Just Be Yoga adopts the code of ethics and code of conduct created by Yoga Alliance. Yoga Alliance is a national organization that registers yoga teachers and yoga teacher schools who have complied with their required educational standards. Yoga Alliance sets the standards for both teachers and programs.
Code of Ethics for Yoga Teachers
As a Yoga instructor, I will strive to live in accordance with the principles of Yoga. To the best of my ability, I will adhere to the precepts of the yamas and niyamas, which include non-violence, truthfulness, and purity. As I am dedicated to the well being of my students, I will conduct myself with integrity in all my interactions with them. I will present my qualifications honestly and share the teachings with humility and respect. I will do my best to keep up with my yoga practice both for my personal growth and to be a good example for my students. I realize that it is a privilege to serve in this way, and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so.
