WAIVER AND RELEASE AGREEMENT
BY YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS CLASS, YOU ALSO ACCEPT THIS WAIVER AND RELEASE, AND CERTIFY THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD ALL OF ITS TERMS. PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL DOCUMENT CAREFULLY AS IT REPRESENTS A WAIVER OF CERTAIN RIGHTS, AND CONSULT A LAWYER IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF ANYTHING CONTAINED WITHIN IT.
By participating in or booking a free or paid, in-person or online, private session (“Private Session”), group class (“Group Class”), Facebook Live or Instagram Live session (any of these a “Class”) with a Soul Circle Yoga Instructor (the “Instructor”), you and those you represent (the “Attendee” or “you”) agree to release from liability, indemnify, and irrevocably waive the right to sue either of Soul Circle Yoga or the Instructor for the content and/or results of attending a Class.
Classes are offered in a range of topics, activities and intensity levels. For all Classes, you agree that you are voluntarily participating, and that by participating in a Class in any capacity, you are doing so entirely at your own risk. You also assume all risks of injury, illness, loss, property damage or death, including those risks not currently known or not reasonably foreseeable by the Instructor or Soul Circle Yoga, as a result of participating in a Class. You acknowledge that some of these risks cannot be eliminated.
You are responsible for providing your own facilities, tools and/or equipment for any Classes taught online (and for any other Class if noted) and neither the Instructor nor Soul Circle Yoga is responsible for any injury caused by any misuse of them nor any damages caused to them. In all Classes, you are responsible for your own safety and you are under no obligation to follow every suggestion of the Instructor. You should decrease or stop your participation in the Class at any time if you do not feel comfortable to proceed and if you proceed do so at your own risk.
Each time you participate in a Class, you certify that you are physically and mentally fit to participate in that Class. It is your responsibility to communicate to the Instructor any physical or psychological concerns that could affect your participation in a Class.
By accepting these terms, you acknowledge that you have carefully read this Waiver and Release and fully understand that it is a release of liability. You expressly agree to release and discharge the Instructor and Soul Circle Yoga from any and all claims or causes of action and you agree to voluntarily give up or waive any right that you may otherwise have to bring a legal action against the Instructor or Soul Circle Yoga for personal injury, death, property damage, theft, illness or any other loss. To the extent that statute or case law does not prohibit releases for negligence, this release is also for negligence. If any portion of this release from liability shall be deemed by a Court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then the remainder of this release from liability shall remain in full force and effect and the offending provision or provisions severed herefrom.
Because physical exercise can be strenuous and subject to risk of serious injury or death, you acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to consult with your physician or other health care professional prior to using Soul Circle Yoga, as well as prior to participating in this Class, to determine if and how appropriate they are for you. You agree that by participating in a Class, you do so entirely at your own risk. Any recommendation for changes in diet or exercise routine are entirely your responsibility and you should consult a physician prior to undergoing any dietary, food supplement or exercise routine changes. Any fitness and related information offered on Soul Circle Yoga by the Instructors is designed for informational and entertainment purposes only. You acknowledge that while your Instructor may offer his or her layperson’s opinion, your Instructor is not a physician or licensed medical care provider and cannot replace the advice and expertise of a physician or qualified medical care provider. If you are unwell and need medical assistance, please consult a professional.
I certify that I have reviewed all of the above terms of the Waiver and Release Agreement, and I hereby consent and agree to hold harmless, waive and release the Instructor(s) and Soul Circle Yoga from any responsibility, liabilities, demands or claims of any kind, present or future, arising from my participation in any Class or Classes.
