As yoga teachers, our words are among our most powerful tools. In this video, I’d like to share some do’s and don’ts that have been effective in making language and asana cues more inclusive in my classes.
And even though I compiled this list, I’m not perfect. But I want my yoga classes to be not only body-positive, but also inclusive, trauma-sensitive, welcoming, and warm for everyone. I hope this list helps us all get a little closer to creating safer, braver spaces where yoga is available to all who wish to practice.
