Once you are done with this book, you will be confident to lead a practice that is safe, nourishing, and transformative. You will learn how to avoid common pitfalls such as overstepping boundaries, body shaming, non-consensual touch, misinformation, and discover the best yoga practices to teach (and what to avoid) for mental health.

This is the perfect read for all yoga teachers as well as teachers in training.
