Yoga Release

I understand that owing to causes completely beyond the control of the instructors, program staff and the institution hosting this program, I might experience personal difficulties and that, as with all such programs, there may be a risk of personal injury.

Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. By signing, I affirm that a licensed physician has verified my good health and physical condition to participate in such a fitness program. If I am pregnant, become pregnant or I am post-natal or post-surgical, my signature verifies that I have my physician’s approval to participate. I also affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga and participation is at my own risk.

I understand that I may be offered physical assists or adjustments to enhance or align my body posture during classes by either the teacher or an assistant in class. I will take full accountability for alerting the teacher or assistant if I do not want to receive any adjustments, each time I participate in a yoga class.

Accepting responsibility for my voluntary participation in this program, I hereby waive and release any claim that I might have at any time for injury, damage, loss or wrongful death (whether caused by negligence or otherwise) against the instructors, teachers, program staff, or those responsible for the overall administration of this program or any person or entity in any way involved therewith, including without limitations its principals, instructors, teachers, employees, agents and representatives.

I hereby agree to the following:

  • I am participating in classes or services during which I will receive information and instruction, as well as participate in groups and discussions. I recognize that I may also choose to do physical movement as part of these classes or services.
