💗Spreading the love about Yoga Consent Cards! #Repost @leelakelley_ (yogaconsentcards.com)
"I am so happy the yoga studio I teach at, @putneymoves, is using yoga consent cards, made by local yoga hero, @mollykitchenyoga. Having these available for students feels SO great for a variety of reasons. Not all yoga teachers are naunced in the language of consent and touch, and I know that I have personally received adjustments in my experience as a student that have felt intrusive and, at worst, damaging, as well as adjustments that have felt safe and nourishing. I love that these cards encourage a much needed conversation around consent, touch, and personal autonomy in yoga classes (and beyond). As a bodyworker and contact dancer I LOVE touch, but often feel weary about giving adjustments in class -- with a clear Yes from a student, I feel more empowered to provide hands on assists. And with a clear No, I feel honored to respect personal boundaries. I hope all yoga studios use this tool. Its the small things that make a big difference..."
