Yogi Darren Main  asks yoga teachers to reflect on the ethics of being a yoga teacher . Main views ethics as a foundational necessity for any yoga teacher so that they can create a safe space for students to flourish and grow. He believes teachers must root themselves in the Yamas and the Niyamas  in order to be a good example for students both on and off the mat.
