Firefly Yoga International is a nonprofit which uses yoga as the public health intervention for survivors of trauma. In addition to offering trauma-informed yoga programming to survivors, they also facilitate a 30-hour training for yoga teachers to learn the principles and practice of teaching trauma-informed yoga. They talk extensively about the pros and cons of hands on assists and with the flip-chip they now have a solution to put in the hands of trainees!
Firefly Yoga International would like to extend its gratitude to Yoga Flip-chip! As recently highlighted in Yoga Journal, Yoga Flip-Chip offers bamboo (and canvas) chips to be used in yoga class, marked as "Assist" on one side and "No Hands-On Assist" on the other. These chips empower students with more choice in consenting, or not consenting, to physical assists from the teacher. In addition to donating a couple bamboo sets to Firefly, Yoga Flip-Chip is also offering a discount on orders to those who complete the Firefly Training!
