Wonderful insight on being a good yoga teacher and/or a popular yoga teacher from my online blogger yogini friend, Nikki Wong.
It’s definitely thought provoking. I personally gave up the popularity contests some time around my junior year in high school (then re-learned that less yet again, my junior year in college!).
Personally, I never thought I would be, and never really wanted to be a celebriyogi. There’s a lot of judgement that comes with teaching yoga, let alone a celebriyogi. Judgement from your students, the industry, your peers. There’s no popularity contest on living your yoga, but there certainly can be on perfecting your asana. Oh the irony, right? That’s a soapbox I choose not to step upon right now. I’m just reblogging because (as usual) Nikki offered a very poignant post. Thanks for making us think, Nik! xoxo
oh and if you’re so inclined, you should totally vote for Nikki to teach at Wanderlust. https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=3024066489568&oid=82363965333&saved
