Liability Waiver Agreement

I understand that yoga includes physical movements. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, discontinue the activity, and ask for support from the instructor. I assume full responsibility for any and all injuries, which may occur through participation.
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 a licensed physician has verified my good health and physical condition to participate in such a fitness program. In addition, I will make instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations before class. If I am pregnant, become pregnant, am post-natal, or am post-surgical, I verify that I will 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 hereby irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or may have hereafter.
I have read, fully understand, and agree to the above terms of this Liability Waiver Agreement. I agree voluntarily and recognize that my agreement serves as a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law in the State of North Carolina.
