Welcome to MANASA YOGA!
The MANASA YOGA Website (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”) is designed to provide you with information about MANASA YOGA, our classes, workshops, yoga retreats, and our teaching training. Additionally the Website means to bring together a community of yogis who are dedicated to teaching and experiencing yoga. The Website is owned by MANASA YOGA (wholly owned by White Lotus Sdn. Bhd). These Terms & Conditions of Use (this “Agreement”) apply to all products and services offered by MANASA YOGA.
IMPORTANT COVID NOTICE: If you have just recently returned from the state of Sabah or from overseas, please refrain from booking an in-studio practice at MANASA YOGA until your quarantine period is over. Also, if you are feeling under the weather, please refrain from booking an in-studio practice.

By using the Website, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, whether you are a “Visitor” (which means that you simply browse the Website) or you are a “Student” (which means that you have registered on the Website as a student or customer). If you do not accept the terms of this Agreement, you should leave the Website and discontinue use of the Service immediately. We may modify this Agreement from time to time, and such modification shall be effective upon its posting on the Website. You agree to be bound by any modification to this Agreement when you use the Website after any such modification is posted; it is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly.

In consideration of your use of the Service, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form available on the Website (the “Registration Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update your Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.

All course materials (presentation slides, recording links and other documents) are proprietary and are meant for your individual use only. Please do not copy or otherwise distribute course materials or recordings. Your tuition is in exchange for one student’s participation. We understand and appreciate the economy of participating as a group. While we encourage group interaction and community development, we ask everyone participating to please register individually, and please confirm amongst each other that all members of your group are registered to attend. To the extent you are hoping to participate in a group and all members of the group are not registered or able to register, you may always contact us with requests for aid and/or scholarships. We do our best to accommodate all students who wish to join us for study. Accordingly, please do not share your login credentials with any third party.
- Health Disclaimer Physical exercise, in all of its forms and with or without the use of equipment such as blocks, straps or any other equipment that may be suggested by a MANASA YOGA teacher, is a strenuous physical activity. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. Your agreement acknowledges that you understand that in a yoga class you will progress at your own pace. If you experience any pain or discomfort, you will listen to your body, adjust the posture, use yoga props, and ask for support from the teacher. You will continue to breathe smoothly. If at any point you feel overexertion or fatigue, you will honor your body, respect its limitations, and rest before continuing your practice. Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not safe under certain medical conditions and this studio recommends that you consult with a doctor before beginning this or any exercise routine.
Accordingly, you are urged and advised to seek the advice of a physician before beginning any physical exercise regimen, routine, program or using any suggested equipment. MANASA YOGA is not a medical organization and its teachers or staff cannot give you medical advice or diagnosis. All suggestions and comments relating to the use of equipment, poses, moves and instruction are not required to be performed by you and are carried out at your election while engaging in MANASA YOGA offerings. Nothing contained in this Website or in our live programming should be construed as any form of such medical advice or diagnosis. By agreeing, you acknowledge that participation in yoga classes exposes you to a possible risk of personal injury. You are fully aware of this risk and hereby release MANASA YOGA, its owners, and/or its instructors from any and all liability, negligence or other claims arising from, or in any way connected with, your participation in yoga.
You affirm that you, alone, are responsible for deciding to practice yoga, and hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that you have now, or hereafter may have, against MANASA YOGA, its owners, and/or its teachers. Your agreement in checking the box upon checkout acknowledges that you shall not now or at any time in the future, bring any legal action against MANASA YOGA, its owners and/or its teachers; and that this waiver is binding on you, your heirs, your spouse, your children, your legal representatives, your successors and your assigns. Your agreement further verifies that you are physically fit and a licensed medical doctor has verified your physical condition for participation in this type of class. If you are pregnant, become pregnant or are post-natal, checking the box upon checkout verifies that you are participating in yoga classes with your doctor’s full approval. Your agreement is binding to this liability waiver from this day forth.

YOGA STUDENT WAIVER
By utilizing MANASA YOGA website and/or signing up to participate in our programs online or in person, I understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reduction and relief of muscular tension. Participation in yoga class includes, but is not limited to, participation in meditation techniques, yogic breathing techniques, and performing various yoga postures. Yoga postures (asanas) are designed to exercise every part of the body, toning the muscles, joints, spine and entire skeletal system. Yoga also works on the internal organs, glands and nerves, and incorporates sustained stretching to strengthen muscles and increase flexibility. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. My signature acknowledges that I understand that in a yoga class, I will progress at my own pace. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture, use yoga props, and ask for support from the teacher. I will continue to breathe smoothly. If at any point I feel overexertion or fatigue, I will honor my body, respect its limitations, and rest before continuing my practice. Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not safe under certain medical conditions and this studio recommends that you consult with a doctor before beginning this or any exercise routine.
I acknowledge that participation in yoga classes exposes me to a possible risk of personal injury. I am fully aware of this risk and hereby release MANASA YOGA, its owners, and/or its instructors from any and all liability, negligence or other claims arising from, or in any way connected with, my participation in yoga.
I affirm that I, alone, am responsible for deciding to practice yoga, and hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now, or hereafter may have, against MANASA YOGA, its owners, and/or its instructors. My signature acknowledges that I shall not now or at any time in the future, bring any legal action against MANASA YOGA, its owners and/or its instructors; and that this waiver is binding on me, my heirs, my spouse, my children, my legal representatives, my successors and my assigns. My signature further verifies that I am physically fit and a licensed medical doctor has verified my physical condition for participation in this type of class. If I am pregnant, become pregnant or am post-natal, my signature verifies that I am participating in yoga classes with my doctor’s full approval. My signature is binding to this liability waiver from this day forth.
AI hereby warrant that I am of full age and have the right to contract in my own name. I have read the above authorization, release, and agreement, prior to its execution, and I am fully familiar with the contents of this document.
This document shall be binding upon me and my heirs, legal representatives, and assigns.
