Our Position on Other Points

It’s important to note that we are only looking for yoga and meditation instructors. We are not here to act as medical professionals, dieticians, spiritual advisors or coaches for energy work. We are here to instruct yoga in such a way that allows yoga participants space to find their own way.

 

We absolutely do not touch students in the yoga room at Junction Hot Yoga. This is for the safety of both the instructor and the yoga student: 

  • Even expert yoga teachers with decades of practice have been known to injure students in an off moment. 

  • Consent is complex and we do not agree that “consent cards" etc. are adequate.

  • Some students might have experienced trauma making touching uncomfortable.

  • Participants might not appreciate getting an adjustment on just one side and not the other.

Instructors may not teach nor practice at Junction Hot Yoga while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
