YOGA LIABILITY WAIVER
In consideration of, and as an inducement to, your enrollment as a student of CJA Yoga, you represent, acknowledge, and agree:
1) I understand that yoga is a vigorous physical activity. I understand and acknowledge that in any such physical activity, risk of injury, and even death, is possible.
2) I have been recently examined by a licensed physician and have been found by such physician to be in good physical health and fully be able to perform the exercises necessary to partake in yoga classes with CJA Yoga. I understand that CJA Yoga does not have a physician on staff and the certified yoga teachers of CJA Yoga are not qualified to diagnose and treat medical disorders and injuries. I have separately provided CJA Yoga with any and all relevant health information, emergency contacts, and known injuries by email to CJA Yoga and have identified such conditions to my teacher(s) prior to participating in each class or applicable session.
3) Certain yoga classes and poses are not recommended for individuals with certain conditions, including, without limitation, those with cardiac illness or irregularities, high blood pressure, pregnancy, diabetes, or various orthopedic injuries. I acknowledge and represent that CJA Yoga is under no responsibility for any exacerbation or new injury or illness that occurs with respect to any pre-existing condition, and that it is my responsibility to inform my instructor of any such conditions prior to class.
4) I acknowledge that the risks posed by yoga classes, workshops, retreats, and yoga poses are significantly minimized by following the guidance and instructor of a Certified Yoga Teacher. I agree to faithfully follow all instructions given to me by CJA Yoga and its instructors as to when, where, and how to perform and not to perform and not to perform yoga postures and any deviation therefrom shall be at my own risk.
5) I AGREE TO ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RISKS, INJURIES, OR DAMAGES, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, WHICH MAY OCCUR AS A RESULT OF MY PARTICIPATION IN THE CLASSES, WORKSHOPS, PRIVATE LESSONS, OR RETREATS AT CJA YOGA. I WILL NOT HOLD CJA YOGA, ITS MEMBERS, INSTRUCTORS, INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS, OR EMPLOYEES RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INJURIES SUFFERED AND I WAIVE AND RELEASE ANY CLAIM, DEMAND, OR CAUSE OF ACTION I MAY HAVE FROM OR RELATED TO THE AFOREMENTIONED PARTICIPATION. I HAVE READ AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THE ABOVE WAIVER OF LIABILITY. I AM LEGALLY COMPETANT TO SIGN AND VOLUNTARILY AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ABOVE. I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THIS IS A CONTINUING WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND WILL REMAIN VALID THROUGH ALL MY FUTURE VISITS TO CJA YOGA. IT IS MY RESPONSIBILTY TO SUPPLEMENT THIS WIAVER WITH ADDITIONAL CONTACT INFORMATION AND/OR MEDICAL CONDITIONS BY NOTIFYING CJA YOGA IN WRITING, BY EMAIL AT CJAYOGA@CHAWANIS.COM, OR IN PERSON AT THE PLACE OF BUSINESS.
