Yoga Waiver and Release of Liability

I understand that yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis, or treatment, nor is yoga recommended or safe under certain medical conditions. By signing, I affirm that a licensed physician has verified the status of my health and physical condition as sufficient to allow me to participate in the physical activity required by the yoga program. The yoga activities I engage in may be provided to me online or by similar electronic, video, or digital means. I understand, acknowledge, and accept that this type of activity may not provide me an opportunity or ability to perceive and/or render assistance in the event of an emergency or other situation that requires prompt or immediate attention. I understand that I have assumed the risk of such a situation and I will take steps to avoid or deal with such situations at my location. If I am under 18 years of age, I warrant that I have disclosed my age to my teacher and in addition to my signature, have provided the signature of my parent or legal custodian or guardian above. In further consideration of being permitted to participate in the yoga class, I knowingly, voluntarily, and expressly waive any claim I may have, now or hereafter, against my yoga teacher, Parna Mazumdar / YogaForHealth by Parna LLC, and/or the owner of the Studio for injuries or damages that I may sustain as a result of participating in the yoga program. I, my heirs or legal representatives forever release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue my yoga teacher, Parna Mazumdar / YogaForHealth by Parna LLC, and/or yoga studio owner for any injury, damage, or loss that I may sustain as a result of participating in the yoga program.                                                                                        

I agree to indemnify and hold harmless Parna Mazumdar / YogaForHealth by Parna LLC and/or Yoga Studio Owner from any loss, damage, or expense (including attorney's fees) sustained or incurred by them arising from any such claims, cause of action, or liability, whether brought by me, anyone acting on my behalf or anyone else because of conduct attributed to me.                                                              
I agree that this agreement shall be construed and interpreted according to the laws of the State of Illinois.                                                                                            

I agree that this agreement and release shall be binding upon my heirs, assigns, and any personal entity acting upon my behalf, including a parent, guardian, or next friend.                                              

I have read the above release and waiver of liability and fully understand its contents. I voluntarily agree to the terms and conditions stated above.
