I understand and acknowledge the fact that in yoga, as in other forms of exercise, sports, bodywork, or self-development, there exist certain inherent risks. I agree to assume full responsibility for all risks, injuries, loss or damages, known or unknown, which I might incur as a result of participating in the yoga program or other programs provided by the Facilitators.

I, my heirs and legal representatives forever release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue any of the Facilitators for any injury, damage, or death caused by their negligence or otherwise.
(c) I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with my health care practitioner prior to and regarding my participation in exercise classes (including yoga), hikes, excursions, or other programs offered by the Facilitators.
