Field of Yoga Waiver
RELEASE, WAIVER OF CLAIM, INDEMNITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK
READ THOROUGHLY AND CAREFULLY BEFORE ACKNOWLEDGMENT
I, _______________, (the “Yogan”) agree and acknowledge that participating in yoga has inherent in it numerous risks of physical and/or emotional injury, which may be serious and potentially debilitating. I understand that the dangers and risks of participating in Field of Yoga In-Person, Livestream, and Recorded Classes (“Field of Yoga Classes”) include, but are not limited to: neck and spinal injuries, injury to bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and other aspects of my body, general health and well-being, as well as concussion, head injury, and in rare and extreme circumstances, death. I am also aware and acknowledge the risk of emotional injury or disturbance arising from the deepening of my spiritual experience of yoga.
I recognize, and acknowledge that it is my sole responsibility to be aware of and respect my own physical limitations, and I hereby agree and acknowledge that I will never do any practice to the point of physical, or emotional pain or discomfort, at any point in my participation in the activities offered by Tamara Terry, operating as Field of Yoga (“Field of Yoga”) or any other instructor or assistant, during the course of the Field of Yoga Classes.
I further confirm, agree and acknowledge that yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment, and that practising yoga is not recommended or safe for all individuals under all conditions. I confirm that to the extent that I have any physical, medical or emotional conditions, that I have consulted my own physician prior to arrival at the Field of Yoga Classes, and that I have been medically cleared to attend and participate in the practice of yoga as offered.
I understand that some of these dangers and risks which are inherent in the nature of the activities taking place during the course of a Field of Yoga Class may arise through the negligence on the part of the persons involved in preparing, organizing and staging the classes, and that some of the risks and dangers are foreseeable, but others are not. I understand that the dangers and risks of participating in Field of Yoga Classes may result not only in serious injury, but in an impairment of my future abilities to earn a living, to engage in other business, social and recreational activities, and generally to enjoy life.
I am aware of the nature of a vinyasa flow class and am familiar with the dangers, risks and hazards associated with such classes. I acknowledge and agree that I am freely and voluntarily assuming any and all dangers, risks, and hazards arising through my participation in Field of Yoga Classes and further acknowledge that I am entirely at my own risk.
Field of Yoga and its respective employees, agents, directors and officers, helpers and assistants and each of them and their respective insurers, heirs, successors, assigns, administrators and executors (the “Releasees”) are not responsible for any loss, damage, personal injury or death to the Yogi arising from the Yogi participating in Field of Yoga Classes for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation, negligence on the part of the Releasees or any of them.
I acknowledge that the risks associated with the practice of yoga asana are increased when impaired or under the influence of alcohol, drugs, medication, prescription or otherwise, and I hereby agree not to participate if I am impaired in any way.
I understand that all Field of Yoga classes are both recorded and offered to students in person. The livestream camera in the Field of Yoga space is fixed and I understand that if I place my mat in close proximity to the camera there is a chance I can be recorded. I hereby consent to the use of my image in the livestream recordings in the event that it is captured in the recording. By signing this release, I understand I am releasing Field of Yoga from any and all liability that may occur as a direct or indirect result of my image, and/or the consequent release of my identity.
I hereby remise, release, discharge, waive, indemnify and save harmless the Releasees and each of them from any and all liability, costs (including without limitation, legal costs), claims, demands, damages, actions and causes of action at law and/or equity arising as a result of any loss, damage, personal injury or death suffered by the Yogi and/or any third party as a result, directly or indirectly, of my participating in Field of Yoga Classes for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation, negligence or partial negligence on the part of the Releasees of any of them.
I understand that by providing my online acknowledgement that I have read and understood this document that I will be forever precluded from suing or otherwise claiming against the Releasees or any of them for any loss, damage, personal injury or death that I may sustain through my participation in Field of Yoga Classes.
The foregoing release, waiver and indemnity are intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the Province of Alberta and if any portion thereof is held invalid, the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
ACCEPTANCE OF THE ABOVE by me is evidenced by my online acknowledgement and I agree that no representations, statements or inducements, whether written or oral were made, except as set out in the foregoing written document.
