If you’ve been teaching online or if you’re considering getting started, you might have looked at the hundreds of professionally produced videos already available and asked yourself, “Who would want to watch ME over this?” The answer: the people who will connect with you for who you are: you, uniquely you.
One thing I miss when following along with slick videos is a sense of the teacher’s personality, and the sense of their journey through yoga apart from the physical poses. Alexandra DeSiato and I wrote Teaching Yoga Beyond the Poses to help you develop your own voice as you teach yoga philosophy and help students find connection and meaning. Check it out if you would like to add depth to your classes, either online or in person.
Thanks to our publisher, North Atlantic Books, over on Instagram we are each giving away two copies of the e-book, so you can win one to enjoy and one to share. If you’re a teacher, you can share with a colleague; if you simply practice, you can pass a copy to a teacher. Here’s how!
