Molly's story

After years of teaching and pondering the ethics of physical touch in yoga classes (including receiving many awesome and a few SUPER uncomfortable adjustments), I decided something needed to change.

I love giving and receiving hands-on assists...Most of the time. But sometimes as a student I just want to be left alone. Yet it can feel awkward to declare a formal "no" in the beginning of class, or to decline an adjustment as the teacher is beginning it!

I realized that if I, a relatively empowered gal adept at navigating the yoga scene, felt this way, many of my students probably did as well. And as a teacher, I wanted to offer assists ONLY if the student really wanted them...

I am drawn to using the cards because I really like to create a safe and positive place for my students to experience their practice. 

...Some people are uncomfortable finding their voice to say no to things that make them uncomfortable, so this will be a nice way to allow students to make the choice without directly having to tell me yes or no.

I was going to try to make my own, but yours are so beautiful and the price point was spot on.
