As modern vinyasa yoga teachers there is pressure (both subliminal and overt) to make classes “hard.”
There’s no easy fix to this. Vinyasa yoga classes are movement-based. The sedentary nature of modern life means that people need to move their bodies — and they crave it.
So, how to give them what they need while still conveying the subtle aspects of yoga? Another way of saying this: How do you not become a rote group exercise instructor?
In this episode, we unpack this phenomenon and attempt to get to the heart of it, what we are responsible for as yoga educators, and what we can let go of. Jason also offers helpful ideas for classroom management.
