The impetus for Yoga Law came from a lawyer deeply ingrained in the yoga community who saw that teachers, studio owners, teacher trainers, retreat runners and conference/festival organizers didn’t understand how the law works with their yoga business. And so, a niche was born! Since offering Yoga Law in 2016, they have helped hundreds of professionals protect their brands and build their businesses through best legal practices.
