Terms and Conditions
By accessing in-person and online classes with me, you are agreeing to these Terms and Conditions. Your continued participation in my classes will be taken as acceptance of these terms. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions, please opt out of participation. Please read through this agreement in its entirety to continue practicing virtually with me.
You must be over 18 years old to participate in my virtual or in-person classes. If you are under 18 years old and would like to participate in my classes, please obtain the permission of a parent of legal guardian and contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that you can both sign a waiver for your participation.
You must be in adequate physical and mental health to participate in my virtual or in-person classes. Some classes may require physical exertion, and thus, you should not have medical conditions that prevent your full participation. If you have concerns about whether you are healthy enough to participate, it is your responsibility to consult with a physician before participation.
Please recognize that participating in my online and in-person classes may cause or aggravate certain medical conditions. Although these risks may be rare, you should be aware that your participation in yoga could result in high blood pressure, fainting, heartbeat disorders, physical injury, heart attack or stroke and may aggravate pre-existing injuries. Please understand that you could experience muscle, back, neck and other injuries as a result of your participation in yoga. Most importantly, please understand your physical limitations and be sufficiently self-aware to stop or modify your participation in any yoga class before you become injured or aggravate a pre-existing injury.
In the era of COVID-19, please ensure that you are taking proper safety and sanitation precautions while practicing yoga. Namely, you should be practicing at home or in a space in which you can distance yourself at least 6 feet away from anyone who you are not cohabiting with; you should ensure that your hands and all yoga mats and props that you are touching have been sanitized; you should cover your mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue if you cough or sneeze; and you should avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth unless your hands have just been washed and you are in a sanitary space at home.
In consideration of being permitted to participate in my online or in-person yoga classes, you are agreeing to assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries or damages, known or unknown, which you might incur as a result of your participation, including those that may result from my negligence.
In further consideration of being permitted to participate in my online classes, you knowingly, voluntarily, and expressly waive any “Claim” (as defined below) that you may have against me or that you may sustain as a result of participating in my online or in-person yoga classes even if the Claim arises from my negligence. You are agreeing to indemnify and hold me harmless from any loss, cost, or liability incurred in defending any Claim made by me or anyone making a Claim on your behalf, even if the Claim is alleged to or did result from the negligence of myself or anyone else. “Claim” includes but is not limited to any and all liabilities, claims, demands, expenses, fees, legal actions, rights of actions for damages, personal injury, mental suffering and distress, or death that you may suffer or that your spouse, children, or unborn child may suffer (including any legal fees or expenses) in connection with participation in my yoga classes.
In participating my yoga classes, you, your heirs, and/or your legal representatives forever release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue me for any Claim caused by any negligence or my other acts.
