I acknowledge and understand that the Event is a dangerous activity that involves potential risk of severe bodily injury (including permanent disability, paralysis, and possible death) and/or property damage resulting from a wide variety of circumstances including but not limited to yoga, surfing, swimming, hiking, and being outside in variable weather conditions. By attending this event, I do so on my own free will and knowingly and irrevocably acknowledge, accept and assume all risks of injury or damage that may occur during the Event, whether known or unknown, including and without limitation those listed above.

  2. I hereby irrevocably, unconditionally and fully RELEASE, WAIVE, AND FOREVER DISCHARGE, AND AGREE TO HOLD HARMLESS, Julianne Aiello, JA Wellness LLC and all volunteers, participants, contractors, hosts, affiliates with respect to (a) ANY AND ALL INJURY, DISABILITY, DEATH, or loss to damage or property, WHETHER ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF RELEASE OR OTHERWISE, to the fullest extent permitted by the law and (b) all claims, actions and liabilities, complaints, suits, debts, costs, losses, damages and demands, whatsoever, whether known or unknown, that I, or anyone acting through, by or on my behalf, now has, or may in the future, arising or alleged to arise in any way out of cause, matter, or thing related to the Activity, or my participation or presence in the activity.

    (b) The full payment amount is due on or before the first day of the retreat by logging into your WeTravel account and paying with credit card or checking account, or cash/check in person.

  4. Your Travel Arrangements
    All travel arrangements are your responsibility and at your own cost. We shall not be held liable for any consequences arising from delays or cancellations in any of the companies you may have made arrangements with, or for any irregularities in your documentation required for travel. Transfers to/from the retreat are at your own cost, unless otherwise specified.

  5. Travel Insurance
    (a) Travel insurance is highly recommended. If you choose to buy insurance we require that your travel insurance covers the activity of this retreat as well as unexpected cancellation, sickness, losses and all the usual risks. You should bring the policy with you in case of an emergency.

  6. Your Health
    (a) It is your responsibility to let your Yoga Instructor know if you have any injuries and to be mindful at all times of your own body’s capability during the retreat. If you experience any injury or discomfort during any activity during the retreat, then you must desist immediately and let us know.
    (b) It is also your responsibility to consult a doctor with an understanding of yoga to check that you are sufficiently fit and healthy to undertake yoga classes and other physical activities that you may chose to do whilst on the retreat.
    (c) Please advise us of any mental or physical health conditions and dietary requirements before you book. If you have health conditions and dietary requirements that may be affected by the activities offered on our retreats we reserve the right to advise you to desist and in the interests of your wellbeing, or others, we may decline your stay at our retreats.
    (d) Whilst all measures are taken to ensure a high standard of health and safety, we are situated in the countryside where the land is uneven and we shall not be responsible for any injuries caused by uneven terrain.
    (e) Women who are 12 to 28 weeks pregnant should provide a letter from their health practitioner specifying that they are fit to travel and able to engage in the activities that we provide. We would prefer pregnant women to have done a little yoga before they arrive.

  7. Cancellation
    (a) You (or any member of your party) may cancel your booking at any time, providing that the cancellation is made by the person submitting the booking form and is notified to us in writing. Cancellation will take effect the day such notification is received by us.

However, if another person can be found to take your place, then we may offer you a refund at our discretion.

    (b) Bookings are for the stated period of the retreat. There are no refunds for an unused portion of the retreat. If the reason for cancellation is covered under the terms of your Insurance Policy, you may be able to make a claim on your insurance.

If a significant change becomes necessary, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure.
