A little clip of The Yoga Studio.

A big thanks to Alex Lavigne who made us a little video to give people a taste of Squamish and the little yellow room.

Check it out by clicking here.

I am enjoying Boulder, sunshine, stillness and learning from Richard and Mary.

Many ideas but for now, i am letting things simmer and observing the residue between the thoughts.

shanti.

can yoga teacher training course make new students

realize the value of long-term training? Is it just luck, or where you are located, that draws

appreciative Yoga students? Is there a method for teaching Yoga to new students, without scaring

them off? Let’s look at many solutions to keep the interest of your established Yoga students and

those new Yoga students, who just walked in the door.just When a new student arrives to learn

Yoga, they, may not have any previous Yoga experience. When teaching Yoga to new students, it is

wise to see it from their viewpoint. Everything is new, including your staff, your system, and

your method of teaching Yoga. It is up to the Yoga teacher to make of all these components “user

friendly.”
Remember that these guidelines also apply to your existing Yoga students too. Never take them for

granted and your Yoga students will stay with you “through thick and thin.” Always show

appreciation to your existing Yoga students.
If somebody feeling ill, or are in pain, you may have to let a substitute Yoga teacher, teach

your Yoga class, in your place. All of us want to teach our own Yoga classes, but the quality of

your teaching should always be the best it can possibly be.
Some Yoga teachers become adversarial about fees for every little thing. If you teach Yoga for a

living, charge a fee that you can live with. Do not “short change” yourself, but avoid the

perception of a “money hungry” salesperson. Do not hire pushy sales people either. Your Yoga

teaching service depends on a professional image that is seamless, compassionate, truthful, and a

pleasure to work with.
