Ethics in the Yoga Community: Panel Discussions

In the current climate of inappropriate and harmful use of power, no community has been left unscathed. Yoga communities should be in the business of healing, breaking down barriers, and lifting up, but it has become clear that the lines have been severely blurred.

In this 4-week series we will raise awareness (and funds) under the large umbrella of upholding ethics in the yoga community. Topics will include “Trauma Awareness ”, “Power of the Teacher”, “Victimization, Blaming and Shaming”, and “What is Abuse, on and off the Mat?”.

We will come together for an all-levels mindful slow flow class, followed by a mediation and panel discussion with members of the greater Charlotte yoga community and beyond.

The intention is to shift the narrative, empower us all with clear boundaries, and to begin the conversation to strengthen, include, and benefit the total community.

All interested students, teachers, and community members are welcome. CEU’s will be available for teachers through Yoga Alliance. This event is FREE, but we will be accepting donations for a local organization.
