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.
Join me either face to face in Valley’s Tabor chapel hall, or online on Zoom. Book your spot here.
