YOGA CLASS AGREEMENT

Our Policy

  • If at any time during the class, you feel discomfort or strain, gently come out of the posture. You may rest at anytime during the class. It is important in yoga that you listen to your body, and respect its limits on any given day.

 

  • I understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress re-education and relief of muscular tension. 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 teacher. I will continue to breathe smoothly.

 

  • I assume full responsibility for any and all damages, which may incur through participation.

 

  • I understand that 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 will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations before class. If I am pregnant, become pregnant or I am post-natal or post-surgical, my signature verifies that I have my physician’s approval to participate.
