A yoga teacher can have tremendous impact on how you view yoga, what kind of a yoga teacher or student you'll become & more deeply a good teacher will impact all aspects of your life. On the show today, I chat with Kaya Mindlin to talk about why yoga teacher-student matters in modern yoga.
For centuries, yoga was passed on through the Guru-Shishya Parampara. The teacher has been an irreplaceable aspect of our journey. Yet in modern yoga, we're adopting a very do-it-yourself approach. This is leading to a lot of harm knowingly or unknowingly.
Kaya packs so much wisdom into today's episode. She elaborates on how we can easily get confused between dharma and our careers. How to differentiate these two & strike a balance. Kaya talks about what it means to be a good teacher. Our dharma as teachers & students. Why how we train matters & how yoga teachers can better support themselves. This is an episode you don't want to miss even if you're not a yoga teacher yet.
