LIABILITY RELEASE - By signing up for a class, I agree with the following terms: *
In consideration of the services of Alicia Mendez and Our Healing Hub, I HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO IRREVOCABLY RELEASE AND WAIVE, INDEMNIFY, AND DISCHARGE ALICIA MENDEZ AND OUR HEALING HUB OF ANY AND ALL PAST, PRESENT, OR FUTURE CLAIMS ON BEHALF OF MYSELF, MY CHILDREN, MY PARENTS, MY HEIRS, ASSIGNS, PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVES/AGENTS, AND ESTATE AS FOLLOWS: 1. I ACKNOWLEDGE that I understand that yoga includes physical movements, as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reduction, and relief of muscular tension. I ACKNOWLEDGE that Reiki is not massage but may include light hovering of the hands or physical touch to aid in relaxation, stress reduction, and relief of muscular tension. As is the case with any physical activity, THE RISK OF INJURY TO ME OR TO THIRD PARTIES, EVEN SERIOUS OR DISABLING, IS ALWAYS PRESENT AND CANNOT BE ENTIRELY ELIMINATED. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture, and, if necessary, ask for support from the teacher or staff. I will continue to breathe smoothly. 2. I further acknowledge and agree that yoga and Reiki 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 Reiki. I HEREBY AGREE TO IRREVOCABLY RELEASE AND WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS THAT I HAVE NOW OR HEREAFTER MAY HAVE AGAINST ALICIA MENDEZ AND OUR HEALING HUB. 3. I expressly acknowledge, agree, and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity.

Should ALICIA MENDEZ AND OUR HEALING HUB or anyone acting on its behalf be required to incur attorney's fees and other costs to enforce this agreement, I AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD ALICIA MENDEZ AND OUR HEALING HARMLESS FOR ALL SUCH FEES AND COSTS. 6. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself.

At times our classes can take place in our physical studio location and at other times in a selected offsite venue.
