5 tips to refine your yoga teaching

๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด

Recently @victorchauyoga and I are getting together on IG to chat about yoga and teaching. ๐Ÿ™‚

In this session, weโ€™ll discuss ๐—™๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ช๐—ฎ๐˜†๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐—ด๐—ฎ ๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด.

I have been seeing a lot of new yoga teachers who have graduated from YTT and want to teach, but have not had the chance to โ€œhone in their craftโ€™.

If you are a new yoga teacher, here might be some of your questions:

โ€œ๐˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜บ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ?โ€

โ€œ๐˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ?โ€

Hereโ€™s what you need to know, similar to yoga:

๐Ÿ‘‰ To get better at yoga, you need to practice the asanas.

๐Ÿ‘‰To get better at teaching, you need ๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—–๐—ง๐—œ๐—–๐—˜ teaching!

Experience is your best training.

There are 2 parts to this โ€œ๐˜™๐˜ฆ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จโ€ series.

1๏ธโƒฃ Intention and Attitude

2๏ธโƒฃ Language and Cueing

At times, navigating the new teacher space can feel pretty helpless. Donโ€™t rush. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

It takes experience and time.

Seek support and help from mentors and teachers.

Remember, yoga is a lifelong journey both for you and your students.

As long as you focus on the LEARNING, both as a practitioner and a teacher, you are a good teacher, and you will get better at it. ๐Ÿ™Œ
