I understand that from time to time during Yoga classes, the instructor may physically adjust students’ form and posture. If I do not want such physical adjustments, I will so inform the instructor at each class I attend. I also acknowledge that if I do wish to receive such adjustments, it is my responsibility to inform the instructor when an adjustment has gone as far as I desire at that time.

In submitting the registration form I hereby take full and sole responsibility from any liability of loss or damage to personal property associated with Yoga classes or any other events.
