Why? Because the world needs more yoga teachers.
We are in a time when conscious and grounded leaders with a background in yoga, meditation, nutrition, pranayama and holistic wellbeing are needed more than ever.
All teachers, and especially yoga teachers, have a unique responsibility to cultivate community and holistic wellbeing in every day places – day-cares, schools, fitness centres, offices and in government.
Yoga brings people together while nurturing love, self-love, respect and harmony within the individual. The teacher is the facilitator of this growth and awakening.
This said, the responsibility to teach and serve in this humble and honest way requires great energy, which can easily be depleted if the yoga teacher does not take care of him or herself. The energy teachers offer to their students can only be restored through the teacher’s dedication to their own personal practice and on going professional development
Great leaders are teachers, and great teachers are great students.
The desire to teach and share yoga with others does not come from being an expert or master of the practice. Rather, it comes from our love of yoga and from our gratitude for the benefits we’ve experienced in our own lives.
The practice is the work we have done and the discipline we have developed before becoming teachers and what we continue to work on and develop along side our teaching.
