Teaching my first community class last week was such an eye-opening (literally) experience. While I have experience teaching group fitness classes, teaching yoga felt like a completely different ball game. A lot more attention to detail was required as every individual’s body can go into and hold a yoga pose so differently depending on body structure and limitations, level of strength and flexibility, degree of body awareness, etc. Sometimes it almost feels as though there are too many things to try and control while teaching a class, but I am learning how to be more composed, patient, and ultimately improve my skills as a teacher so as to give students a good experience when they come for class.
