Acknowledgement:

Regardless of previous yoga or meditation practice or experience, please be mindful, during practice, of any injuries, medical issues and of your own medical and or psychiatric history. YOU know your body and mind best. Do not ignore pain, triggering or extreme obtrusive thoughts EVER. In the physical realm, do not push past pain. Yoga & meditation heals. They do not hurt.

By purchasing a tangible product or accessory, course or subscribing to a monthly membership with Synchronicity Center, inc. delivered by itself and/or affiliated partners ie. Yogamu, LLC., GYTA, or others, I understand that yoga and meditation includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reduction, relief of muscular tension and examining the internal workings of the mind.  As is the case with any physical or mental analysis activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling physical injury, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated.  Likewise, through meditation and examination of the mind, serious deep rooted traumas may be revealed if present, and can cause initial distress before they can be dealt with in a healing environment under the guidance of a licensed mental health professional.

In the presence of physical discomfort, if at any time during the class, you feel discomfort or strain, gently come out of the posture and notify your teacher, or rest and relax in a posture that is therapeutic for you.

If you experience any mental distress, that you are unable to dissipate by opening your eyes and grounding yourself in the present moment, likewise, notify your teacher, end your session and contact a qualified mental health professional that can assist you.

Know, that you may rest at any time during any class or end your yoga/meditation session early if necessary.  It is important in yoga and Eastern Philosophy that you listen to your body and mind, and respect its limits on any given day.

By purchasing any Synchronicity Center and affiliated Course, Subscription or tangible product or accessory, I, the purchaser, understand and acknowledge that yoga or meditation is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. I also understand and acknowledge that Yoga (without specific modifications) is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions.  If you have any medical or psychiatric condition, you agree to consult with your physician prior to beginning any activity program, including yoga and meditation.

By purchasing or subscribing to a course(s), monthly package or tangible product or accessory, I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice yoga or meditation, and I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now, or heareafter may have, against Synchronicity Center, Inc. or any of it’s affiliated partnerships ie.
