yoga with cats waiver of liability
I understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reduction and relief of muscular tension. Participation in yoga class includes, but is not limited to, meditation techniques, yogic breathing techniques, and performing various yoga postures. Yoga is designed to exercise every part of the body – stretching and toning the muscles and joints, the spine and the entire skeletal system. Yoga incorporates sustained stretching to strengthen the muscles and increase flexibility. Yoga is an individual experience.
I further understand that I am participating in a yoga class in a cat shelter, where cats will roam freely in the class space. I understand and accept the risk of injury from interacting with the cats, including, but not limited to, scratches, bites and allergic reaction. I understand and accept that cats may cause distraction during yoga class and I do not hold Good Mews Animal Foundation liable for any injury sustained as a result of interacting with the cats.
As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. By accepting this waiver of liability, I acknowledge that participating in yoga with cats class exposes me to possible risk of personal injury. I am fully aware of this risk and hereby release Good Mews Animal Foundation and the yoga instructor from any and all liability, negligence or other claims arising from or in any way connected with my participation in yoga class.
If I am pregnant or become pregnant or am post-natal, I verify that I am participating in yoga class with my doctor’s full approval. I realize that I am participating at my own risk.
