Basic Liability Release Agreement

I understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reduction and relief of muscular tension.
Participation in this yoga class includes, but is not limited to, a series of movements that will increase the heart rate, getting up and down off the floor regularly, holding poses for short and long periods of time, breath work, stretching, and rest at the end.
As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. My signature acknowledges I understand that in this class I will progress at my own pace. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture and ask for support from the teacher. If at any point I feel overexertion
or fatigue, I will respect my body’s limitations and I will rest before continuing yoga practice.
Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or hereafter may have against Vasa or the instructor.
By signing my name below, I acknowledge that participation in yoga classes exposes me to a possible risk of personal injury. I am fully aware of this risk and hereby release Vasa and the instructor from any and all liability, negligence or other claims arising from or in any way connected with my participation in yoga class.
My signature further acknowledges that I shall not now or at any time in the future bring any legal action against Vasa or the instructor; and that this waiver is binding on me, my heirs, my spouse, my children, my legal representatives, my successors and my assigns. My signature verifies that I am physically fit to participate in these classes. If I am pregnant or become
pregnant or am post-natal, my signature verifies that I am participating in yoga classes with my doctor’s full approval. I realize that I am participating in yoga classes at my own risk, in person or online.
