In consideration of being permitted to participate in any way in Breathwork with Christa Biegler, I, the undersigned, hereby acknowledge, understand, and expressly agree to the following: 

(1) Breathwork can result in intense physical and emotional release.

(2) Breathwork is not advised for persons with mental illness/psychiatric disorders or seizure disorders or for persons using major medications. It is also unsuitable for anyone with a personal or family history of aneurysms. Pregnant women are advised against practicing Breathwork without first consulting and getting approval from their primary care physician. Persons with asthma should bring their inhaler and consult with their primary care physician and Breathwork class facilitator. This work is deeply experiential. It may involve intense and energetic emotional release.
