What you'll learn in this yoga class:

Teaching yoga in today's society calls for special consideration around language and adaptations to ensure that all students feel welcome and safe. Inclusion is the art of being sensitive to the words, cues, and adaptations that yoga teachers use during class. During this workshop for yoga teachers of all traditions, Lila Lolling (ERYT500) will explore how to make yoga classes more inclusive, inviting, and safe for people who are gender fluid and/or have experienced personal trauma.
