Its been 3 years since graduated from Kind Yoga and began teaching yoga. I have been teaching at the Gleason Family YMCA. I have enjoyed teaching Chair as well as Floor yoga. Even after some 100 hours of teaching, I still find myself checking to make sure I am teaching effectively, tweeking my teaching here and there. There are always places to grow, just like in our yoga practice. Where do I go from here? I will start teaching with the Marion Council on Aging starting in August. I have also begun teaching at Yoga Light Studio in Wareham. I also hope to start some classes of Yoga with Grace.
I have been finding myself wanting to get more training. I would like to learn how to help my students with their special needs. Learn how yoga can benefit these special needs and how I can best adapt yoga and help my students. I am also looking to delve more deeply into yoga, not just the asanas, but other parts like the Chakras. I would also like to get more into meditation and its practices and some Yoga Nidra.
I am looking forward to the upcoming year of teaching. Mostly I am looking forward to be with my students. They make my day!
The following YouTube video is an interview between Diane Kovanda director of Kind Yoga and Dr. Patricia Fater about the benefits of yoga to our whole body. It is just over 11 minutes long. Dr. Fater gives us a lot of useful information. Many of the benefits Dr. Fater shares, my students have experienced/expressed.
I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
