I am a lifelong yoga lover. When I was just 20 years old, I took my first yoga class for a PE credit in college. I knew from that first experience that I wanted to be a serious yoga practitioner, and for the past 28 years, I have studied with the best teachers.
I am fortunate to know from such a young age that I wanted to dedicate myself to the study of yoga.
TEACHING IS A GIFT
Having invested my time and money into studying with such experienced teachers, it is important to me pass on what I have learned to others, as my teachers have done for me.
Though I have had a dedicated practice with many teachers, the one I am most associated with is yoga master Erich Schiffmann, author of the best-selling book Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving into Stillness (the second best selling yoga book of all time). I assisted him at workshops and ran his discussion board. I hold a teacher training from him, as well as New Zealand's Donna Farhi, among others.
I have studied yoga for over 25 years in the Iyengar, Kripalu, Anusara, and Freedom Style yoga traditions. The traditions I have studied range from the athletic to the spiritual; I can teach students of all levels and interests, of all ages. I love to help people learn to use yoga to heal themselves.
TEACHING IS A GIFT THAT MUST BE PASSED ON
Like many yoga enthusiasts, for most of my teaching career I haven't made a real living at it. To be honest, it was more of an expensive hobby than a viable vocation. Lots of yoga teachers have this problem. Some of it is the tradition of yoga to be taught by renunciates, people who have given up all their worldly possessions, and some of it is lack of business skills.
Last year I earned a Masters of Engineering (MEng) with a focus in Engineering Management. In this program, I learned how to start up business that can sustain me, and I coach yoga teachers on this important aspect of teaching. It is possible to teach in a way that is ethical and spiritual and make a living doing what you love. It takes a lot of thought and effort to do.
But it's important, because when you have a viable business that sustains you, it means that you have a community around you that believes what you have to say is important.
It means that you are pushed to articulate your teaching clearly. It means you can pass on what you have learned to a new generation in Chattanooga .
