What every good yoga teacher should tell you

3 min read

Some yoga teachers will tell you deep, philosophical truths they read in a book or the latest mindfulness practice they heard in a podcast…but that is not what makes a good teacher.

A good teacher is simply someone who understands you and listens. They also know that you are unique. Great teachers know that it’s not about them but the students.

The teachers always check in with their students before class. They are creative and open to their students’ suggestions and opinions. They are present at all times, the first to arrive at the studio and the last to leave.

A good yoga teacher is aware that they are not perfect. They acknowledge their flaws, and they work to improve them both on and off of the mat. Here are some things that a good yoga teacher will tell you.

Finding your inner self is the essence of yoga.

Yoga is known for connecting you to your inner self. It is a tried-and-true way to discover your inner beauty despite any flaws. A good teacher can help people in the soul-searching stage find peace.

You will learn to be independent when you discover your inner self. To bring out your best, you must stay on your path. You can be successful on your own. The real teacher, however, is you.

Yoga is all about finding the balance between the good and bad things in your life.

Good teachers know that we all experience bad things, but it is up to us to find the positive in everything. There’s a place for both happiness and sadness.

They will make you see that you can grow and become your best self by embracing the pain. They will help you realize that darkness only lasts as long as you allow it to. It is important to believe in yourself.

Your yoga practice is yours.

Yoga is something you do because it’s what you enjoy, not to please your yoga teacher. You will not be asked to copy your teacher or their practice. They will tell you to be true to yourself, and they are there to guide you.

You can discover how amazing and beautiful you are by embracing your yoga journey. Teachers are there to help you grow and support your practice.

You don’t need to change your identity.

Good yoga teachers will help you to see that you do not have to change yourself to be happy or find peace. You don’t need to pretend to be anyone you are, not because the only way to happiness is by embracing who you really are. You will learn to connect your mind, body, and spirit.

Yoga studios are places where people can calm their minds and try to live in the present. Be yourself. Keep in mind that everyone is also on a similar journey.

You are unique.

Good yoga teachers will also make you realize how unique you really are. They will tell you that you are unique and that it is your life journey that makes you beautiful and different.

Good yoga teachers will share with you their love and devotion to the practice. Good yoga instructors will help you accept that everything happens for a purpose, both good and bad. We are all flawed in our own unique, beautiful, and perfect way.
