The mission of Safe Studio Project is to prevent sexual misconduct in yoga studios through raising awareness, providing education, and offering support and resources to studio owners and teachers.
Why do we need the Safe Studio Project?
For many practitioners, yoga brings up powerful feelings that may put them in a vulnerable position, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Whether a student is coming to their mat to gain physical strength and flexibility, or they are looking for healing from painful experiences, yoga studios must be safe spaces for students and teachers.
The Safe Studio Project was created to ensure that studio owners and teachers receive the support, training, and resources they need to create and maintain safe studio environments.
Yoga students deserve to practice in yoga studios where teachers are trained in preventing sexual misconduct. By listing the names of member studios and teachers on our website, we can help to raise awareness about yoga communities that are following our Code of Conduct.
