Palma Colectiva Event Waiver
All classes, workshops and retreats are non-refundable, however a credit may be issued should cancellation occur. I understand that yoga, breathwork, sound ceremony, tea ceremony, cacao ceremony, acupuncture, somatic movement and reiki may include physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reduction and relief of muscular tension. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture, ask for help from the instructor and/or stop participating in class. Yoga, breathwork, sound, acupuncture, tea and reiki are not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended under certain medical conditions.
