, space clearing support (such as rose water, agua florida, sound tools like a rattle or drum, and/or sacred burnables lit prior to clear the space, such as sage, palo santo etc), mats or ideally soft rugs or sheepskins, pillows, cushions or bolsters, and a Mindfold or other kind of blindfold.
I understand that there are no refunds or transfers for any reason, and all sales are final.
I understand that I am purchasing a membership in the Amba Community, and that my membership access is only for me. I agree that I won’t share my login information with anyone.
I understand that all good things take time, and cultivating a consistent embodiment practice doesn’t happen overnight. Because we want you to succeed in your intention, there is a 3-month initial commitment to the Amba Community.
I understand that I can stop participation in the Amba Community at any time, however I am fully financially responsible for the first 3 months.
In order to cancel my membership after the 3 months are up, I understand that I need to give 30 days notice by logging into my Amba Community account and cancelling my membership.
I understand that if I’m choosing the monthly payment option, I am still responsible for the 3 month initial commitment, and that this is the case whether or not I am participating.
Amba Community Culture Policies
I agree to be warm, kind, compassionate, supportive toward myself and all of the other women in the Amba Community.
I agree to bring my full presence to my body, my being, and our practice space for the entirety of the circle. This means that I agree not to have conversations with people, be on my phone, run back and forth to do little tasks, check email, etc.
When another Amba Community member is sharing, I agree to give her my full presence and attention.
I agree to keep confidential any personal content that gets shared in the sharing portion of Amba Community circles and/or workshops. I understand that it’s strictly prohibited to disclose any information about what’s shared by any Amba Community member outside of our sacred circle.
I understand that for the sharing portion of the embodiment circles, if I would like to share or ask a question, I will raise my virtual hand (Zoom feature) so that the facilitator can be clearly notified. I am aware that there is a limited amount of time for sharing/questions and that it’s possible that we won’t be able to get to everyone who has a share at every circle.
I understand that for the sacredness and connection of our community, cameras are on at the beginning of the circle and end of the circle. While cameras can be off during the guided embodiment journey (practice), it’s asked that everyone has their camera on for the opening and closing segments.
Arrival & Attendance
In order to create a safe and sacred space, we’ll open the virtual doors to our Amba Community embodiment circles, events and workshops 15 minutes prior to the start time.
I agree to arrive into the private Amba Community Zoom room at least 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the session to give myself time to ground, settle, and prepare for my practice.
I understand that the virtual doors will be closed/locked at the start time of the circle, workshop, or class. I am aware that I won’t be able to get into the session if I arrive past the start time.
