Well teaching your first yoga class is no different, it’s a challenge and can be pretty scary, but because we have such a passion for teaching and yoga we keep at it.

Yoga & Religion what we need to understand as teachers?

In this short recording I address one of the most common fears students with a religious background have around taking up yoga.

If you’re a teacher it’s a good episode to help you start thinking about how we teach and what we teach in group classes with very little understanding or sensitivity towards the cultural and religious diversity present in our yoga studios.

A brief discussion on chanting and how to teach this in a way that won’t scare new students off.

Thanks for listening see you on the mat soon Kxx
