I teach so I can learn. I teach so I have people to do yoga with. I teach because yoga has been the biggest source of healing in my life, and I know others need to heal, too.
A word about one of my teachers....
A man named BKS Iyengar died two months before I started yoga teacher training. At the time I started my training, I was still fairly new to the yoga community and had no idea who he was (much less how to pronounce his name...)
Little did I know how much I would learn from him. My instructor used his book "Light On Yoga" to teach from. As an almost complete newbie, his straightforward descriptions, pictures and rating system made SENSE to me. To this day, I still refer to it when I need to clarify something. I often paraphrase Iyengar's advice on Savasana by telling my students that it is considered to be the hardest and the easiest pose all at once, and for the same reason. You have to lay there motionless, quieting your mind.
Practice makes perfect, even if it takes a lifetime :)

PS....I write these posts mostly for myself. A journal to remember how I stopped hurting the world with my anger and started helping the world with my love. I am not a writer, so forgive the errors and run-on sentences. <3 <3 <3
