Making Great Teachers
One of the first days in class, Craig said to our group, “You are going to be amazed at what great yoga teachers you will be when you leave here.” This comment while met with a bit of speculation from the group, I have to say, he was absolutely correct.
It is now July, only four months later and I am teaching more classes than I have time for. I am teaching at five different locations, two studios, two non-profits, and a mixed martial arts gym. In spite of the fact that I still go into each class hoping that I will not let anyone down, I find that I truly have become a great yoga teacher. People are amazed to learn that I am so new to the profession and I hear compliments on my teaching style all the time. Yandara truly has taught me to be a great teacher. I have found my place in life, what I was meant to do, and I am so very grateful.
With sincerity and gratitude,

HOW DOES ONE BECOME A GREAT YOGA TEACHER?
For many of us, the reason for pursing becoming a yoga teacher, is an experience of taking a class with a truly inspiring teacher. What is it that makes that yoga teacher different from all the rest?
That universal quality is presence. When we are truly present, we radiate our gift. Perhaps what your favorite yoga teacher radiates is wisdom, or perhaps it is strength, peace, joy or pure love. It doesn’t matter how we qualify this radiance. It simply permeates our experience on the mat and leaves us feeling wiser, stronger, more peaceful, more joyful, more loved. Often, we may feel that we don’t know how to find our gift, or how to share it with others. But, at Yandara, we believe that you already have the knowledge and intuition to do just that. One of the pillars of the Yandara Yoga Teacher Training, is to guide you to unveil your true gift as a teacher.
Yandara’s system and workshops will offer simple, yet profound, steps to realize that you are an amazing yoga practitioner, and a great yoga teacher! Yandara Yoga Institute states the meaning of a truly inspiring, heartfelt, and intuitive teacher training that will take you deeper into yourself, as well as further into the world.
