Everyone who benefits from healing through yoga

We are asking you to sign this petition to protect and restore dignity to this old tradition. The principle of non-violence lies at the heart of yoga, calling us always to treat all others as we wish to be treated ourselves, with kindness and compassion and free from violence in thought, word or action. As yoga teachers and therapists, we have the responsibility to refrain from abusing our position or power and exploiting anybody for serving our self-interest without respect and concern for the their situation.

There is a crisis in confidence in some yoga traditions. We want a Code of Ethics to be adopted worldwide and restore dignity and respect.

Signed,

Julia Beelong
