I, (please print)____________________________________________, hereby agree to the following:

1. That I am participating in the Yoga classes, health programs, workshops or services offered by YogArt during which I will receive information and instruction or other services offered pertaining to Yoga and health. I recognize that Yoga requires physical exertion, which may be strenuous and may cause physical injury, and I am fully aware of the risks and hazards involved.

2. I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with a physician prior to and regarding my participation in Yoga classes, health programs, workshops or services. I represent and warrant that I am physically fit and I have no medical conditions, which would prevent my full participation in the Yoga classes, health programs, workshops or services.

4. In further consideration of being permitted to participate in the Yoga classes, I knowingly, voluntarily and expressly waive any claim I may have against YogArt for injury or damages that I may sustain as a result of participating in the program or from receiving any services.

5. I, and my heirs or legal representatives forever release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue YogArt for injury or death caused by their negligence or other acts.

8. I realize that it is my responsibility to notify my instructor of any illnesses or injuries before every Suspension class.

9. I understand that YogArt Suspension yoga classes involve physical activity and even with the best of intentions it is possible that injuries may result or prior conditions may be aggravated. If I should experience any discomfort or strain, I will listen to my body, gently come out of the pose and ask for support from my instructor.

10. In consideration of being permitted to participate in Suspension yoga classes, I freely accept and assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries or damages, known or unknown, which might incur as a result of my participation in the program.

11. I hereby knowingly, voluntarily and expressly release my instructor, Anny St. Jean or any other teachers conducting classes on her behalf of YogArt, from any and all liability for any injury or damages that I may sustain as a result of participating in the classes.
