How Not To Teach Yoga: Lessons on Boundaries, Accountability, and Vulnerability – Learnt the Hard Way
(as of Mar 24,2021 07:09:04 UTC – Details)
It’s a common misstep for yoga teachers: we get so focused on learning everything there is to know about yoga that we overlook the importance of learning how to skillfully teach these things to people. Despite our best of intentions and, usually without realizing it, we fall into common traps like manipulation, elitism, imposter syndrome, and bewilderment when it comes to applying any sort of personal and professional boundaries to what we do.
This is a book about how we all mess up and how we can all do better. No Shame. No right or wrong answers. No arbitrary life advice. Through a mix of personal stories, guided reflections, and best practices taken from her experience as a social worker, Tori offers up an easy-to-follow guide for any teacher wanting to show up more reliably for themselves and those whom they teach.
“This “real talk” approach to teaching yoga doesn’t just list ways “how not to teach yoga,” but truly empowers instructors to think of and implement better ways of teaching – starting with themselves. I’m looking forward to using this awesome book as a reference and resource in my upcoming 200-hour YTT.” -Katie Dorje Blakey
