Is a Yoga liability waiver effective in protecting my business?

Yes, a waiver of liability is very important in helping to protect your liability in the event that someone sustains an injury. It can be an absolutely integral part of your ability to limit your exposure to risk and getting sued. And most importantly, it communicates the risks and the activities that you're doing with your participants. So everyone's on the same page before you begin.

If a yoga class member who had signed our waiver is injured and they sue, how does the waiver actually work?

A waiver actually works in a couple of ways: 1.) before a lawsuit is filed during the demand letter stage, a waiver of liability would be shown to a complainant to demonstrate that they actually cannot bring a lawsuit because legally they are unable to because they've already signed away their legal rights or they've relinquished their legal rights.

In the event that something would escalate and go to court, or some form of tribunal, the waiver of liability would be included as evidence to support that the person understood they knew what they were doing, what the risks were, and that they could suffer injuries from the activity.

What makes an effective waiver for a yoga instructor or yoga studio?

The most important thing for a waiver of liability (for yoga instruction) is that it has all of the elements of a waiver of liability included and that it's as specific as possible, to the way that the services are offered, and the equipment that's used, and all the different types of yoga that is being done.

Is it okay to copy a yoga waiver template from another source?

It is not okay to copy a yoga waiver from another source. A waiver is like a seatbelt. It can only protect you if it's professionally installed - if someone else copies a waiver of liability that's not specific to your activities and your needs and may not have all of the elements of a waiver, it’s as good as not using one at all.

Would I need a different waiver based on the state where I do business?

No, you would not need a different waiver based on the state but you do have to make sure that the document is drafted to be state specific.

Should my waiver for my yoga classes differ based on the services I offer?

Yes, your waivers for your yoga classes should differ based on the services offered.

Should I combine my membership agreement together with my waiver or should they be separate agreements?

No, your waiver should always be separate, full stop, no question. The waiver should always be a separate document.

Can I talk to an attorney about my legal questions without spending a lot of money?

Yes, you can talk to an attorney without spending a lot of money. It depends what attorney you find and what their focus is in, but always make sure that you get a clear understanding of what a conversation will cost you. At Conscious Counsel, we offer free consultations for people who are interested in working together.

How much does it cost to have an attorney help me write a custom waiver for my yoga business?

We draft custom, yoga-specific waivers at www.LawIsFun.com for under $500. Custom Yoga Legal Agreements are also available.

Collect Your Yoga Liability Waivers Simply & Quickly

Since students and attendees can’t participate until they’ve signed, requiring participants to sign on paper can delay the start of a class or make check-in a bit more of a hassle. With digital waivers, sharing the form happens with a single link, and signing happens online, so they can sign anywhere, anytime—even weeks in advance. You can even collect electronic signatures on other documents such as a membership agreement or payment agreement.

How to Gather the Right Information with Each Waiver

Make it easy on yourself with digital waivers that are easy to customize, easy to change, and easy for guests to fill out. Require whatever information you need (for legal, marketing, or other purposes), and collect it accurately and legibly every time.

Improve and Simplify Your Check-In Process

First impressions are critical. Rather than immediately providing papers to sign upon arrival, give your students the opportunity to read your class waiver form before signing it. You’ll make the check-in process faster by reducing the paperwork required upon arrival and make it easier to account for all the signed waivers.
