Fitness and Health

Some of our classes, workshops and trainings at Yard Yoga take place in a heated room. Each member agrees to familiarise themselves with what classes involve prior to assessing whether they are fit to participate in a class. Members should refer to the Website or speak to a member of staff for further information.

Yard Yoga staff may not be medically trained and are therefore not qualified to assess whether the member or any guest is in good physical condition and/or that the member can engage in any exercise without detriment to the member’s health, safety, comfort or physical condition. Please however notify your teacher of any health issues prior to the start of the class.

Members are advised not to undertake physical activities without first seeking medical advice if they have concerns over their physical condition. By taking part in classes, workshops and trainings held at Yard Yoga members agree that they know of no medical or other condition why they should not be capable in participating in the excercises offered by Yard Yoga, and that these would not be detrimental to the Member’s health, safety or physical condition.

The Studio reserves the right to refuse access to any member if, in its absolute discretion, it considers that the health of the individual concerned may be endangered by the use of such facilities.

Members shall not useYard Yoga facilities if they are suffering from: low/high blood pressure and/or cardiac irregularities, any infectious or contagious illness, disease or other ailment where there is a risk, however small, that such ailment may be detrimental to the health safety, comfort or physical condition of the other members. If there is any doubt, the member should consult their doctor. Members must notify the Studio of any circumstances affecting their health which may be exacerbated through continued use of the Studio.

Members are required to follow the instructions of the teacher at all times.
