Learn how to craft and language a yoga class that is truly welcoming for students of all shapes, sizes, and abilities. Yoga teachers’ workshops with me will include both practical asana instruction and discussion. Together, we’ll explore how to create inclusive, welcoming, and equitable spaces, and examine how to break down barriers to wellness.
We’ll debunk stereotypes and discuss how to create an environment of safety, agency, and consent. We’ll also explore common challenges faced by larger-bodied students. We’ll practice asana modifications and ways to use yoga props to help your students get the most out of your class.
I will speak from my experience as both a larger-bodied yoga student and teacher, and together we’ll build a toolbox to make your classes more welcoming and inclusive. Bring any and all questions that you might hesitate to ask your students about how to make the practice work for them – we’ll troubleshoot them together in this body-positive yoga lab setting.
This workshop will take place at:
