Ethereal Lotus Yoga

Release, Waiver, Indemnity of Liability

This Participant Contract and Release, Waiver and Indemnity of Liability Agreement (hereinafter “Agreement”) is entered into by me (“Participant”) and Ethereal Lotus Yoga,  (“Organizer”).  In consideration of being permitted to participate in the activities presented by the Organizer, the Parties hereby agree as follows:

This Agreement is made and entered into under the laws of the State of Colorado and the United States and shall be interpreted, governed and enforced under and pursuant to these laws.  The term of this Agreement is for periodic sessions of various Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Pranayama over the next twelve months.

Participant agrees that should an action be brought against Organizer and/or any Yoga Facilitator or Apprentice working in collaboration with the Organizer for any reason whether to enforce the terms of this agreement or on some other basis, that all disputes between Participant and Organizer and/or any Breathwork Facilitator or Apprentice working in collaboration with the Organizer will be litigated in Colorado and Participant waives any rights they may have in litigating in any other jurisdiction.

Participant certifies that he/she is at least 18 years of age.

Medical Responsibility

 

Participant understand that Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not sold under certain medical conditions. By signing or electronically checking "I agree", Participant affirms that they have received advice from their doctor that they are capable of physical exercise such as that provided by Ethereal Lotus Yoga, or Participant will seek such advice, or Participant will assume the risk of exercising without a doctor’s examination. In addition, Participant will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations before class. If Participant is pregnant, become pregnant or Participant is post-natal or post-surgical, Participant's signature and/or by electronically checking "I agree", verifies that Participant has their physician's approval to participate. Participant also affirms that they alone are responsible to decide whether to practice and participation is at my own risk. Participant hereby agrees to irrevocably release and waive any claims that they have now or may have hereafter against Ethereal Lotus Yoga and all related facilities and premises for any personal injury or negligence. Participant takes full and complete responsibility for my presence at the Ethereal Lotus Yoga class/session/program/workshop and Participant will not hold Jeannette Rodriguez, any substitutes or Ethereal Lotus Yoga responsible for any injuries or loss they may incur as a result of their participation in any yoga class or discipline now or in the future.

Personal Responsibility

Participant agrees to comply with the stated and customary guidance and norms of participation in Breathwork sessions. If, however, Participant observes any unusual hazard during his/her participation including but not limited to any physical symptoms that Participant feels could be a danger to his/her physical well-being, participant will immediately remove himself/herself/themselves from participation in the session and bring such to the attention of the Organizer or a Facilitator forthwith.

Participant acknowledges that it is he/she/their duty to exercise ordinary care for the protection of others and myself while attending a Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Pranayama or Breathwork Yoga "Class, Session, Program, Workshop, or Other" with Ethereal Lotus Yoga. Participant assumes the risk of physical activity with his/her/their own physical condition. If at any time during the class, participant feels any discomfort or strain, they will gently come out of the posture. Participant understands that they may rest at any time during the class. Participant understands that it is important in yoga that they listen to his/her/their body, and respect its limits on any given day. Participant understands that yoga induces physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress re-education and relief of muscular tension. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If Participant experiences any pain or discomfort, they will listen to his/her/their body, discontinue the activity, and ask for support from the instructor. Participant will continue to breathe smoothly. Participant assumes full responsibility for any and all damages, which may incur through my participation.

Participant acknowledges that he/she/they have been advised (a) concerning the types of activities which will be engaged in during the  Program, and understands the risks and difficulties that may arise during the  Program; and (b) that if Participant feels too uncomfortable to continue at any point during the Yoga, he/she/they are to stop immediately and check in with Organizer before continuing.  Participant understands that he/she may decline to do any of the activities.  Participant understands that by executing this release and engaging in the Program, he/she is assuming those risks which are inherent to the activities involved.  Participant further understands that these activities are best done in presence of or in conjunction with the Organizer, for best results.

 

Participant understands and agrees that, if this is an in-person Yoga Program, Organizer is not responsible for property that is lost, stolen, or damaged while in, on, or about the premises.

Confidentiality

Participant agrees to keep confidential any comments, shares or experiences by other participants.

Participant understands and agrees that he/she is attending and participating in the Program at the discretion of Organizer, which attendance and/or participation can be terminated at any time without being informed of the reason therefore.  Participant agrees not to record – audio or video – any of these sessions or any persons participating therein. ​
