Why I Teach

Mar 13, 2022

One reason why I teach is because it's 'a place for all to pause'.

I was driving the other day, and I have no idea why this came into my head, but it did. A thought came in as to why I teach. I may have been listening to Eckhart Tolle at the time. I get a ton of insights and revelations when I listen to him.

Thing is I never planned on being a yoga teacher. It just happened naturally. And although the reasons I became a teacher back then still have meaning today, they definitely have evolved as the years have gone by.

But that day I was driving, this one particular reason popped into my head in a way that hasn't been expressed within myself in these words until that day.

And those words are 'a place to pause'.

So there are many reasons why I roll my mat out daily, and one of those reasons is to teach so all have a chance to have a pause in their day.

I have no idea what’s going on in your life unless you tell me. You have no idea what’s going on in my life unless I tell you.

And sometimes life feels good and things are calm, and we feel this motivated zest for life. And at other times we may feel like there’s a storm cloud above us, following us around with a heavy energy.

So one reason I teach is because I know what it feels like to have that stormy, dark cloud above. And if I can bring just a bit of spaciousness for a little peace and calm to enter another, even for a few moments, by being fully present as I'm teaching, that’s all that counts and that's a good enough reason for me to continue stepping on my mat and continue teaching.

Whether I’m guiding you through some strength moves, a sequence to move towards a peek pose, a sound healing savasana, some simple breath work or just BEing in some silence and stillness, one main reason behind the teaching is, for the pause.......

........and for all of us to get in touch with our True Nature and feel less stress even while we have the storm cloud above.
