By checking this box, 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 agree and understand that yoga is not a substitute for medical treatment or attention and that I should consult with my physician prior to beginning any new activity program including yoga. I agree that I am solely responsible for the decision to practice yoga and that I have no known medical condition which would prevent me from taking part in yoga classes or receiving yoga instruction. I assume responsibility for any risk or injury that I may sustain as a result of my participation. I will not hold Yoga East and its instructors responsible for any injuries suffered by me caused in whole or in part by my failure to follow the instructions given, or by any physical impairment of mine. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or hereafter may have against Yoga East, associate instructors, sponsors, and other participants.
