**PLEASE FILL OUT AND RETURN THIS WAIVER FORM ALONG WITH YOUR REGISTRATION FORM**
Gentle Somatic Yoga® Teacher Training Certification Programs have been created for you to connect with yourself through movement, breath, and activities for personal growth and adventure. Our primary goal is to provide you with an opportunity to seek a deeper understanding of Self through exploration and enjoyment. It is our goal to offer activities and experiences that are as freely and easily accessed as possible. However, these programs may involve risks and uncertainties. For example, we may face extreme weather, possible injury, and/or physical/emotional challenges.
By reading and signing this waiver of liability, you are acknowledging your understanding of these potential risks and agree to take full responsibility for your physical and emotional well-being. We request that you ask for our assistance should an issue arise for you at any time during the program. We have found from experience that most challenges or accidents can be avoided, if participants stay grounded in their body and seek assistance before the issue escalates into a larger problem.
