c. You acknowledge that the Services are primarily being provided by a single individual who may become ill, need vacations or have other pressing calls on her which may at times limit her ability to provide the Services.

We will endeavour to have the link remain live for at least 2 days and will allow multiple viewings (but not downloading).

j. When using our Services you are required to follow our instructions at all times ad failure to do so entitles us to cease to provide the Services (even if mid-delivery of a Service) with no refund.

or interrupted classes due to matters beyond our immediate control as a customer of the relevant venue.

d. If you fail to attend at the allotted start time, then we reserve the right to refuse entry to the relevant session should we (at our sole discretion) consider it too disruptive (or for some other reason inappropriate) to allow you late admission.

e. We nor our agents shall be liable to you for any loss, damage, theft or other interference with or removal of any property (including bicycles) brought onto or left outside the premises where Services are being offered.

c. Unless you are cancelling under clause 8b above or because of a force majeure event (see clause 19 below) then if we fail to provide a Service (zero-cost Services excluded) when you were ready, willing and able to receive it at the time specified for delivery and we were unable to deliver (subject always to any force majeure event, see below) then you have the option of rescheduling the Service to a time and date to be agreed or receiving a refund.

 

10. Use of the Services by you and your reliance on them

a. We are not medical practitioners and so provide no medical care or advice. Your doctor should be the only medical advisor whose advice you follow.

 

IMPORTANT: Medical Risk

b. Whilst yoga and yoga based exercise is generally appropriate for most people, there always exists a possibility of injury when exercising arising from an underlying medical condition. These include (without limitation) abnormal blood pressure, fainting, heart rhythm changes, heart attack, stroke, and muscular skeletal injury, including hernia. Whilst we shall make reasonable efforts to reduce the risks associated with exercise (primarily through your completing a health assessment for and our observation of you before and during Services (pre-recorded Services excluded) YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT: i. the said risk cannot be removed; ii. we are not responsible for diagnosing and responding to such underlying conditions; iii. Services delivered online do not allow the instructor to observe your participation either at all or (where interactive) as thoroughly as a face-to-face class; iv. a negative response to exercise because of an underlying medical condition is not our responsibility and we cannot guarantee that no such response will occur; v. that some issues may manifest during exercise (e.g. back and joint problems, dizziness, etc.), but that does not mean they are caused by that exercise.

c. The above said medical risk is also present when you choose to use pre-recorded videos however, the risk is inevitably greater because you will be exercising without supervision from an instructor. Whilst we attempt to reduce such risk through appropriate teaching and clear instructions for execution of exercises and safety/appropriateness of each exercise, you acknowledge that there is a heightened risk because you exercising without instructor supervision and you agree to take responsibility for any such risks incurred.

d. You will be required to complete a medical assessment form before accessing certain of the Services and failure to do so when required is a ground for refusal to provide the requested Service without refund.

e. The Services are provided solely as a non-critical support to assist you with your efforts to enhance your personal fitness. If you are using the Services following medical treatment that is not something we can advise on or recommend that you do without consulting your doctor first.

f. The Services are not health care services and are not supplied as an integral part of your medical treatment, nor as an alternative to any medical treatment.

g. You agree that you participate in any class or video or use any other Service at your own risk and that that risk remains with you notwithstanding your following any advice or recommendations from us or taking advice about topics related to exercise rehabilitation, movement, yoga, exercise training or any other related topic.
