why did you choose teaching yoga as your pathway?
I was recently reminded by TaraMarie that I came up to her after that fateful first class and asked “how do I become a yoga teacher?” As time has gone on, I feel less that I chose this path and more that it chose me. Teaching is about so many things that I value greatly – sustained study and focus, clear communication, leadership. My reasons for staying on this path change daily, but the bottom line is that being a teacher resonates with and reinforces my deepest nature.
