What makes a good yoga teacher?

Amy Ippoliti, co-founder of 90 Monkeys, an online school and resource school for teachers, is coming to the Sunshine Coast in October to lead her annual 200 hour teacher training.  She will be joined by guest faculty, Claudine & Honza Lafond and Deb & Russ Young.  Amy’s month-long intensive will explore Yoga Lifestyle, Yoga Practice, Personal Growth, Anatomy, Kinesiology, Empowering Yoga Philosophy, Pranayama & Meditation.  She will also guide you through Teaching Methodology, The Art & Business of Yoga and so much more…The training culminates with a two-day pass to Wanderlust Sunshine Coast!

Amy believes that before you begin exploring YTT opportunities you need to ask yourself two very important questions:

  1. Am I ready to learn to teach yoga?
  2. Will I be a natural at teaching well?

Tough questions. To help you answer them, Amy compiled the following list of qualities she believes are key to teaching yoga well.

Do you possess these qualities?

You need to be really honest with yourself and ask whether these are qualities you possess. Once you are finished, go back to carefully consider the questions above.

Do you____

  1. Identify as a student of yoga in all areas of your life—not just on the mat?
  2. Embrace an attitude of being continually open to learning and being able to admit when you don’t know something?
  3. Possess a fundamental understanding of your own energy and a sensitivity to other people’s boundaries?
  4. Have a daily practice?
  5. Work to cultivate a vibrant body, sharp mind, and soft heart?
  6. Consider yourself psychologically minded with a certain level of emotional stability?
  7. Have a spiritual practice, even if that’s simply an appreciation of nature, art, or anything beautiful?
  8. Not worry about being too physically adept at the practice?
