Future of Yoga- Part 2 - Acting ethically in the classroom

Download the podcast here

I welcome Linda Baird to the podcast to talk about ethics in yoga. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the topic. We discuss how to be ethical in the classroom given that yoga teachers and yoga therapists have by nature of the job more power than their students. Linda emphasises that the most important concept in ethics is to have a relationship with your students. To genuinely care for them, to be aware of how they are doing in class, to ask questions to understand instead of assuming are some of the tips she gives. She also discusses ways to be ethical is large classes and how to be present and lead from the heart as a yoga teacher.
