This post is simply to say thank you to all yoga teachers. It’s pretty normal for us yogis to have a “favorite” teacher or to judge a class. I am guilty for sure. And what I realized last week is how dare we?! We become yoga teachers because yoga has touched our lives so much we feel compelled to share it with others. To be a yoga teacher you have to stand up in front of a group of people and lead them both gently and powerfully into self-discovery. Yoga teachers have to balance delivering physical benefits with spiritual nuggets that help you connect the dots between your practice and your daily life. A yoga teacher puts themselves in a place of vulnerability every class so that we as students can have one hour of peace and release. A yoga teacher has to trust that what they have to give in that hour is good enough … every class. And when we first start teaching we have to step up onto the big stage with a racing heart, shaky voice and pockets full of self-doubt but we know with practice one day we will shine. At Glow my goal is to support our students and teachers to grow into the best version of themselves. We start with exactly where you are not where you think you should be. I hope our new teachers are inspiration to new students. If we as teachers are willing to step into the studio green, and spend time learning and practicing then we are authentic examples to lead. So if you’ve ever had a yoga class/teacher that you have judged as better or less than, remember that your teacher is a person that has dedicated themselves in service to you. At one moment during our advanced teacher training last week I became overwhelmed to be in the presence of people who care so much about teaching yoga they are willing to invest and put their lives on hold for a week to cultivate their craft. Some of us have practiced for years. Some of us have taught for years. Some of us just began the journey and all of us are in it together. That is why yoga is community. Tag your yoga teachers that have inspired you to walk with more peace in your life and to dare to step on to a big stage and try something new.
Charge up for the week ahead with an ahhmazing Restorative yoga class and soundbath tomorrow 4 pm with @swan_michelle in gulf shores
Myth #5 I’m too old to practice yoga. I don’t bend like that. We bend so we don’t break. Warren here practices yoga nearly every day. He along with a few other of our most inspirational yogis is 70 years young. Warren is a two-time ab challenge champion and teacher training graduate. He consistently shows up to his mat doing things with his body now he never imagined he could do 20 years ago. A Harvard graduate and retired JAG lawyer, Warren also continues to inspire us with his humility and willingness to grow mentally and spiritually. Yes you too can do yoga.
Freedom is being you ✌️❤️🇺🇸 Happy birthday America! #merica #freedom #freechoice #chooselove #freedomflow #yogaeverydamnday #yoga
Myth #4 I’m too busy/stressed/not hippie enough to do yoga. I can’t be that still. If you feel this way you are not alone. The majority of the people in a yoga class are coming to release and manage stress and emotion so you will be in good company. But do you really want to live like that any longer? You think this is just another day in your life. It’s not just another day. It’s the one day that is given to you today. It’s given to you. It’s a gift. It’s the only gift that you have right now. And the only appropriate response right now is gratefulness. Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast So how can yoga help? We say we are busy but we are usually more preoccupied with our thoughts and emotions than busy. There’s a big difference between being in a good, positive flow and just being overwhelmed and busy. Yoga keeps you in the positive flow and helps you become what we like to call at Glow “unmessable” with. With a steady practice, the small stuff no longer stresses you out and you start to realize it’s all small stuff. Just one yoga class can expose you to the power you possess to positively influence your own negative self-talk. You learn how to create boundaries that protect you from taking on draining negative energy from yourself and others. And you start to create space in your head and your schedule so you feel less overwhelmed, less busy. You can do what you are doing right now using just one billionth of your brain. Eat, sleep, work, reproduce and die. Or you can learn how to use your intelligence and start living your best life (served with a side of good buns). You can choose to stay in our society’s glorified state of “busy” or you can choose to glow with the flow. It’s a practice and we are all in it together.
