Special Conditions & Injuries
Anyone with series medical, physical or mental health, conditions should consult a doctor prior to participating in a mindfulness meditation class. Mindfulness meditation classes offer a wonderfully therapeutic practice, but it is not therapy. We encourage you to listen to your body and mind, taking the appropriate modifications within your practice. The sitting and walking practice should not hurt. It is your responsibility to inform the instructor if you are in pain or discovering increased anxiety or depression, or have any injuries prior to the start of class.
All students are required to sign a consent form prior to participating in their first class, arrive a few minutes early, or you may download a PDF version of our consent form to fill out prior to coming to class. Be Here Now Mindfulness Consent Form.

Any student under 18 years of age must have a parent/guardian’s signature on the waiver.
Our classes are designed for students of all ages. Students who do not want to attend class and are not willing participants may be asked to discontinue the class until another time. Pro-rated refunds may be permissible under certain circumstances if this should occur.
** Minors may not sit in the reception area or in the class while the parent or guardian takes a class. Be Here Now Mindfulness is not authorized to supervise children.**
