Why do I teach yoga?
Why indeed do we teach yoga? I wanted to share what inspires me to teach. Also I wanted to find out from the other teachers their reason for teaching.
I teach yoga because I love sharing with my students the transformation yoga can bring to your life.
When I started yoga many years ago, I saw my teachers as individuals that had reached a good understanding of themselves, therefore, understanding of others. They seemed to be so put together, so happy, so spiritual and so at peace. As time passed, I became more aware of myself, more relaxed, more flexible.
All my teachers have been incredible; I loved all of them. Each class was like poetry to my senses. As I left each class, I noticed how happy and at peace I felt. I was practicing five days a week and loved every minute of it. The studio became like a second home, where I found kindness, acceptance and great new friends. I can really say that I was seduced by yoga.
The next logical step for me was to become a teacher. Before I knew it, I was flying to India and taking the 200 hour teacher training. During those six weeks, I found peace, happiness, and understanding of self and spiritual growth. I understood that unless I found inner peace and joy for me, I could not share it with others. I love teaching people everything that I learned – I share my transformation with them.
I teach yoga because it is a gift to be able to share the experience of God with others. Being a teacher means having the responsibility of channeling and sharing the ancient wisdom of yoga. In order for me to be a clear vessel of this love, I need to continue being a student. There is no superiority or inferiority in yoga and that’s what I appreciate most. We are all here learning from each other.
Giving love is one of the most beautiful parts of being a yoga teacher. Deliver that energetic part and feel the acceptance, happiness and growth in each of the classes, look at each of the students after class and realize that I can be a positive contribution in each of their lives that is my greatest motivation, is my reason for teaching. «I offer the transformation within me and I receive the acceptance within them.» Thank you for teaching me how to teach.
I teach yoga because I want to help people and make the world a more opened minded place – where we can accept people for who they truly are. Yoga has changed my life completely; I used to be in a dark place in my life until I found yoga and when yoga found me. Ever since then, I’ve wanted to teach and better myself in a positive manner by sharing my experiences and knowledge with others.
