Scope of Practice
THE CONVERSATION: What is a yoga teacher and what defines their practice?
A Scope of Practice is necessary to protect the public and clarify the role of yoga teachers in contemporary society. What is a yoga teacher, and what defines their practice? How is it different in the many environments in which they work?
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.
