So you’re certified as a yoga or group fitness “teacher.”
You’ve got your paper.
AND you’ve got your fears and self-judgments:

“How in the world am I supposed to be accountable to a group of people when I can’t even handle my own $hit?”
Well, that’s a good inquiry and if you’re having a challenging time functioning in / with life, get yourself help and support:
Find a great therapist…
Get a qualified life coach…
Visit with your healthcare providers…
Let go of what weighs you down…
Surround yourself with healthy, uplifting people
(a few suggestions … do all that even if you feel good, great, healthy)
Now, assuming you’re the “run of the mill,” vata deranged, member of modern society, stop whining, get out there and share your wisdom!
Remember, we didn’t come to Mama Earth to be perfect, we came here to experience – Life.
And, all of Life is subject to change because life is form and all form changes.
(remember your yogic philosophy?)
Now, as you accept the fluidity of life and the nature of change (to include the joys, the losses, the confusions, the clarity, the trauma and the drama) in your life, you realize the wisdom you have acquired along the journey. You might even start to anticipate the future merit of your conscious presence.
You become Enlightened because breath by breath, you release the density of fear and judgement.
- Celebrate your journey (including that of growing into a rocking, positively influential teacher)
- Know that your students are your teachers – they’ll let you know what’s working and what’s not
- Be a humble servant – if you have received the call to teach, you have received the call to serve
- Remember, teaching what you want to learn is the fastest pathway to mastery
- Accept your journey and discover your pearls of wisdom – share them with the world!
