I understand that yoga includes physical movements, as well as an opportunity for relaxation and stress reduction. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. Also, yoga can stir up emotions, and the possiblity or extent of that possibilty and my reaction to such experiences cannot be pre-determined or eliminated. If I experience any physical or emotional pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, discontinue the activity and ask for support from the instructor. I will continue to breath smoothly.

I acknowledge that if any information changes I will notify my instructor, and take full responsibility for non-disclosure. If I am pregnant, become pregnant or I am post-natal or post-surgical, my signature verifies that I have my appropriate physician’s approval to participate.
I also affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga and participation is at my own risk. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or may have hereafter against Anna Palma.

4. I am not relying on any oral, written or visal representations or statements made by Essence Yoga, LLC, including brochures or promotional materials to induce me to participate in this activity.

5.
