Please read carefully; your submission of this form will be taken to indicate your understanding and acceptance of the following:
Please take care when filling in this questionnaire and check the contents are accurate before you submit it. By submitting the questionnaire, you are confirming that the contents are true and accurate to the best of your knowledge. Please notify your teacher of any changes to your responses in this healthcare questionnaire before participating in classes subsequent to those changes.
Neither your teacher nor the British Wheel of Yoga are qualified to express an opinion that you are fit to safely participate in any British Wheel of Yoga organised sessions or any British Wheel of Yoga trained teacher’s yoga classes. You must obtain professional or specialist advice from your doctor before participating if you are in any doubt.
All British Wheel of Yoga, Accredited Group teachersor Recognised Teachers are appropriately qualified, with high standards of teaching and best practice. Where possible, your teacher may offer suitable modifications or adjustments and practices to suit different levels of experience and ability.
Please always let the teacher know before the class if this is your first time practicing yoga or if you are not confident about your experience and/or ability. Where you are taking part in live-streamed classes, please note that the instructor may not be able to see you at all times. Where you have declared a health condition, please contact the teacher before the class if you would like to request that you are provided with suitable modifications or adjustments wherever possible. Please note, where you are taking part in a pre-recorded class, you will not be able to request specific adjustments or modifications.
In all classes whether face to face, live streamed remote or pre-recorded remote, always follow your teacher’s safety instructions and listen to your body. Where a movement or class is beyond your experience or ability, feels too difficult for you, or you experience any physical or emotional discomfort, please do not continue.
If you do not return this questionnaire to your teacher prior to taking part in one of our classes, your teacher will assume that you do not have any existing health conditions or concerns to declare. Please contact your teacher immediately if your circumstances change or speak with your yoga teacher prior to taking part in a class if you have any concerns. Your teacher will be unable to make modifications or adjustments to the exercises for health conditions or concerns that are not declared. Your teacher will not be responsible where you fail to return the health questionnaire, or where you do not declare a health condition to your teacher or to BWY (whether by returning the questionnaire or in some other communication), and an issue arises as a result.
