Consent on the Mat
Have you ever attended a yoga class where hands-on adjustments were offered? Did the teacher ask permission before touching you? Did you feel that opting out was a choice?
Consent On The Mat was founded in an effort to address the idea of building consent in yoga practice, where hands-on adjustments to practitioners are frequently offered by instructors. Though adjustments are common in yoga practice, a hands-on experience can become a barrier for some community members not comfortable receiving touch, including those who have experienced trauma, injuries, health concerns, or who simply prefer to opt out of physical contact that day.
Yoga is connection.
