When attending online classes we want you to listen to your body and if something seems inappropriate for you to do, please don’t. You can cease the activity, modify the position, or return to your breath until it feels safe and appropriate for you to continue.
That said, we need this waiver signed by each participant. Please download, sign and return to email@example.com If you have submitted a waiver for a previous online workshop there is no need to send it again.
You will need a space to place your yoga mat and your camera set up on the long side of your mat, back far enough that you can be seen both standing and sitting, with sufficient light in front of you and no light or windows behind you if possible. If these parameters aren’t possible, just do your best. Have props/water handy as well and try to arrange to not be interrupted.
