We’re a community of people who practice yoga.
Our foundation of practice is Ashtanga Yoga.
We’re a bunch of people from all walks of life, and what we have in common is that we use a system of practice designed to foster an understanding of yoga.
This practice is Ashtanga. It means eight limbs.
Our House Rules
The yoga club is a community of practitioners. These general rules are how we operate and what we expect for continued membership.
A Little More
We Teach Yoga
We offer education in yoga practices that are of varied antiquity and focus. What they have in common is that they offer evidenced-based effectiveness across varied desirable outcomes. Things like general well being, pain reduction, stress, athleticism, happiness, etc.
There are a lot of ways to practice yoga, and we try to remain respectful and broad in our mindset, while recognizing Ashtanga as a guiding framework.
Our teachers are practitioners.
Each of our teachers are practitioners with specialized skills from extensive training.
As an organization, our diversity makes us stronger. Our strengths and skills are different.
It is important for each of our teachers to be aware of their own scope of practice, and we will respectfully refer out when necessary.
Our aim is to provide education in an ethical and honest way.
Consent Focused and Trauma Informed
Though our teachers are trained in hands-on adjustments, members are always welcome to opt-out entirely, opt-out after a while or to change their minds and opt-back-in at any time. Our teachers are given the same grace, and may choose to assist/not assist at any time.
It’s rare to get to meet a whole room of folks who are working to increase their capacity for compassion and peace. It’s a real gift, and that’s what the yoga club is.
We respect the sovereignty of all practitioners, and denounce bias and bigotry of all all stripes including (but not limited to!) age, race, sexuality, status, gender identity, national identity, or religious identity.
