Release & Waiver of Liability:
I recognize that yoga classes are a voluntary activity and involve physical exertion that may involve bodily risk. I understand that it is my responsibility to consult a physician prior to participating in classes offered by Bend and Zen Hot Yoga and by starting classes I warrant that I have no detrimental medical conditions. I also warrant that I have inspected the facilities and observed classes prior to commencing and certify that they are safe.
If at any time classes or facilities appear unsafe, I will immediately notify an appropriate party. I also understand that, individually and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives or any other associated party (“Relatives”), I agree to release, acquit and forever discharge Bend and Zen Hot Yoga and / or its employees, agents, officers, representatives, all other related persons or entities, the owner of the premises, etc. (“Bend and Zen Hot Yoga and Others”), from any and all liability whatsoever resulting from any damages, losses or injuries (including death) that might arise in any way out my activities. I/We assume all risk of injuries associated with participation including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other participants, the effects of high heat and/or humidity, and all other such risks being known and appreciated by me.
In other words, if I am harmed in any way my Relatives and I are broadly agreeing to waive and forever extinguish the ability to seek damages from Bend and Zen Hot Yoga and Others to the maximum extent permitted by state and federal law. Additionally my Relatives and I agree to release, discharge and hold Bend and Zen Hot Yoga and Others harmless from liability for injuries, illnesses, medical bills, etc. incurred and in any way related to my activities. Also personal property is entirely my responsibility; Bend and Zen Hot Yoga and Others have no liability for loss or damage. The above terms may not be modified orally and if any portion of this waiver and release is found to be invalid, the balance shall remain in full force and effect.
Acknowledgement. By voluntarily and knowingly signing below, I am acknowledging that, among other things: I have carefully read this entire release and waiver, understand its terms without reservation and, accordingly, my Relatives and I are waiving substantial legal rights.
