What a great idea to gather a few different perspectives from a variety of yoga professionals to speak about scope of practice for the yoga teacher!
I enjoyed being invited to contribute to this piece, sharing my thoughts and reading and learning from the other contributors as well.
We address questions like:
  • What is the scope of practice for a yoga teacher?
  • Are there any common practices performed that could be out of scope?
  • Is there a difference in scope between a yoga teacher and a yoga therapist?
  • What are some strategies yoga teachers can adopt when a student’s needs fall outside their scope?
Contributors also included Larry Payne, Trina Altman, Rocky Heron, and Celest Pereira.
Thanks to Jenni Rawlings and Travis Pollen for inviting me to contribute to this piece!
