Release and Waiver of Liability

I am participating in yoga classes, workshops, exercise and healing arts activities (collectively, the “Activities”) offered by Yoga Changes LLC. All of such offerings, shall be considered “Activities.”

By electronically signing or otherwise accepting and agreeing to this Release and Waiver of Liability (this “Release”), you expressly acknowledge that the use of the facilities, classes, Yoga Changes LLC may involve strength, flexibility, aerobic, cardio, and/or other exercises, soft tissue manipulation or manual adjustments which may include the instructor, assistant guiding your body to a pose or specific movement, all of which can be potentially hazardous activities that naturally involve the risk of injury to you, whether you or someone else cause it, and you understand and voluntarily accept this risk.

 

In addition, you represent that you are (and at all times moving forward, when taking classes or receiving instruction by or through Yoga Changes) in good health and have no disability, impairment, injury, disease or ailment that would prevent you from safely engaging in active or passive exercise or soft tissue manipulation or which would cause increased risk of injury or adverse health consequences as a result of engaging in active or passive exercise.

I warrant and represent that I am in adequate physical and mental health to participate in the Activities. And I further acknowledge and understand that it is my duty to notify my Yoga Changes teacher in advance of each and every class of any changes in your good health standing. Please inform your Yoga Changes teacher in advance of each class if you prefer not to receive manual adjustments.  Failure to do so will be deemed implied consent to receive manual adjustments in a class.

2. In consideration of being permitted to participate in the Activities, I agree to assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries or damages, known or unknown, which I might incur as a result of participating in the Activities, including those which may result from the negligence of Yoga Changes LLC.

In further consideration of being permitted to participate in the Activities, I knowingly, voluntarily and expressly waive any “Claim” (as defined below) I may have against Yoga Changes LLC., its owners, managers, teachers, instructors, workshop presenters, employees, independent contractors and staff (each, a “Released Party”) that I may sustain as a result of participating in the Activities even if the Claim arises from the negligence of any Released Party or anyone else. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless each Released Party from any loss, cost, or liability incurred in defending any Claim made by me or anyone making a Claim on my behalf, even if the Claim is alleged to or did result from the negligence of any Released Party or anyone else. “Claim” includes but is not limited to any and all liabilities, claims, demands, expenses, fees, legal actions, rights of actions for damages, personal injury, mental suffering and distress, or death that I may suffer, my spouse, children or unborn child may suffer (including any legal fees or expenses) in connection with participation in any Activity.
