GUIDING PRINCIPLES

We’re committed to creating safe and respectful yoga and wellbeing classes to cultivate health and wellness in children and teens. In order to do so, we adhere to guiding principles which set best practices for our programs, while not intending to supersede the policies and values of any individual, yoga studio, school, or other organisation.

We agree to uphold the following Guiding Principles:

  • We conduct ourselves in a professional and conscientious manner.

  • We teach Hatha Yoga, which includes breathing exercises, yoga poses, yoga-based games, and yoga relaxation.

  • We provide yoga and mindfulness to promote health and wellness of children and teens.

  • We call yoga poses by English names that do not have religious connotations and maintain secularism in all programs and resources.

  • We acknowledge the limitations of their skills and practice and, where appropriate, refer students to seek alternative instruction, advice, treatment or direction.

  • We value diversity and demonstrate this by respecting all participants regardless of age, physical limitations, race, creed, gender, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation.

  • We respect the rights, dignity and privacy of all students.
