The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
-William A. Ward
This morning I was motivated to take one of my Yoga teachers' Yin/Yang class. Class was amazing and at one point she reminded the class to pay close attention for those who have an injury. Up until that moment, I was modifying as I was going and at times, was all in my head.
Her paying close attention to the class and in particular knowing my management of the lower back was yet another moment of how teachers truly are *special. When she said that, he quickly glanced my way and I felt her support.
That moment was a reminder of how much support there is in the Yoga community. I've been fortunate to gain so much from those who have led my teacher trainings. The knowledge and their practices stem from other teachers, so on and so forth.
I hope to guide my future students, explain as much as I can, demonstrate if possible, but most importantly....I hope to inspire.
