YOGA TEACHER/TRAINER LIABILITY

STUDENT WAIVER AGREEMENT

I understand that participation in yoga class and training activities includes, but is not limited to, participation in meditation techniques, yogic breathing techniques and performing various yoga postures.

As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. By checking the Terms & Conditions box, I acknowledge my understanding that in yoga classes and training activities I will progress at my own pace and participate by personal choice. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture and ask for support from the yoga trainer. I will continue to breathe smoothly. If at any point I feel overexertion or fatigue, discomfort or illness, I will respect my body’s limitations and I will rest before continuing yoga practice. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga and participate in the training activities.

If I am pregnant, become pregnant, or am post-natal, my acknowledgement of these terms verifies that I am participating in yoga classes and training activities with my doctor’s full approval. I realize that I am participating in yoga classes and training activities at my own risk. By checking the Terms & Conditions box, I acknowledge that participation in yoga classes and training activities exposes me to a possible risk of personal injury. I am fully aware of this risk. I hereby consent to receive medical treatment that may be deemed advisable in the event of injury, accident and/or illness during any yoga training activity.

By agreeing to the Terms & Conditions, I further acknowledge that I shall not now or at any time in the future bring any legal action against the trainer for these sessions, Kidding Around Yoga, or the training location where this training event is being held; and that this waiver is binding on me, my heirs, my spouse, my children, my legal representative, my successors and my assigns.

Once you have graduated, you will be invited into our Facebook forum where thousands of KAY teachers share ideas, experiences, articles, photos, videos, questions, and more. Sharing is caring… therefore, be aware that anything posted within our forum can and may be used by Kidding Around Yoga as a teaching tool. If you DO NOT want your post to be shared, leave it out of the group but feel free to enjoy the plethora of ideas being posted.

KAY respects your intellectual rights and ideas.

The Student Waiver Agreement shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law. I acknowledge that this Student Waiver Agreement form will be used by the person or entities being released in this yoga training and that it will govern my actions and responsibilities in said training.

I hereby certify that I have read this document, and I understand its content. I am aware that this is a release of liability as well as a contract and I agree to it of my own free will. I also understand that at the yoga training, I may be photographed. I agree to allow my photo, video or film likeness to be used for any legitimate purposes by the trainer, Kidding Around Yoga or the training location where this training is being held.

Kidding Around Yoga Justice Information

 Company Justice Statement

We stand with you, our Black family. At Kidding Around Yoga, we are a worldwide multicultural community committed to bringing the teaching of yoga to children and families worldwide. Our aspirations have always been to treat all humans with dignity, respect and care. We recognize that aspirations and intentions are different from impact. Our good intentions have not diminished the impact of our lack of understanding. We acknowledge the harm experienced by Black people and people of color within our organization. We have been blind to the ways in which white supremacy culture has been at play within our materials, structures and communications. We are deeply humbled and saddened to start to realize the extent to which BIPOC have been harmed, undersupported, ignored, dismissed, asked to perform emotional labor for free, and otherwise not held in the ways we aspire to hold everyone. We appreciate those who continued to point out to us our blindspots, even when we failed to listen or honor the wisdom they were bringing. We apologize. We know it is not enough. We are committing to strengthening our anti-racist actions, to continue looking deeper into our structures and personal biases, and to make ongoing changes to embody the teachings of yoga.

This is a time to wake up, to speak up, to stand up. This is a time to fight for what is right and educate those who are still in the dark. Every Black life matters. We all recognize that these are not new issues, but this IS a new opportunity to be allies and agents of change, in large and small ways. Let us not hide from this challenge or wait for someone else to do the heavy lifting. We each have a voice and a responsibility to fight for a better, more just and peaceful world. Join us as we listen, as we learn, as we change, and as we do what we do best: share the ancient and powerful practice of yoga and meditation with children across the globe.

In addition to the ways in which KAY supports bringing yoga to all children, we specifically recognize and commit to the following:

► Our materials and content need to be reviewed and updated. Some existing content contains ideas or themes rooted in racist structures we are now becoming aware of. These have caused harm and discrimination, and we are committed to a thorough review and action steps. We will give updates as to our actions regarding these materials.

We also recognize that we have not fully understood what cultural appropriation of yoga looks like. We understand that, in certain instances, we have used yoga in a way that has diminished its roots and caused harm to the culture from which it arises. We are undergoing a deep review of our materials and marketing, in this light, and will give updates as to our actions as a result of this review.

We also recognize that asking our Black teachers to share what they are doing to guide themselves through these “trying times” was felt as insensitive by many teachers. It was not our intention to cause harm in this way, but we understand how this is emotional labor, and that teachers need to be compensated for this. We will compensate any teachers we call upon to support us in this process.

We acknowledge the lack of Black leadership within KAY, and are actively expanding the leadership team to include and elevate Black wisdom and voices. This week, we are delighted to welcome Shawandra Ford and Camelia Brown onto the leadership team. We will continue to expand our team in the coming weeks.

We are revamping our KAY4ALL training to include specific anti-racist training. We will make it mandatory and included for all trainees and trainers. Meanwhile, KAY Leadership is undergoing anti-racist trainings themselves, which will be ongoing.

We are in the process of allocating resources to support scholarships for BIPOC trainees, to fund classes in underserved communities, and to offer financial support to organizations upholding anti-racism and helping make yoga accessible and available to BIPOC families.

In order to move forward and accomplish the mandates listed above, we have created a Justice Task Force. The JTF will identify and implement the changes needed within KAY. The JTF consists of seasoned and new team leaders committed to serving to create an anti-racist culture within our organization.

We will be adding tasks to the list, as we grow and evolve in our understanding of what needs to be done. We hope you will join us in doing this work in your own lives.

We are open to feedback, but we understand that it is no one’s job but ours to look, to learn, to digest, and to take action. We stand by our commitment to become an anti-racist organization whose work uplifts, supports and learns from Black wisdom and leadership.

Please email info@kiddingaroundyoga.com if you wish to reach out to us in regard to this statement, whether it’s feedback, an offer to join our efforts, or you want to be kept up to date with these promises. 

Namaste,

Kidding Around Yoga
