Liability Waiver Agreement Terms and Conditions
I understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reduction, 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 instructor. I assume full responsibility for any and all damages which may incur through participation.
Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis, or treatment. Yoga is also not a replacement for Physical Therapy, Chiropractic care, or Mental Health services. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions. By signing, I affirm that a licensed physician has verified my health and condition to participate in a yoga program. In addition, I will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or 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. I also affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga, and participation is at my own risk. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or may have hereafter against The Yoga Nest, LLC, as well as its staff, instructors, and representatives.
I grant The Yoga Nest, LLC and its representatives permission to use photos or videos of me taken at the studio or studio events held at third-party locations in promotional, print, online and other marketing materials created for The Yoga Nest, LLC. I also grant The Yoga Nest, LLC and its representatives permission to email me using the email address provided. I understand that I can also unsubscribe from receiving these emails at any time.
If I am completing this waiver for a student under the age of 18, I understand that I am signing this waiver on their behalf and certify that I have the authority to do so as their parent or guardian.
I have read and fully understand and agree to the above terms of this Liability Waiver Agreement. I am signing this agreement voluntarily and recognize that my signature serves as complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law in the State of Illinois.
