CALLING ALL YOGA TEACHERS
This page is dedicated to the many thousands of souls out there who are either actively sharing their guidance skills as teachers of yoga or are feeling the calling to do so maybe one day very soon. If you’re already a teacher, thank you. If you’re thinking about becoming a teacher, don’t think, just do. The training cannot do anything but help you. It is an investment in your very core of being. I cannot say enough about the experience of a good a yoga teacher training. In fact, I’m due for a refresher myself and am looking forward eagerly to that with relish.
Is this page specific to teachers of hot yoga?
I maintain that the only difference between teaching hot yoga and traditional styles of non-heated yoga are some additional safety concerns hot yoga teachers need awareness of when practicing in a hot room. So, the teacher’s corner pages are applicable to all teacher, however everything on this page is dually applicable to teaching hot yoga. More about that later.
Who the heck am I to make recommendations to yoga teachers?
First and foremost, I am an avid practitioner and most of my viewpoints are from the standpoint of an experienced participant, struggling daily to make peace with myself on the mat, improve my body, and calm my spirit. I’ve tried to count the number of yoga teachers I’ve had the privilege to be lead by in my years of practice and I lose count at around 100.
Secondarily, I am trained yoga and fitness leader. My certifications include: American Council of Exercise (ACE) Group Fitness Instructor, British Columbia Parks and Recreation Association (BCRPA) Instructor in Group Fitness, Yoga Fitness, Pilates Fitness, Weight Training, and Yoga Alliance 200 hour RYT certificate. I have a full time non-fitness related job and teach classes regularly at my local community centre. All that means is that I know a little about my subject matter.
Finally, I come from a place of good intentions. I wish for all the yoga teachers reading my blog, whether you’re 20 years in the biz, or just dreaming about taking your first training to read my blog with an open mind. Best case scenario you get what you want out of it, worst case scenario you’re onto another website. If you have comments, I would love to hear each and every one of them. I am a teacher, a yogi, a writer, but most of all I am a learner. The day I stop learning is the day I stop living.
