A yoga client intake form is used by yoga instructors to obtain students’ information before beginning private or group yoga classes. It records information that helps instructors fit their courses to a student’s particular needs, such as their preferred style, previous yoga experience, areas of interest, and objectives or goals. The form also includes a liability waiver holding the student responsible for ensuring their own safety during classes.

Registering as a Yoga Instructor

There are no regulations in the U.S. requiring yoga instructors to be licensed or certified. However, many studios prefer to hire instructors that are registered with the Yoga Alliance or those who have completed an approved training course.

Why Use an Intake Form

Intake forms are recommended as they inform instructors of any potential risks, such as a new student’s medical history or current physical shape. As yoga can be a physically strenuous activity, the form provides a liability waiver requiring students to monitor themselves during class and avoid any dangerous or harmful movements or activities. The form is a useful tool for instructors to provide students with a safe and effective yoga experience.
