The Art of Compassionate Facilitation
by Melody Moore, Ph.D., RYT
As yoga teachers and yoga service providers, we are privileged to have the opportunity to facilitate transformational experiences for those we serve and are served by. With every privilege comes responsibility, and as facilitators, we have a responsibility to our students to ahimsa: to cause no harm. This paper is primarily addressed to yoga teachers interested in developing the skills needed to facilitate group discussion and transformational process in workshop formats that ask for student participation or emotional expression.
