As a yoga student at Mandala Yoga, you have the right to:
Be in charge of your own body. We won’t force you to
do anything you don’t want to because you are the best expert on you and
Ask questions. If something doesn’t make sense to
you, get our attention and we’ll be very happy to help.
Practice yoga in exactly the body you have today,
regardless of your age, shape, size, race, gender identity or expression,
ability, etc. We? subscribe to a Health at Every Size philosophy, which is
based on the simple premise that the best way to be healthy is to honor your
body. We support people in adopting health habits for the sake of health and
well-being (rather than weight control).
Not be touched without your enthusiastic consent. We
do our best to use words to create a safe environment for everyone. If
there’s ever a time where we feel we need to touch you to help you be safe
in a pose, we will ask for your clear and enthusiastic consent.
If that’s not good with you, we will walk away; no questions asked.

reserving conversation until after class.
Right to dedicate my practice to an intention inward
