Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, and Assumption of Risks Agreement

By signing this legal document, you will waive certain legal rights, including the right to sue. Please read carefully.

I am aware that, as with any form of exercise, the risk of injury can never be entirely eliminated and that I am responsible for recognizing my own physical limits. I understand that yoga and movement based exercise such as Pilates is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis, or treatment. If I have any concerns about whether yoga or Pilates is suitable for me, or if I have a particular injury or medical condition, I will consult my physician before participating in a yoga or Pilates based class with teacher Meghan Goodman. I will make my teacher Meghan Goodman aware of any injuries or medical conditions before participating in a class.

In consideration of Meghan Goodman agreeing to my participation in a yoga or Pilates class, recorded class and/or workshop, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is acknowledged, I hereby agree as follows:

1. I am aware of all risks associated with or related to participation in yoga and Pilates classes and workshops, and the use of yoga equipment and Pilates props, particulars of which include but are not limited to the risk of injury from coming into and going out of a yoga pose, and using props to assist in attaining certain yoga poses or Pilates exercises.

2. I waive any and all claims I have or may have in the future against Meghan Goodman. I agree not to sue Meghan Goodman, and I release Meghan Goodman from any and all liability for any loss, illness, injury, damage, or expense that I may suffer or that my next of kin may suffer as the result of my participation in a yoga or Pilates class, recorded classes and/or workshop, or related activity, due to any cause whatsoever including negligence, breach of contract, or breach of any statutory or other duty of care.

3. I accept full responsibility for any risk of illness, bodily injury, death, or property damage arising out of or related to my participation in a yoga or Pilates class, recorded classes and/or workshop, or related activity, including any risk arising out of the condition or suitability of the premises that I select to participate in any online classes, whether caused by the negligence of Meghan Goodman or otherwise.

4. I attest that I have no psychological, medical, physical or emotional condition that would prevent me from safe participation in any of the classes, workshops, or trainings.

5. I acknowledge that online classes may be recorded and that I have the option to turn off my audio and video at any time.

6. I acknowledge that my Zoom username will be visible to other participants during online classes but that I may edit my name as I wish.
