Starting Out As A New Yoga Teacher...Finding Your Voice

Starting Out As A New Yoga Teacher...Finding Your Voice

Starting anything new is a challenge…remember what it was like to take your first yoga class? but the rewards and feeling of satisfaction after completing it spurs you onto the next class and the next.

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


Dealing with craving and desire

In this episode of the podcast we look at sutra 1.15. Taking a brief look at this sutra in relation to craving and desire.

Sometimes no matter how much logical information we know we still find ourselves giving into craving and desire, whether it’s being tied into toxic eating habits or relationships or substances.

For all the intelligence and understanding this desire we all carry can really get the better of us.

Join me for a short chat on this topic and yoga.

I’ll see you on the mat real soon. Kxx

Stress and it's impact on your health!

Stress and it's impact on your health!

We’re all stressed! We all experience moments in life when stress levels become increased and it’s difficult to manage and feel at ease in our skin.

However for the most part these periods should be mild and short lived.

When we experience stress for prolonged periods of time and or significant traumas we’re going to see the repercussions in our health and well-being.

How Your Past Affects Your Present According To Yoga

How Your Past Affects Your Present According To Yoga

In this recording we look at sutra 1.11 in this sutra we’re presented with the final of the 5 vrtti, smriti- memory presented by Patanjali.

Memory has the power to be positive or negative but regardless it has significant power and potential over our experiences.

In this recording we look at how memory is created, and how it dictates how we see and experience our every day lives.
