possible risk of personal injury. I am fully aware of this risk and hereby release Montana Paxton from any and all liability, negligence or other claims arising from or in any way connected

My checking the box further acknowledges that I shall not now or at any time in the future bring any
legal action against Montana Paxton; and that this waiver is binding on me, my heirs, my
spouse, my children, my legal representatives, my successors and my assigns. My checking the box
verifies that I am physically fit to participate in yoga classes and a licensed medical doctor has
verified my physical condition for participation in this type of class.
If I am pregnant or become pregnant or am post-natal, my checking the box verifies that I am
participating in yoga classes with my doctor’s full approval. I realize that I am participating in
yoga classes at my own risk.
My checking the box is binding to this liability waiver from this day forth.
You are in control of your workouts. If any exercise is uncomfortable or painful, or if you want to
stop for any reason, you may do so.
You will get from your workouts what you put in. You are the only one who can make sure you
work out consistently, eat properly, rest enough, and live a healthy lifestyle.
