Why every Yoga Teacher needs Therapy...

‘When I first met Paul, his anxiety was so intense, he was unable to visit the grocery store without descending into panic.  His chest was concave, representing the intense vulnerability he felt in his heart space. Through a combination of gentle heart openers, calming pranayama and mantra, Paul has literally opened to life.  Yoga Therapy hasn’t ‘fixed’ his anxiety, but what it has done, is given him the tools to take control of his symptoms.  And now whenever he has a panic attack, he doesn’t need me (or anyone else) – he can access the solution from within using Yogic tools’ Can you think of anything more empowering that that? So, how can you overcome your fears and prepare yourself so that you’re able to meet all of your students from a place of empathy – and offer a Yoga practice that is not only appropriate but therapeutic and spiritually nurturing?
