Welcome Yogis!

listen to NINA'S INTERVIEW WITH QUARTZY!

Food for Thought (ELLE.com)

"Instruction in many methods involves hands-on adjustments to correct students’ postures, which can make it easy to get away with sexual misconduct in a class setting. Then there’s the emotional vulnerability involved with learning a practice so closely associated with wellbeing and spirituality—and the fact that yoga teachers are not required to be background-checked or held accountable by any single governing body." A perfect storm?

“I’ve been using the flip-chips for several months in yoga classes and on yoga retreats. Both the students and I feel empowered! I’ve noticed that the flip-chips inspire practitioners to be more thoughtful and sensitive to their own needs, to consider themselves afresh each time they practice. Flip-chips give me the confidence to know that my assists are welcome.”

"I would not consider holding a yoga class or designing a trauma-informed yoga program that did not require the use of the flip-chips. They deliver the message: you are welcomed, accepted, and respected just as you are—a message everyone deserves to hear, especially before stepping onto their mat."

Dr. Nicole Fava, Assistant Professor, Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work, Florida International University

"I love using the flip-chip when I teach because it lets members have a voice as to whether they are comfortable with assistance in class when I am teaching. They are easy to use and quite cute. They are great especially if you are working with new students and do not have an opportunity to chat with them before class."

Jessica Fasulo, Yoga Teacher, Lifetime Fitness, Las Vegas NV

"Thank you for your innovation. My dream is that ALL yoga studios will have a stack of these one day! You are starting a necessary revolution in yoga studios that will make attendance safe as well as fully allow students to be present during class and not distracted with anxiety or worry or fear about a teacher coming over and adjusting them - if they don't want that!"

Molly Boeder Harris, The Breathe Network

"Thank you for asking” were the powerful words gifted to me by a student when I offered flip-chips in my class this week.  As a psychotherapist and yoga teacher, I find it immensely important to refrain from making assumptions, even well-intentioned ones about the needs of our students.  Instead, we have the capacity to help our students heal by assisting them to develop and utilize their own voice as practitioners and human beings. Flip-chips are an easy and accessible way to fulfill that mission."

Elizabeth Haberer, LCSW, CGP, RYT, Houston, TX

Paradigm Shift

Yoga Puts Consent at its Core

We introduced the Yoga Flip-Chip in 2012, at a Yoga Journal Conference in Estes Park, Colorado. Back then, consent-based yoga lived on the very outer fringes of our cultural galaxy. How things have changed in a few short years! Thanks to #MeToo and countless initiatives such as Yoga Alliance's Standards Review Project, consent-based yoga is rapidly becoming the norm. We're proud to have played a small part in this very important evolution.
