2021 Bali Retreat
Release & Liability Waiver
I understand that yoga requires and includes physical movements. I realize that yoga also provides relaxation, stress relief, stress education, and awareness. As with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will notify the instructor, adjust my posture and listen to my body. I will not push my body too far and will ask for support from the teacher if needed.
Yoga is not a substitute for medical care or diagnosis. Yoga can work well in conjunction with traditional medical care. I will practice yoga only after discussing it with my doctor and gaining their approval. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or hereafter may have against Anne Pauline Abadie.

I am participating in yoga classes, workshops and other wellness, exercise and healing arts activities (collectively, the “Activities”) offered by Anne Pauline Abadie and/or its instructors, workshop presenters, employees, and independent contractors.

I understand that Anne Pauline Abadie reserves the right in its absolute discretion to refuse my participation in an Activity on medical, fitness or other grounds.
3. I am in proper physical condition to participate in the Activities. I understand my physical limitations and am sufficiently self-aware to stop physical activity before I become ill or injured. I understand that it is my continuing responsibility to inform Anne Pauline Abadie of any previous medical conditions, injuries or surgeries prior to my first class and any future changes to my medical condition.
