  • as intended through the normal functionality of the Humming Puppy Uscreen Service; and
  • for Streaming (“Streaming“ or “Stream“ means a contemporaneous digital transmission of an audiovisual work via the Internet from the Humming Puppy Service to a user’s device in such a manner that the data is intended for real-time viewing and not intended to be copied, stored, permanently downloaded, or redistributed by the user).

In order to be able to Stream or download Humming Puppy Content from the Service and to view Humming Puppy Content on the Service, you will need to use a personal computer, portable media player, or other device that meets the system and compatibility requirements that we establish from time to time and is otherwise capable of interacting with the Service (each such device, a “Compatible Device“). We may change the requirements for Compatible Devices from time to time and, in some cases, whether a device is (or remains) a Compatible Device may depend on software or systems provided or maintained by the device manufacturer or other third parties. As a result, devices that are Compatible Devices at one time may cease to be Compatible Devices in the future.


3. Health Disclaimer

A physical yoga practice, with or without the use of equipment such as blocks, straps or any other equipment that may be suggested by a Humming Puppy teacher, is a strenuous physical activity. Accordingly, you are urged and advised to seek the advice of your doctor or treating practitioner before beginning any physical exercise regimen, routine, program, or using any suggested equipment shown in any of the video clips on the Service.

Humming Puppy is not a medical organisation and its teachers 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 viewing Humming Puppy videos. Nothing contained in the Service should be construed as any form of such medical advice or diagnosis.

By agreeing to these terms you accept that you have no detrimental medical or physical conditions that you are not aware of that may prevent you from participating in our classes.

By using the Service, you represent that you understand that physical exercise such as yoga asana involves strenuous physical movement, and that such activity carries the risk of injury whether physical or mental. You understand that it is your responsibility to judge your physical and mental capabilities for such activities. It is your responsibility to ensure that by participating in classes, Immersives, courses, programs and activities from Humming Puppy, you will not exceed your limits while performing such activity, and you will select the appropriate level of activity for your skills and abilities, as well as for any mental or physical conditions and/or limitations you have. You understand that, from time to time, teachers may suggest physical adjustments or use of equipment and it is your sole responsibility to determine if any such suggested adjustment or equipment is appropriate for your level of ability and physical and mental condition.


4. Release of Liability

By agreeing to these terms, you recognise there are certain inherent risks as outlined above associated in performing the moves and poses as instructed in the Service and you assume full responsibility for personal injury to yourself and (if applicable) your family members, and further release and discharge Humming Puppy for injury, loss or damage arising out of your or your family’s use of the Service, whether caused by the fault of yourself, your family, Humming Puppy or other third parties. You expressly waive and release any claim that you may have at any time for injury of any kind against Humming Puppy, or any person or entity involved with Humming Puppy, including without limitation its directors, instructors, independent contractors, employees, agents, affiliates and representatives.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Humming Puppy, its subsidiaries, affiliates, subcontractors, officers, directors, employees, consultants, representatives and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorneys’ fees and costs) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that one of your submissions of Content caused damage to a third party. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement and your use of the Service.

You agree that practising with us involves a risk of minor and major injury, soft tissue injury, broken bones and joint injuries and that you practise using the instruction provided in the Service at your own risk.

You agree not to hold yourself out as a certified yoga instructor based on completing any of the content available on the Service or use Humming Puppy’s name as a certification or accreditation body for purposes of teaching yoga.
