I will inform my teacher before the session of any changes in my health or medical status e.g. muscle or joint pain, new medication or an injury.

I understand my instructor can accept no liability for personal injury if your doctor has advised you against such exercise, if you fail to follow instructions on safety or technique or if injury is caused by negligence of another participant. If I am attending a class with my baby I understand my baby remains my responsibility throughout the class. I understand if I sign up for a block this is for a set number of weeks, is non transferable & is non refundable unless there is a medical reason why I cannot attend or continue the sessions.
