New Yoga Teacher to New Yoga Teacher – How We Teach

Something that has been on my mind lately is how to help out new yoga teachers as they start out. I’ve barely begun this career myself, and I’ve learned much and documented what I’ve been through. It dawned on me that there aren’t a whole lot of resources out there for new yoga teachers. Or if there are, I don’t know about them.

The two books that I know of on the Art of Teaching and the Business of Teaching Yoga are The Business of Teaching Yoga by Larry Payne and Teaching Yoga: Exploring the Teacher-Student Relationship by Donna Farhi. Neither of these are specifically for brand spankin’ new yoga teachers. So, I’ve taken it upon myself to start this conversation, in the hope that my experience will be of some use to new teachers starting out out there.

In this video I talk about teaching from your experience and practice vs. reciting from a script and repeating what you’ve heard or seen.
