Become a teacher

Is this for me? See if these statements apply to you:

  • I practice yoga for the sheer joy of it, and as a tool to help me lead a better life.
  • I believe everyone, not just people who believe in Hinduism, can benefit from yoga.
  • Yoga students should be empowered to make their own decisions about their bodies and their minds.
  • I am a rabble-rousing organizer who gets stuff done.
  • Yoga can be practiced anywhere, not just in a yellow-walled studio with a statue of Ganesha.
  • When newcomers enter my class, my goal is to welcome them rather than impress them.
  • I enjoy studying philosophy and interpreting it for myself. I enjoy exploring the unchartered territory of new ideas.
  • I reject hierarchical systems that pretend someone is better than someone else.
  • Making flyers and social media campaigns to promote myself sounds like a lot of fun.
  • I enjoy live music and would love to work with musicians.
  • My musical tastes have been described as edgy, ecletic, or downright weird.
  • My personal yoga practice usually involves music.
  • Bright lights and large mirrors just don't do it for me.
