Yoga Teachers Lead By Example – Part 3-www.k8k8.com

Yoga Behavior toward neighboring Yoga schools, Yoga teachers, and their students, should be cordial. Like the old saying goes, If you do not have anything good to say, do not say anything at all. When we speak of other Yoga teachers, or former Yoga teachers, in a hostile manner, what do we teach our students? Unfortunately, Yoga teachers are human and behavior is not always optimum. Show respect toward neighboring ashrams by letting the director, master teacher, or guru, know about your events – in the form of a letter or invitation. Do not post your events on their doors, on their cars, and on telephone poles nearby their ashram. Do not encourage your Yoga students to tear down advertisements of other local ashrams in the markets and local coffee shops. Harmonious coexistence with local Yoga studios and ashrams is healthy. When Yoga students are encouraged to be.e sectarian, or elitist, they are being strayed away from the true meaning of Yoga. Always remember Yoga means unity. Avoid moving your Yoga studio next door, above, below, or across the street from another Yoga teacher. The world is a very big place. There is no need for us to behave like rivaling businesses. If that were acceptable, Yoga would be just a business, and our true mission is to help others. Try to maintain good relations with former Yoga teachers and their students. Sometimes, there are .plications in the student / teacher relationship, but try to be as friendly as possible. Relationships with your Yoga students should be balanced and kept intact. Yoga teachers should avoid using their position for leverage or special favors. If you are having feelings beyond the usual Yoga teacher / Yoga student relationship, you should seek qualified advice, do some soul searching, or withdraw yourself from the situation. The Yoga studio is not a romantic playground, or part of a dating service, for Yoga teachers. As a Yoga teacher, your relationship is founded upon the trust of your students. You also want to avoid fueling any distractions from Yoga practice. Lastly, you want to encourage your more advanced Yoga students to be.e independent creators of their own practice. It is nice to be needed, but your Yoga students will grow if they are allowed to be innovators. You can always show them the safest methods to keep them on the right track, but you do not want your advanced Yoga students to feel dependent on your existence. To draw a small .parison: A pair of adult eagles takes wonderful care of their chick, but someday, that chick will grow to be as large as its parents. The solution is to encourage their offspring to fly and be.e independent. You know, you will not be around forever, so encourage your Yoga students to keep the practice evolving.
