I _____________________________________ (print name), understand that yoga includes physical movement 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. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture and ask for support from the teacher. I will not practice through pain or push myself beyond my limits.
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 affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga. I affirm that my platelet count is at least 20,000, all surgical incisions are healed and I can move about independently. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or hereafter may have against Welcome Mat Family Yoga, any other yoga & cancer teachers, or the facility where class is held.
