Creating rituals is such a wonderful way to delve into your personal practice, and rituals can be a wonderful tool for class planning as a teacher (watch the blog for tips on how to take a ritual to life in a yoga class). Ritual is the creation of the conditions to listen and engage with the felt sense as the voice of consciousness. it is a way for us to feel and personify the Divine, until the point when we recognize that we are the divine.

Every Yogi Has a Vision.

One of the things you may discover, as you begin your teaching journey, is that to be a yoga teacher means that you are also a small business owner, especially as a teacher in Australia. This means that you will learn how to do things like your own marketing, networking, collaborations, and taxes. All of these things can be really hard to navigate. Especially taxes. I hate taxes.

As a yoga teacher trainer, one of the things newer yoga teachers often ask me about is how to find the right words to teach for a theme. As a new teacher, it's sometimes hard enough to simply get left and right correct. Well, let's be honest, some days it's hard no matter how long you've been teaching.
