Before registering, purchasing or starting your EMYoga course, practice or other offering, please read our Energy Medicine Yoga (EMYoga) Participation and Liability Waiver & Release Agreement in its entirely. The act of you registering and/or purchasing any EMYoga course, practice and/or other offering, regardless of whether it is free or for a fee, will serve as evidence that you have read, understood and accept the terms and conditions set out in the EMYoga Participation and Liability Waiver & Release Agreement set out below including your complete and unconditional release of all liability:
Energy Medicine Yoga (EMYoga) Participation and Liability Waiver & Release Agreement
I understand that Energy Medicine Yoga (EMYoga) includes physical movements, energetic work, and the potential to release emotions/toxins. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be eliminated entirely. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, discontinue the activity, and ask for support from the instructor. I assume full responsibility for any and all damages, which may incur through participation.
EMYoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. EMYoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions. By acknowledging that I have read this waiver and release agreement, I affirm that a licensed physician has verified my good health and physical condition to participate in such a fitness program/training. In addition, I will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations beforehand. If I am pregnant, become pregnant or I am postnatal or post-surgical, my acknowledgement verifies that I have my physician's approval to participate. I also affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga and am participating voluntarily and at my own risk.
I hereby voluntarily release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue EMYoga, Lauren Walker, and its instructors, directors, and affiliated staff all of which are hereinafter referred to as “Releases” from any and all liability to the undersigned, his or her heirs and next of kin for any and all damage to persons or property, caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Releases or otherwise.
I further confirm that I have read, fully understand, acknowledge, and agree to the following Recording Release:
Some EMYoga classes, workshops and training programs (including EMYoga Teacher Training programs) in whole or in part, are offered through a virtual platform, like Zoom, recorded, etc. By registering for such an offering now or in the future, I am acknowledging that the class, workshop and/or training program may be recorded. By participating in such a class, workshop and/or training program, I understand and consent to being on camera and recorded. If I do come on video to ask questions or share a story, I am granting permission to EMYoga to use my image and voice as it appears and is recorded in this and any future class produced by Energy Medicine Yoga. I also realize that I may appear in background shots, as well as other ‘still’ photos taken of the recorded class. I grant permission to EMYoga to use my image and any part of such recording in any publicity, educational product and/or social marketing efforts.
If I do not want to be recorded and potentially identified during any recorded EMYoga class, workshop and/or training program, I acknowledge that it is my sole responsibility to take all necessary steps to prevent this from happening, such as, but not limited to turning my video off, only using my initials and asking questions in the chat, sitting behind the camera, etc.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Montana. If any portion of this Agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
I acknowledge that I have read and fully understand and agree to the above terms of this Liability Waiver and Release Agreement. I am further acknowledging that I am doing so voluntarily and after having been given sufficient time and opportunity to seek independent legal advice.
I also acknowledge and recognize that the act of "registering and/or purchasing" any EMYoga course, practice and/or other offering regardless of whether it is free or for a fee, will serve as evidence of my complete and unconditional release of all liability. And that doing so, I may be waiving my legal right to a jury trial to hold the provider legally responsible for any injuries or damages resulting from risks inherent in the study and practice of EMYoga or for any injuries or damages I may suffer due to the provider's ordinary negligence that are the result of the provider's failure to exercise reasonable care.
