The following Disclaimer has been issued by the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) for all students participating in online yoga classes with a BWY registered teacher, and apply to online classes with Marianne's Yoga:
Although there are tremendous benefits to overall health and wellbeing, yoga can be physically challenging and carries with it risks that cannot entirely be eliminated. These include the risk of personal injury, or the exacerbation of existing injuries or conditions, or damage to property around you during your participation.
Please follow the British Wheel of Yoga - Student Guidance – Remote Sessions guidelines document
You must act responsibly and sensibly at all times.
You must not participate if you are pregnant, or under the influence of alcohol or non-prescription drugs
Neither your teacher nor the British Wheel of Yoga are qualified to express an opinion that you are fit to safely participate in any British Wheel of Yoga organised sessions or any British Wheel of Yoga trained teachers’ yoga classes. You must obtain professional or specialist advice from your doctor before participating if you are in any doubt.
Clear enough space to safely carry out the exercises without hitting items around you.
Check that the device you are using is securely positioned and will not interfere with your movement.
Listen to your body. Follow any safety instructions or suitable modifications or adjustments to the exercise as instructed.
Never continue with a class or a movement that is too difficult for your level of experience or ability, or if you feel any discomfort.
Please note, videos/audios are pre-recorded sessions and cannot be adapted to suit any particular requirements you may have. In the absence of negligence or other breach of duty by your teacher, participating in these yoga classes is entirely at your own risk.
