Physical Movement Practices;
Physical movement classes, instruction and other activities are available to individuals in different forms, including through online livestream, digital classes, through member's access to recorded classes, and in person live outdoor events and classes organized through Nick Ventra. Not all participants in activities need to be members; however, participants in specific programs and activities agree to the additional terms and conditions of those programs and activities, certain of which are set forth below in these Terms and Conditions.
I understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reeducation and relief of muscular tension. Participation in class includes, but is not limited to, participation in meditation techniques, yogic breathing techniques, physical fitness, and performing various yoga postures whether online in-home, live outdoor events, or private instruction. Yoga postures, or asanas, are designed to exercise every part of the body―stretching and toning the muscles and joints, the spine and the entire skeletal system. They also work on the internal organs, glands and nerves. Yoga incorporates sustained stretching to strengthen muscles and increase flexibility. Yoga is an individual experience.
As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. I acknowledge that participation in movement classes exposes me to a possible risk of personal injury. I am fully aware of this risk. My acknowledgment agrees that I understand that in yoga, or any physical fitness class, I will progress at my own pace. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture and ask for support from the instructor (the “Teacher”). I will continue to breathe smoothly. If at any point I feel overexertion or fatigue, I will respect my body’s limitations and I will rest before continuing yoga practice.
Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga and take responsibility for seeking professional or medical support should I notice injury occur.
I hereby take action for myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors and assigns as follows: I (a) irrevocably WAIVE, RELEASE AND DISCHARGE FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY for my death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property theft or actions of any kind which hereafter may occur to me, including my traveling to and from yoga classes, AS who is hosting these classes and where sessions are being held, and each of their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives and agents; and (b) INDEMNIFY, HOLD HARMLESS AND AGREE NOT TO SUE the entities or persons mentioned in this paragraph as to any and all liabilities or claims made as a result of participation in the yoga classes, whether caused by the negligence of releasees or otherwise.
Nick Ventra will not be held liable for any physical injuries sustained during yoga practices, physical workouts, trainings, workshops, retreats, in person events + classes, or online digital streaming.
