I am participating in yoga classes, workshops and other wellness, exercise and healing arts activities (collectively, the “Activities”) offered by Yoga Refuge, LLC (“Studio”) and/or its owners, instructors, employees and independent contractors. I understand that the Activities require various levels of physical exertion, and that it is my responsibility to consult with a physician prior to and regarding my participation in the Activities. If I have consulted a physician, I have taken the physician’s advice. I understand my physical limitations and am sufficiently self-aware to stop physical activity before I become ill or injured. I understand that it is my responsibility to inform the Studio of any previous medical conditions, injuries or surgeries prior to my first class and any future changes to my medical condition. I agree to assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries or damages, known or unknown, which I might incur as a result of participating in the Activities at the Studio. I knowingly, voluntarily and expressly waive any “Claim” (as defined below) I may have against the Studio, its owners, members, employees, and/or its instructors, volunteer staff, interns, workshop presenters, independent contractors and the landlord of the Studio (each, a “Released Party”) for any Claim that I may sustain as a result of participating in the Activities at the Studio even if the Claim arises from the negligence of any Released Party or anyone else. I agree to indemnify each Released Party from any loss or liability incurred in defending any Claim made by me or anyone making a Claim on my behalf, even if the Claim is alleged to or did result from the negligence of any Released Party or anyone else. “Claim” includes but is not limited to any and all liabilities, claims, demands, expenses, fees, legal actions, rights of actions for damages, personal injury, mental suffering and distress, or death that I may suffer, my children may suffer or that my unborn child may suffer (including any legal fees or expenses) in connection with participation in any Activity. I acknowledge that I have carefully read this release and waiver of liability and fully understand its contents. I voluntarily and knowingly agree to the terms and conditions stated herein.
