Waiver of Liability
By completing this online waiver, and in consideration of and as an inducement to my registration and payment of fees to become a participant of a retreat with Torch Yoga, coordinated by Firefly Community LLC (hereinafter “Firefly”), I represent and agree as follows:
I acknowledge that trips conducted by Torch Yoga and Firefly have risks inherent in them. I recognize the trip activities can result in serious injury to my property and myself, including death. I realize surface conditions during the trips will vary; obstacles and hills exist on some paths, trails, and roads; and I will be in proximity to vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians and other hazards, all of which can be dangerous. Furthermore, I understand I am responsible for my own safety when drinking or tasting wine, beer, or other alcohol on any of Torch Yoga or Firefly's trips and always have the option to not consume alcohol.
I confirm that I have been examined by a licensed Physician within the past six months and have been found by such physician to be in good health and fully able to perform all yoga exercises, which I am to learn and perform during the retreat. I will faithfully follow all instructions given to me by Torch Yoga and Firefly authorized instructors as to when and how to perform and not to perform yoga exercises. I understand the practice of yoga and group exercise activities may expose me to risk of personal injury, disease, or death and I knowingly and willingly assume such risk.In the event that I am pregnant, I will not attend a yoga class until I have discussed the potential risks to me or my unborn child/fetus with my obstetrician. I agree that I will follow my obstetrician’s recommendations and on behalf of myself, my heirs, spouse or other interested party hold harmless Firefly for any possible injury to myself or my unborn child/fetus.
I acknowledge that registration payments and deposits paid hereafter are non refundable. I understand that if I choose not to contract for travel insurance I am accepting the risks of my having to cancel my trip due to injury, illness, a change in my plans, or any other reason and will readily abide by Torch Yoga and Firefly's cancellation policy. I acknowledge that if I need to cancel less than 60 days prior to the retreat, for whatever reason, I will not receive a refund or credit. No refund or credit will be given for arriving late or departing early. I agree that in order to hold my space, payments must be made in accordance with the payment schedule.
In partial exchange for the tour, I give Torch Yoga and Firefly permission to use photos or other images taken by me which I make available, or images taken of me during the tour for any purpose, including but not limited to use in brochures, websites, marketing, and publicity. I furthermore agree to wear appropriate safety gear (as applicable) and to obey all local regulations.
Any provision not in conformity with the law of any state or governing body having jurisdiction is hereby severed from this contract and the remaining provisions remain enforceable. I agree that any dispute regarding this Agreement will first be tendered by the parties to a member of The American Arbitration Association for resolution prior to the filing of any lawsuit. Therefore, I hereby agree not to sue Torch Yoga or Firefly or any of its owners, employees, or contractors. I also release these parties from all liability to myself, my representatives, heirs, and next of kin for any and all damages to myself or my property, death, and related claims.
I understand that by submitting this Registration Form I am releasing my rights; acknowledging that retreats operated by Torch Yoga and Firefly are inherently risky; and accepting the validity of this online waiver.
