I understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress re-education and relief of muscular tension. Asana (yoga posture) means posture easily held. If at any time during the class, you feel discomfort or strain, gently come out of the posture. You may rest at any time during the sequence. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body stop performing the yoga sequence immediately. I, the undersigned, understand that Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions. I should consult a physician prior to beginning any activity program, including yoga. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or hereafter may have against Affirmations & Innovations LLC, or any teacher affiliated with Affirmations & Innovations LLC. I also grant permission to Affirmations & Innovations LLC and its agents and employees the irrevocable and unrestricted right to reproduce the photographs and/or video images taken of me, or members of my family, for the purpose of publication, promotion, illustration, advertising, or trade, in any manner or in any medium, when applicable. I hereby release Affirmations & Innovations LLC and its legal representatives for all claims and liability relating to said images or video. Those under 18 years of age must have this form signed by a parent or guardian.
