Our energy is meant to shine on its own

OUR ENERGY IS MEANT TO SHINE ON ITS OWN

Often, when we think of energy, we ask ourselves, “How can I get more energy?” 

As teachers, energy is important. 

When our students are happy and fulfilled, that is what motivates us to teach with passion, to be inspired. 

Yes, sometimes our energy depends on our students. 

But here is a question, are we somehow expecting the same energy from our students to feel good about ourselves? 🤔

When students feel happy and cheerful after class, we beamed and feel pumped.

Whenever everyone looks kind of zombie-like on a hump day evening class, we judge ourselves and feel we haven’t done our best. 

Does this resonate with you? 😬

WE NEED TO LET GO OF THE NEED to expect the same energy from our students. 

There are days in class when the students come in with a different energy than we do.

Even in their yoga journey, no one has the same experience as you have, and no one is shaped exactly as you are. 

Yet it is very common for teachers (including myself) to lose their energy in trying to convince and educate students to see things from our perspective. 

It’s something we have to accept as educators. 

It feels good to be understood and validated. 🙂

But if we solely teach to feel validated, we will surely feel disappointed.

Even if we share similar ideas and values, and even if we are with the people who resonate with us, we can’t expect everyone else to relate to us exactly, because we are all different and unique. 

Instead of focusing on being seen as a teacher, think about how we can know our students better and appreciate who they are so THEY can be seen. 

Teaching authentically means knowing who we are as teachers and expressing ourselves in a way that does not depend on others’ approval.

When we can accept ourselves as we are, we can hold space for our students AS THEY ARE.

Your approval is all you need. 😊

Together we can support each other along the way with more understanding and appreciation. 

OUR ENERGY IS MEANT TO SHINE ON ITS OWN.

Let yourself shine.
