TIME FLIES – I wish I was witty enough to start off this blog post in a less cliched manner. But, seriously, WOW! It has been about two and a half years since I started teaching yoga!
In this short amount of time, I have quickly found myself growing and discovering what speaks to me. In my earlier days as a newly minted yoga teacher, I vividly remember the nervousness, the strong desire to please, and the insecurities I felt. Some of those thoughts and doubts still remain, but I have slowly begun to replace some of my earlier teaching habits with a strong desire to learn, and more self-assurance.
I wanted to pause and reflect on how I have changed and would like to share that with you.
1. More awareness on how poses are / should be sequenced
2. Less emphasis on music playlists
3. More emphasis on meditation in each class
4. Becoming more comfortable and knowledgeable on adjustments
5. Focusing on finding a mental purpose for the physical practice
It has been an interesting, but fulfilling adventure thus far, filled with humbling, gratifying, and real moments of advancement in my teaching. The longer I teach, the more I realize I have yet to learn, but am truly happy to keep going.
I apologize that I’ve been away for so long without a post, but life was completely overwhelming me. But, I’m back!
Thanks so much for reading and following my yoga teaching journey 🙂
