acknowledgement of risk and assumption of personal responsibility
You are going to participate in activities higher in risk than most people encounter in their daily routine. For your own personal safety and the well being of all participants in your course, you should start thinking about the importance of safety now. During the course, your instructor will frequently discuss with you the basic rules of wilderness safety and train you in the proper use of equipment, safety systems and procedures. Following those instructions and exercising common sense reduce danger. However, it is impossible to eliminate all hazards or to guarantee against all risks. As a member of an adventure group, you must promote personal responsibility for your own safety and the safety of the other participants on your course by following instructions, acting prudently, and exercising good judgement. To emphasize these critically important points, we ask that you (and for those of you under the age of 21, your parents or guardian) read, sign, and return to us the following description of activities and the acknowledgment of risk.
Although The INbound School of Yoga has taken reasonable steps to provide you with appropriate equipment and skilled instructors so you can enjoy an activity for which you may not be skilled, we wish to remind you this activity is not without risk. Certain risks cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of this activity. The same elements that contribute to the unique character of this activity can be causes of loss or damage to your equipment, accidental injury, illness, or in extreme cases, permanent trauma or death. We do not want to frighten you or reduce your enthusiasm for this activity, but we do think it is important for you to know in advance what to expect and to be informed of the inherent risks. The following describes some, but not all, of those activities and risks. 
As a participant on any INbound course, you may, but are not limited to, participation in the following activities: transportation to and from course area by bus, van, jeep, or small airplane; cooking over gas stoves or open fires; eating food prepared by local villagers; sleeping in the outdoors, at the homes of villagers or in improvised shelters; drinking water treated with iodine, boiled/filtered, or, should you choose, untreated; carrying your own gear and equipment needed by your crew; hiking across rugged terrain, scrambling, balancing and climbing over rocks and along precipitous trails; crossing turbulent streams; performing daily strenuous activity for long periods of time; being exposed to rain, lightning, heat, cold, dryness, high altitudes, rock slides, falling rocks; living among trees, insects, wild plants and animals and possible natural hazards, risks and dangers inherent in wilderness environments. You will also be in remote areas, hours and sometimes days away from hospitals or other emergency medical facilities. Your instructor, certified in CPR and Advance First Aid, and equipped with an expedition first aid kit, will be your only care provider in the field and will make decisions about the need for emergency evacuations. You, your instructor and your group will make all decisions in the wilderness setting thereby facing risks associated with group and individual judgement and error. On most courses, you will participate in a solo exercise where you will remain in a designated area for one to three days with minimal food and periodic check-ups by instructors. You may also rock climb up steep rock faces and rappel down cliffs from as high as 200 feet.
During the white-water rafting portions of your expedition, you will paddle much of the day, be exposed to several major rapids and encounter powerful currents and river hydraulics. At various times, you and your crew members may take on the responsibility of captaining your boat through rapids and of working as a member of a group safety system. You will hike with a heavy pack at altitudes which may exceed 12,000 ft., climb peaks, passes or canyon trails with exposure to high, steep overhangs, use ropes to cross ravines, swift rivers and streams; and have the responsibility as part of a safety system. On most courses you will engage in a course phase without direct supervision of your instructor. 
All the above activities have inherent risks including but not limited to serious and sometimes fatal burns, falls, bites, broken bones, dislocations, contusions, sprains, spinal injuries, concussions, frostbite, hypothermia, drowning, sunburn, disease, infections, cardiac arrest, strangulation, exhaustion, dehydration, chest and abdominal injuries, and psychological trauma. Your instructor, certified in CPR and Advanced First Aid, and equipped with a course first aid kit, will be your only care provider in the field. They will make decisions about the need for care and emergency evacuations. You therefore face risks associated with group and individual judgement and error.
