I am at least 18 years of age and otherwise legally competent to sign this agreement.
This liability waiver covers all yoga classes, workshops, and private sessions (“services”) offered by Unity Yoga LLC (“Unity Yoga”), including services offered by yoga teachers, independent contractors, substitutes, and assistants. By signing this document I am agreeing to these terms and conditions.
I am participating in yoga classes, workshops, and private sessions offered by Unity Yoga, during which I receive information and instruction about healthy and safe practices. I understand that yoga includes intense physical movement, stretching and balancing poses. As is the case with any rigorous physical activity, I understand that risks of injury, serious disabling, or even death are inherent and cannot be entirely eliminated. I understand and voluntarily accept these risks inherent in the services offered by Unity Yoga. If I experience pain or discomfort at any time, I will listen to my body and discontinue my participation.
I understand that classes, workshops, and private sessions take place in a heated room. If I experience any discomfort resulting from the heat or humidity, I will listen to my body and will promptly discontinue my participation in the class, workshop, therapy or private session, and notify staff for assistance. I understand that in some classes, workshops, and private sessions teachers will suggest use of props (including, but not limited to: blocks, blankets, bolsters, mats, straps, therapy balls and walls). I will only use these props while under the supervision of a Unity Yoga teacher and for the purposes intended. If I experience any discomfort resulting from the use of these props, I will listen to my body and will promptly discontinue use.
I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with a physician prior to and regarding my participation in yoga classes, workshops, and private sessions. I warrant that I am physically able, have a doctor’s permission, and I have no medical condition that would prevent my full participation in Unity Yoga’s services. If I am pregnant or become pregnant, I affirm that I will notify Unity Yoga staff and will consult with and obtain approval from my physician before continuing to practice yoga or any other form of exercise. I assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries or damages, known or unknown, which I might incur as a result of participating in yoga classes, workshops, and private sessions offered by Unity Yoga. I agree to inform my teacher of any physical limitations, physical discomfort and/or injuries before or during classes, and I take full responsibility for nondisclosure. I hereby consent to receive hands-on assists from Unity Yoga yoga teachers and/or assistants while participating in yoga classes, workshops, and private sessions.
This waiver is effective and binding upon me and my spouse, heirs, survivors, representatives, executors, and administrators. I hereby irrevocably waive any claims that I have now or hereafter in connection with any injury (including death or disability) I may sustain in connection with the practice of yoga or other exercise, with the exception of willful or gross negligence.
I understand and agree that Unity Yoga is not liable (and I hereby indemnify and hold Unity Yoga harmless from) for any loss of, damage to, or theft of any of my personal property while I am visiting any Unity Yoga facility. I understand that all payments made to Unity Yoga for services or products are final. I have read the above waiver of liability and fully understand its contents. I understand that this waiver is a legally binding contract.
