  4. understand YM instructors will presume that before attending my second class I will have studied all of the aforementioned information (as I undertake here that I will) and that if I have failed to do so I will not take offence if the instructor has to highlight elements of the logistics, etiquettes or policies to me at any future time, as these are deemed ‘the YM terms I agree to for admittance/participation in class’ and are the instructor’s tools for managing a class of individuals who are trying to learn the discipline of Yoga
  5. take responsibility for hydrating well prior to attending any class

  13. will not hold YM, its owners, employees or instructors responsible for any injury(ies)/illness suffered by me caused whole or in part by my failure to understand my own immune system limitations or by my failure to use common sense hygiene protocols or my failure to follow the instructions of YM instructor OR by my not being mindful OR by any physical impairment of mine OR any action/asana performed by me before or after class that are not in the class description which are at my own personal risk/responsibility
  14. will communicate and engage with my instructor at all times as necessary
  15. am responsible for my own personal property at all times and the studio and instructors are not responsible for any items that go missing
