dimitraYOGA AGREEMENT OF RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY
I, , understand and agree to the following:
Participation in yoga classes, training and/or workshops include, but is not limited to, participation in meditation techniques, yogic breathing techniques, and performing various yoga postures. Yoga postures, or asanas, are designed to exercise every part of the body - stretching and toning the muscles and joints, the spine and the entire skeletal system. They also work on the internal organs, glands and nerves. Yoga incorporates sustained stretching to strengthen muscles and increase flexibility.
Yoga and physical exercise is an individual experience. I understand that in Yoga, and in any other exercise class, I will progress at my own pace. If at any point I feel overexertion or fatigue, I will respect my own body's limitations and I will rest before continuing yoga or any other exercise.
By signing my name below, I acknowledge that participation in yoga classes or any other exercise class exposes me to a possible risk of personal injury. I am fully aware of this risk and hereby release dimitraYOGA, Dimitra Kotanides, and / or any other persons who may teach at dimitraYOGA from any and all liability, negligence, or other claims, arising from, or in any way connected, with my participation in yoga and any other exercise class, including attorneys’ fees.
My signature further acknowledges that I shall not now, or at any time in the future, bring any legal action against dimitraYOGA, Dimitra Kotanides and /or any other persons who may teach at dimitraYOGA; 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 yoga classes, or any other exercise classes, and a licensed medical doctor has verified my physical condition for participation in this type of class. I assume responsibility to update dimitraYOGA of any changes in my medical condition that might affect my safety or participation in any classes, workshops and/or training at dimitraYOGA.
If I am pregnant, or become pregnant, or am post-natal, my signature verifies that I am participating in yoga, or any other exercise classes, with my doctor's full approval.
I understand that many of the yoga exercise requires the student to be in an upside-down position with relationship to the floor. It is my responsibility to consult with a physician prior to participating in yoga. I represent and warrant that I am physically fit and I have no medical condition that would prevent my full participation in these yoga classes, workshops and/or trainings.
I realize that I am participating in yoga, or any other exercise classes, workshops and/or trainings at my own risk.
My signature is binding to this liability waiver from this day forth.
