The stereotype seems to be a yoga teacher to be a size 2-4, modern-day contortionist who belongs on a glossy magazine cover.
Her classes tend to be sweat-fests, and she shows off poses that intimidate the s**t of you.
And everybody in class looks just like her.
Now imagine the yoga teacher who…
Cares more about making a difference in the lives of others, and embraces the spiritual side of yoga.
She guides you to connect with your body and be grateful for what it can do, and doesn’t care about your body shape or hers.
At Purple Lotus Yoga I cater to the second kind of teacher, and if that’s you, grab an iced tea and stick around.
The non-traditional revolution started here
If you’ve taken yoga in any north Texas yoga studio, chances are good you’ve taken from a Purple Lotus trained teacher.
I have the oldest Yoga Alliance approved program in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex.
I have more than 10,000 hours of teaching yoga, and for 15 years, I’ve been mentoring and certifying teachers.
Many of whom have gone on to start their own studios, teacher training programs, and other yoga related businesses.
You can be a non-traditional teacher too
While knowledge of the postures is the first step in becoming a skilled instructor, it’s not the only one.
(And just because someone else CAN do all the cirque-like poses doesn’t mean they’d be a good teacher.)
My number one goal is to support you and provide the tools you need to be a great yoga teacher.
It’s not about the yoga voice, Sanskrit-fluency or even wearing size 2 fancy pants….
It’s about how the participants feel during and after class.
With my Texas accent, butchered Sanskrit, and size 8-10 off-brand yoga pants, I teach one hell of a class.
If you have the desire to become a yoga teacher, my door is open!
