“…a good yoga instructor will get you to touch your toes; a great instructor will remove the desire…” 
How Yoga Works

 

We are not here to FIX anyone

No one is broken

​​

Yoga is in EVERY BODY, we are here to reveal it.

Safety

Conditions of safety must be met in order for Yoga to happen.

  • Always choose safety first

  • Get to know your students

  • Follow medical restrictions of each student

  • Remind students they do not have to do every pose

  • It is not what the pose looks like, it is what the pose feels like. We look for sensation/s

  • The instructor adapts NOT the student

  • Adjusting the class to fit the student/s

  • Be cognizant of your own safety

  • If you are not safe in your own body, you can injure your student and yourself
