Please take care when filling in this questionnaire and check the contents are accurate before you submit it.

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 of our yoga instructors are appropriately qualified or British Wheel of Yoga Accredited teachers, 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 discomfort, please do not continue the movement or class.
This form is to be completed by yoga class participants for face to face and remote teaching. All information given will be treated in the strictest confidence and stored in accordance with General Data Protection legislation. Although there are tremendous benefits to overall health and wellbeing, yoga can be physically challenging. It carries with it risks that cannot entirely be eliminated. These include the risk of personal injury. The exacerbation of existing injuries or conditions. And also damage to property around you during your participation. Please note that although you may appear on video link during the live stream of the class, the instructor may not be able to see you clearly or instruct you individually as is possible in a face to face teaching scenario.
If you need to amend your contact details, emergency contact information or have new health information that you wish to share with me so that I can take it into consideration when teaching you, please fill in this form.
