Teaching with integrity…

Whether you’re a student or teacher, I urge you all to read the article below. And do please take the time to watch the video too as it’s such an invaluable lesson.

For me the biggest gift of yoga is, and always has been, the lessons it can teach you about your own body and mind; how it can help you understand how they work and how to get the best from them. I try my hardest to always practice and teach with integrity; to embrace individualism and alignment and encourage exploration into self adjustment, but in a time where social media seems to increasingly demand ‘show’ poses, almost as if they’re the evidence of whether or not you’re a good teacher, it can make you feel tempted, or even pressurised, to stray, often innocently, from the true purpose of asana and indeed the bigger yoga picture.

This comes to me at a really appropriate moment, and inspires me stay true to my aims, and responsibilities, as both a student and teacher of yoga.

Namaste,
Cx
