If I experience pain or difficulty that is cause for concern during or after practicing the meditation exercises, I understand that I should stop immediately and consult my healthcare provider before continuing on with the meditation exercises. I recognize that I may also choose to do physical movement, such as sitting, standing and walking meditation. I represent and warrant that I will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations before class. If I am pregnant, become pregnant or I am post-natal or post-surgical, my signature below verifies that I have my physician’s approval to participate.
