If you are a Yoga instructor who is teaching a group of students in a school setting, there are a number of ways to incorporate teaching them core values, such as a strong sense of self-respect, along with traditional Yoga asanas, pranayama exercises and meditation techniques.
If you are a new Yoga instructor, teaching traditional pranayama practices to your students may seem intimidating at first. However, incorporating breathing exercises into a sequence of Yoga asanas will increase the benefit of the practice many times over.
Practicing the art of Yoga on a regular basis helps to eradicate a sense of individual separateness and lack. The comprehensive art of Yoga is not just limited to physical asanas, it also includes breathing techniques, which increase the circulation of prana or life force energy, in addition to meditation and contemplative practices that help to ease anxiety, depression and an abiding sense a separateness.
As a Yoga teacher, when we invite our students to enter deeply into the postures, we are also inviting them to allow memories and impressions to arise from within. These memories and impressions can span the entire duration of our lifetimes.
New practitioners should check with their medical providers and find classes with a teacher who has completed prenatal Yoga teacher training, if possible. Classes often turn into a support group where expectant moms can learn and share their concerns and knowledge.
As a Yoga instructor, cultivating a sense of gratitude in your Yoga classes is particularly appropriate during the holiday season. Gratitude is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as a sense of appreciation or thankfulness. To feel a sense of thankfulness also elicits a profound sense of being blessed as we walk through the world.
It is amazing how much time teachers spend on independent research and specialized yoga teacher training. However, we know that yoga instructors need educational resources and training to help the world become a better place.
Do you know why students come to your classes? Do you ever ask? You might think stress or weight loss and you might be right, but the truth is there are many different reasons. Some students want to belong and some want a sanctuary from anxiety, depressed feelings and the pressure of life. Yoga teacher training has equipped instructors with the tools to offer a haven where students can recover and restore emotional health.
