Release of Liability
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. I assume full responsibility for any and all injuries and damages that I may incur through participation.
Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis, or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions. By signing, I affirm that a licensed physician has verified my good health and physical condition to participate in such a fitness program.
I will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations before class. I agree I will not participate in en-studio or outdoor classes if I have flu-like symptoms and/or a fever or I have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 14 days or I have been in close proximity with a person with COVID-19 within the past 14 days. 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 understand that teachers cannot physically correct or modify student alignment given the current health circumstances. I also understand that this Waiver and Release applies to virtual and outdoor classes and that I will not hold the property owner, Ride the Wave Yoga LLC, or its instructors liable for any injuries sustained.
I understand that airborne viruses may be present at Ride the Wave Yoga LLC, and I agree that I will not hold Ride the Wave Yoga LLC, its owners, and/ or instructors liable for any illnesses that may be contracted by visiting the studio and being in near proximity with others. I also acknowledge that cleaning agents are used and will not hold any of the persons referenced in the preceding sentence for any allergic reactions to airborne remnants of cleaner within the studio.
I affirm that my participation in yoga is at my own risk, and I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I may have had, now have, or may have hereafter against Ride the Wave Yoga LLC, its owners and instructors. I also affirm that I am solely responsible for the security of my own belongings.
I have read fully and understand and agree to the above terms of this Waiver and Release. I am signing this agreement voluntarily and recognize that my signature serves as a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law in the State of Massachusetts.
