03 Nov Listen To Your Inner Teacher
From a young age, we are taught to notify our parents or people of authority if someone touches us inappropriately. In focusing on one-on-one sessions, I have heard many students talking about how they experienced something like this as a child and their parents dismissed them.
At BambooMoves, we do hand on assists. As a teacher I often just lay my hands on someone to send love and inspiration to guide their awareness. I feel that touch is often one of the best healing mechanisms. However, I know some do not like this so we honor that too. Yoga is about building awareness and strength.
These tools are not just on the physical level, but on all levels. To have strength means to use your voice to express how you feel and what you need. It also means having the strength to listen and honor someone’s requests.
If you have a feeling, a gut instinct, please let someone know. the practice awakens your inner teacher (awareness), be respectful to that teacher above any other. At BambooMoves, we do not approve of relationships between teachers and students, or any behavior that makes our students feel uncomfortable. We cherish the sacred principles of the 8 limbs of yoga and want everyone to feel safe. We are here to listen and create a sacred space for all to come together.
