Yoga Ethics

Yoga is an integrated way of life, which includes moral and ethical standards. Some of these standards are encoded in the first two limbs of the Ashtanga yoga eight-limb path, as well as other yoga scriptures. As a profession, many of these same virtues have been codified into studio and teacher training policies. Thus it is reasonable to expect contemporary yoga instructors to conduct their lives in consonance with these same moral and ethical guidelines or principles. As a Teacher Training program, we expect no less of our teacher trainees. We take these ethics seriously and expect our graduates to not only represent High Peaks Hot Vinyasa 200 hour Teacher Training, but Yoga as a whole. Therefore, it is with great seriousness that we espouse the following moral code to live, teach and practice Yoga by:

    1. We are committed to practicing Yoga as a way of life.
    1. We are committed to maintaining impeccable standards of professional competence and integrity.
    1. We dedicate ourselves to a through and continuing study and practice of Yoga.
    1. We are committed to avoiding substance abuse and, if for some reason we succumb to chemical dependency, we will stop teaching until we are free again from drug and/or alcohol abuse.
    1. We will accurately represent our education, training and experience relevant to our teaching of Yoga.
    1. We are committed to promoting the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of our students.
    1. We will abstain from giving medical advice, or advice that could be interpreted as such, unless we have the necessary medical qualifications.
    1. We particularly embrace the ideal of truthfulness in dealing with students and others.
    1. We are willing to accept students with physical disabilities, providing we have the skill to teach those students properly.
    1. We are willing to instruct all students irrespective of their race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and/or socio-economic status.
    1. We will treat all students with respect.
    1. We will never force our own opinions on students but appreciate the fact that every individual is entitled to his or her worldview, ideas and beliefs. At the same time, however, we must communicate to our students that Yoga seeks to achieve a deep-level transformation of the human personality, including attitudes and ideas. If a student is not open to change or if a student's opinions seriously impede the process of communicating yoga teachings to him or her, then we are free to refuse to work for that individual and, if possible, find an amicable way of dissolving the teaching relationship.
    1. We will avoid any forms of sexual harassment of students.
    1. We will seek immediate counsel of peers before ever entering a consensual sexual relationship with a present or former student.
    1. We will make every effort to avoid exploiting the trust and potential dependency of students and instead encourage them to find greater inner freedom.
  1. We strive to practice tolerance toward other yoga instructors, schools and traditions. When criticism has to be brought, this should be done in fairness and with appropriate regard for the facts.
