Are You a Yoga Teacher with a Vision?


Do you teach yoga in a way that brings yoga practice back to its essence? Of course, there are different ways to approach this. However, it is important to have an expanded awareness of specific and crucial facts first.

Teachers have to realize that Western Hatha yoga is still evolving and in transition. Teachers must also realize that the way poses are taught still needs to evolve to avoid fostering pain and injury, and I am not talking about micro-managing body parts further.

Teachers and committed practitioners must be aware that it is possible to unknowingly overdo when stretching and strengthening, hence yoga injuries happening even when yogis thought they were being careful.

And they must remain open-minded and curious about new ways of thinking about movement. Otherwise, they are just promoting old ways of practicing that no longer serve us even when we already get some benefits from our practice.

Iyengar is known for his sense of pose perfection. However, he himself said referring to Hatha yoga or posture yoga:

“Science evolves, Art evolves, and Yoga must evolve too”.

And for this to happen, we need to learn how to practice any kind of yoga the WISE WAY!

We need to understand that the Hard Way and the Gentle Way still need to integrate more wisdom to be practiced safely. Pushing too hard is not the only way a yogi can get hurt. Focusing on the perfection of a pose, even in a gentle yoga class can also be damaging even if the damage happens more progressively. Why? Because students disconnect from their whole-body intelligence to fit their idea of a pose when the pose is meant to be practiced to serve them.

I am sharing this because…..

I am offering “The Wise Way to Yoga Online Course” to Yoga Teachers and Committed Yoga Practitioners who want to be a part of this evolution. 

As a faculty member in a Teacher Training Course, I have helped countless trainees, teachers and committed practitioners approach yoga from a unique perspective that promoted their best performance with optimal safety, regardless of yoga style, body type or fitness level.

Wise Yoga teachers appreciate learning this unexplored approach to activating one’s whole-body intelligence. They love that they can use it on and off the mat for improved posture and increased efficiency of movement.

This course can help you revitalize and enhance your personal and teaching yoga practice. It builds confidence not related to appearances but stemming from the inside out. It guides you and your students to the best expression of any pose in a way appropriate to each yogi.

As a result, yogis of any level can enjoy their best yoga practice ever without any reason to worry about strain, pain or injury down the line.

And, with the wise way to yoga, teachers do not need to feel they have to keep cramming more knowledge into their brain to help their students or to avoid burnout.

Activating your whole-body intelligence is SIMPLE and EFFICIENT. It allows you to feel the lightness of being ON DEMAND even as you are engaged in a challenging pose! It goes deeper than listening to your body sensations as your main guide!

If this is you or someone you know who might be the right fit, please share this blog with them and connect us.

We’ll set up a time to connect over the phone and explore to see if working together is a mutual fit. I’m committed to making sure we both feel 100% aligned and excited about moving forward.

Your wins will be my wins and your NEW GAINED CLARITY will fuel your making the world a better place as you promote the evolution of Hatha yoga in a constructive way.

Again, I’m only looking for teachers who are ready to take action for their own benefits as well as the benefit of all.

I’m all about making a positive impact and working with yoga teachers and committed yoga practitioners who are doing good in the world.

I am looking forward to talking soon,
