Day 4 – Qualities of a Yoga Teacher – Thirty Day Personal Challenge

“I am disillusioned enough to know that no man’s opinion on any subject is worth a damn unless backed up with enough genuine information to make him really know what he’s talking about.”

~HP Lovecraft

Quality #5:  Genuine

Yoga teachers do much more than lead a class.  Yoga teachers actually teach and interact with every student in their classes.  Yoga teachers must genuinely care about their students.  They must also be genuine in their pursuit of yoga themselves.

The path of yoga is about learning to listen to the body and to work as a team with it. Yoga teachers must genuinely follow their hearts in seeking out the best training and teaching methods to give to their students.  Their efforts must be genuine; their lives must be genuine; their intentions must be genuine.

An open, genuine and heart-led yoga class will help to take students to a deeper experience within their own bodies.

Have you ever experienced a genuine teacher before?  What made them genuine to you?

Jeff, my local power yoga teacher is about as genuine and passionate as I have yet to find, next to you of course! His ability to capture the energy in the studio, harness the spirit of the entire class is amazing.
