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 13 years, I’ve been mentoring, educating 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 show you that everything you need to be a crazy good teacher is already within you. Perhaps you don’t have all the tools yet. It’s my job to show you which tools you need and how to use them properly.
I believe that if you have the desire to be a yoga teacher my door should be open regardless of your flexibility, where you’ve been practicing yoga or how “beautiful your practice” is or isn’t.
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, bad Sanskrit (so I rarely use it) and size 8-10 Gap and Target yoga pants, I teach one hell of a class.
At Purple Lotus Yoga, you’ll gain the appropriate skills AND eliminate the self-doubts that keep you from being the GREATEST teacher you’re supposed to be.
