10:30 – 11:30 Yoga Ethics (Loren) – Integrating the Yamas and Niyamas into one’s daily life, Yoga Alliance Ethics Standards – Self-Study


  • Pick ONE of the Yamas and write a short essay on how that Yama could relate to your life as a yoga teacher.  We will discuss applying the Yamas and Niyamas to life and work as yoga teachers in our discussion.


  1. I preparation for our discussion, please read over the Ethical Commitment then carefully read all three sections of the Code of Conduct.  I realize that the entire Code of Conduct is pretty long and beyond what you can read in an hour of self study.  But, become familiar with it. And, read the Code of Conduct carefully.  We will discuss this in class as it is one of the guiding documents of our practice.
