AS PART OF THE INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION REGISTRATION PROCESS, I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
A. To become a Katherine Roberts’ Certified Yoga for Golfers® Instructor, I understand and agree that:
- I must attend, fully participate in, and successfully complete a certification course (Instructor Certification Program) presented by YFG, as more fully described in the course description materials available on the YFG website at www.yogaforgolfers.com.
- Attendance in the Instructor Certification Program and completion of program requirements will not assure that I receive Certification. Whether I have successfully completed the Instructor Certification Program will be determined by YFG (or its designees) in its sole discretion, based on my demonstrated command of the skills necessary to teach Katherine Roberts’ Yoga for Golfers® classes. I acknowledge and agree to the inherently subjective nature of this determination.
- I am aware that this Instructor Certification Program with Katherine Roberts is intended to provide me with more knowledge of yoga. I understand that the practice of yoga involves movement, stretching and exercise that may from time to time be extensive and strenuous and that there is consequently some risk of injury. I also understand that the program will be mixed level and I am responsible to judge my own capabilities with respect to practicing during each yoga class. By my participation in this Instructor Certification Program, I agree to take full responsibility for not exceeding my limits, and for any injury I might suffer during the practice of yoga.
I represent and warrant that I am physically fit and I have no medical condition that would prevent my full participation in the Instructor Certification Program. I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to ascertain, by consulting with a physician, that there is no medical reason to prevent my participation in this Instructor Certification Program. I also acknowledge that it is my responsibility to inform the instructor when I begin each class of any physical limitation, injury or other condition that might affect my ability to participate and to inform the instructor immediately if any injury occurs during the class.
I waive and release any claim that I might have at any time for injury or damages of any sort against Katherine Roberts, Yoga for Golfers® or Northstar Coaching, LLC, or any person or entity in any way involved therewith.

I understand and agree that I am prohibited from training or attempting to train anyone in how to teach the YFG System to others.
