Every Yoga Teacher Needs To Listen To This | Is Your Class A Safe Place? {58}

Is your yoga class safe? I'm not talking about headstands here, folks. I'm talking about getting into the shoes of students to understand if they feel safe to enter a public yoga place. The surprise for many yoga teachers? They don't. I talk to Gwen Soffer and Melissa Lucchesi about creating safer public yoga classes - classes where ALL students feel safe to heal regardless of their history. Traditional yoga practices such as hands-on assists create an unsafe environment for many people with a past history of trauma. If you think that's a tiny few, you're wrong. As many as 1 in 4  of students may have a trauma history. The solutions are pretty simple, but it will take a change of culture for yoga studios. Every yoga teacher should listen to this powerful conversation - regardless of experience. Please share this with every yoga teacher you know so that we can start the conversation far and wide... ...and make yoga classes safer for everyone.  Learn more about Gwen and Melissa's work at
