Ethics for Teachers with Judith Lasater

Teaching yoga is a great privilege and responsibility! With an ethical approach that includes compassion, respect, boundaries, and clarity, yoga teachers can honor the gift of yoga, exemplify the yoga teachings, and share their best selves with the world.

Topics include:

  1. Embodying the Yamas and Niyamas
  2. Kindness as the root of ethics
  3. Boundaries and ethics
  4. Personal agency of students in their yoga practice
  5. Self-work and the personal journey of a yoga teacher
