One of peoples’ major requests in the survey was that I share more about how I came to be a yoga teacher, and more about how I make a living at it. I’ve written before about how I became a yoga teacher and now I’m unemployable at anything else, so I HAVE to make it [...]

This guest post by my friend Jenifer Parker came out of the conversation we had after my bunfight. This, she tells me, is how she’d express her views on being a yoga teacher, and the lateness thing. And the ‘let’s respect tradition & unquestioningly respect the teacher’ thing. When speaking to “tradition” we [...]
I got into a…okay, it was a bunfight. I’d like to call it a discussion, but it was really a bunfight. With another teacher, in a private Facebook group for, you guessed it, yoga teachers. This was the comment that set me off (and OF COURSE I couldn’t keep quiet, could I?): Talking about yoga [...]

Most inspiring! Hope, safety, community, restorative yoga. And squats. It sounds about perfect to me, in general.
When I first arrived in Australia four years ago, I lost my voice for a little bit. It didn’t last all that long on account of how I can’t refrain from sharing my views with anyone who will listen. But the insecurity about the way I sounded that caused me to go around mostly silently, except [...]
This guest post is from the wonderful Michelle Myhre whose blog, Devi Wears Prana, is frikkin awesome. Her snapshot of life as a yoga teacher is spot on, at least to my experience. If you are in the San Francisco area and thinking of doing teacher training, you should investigate Michelle’s training program! Namaste! I [...]
