ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE OF LIABILITY, AND INFORMED CONSENT
The individual named below (referred to as “ I” or “ me” ) desires to voluntarily take yoga and high intensity fitness classes, whether in studio or virtually, provided by JTN, Inc. d/b/a Duality Fitness (“ Duality” ). As lawful consideration for intangible value that I will gain by taking such fitness classes and/or consuming Duality’ services, agree to all terms and conditions set forth in this release of liability (this “Release” ).
I understand that yoga and high intensity fitness classes require and include physical movements whether taken in the studio or virtually. I realize that yoga and high intensity fitness classes also provide relaxation, stress relief, stress education and awareness. As with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. I acknowledge that my participation in any of Duality’ s classes, in studio or virtually, is neither urgent nor necessary. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will notify the instructor, adjust my posture and intensity levels, and listen to my body. I will not push my body too far and will ask for support from the teacher if needed. If I am taking any
virtual class outside of the studio, I will listen to my body and ensure that any equipment I may use is appropriate for the physical activity I am doing. I will contact Duality with any question I have regarding virtual classes and the appropriateness of any equipment I may use outside of the studio, but I acknowledge that I must use my own discretion regarding the suitability of any virtual class or equipment for my own body and fitness level.
Yoga and high intensity fitness classes are not a substitute for medical care or diagnosis. Yoga and high intensity fitness classes can work well in conjunction with traditional medical care. I will participate in yoga and high intensity fitness classes (virtual or in-studio) only after discussing it with my doctor and gaining their approval. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to participate in yoga and high intensity fitness classes. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or hereafter may have against Duality.
I, hereby acknowledge and agree to the following:
1. I am voluntarily participating in yoga and/or high intensity fitness classes offered with Duality, where I will receive information and instruction about yoga and high intensity fitness classes.

I am fully aware of the risks involved and assume the risks detailed herein.
2. I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with a physician prior to and in reference to my participation in yoga and high intensity fitness classes. I warrant and represent that I am physically fit and have no medical condition that would prevent my full participation in yoga and high intensity fitness classes.
3. In exchange for voluntarily participating in yoga and high intensity fitness classes, I agree to assume full responsibility for any risks, injury or damages, which I might incur as a result in participating yoga and high intensity fitness classes.
4. I understand that Duality offers virtual classes in addition to instruction in-studio. I agree to assume full responsibility for any risks, injury or damages I may incur as a result of voluntarily participating in any virtual instruction outside of the Duality studio. I am fully responsible for my choice of equipment and intensity, and for listening to feedback from my body as I participate.
5. I knowingly and voluntarily waive any claim I might have against Duality for injury or damages that I may sustain as a result of participating in this program.
6. I, my heirs or legal representative forever release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue Duality for any injury or death caused by their negligence or other acts.
