Last June I graduated from Kind Yoga School! (www.kindyoga.com)I began teaching at Gleason Family YMCA almost immediately. This past year has been more than I ever imagined. It has been a joy teaching and knowing my students. They have made my teaching so much fun. They have given me great feedback on how the yoga has improved their lives and how they are using it in their lives. It was wonderful when Jami announced she wanted to attend yoga instructor training and ended up at Kind Yoga School! This year has been a continuous year of learning about teaching and yoga. I constantly learn something new about teaching yoga, even if it's a better way to describe the way to do a pose. Student feedback, makes me continue to review my school work and to go further into learning about yoga. I hope I never feel so sure of myself as a teacher that I stop researching and learning about yoga.
The thing that stands out the most is hearing the stories from students about yoga in their lives. My heart glows when a student shares a story with me. The second thing is being able to teach yoga to students with a wide variety of abilities. It is so exciting to look out on a sea of beautiful faces practicing yoga in their own beautiful way.
Thank you to Diane and all the Kind Yoga teachers, my students, my husband who continues to support me, Lu (YMCA) who had faith in me to assign me classes even before graduation and mostly to God who has provided this opportunity and supports me as I teach.
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.
