Please note that as a teacher I consider my role to be one of guidance and support. I hold dear the reality that each person's needs and abilities vary and thus the practices offered in my classes are suggestions and completely optional. You are welcome to come out of poses that are not serving you, opt out of any meditation or breath work that does not serve you, and to ask for guidance as needed. I simply ask that you are present, and willing to practice and move from an honest place. I use hands on adjustment "consent cards" in all of my classes. These cards give students the opportunity to communicate with me their preferences for hands on assistance. Also, please be aware I will never incorporate partner yoga or group work into a class unless it is explicitly stated in the class description.
