Train More Inclusive Yoga Teachers
It’s no secret that most yoga communities lack diversity. Look around your studio and yoga teacher training program. The people you see are probably young, thin, white, affluent and able-bodied, but the face of yoga is changing. How can you ensure that the graduates of your yoga teacher training program are prepared to teach people who look or move differently than them?
