Goat Yoga Waiver

I hereby agree to the following:

  1. That I am participating in yoga classes (in studio, via the internet, over
    the phone, or via a video or audio recording), as well as other exercise
    fitness routines, Reiki, health programs or workshops offered by Down
    Dog Gettysburg, LLC (herein referred to as DDG) during which I will
    receive information and instruction about yoga, fitness, and health. I
    recognize that yoga, and other exercise fitness routines require physical
    exertion that may be strenuous and may cause physical injury, and I am
    fully aware of the risks and hazards involved.
  2. I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with a physician
    prior to, and regarding my participation in yoga classes, as well as other
    exercise fitness routines, Reiki, health programs or workshops offered by
    DDG. I represent and warrant that I am physically fit and I have no
    medical condition that would prevent my full participation in the yoga
    classes as well as other exercise fitness routines, Reiki, health programs
    or workshops. I understand that it is my responsibility to update this
    waiver with regard to any health condition changes that I experience in
    the future.
  3. In consideration of being permitted to participate in yoga classes as
    well as other exercise fitness routines, Reiki, health programs or
    workshops, I agree to assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries or
    damages, known or unknown, which I might incur as a result of my
    participation.
  4. In further consideration of being permitted to participate in yoga
    classes as well as other exercise fitness routines, Reiki, health programs
    or workshops, I knowingly, voluntarily and expressly waive any claim I
    may have against DDG and the instructors and facilitators for injury or
    damages that I may sustain as a result of participating in the program,
    and as a result of my negligence in participating in this activity.
  5. I understand that at anytime I am not required to participate in any
    activity and have the right and permission to listen to my body and take a
    break or stop any activity that does not feel right for me at the time.
  6. I, my heirs, and/or legal representatives’ forever release waive,
    discharge and covenant not to sue DDG for any injury or death caused by
    their negligence or other acts.
  7. I understand that COVID-19 and other airborne viruses are a risk when
    participating in group activities and in public shared spaces. It is my
    responsibility to wipe down any props that I use both before and after
    practice as well as to wash my hands regularly and to inform DDG if I
    have been sick or become sick within a week of attending classes at the
    studio or at DDG offsite events. I will not hold DDG, or other parties,
    responsible for coming into contact with any virus or becoming sick from
    another participant, as it is voluntary that I choose to participate in DDG
    classes and events.
    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.
    I realize there are special risks that could be associated with pregnancy,
    prior surgeries, injuries, and medical conditions that may carry additional
    health concerns. I have discussed these with my personal physician, and
    I have obtained his or her concurrence to participate in activities offered
    by DDG.
    I fully understand that Down Dog Gettysburg, LLC instructors and staff
    are not medically trained physicians or experts in medicine, and
    therefore, realize that their guidance is limited to the practice of yoga and
    fitness exercise, and the techniques and routines associated with them.
    In addition, I understand that this studio is located in a Civil War building
    and is a rented space by DDG. The main studio floor is original and
    although maintained and routinely checked for flaws there may be loose
    nails or splintering pieces of wood. Finally, I understand that by being in
    the space and paying for and taking a class that I recognize that things
    may happen despite what the waiver reads that it is my responsibility to
    act in a way that does not cause harm to myself or to others. By signing
    this waiver I also agree to being included in any photos or videos taken
    by or taken for DDG, tastefully taken that may be used in DDG’s
    marketing and advertising materials, social media and website. This
    agreement shall be governed by the laws in the state of Pennsylvania. I
    am not relying on any oral, written, or visual representations or
    statements made by Down Dog Gettysburg, including brochures or
    promotional materials to induce me to participate in this activity.
    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.
