About this Event

Do No Harm; Creating Safe Spaces Through Instruction was born out of my passion and love for my students (who are also my teachers). In the time I have been teaching, I have done a lot wrong. I have ended up in hard situations and learned immensely through them (and through my teachers) how to create a safe environment for students. I will not pretend to have all the answers but- a lot of the information in this workshop is information I wish I had known sooner. It allowed me to be a more mindful instructor and the best thing we can do with gained knowledge is to share it, which is truly my only goal. I would also love this to be an open space for instructors to learn from each other.

Workshop topics will include:

  • Assisting with compassion and knowledge of your student
  • Mindful sequencing that focuses on allowing students to get into a peak pose safely
  • Sensitivity to language used in verbal cues
  • Teaching what you know to be true in your own body and mind
  • Dharma talks and the seeds they plant
  • Awareness of the energy we bring into a space
  • Teacher/student conflicts
  • The ego and ahimsa

What is included:

  • 2 hours of information including open dialogue between teachers
  • A safe place to share your stories and concerns
  • A digital PDF of all the information presented as well as additional resources and articles to further your exploration

What to bring:

  • A journal
  • Your mat
  • Anything you need to be comfortable. Dress warm and cozy, bring a bolster or a pillow etc!
  • Your lovely energy
