Yogi Q&A: How To Become A Better Yoga Teacher Without Studio Opportunities
As part of Bizzy Yogi, I want to offer time to answer any questions my peers or fellow yogis have. It’s part of my serving.
So today’s question comes from Pat.
She asks, “How do we become better teachers if we don’t have opportunities?” One of her classes was recently let go from the studio, so Pat, this is for you.
First of all, that is something that happens to all of us. It’s happened to me a million times, where maybe your class was going okay, but for some strange reason, they decided to shift the teacher or change the time slot.
First thing is ask the studio what you could’ve done better, and maybe what was some of the feedback from the students?
Number two is open up your possibilities. You have a very niche practice. You have chair yoga, slow flow, and family yoga, so not everybody can teach that. Maybe reach out to YMCAs, to different centers, maybe community centers.
Where there’s older people that might need the chair yoga, or people that can’t do yoga on a yoga mat, maybe disabled, maybe vets. There’s always opportunities to offer your teachings, your practice, and you have to open up the possibilities of not just teaching at a studio.
I hope that answers your question, and for you who are watching, please ask away. Send questions. Join my Facebook group, Yogi Hearts, Business Minds, where I go on there live, and we’ll be able to create some of these answers once a week, live on the group.
We’ll be posting that very soon. Then you can ask literally right then on the spot.
I’m super excited to share this with you, so please leave comments, answer questions below, and I’ll see you in the next one.
