S3.E10 {SOLO EPISODE}: Getting Real About Ethics in the Yoga Industry with Jessica Winderl

August 29, 2019
Whoa. This week, Jessica was called to speak on a topic that is serious and near to her heart, in hopes of inspiring new (and seasoned) yoga teachers to hold themselves and their communities to a higher standard. Hear real-world advice on how to protect yourself as a yoga teacher, in an unregulated profession that can be corrupted by power, sex, and money. Jessica illustrates why she is so passionate about this subject through some of her personal experiences, as well as offers her opinion on the ethical implications of recent events in the global yoga community. Tune in for a much needed, and possibly controversial, discussion as Jessica explains why she thinks the rational of “separate the man from the practice” is dangerous, and dismissive to victims of abuse in the yoga world landscape. Change starts now, and it starts with us!
