Code of Conduct
THE CONVERSATION: How should ethics be applied to teaching yoga today?
A Code of Conduct will lay the foundation for safe yoga education. As educators and practitioners we know that non-harming, honesty, and inclusiveness are prerequisites for student safety. We believe that the gifts of yoga are better served when supported with a solid ethical foundation.
We have brought together a diverse spectrum of expert advisory voices to maximize the perspectives and resources within this area of inquiry. They represent one stream of input in the process — represented in the timeline activities below — alongside the thousands of voices inside and outside of yoga who have already contributed their viewpoints through a comprehensive survey, focus groups, online discussions, and other channels that will continue to be offered through the duration of this project.
