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 Flipchip! As recently highlighted in Yoga Journal, Yoga Flipchip 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 Flipchip is also offering a discount on orders to those who complete the Firefly Training!
