Disclaimer for the Practice of Yoga
Yoga is widely recognized to increase strength and range of motion, improve flexibility and balance, reducing stress, heart rate, and blood pressure, and help to alleviate the effects of various chronic diseases such as depression, anxiety, pain, sleep disorders, and cancer.
Shailla Vaidya MD specializes in therapeutic yoga, in which specific postures, breathing
techniques, and meditation will be used to help manage the symptoms of stress. While care will be taken to provide accessible yoga, we recognize that each person is different. Because of this variation between individuals, Shailla Vaidya asks that you also take responsibility to refrain from any activity that causes pain or discomfort.
I, the undersigned, agree that:
1. I understand that it is important in yoga that I listen to my body, and respect its limits
on any given day.
2. I understand my physical limitations and am sufficiently self-aware to stop physical
activity before I become ill or injured.
3. I understand that I may rest at any time during the session.
4. I understand that if at any time during the session, I feel discomfort or strain, I should
gently come out of the posture.
5. I understand that Shailla Vaidya will not be not aware of my internal experience. As such, I accept that Shailla Vaidya is not liable for any injury, or damages to a person or property, resulting from participating in this therapy.
7. I understand that Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis
8. I will not perform any postures to the extent
of strain or pain. I will take responsibility for my own body.
