As I approach the halfway point for this thirty day personal writing challenge, I have been asked many questions regarding this process. I wish to share these questions and answers with those of you who have been following my blog:
Q1 – Why is the process taking longer than thirty days?
A1 – I want to ensure that I complete the personal challenge by posting thirty qualities which equates to thirty days, although they are not sequential.
Q2 – What is your reason for writing about qualities of yoga teachers?
A2 – In posting qualities that I feel are important for good yoga teachers to possess, I wish to attain two goals; I hope to help students find a quality yoga instructor when they begin their yoga journey, and I also hope that I will help new students develop reasonable and accurate expectations when they take their first yoga class.
Q3 – Why don’t you write about qualities that should be avoided instead? Wouldn’t that be easier?
A3 – I like to approach most subjects from a positive point of view. In writing about negative aspects, I feel that I would be writing in a divisive manner which I do not want to do. Yoga is about unity, and I hope that I can unite good yoga teachers with good students through my writings.
Q4: Will you only be writing about qualities of yoga teachers for the full thirty days?
A4: Yes, but I’d like to preface that by saying that I also try to include other aspects of the yoga experience throughout the postings. When a new yoga student reads my entries, I hope that they will find help in navigating the “culture” and “language” of yoga because yoga is much different than the other exercise classes out there right now.
I am looking forward to writing the last half of the thirty day challenge in the coming weeks!
