THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE taught me to teach yoga

?

I don’t mean teacher trainers, though I learnt many things from experienced yogis.

?

I mean the thousands of people who showed up to classes with me.

?

Each with individual bodies and voices and needs.

?

For me, learning to teach has been – and still is – most profoundly informed by each one of those people who turn up to class.

?

The ways in which they find yoga healing, they ways in which they find yoga harmful.

?

The moves that work for them in yoga, the moves than don’t work for them in yoga.

?

That which they say, that which they don’t say.

?

Learning to teach the people who show up is about making an ongoing choice to listen and to learn, because every person is a little different in what they need in the yoga.

?

This is one of the subtle things I share in my Inspiratrix Yoga teacher training programme.

?

For a 200-hour programme is usually what gets most people started with teaching yoga.

?

And then the journey continues for the rest of your life!

?

I don’t believe there is a “destination”…. the journey is its own reward and there are many places to visit along the way.

?

The next chance to join the my yoga teacher training programme is in September.

?

I’m running taster evenings on 20th July and 10th August.

?

These give you a flavour of what it would be like.
