This MBSR Course includes skill training in relaxation and meditation methods as well as gentle stretching (yoga) exercises. During the Course I will be asked to practice these appropriate to my abilities. I understand that if for any reason I am unable to, or think it unwise to engage in these techniques and exercises either during the weekly sessions at the MBSR Course or at home, I am under no obligation to engage in these techniques nor will I hold the instructors liable for any injuries incurred from these exercises. This Course is designed to help me learn these skills appropriately and to never push beyond my capabilities. This Course is in no way a substitute for medical care or psychotherapy. I have provided the Instructors with all relevant information about my medical care.
