4 CORE VALUES
Practice is Everything. Your personal practice is your greatest teaching asset.
Build It, Own It. Create a career on your own terms.
Student for Life. Never stop learning, never stop growing.
Serve Your Community. Share the powerful practices of yoga with others.
CODE OF ETHICS
Money Matters. All pricing, payment, and terms and conditions must be fair and easy to understand. Deceptive financial practices are unacceptable.
Teach Responsibly. Never attempt to treat, diagnose, or cure any disease or illness. We are yoga teaching professionals, not physicians or therapists.
Professional Conduct. Healthy boundaries are essential in yoga. Romantic relationships between students and teachers are forbidden and contractually disallowed.
Be of Service. Always put your students’ needs ahead of your own. We guide every student individually so they can find their own path.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Teachers are expected to treat student with respect at all times both on and off the mat. Under no circumstances is rude, disruptive, hateful, or offensive behavior permitted.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EDUCATORS
We teach from an inclusive, non-dogmatic view and welcome people of all religious beliefs. We welcome people of any gender, sexual orientation, and sexual identification. We embrace diversity and do not discriminate based on race or ethnicity. Students must be 14 years or older.
