As part of Yoga Therapy, Rachel may suggest Ayurvedic practices, which shift the body towards health and balance. Ayurveda is an Indian mind-body health system and uses dietary recommendations and herbal remedies. Rachel is not a licensed physician, nor are Yoga Therapy services licensed by the state. Rachel Lanzerotti has certification in Yoga Therapy from the Essential Yoga Therapy Therapist Training Program, in Fall City, WA and is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). Her method of treatment, Yoga Therapy, is an alternative or complementary form of healing arts. Under Sections 2053.5 and 2053.6 of California’s Business and Professions Code, I understand that Rachel can offer me these services, subject to requirements and restrictions that are described fully in the document entitled “California State Senate Bill SB 577 – What It Means for Patients.” If I ever have any concerns about the nature of my treatment, I will discuss them with Rachel. I understand that she recommends that I inform my medical doctor or other primary care provider that I am participating in Yoga Therapy, especially if I am under medical care for any condition. California state law requires that I acknowledge receipt of this information and receive a copy. Rachel will keep the original in her records for at least 3 years.

By my participation, I agree to assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries, or damages, known or unknown that I might incur in such practice.

During a class, if at any time I feel that instructions or class activities present any risk of injury to me, or if I feel tired or otherwise unable to perform class activities, I will inform the instructor and refrain from activities in question.
