Yoga Inspiration

Mar 2, 2023

Life is a series of lessons and so we are met with countless teachers holding the mirror up or shining the light on something new. But what makes a teacher qualified? What makes us dedicated to one source?

Walking through life, nature, friends, or even music can be our teachers. But when we dedicate ourselves to the spiritual path, gurus help us put one foot in front of the other. Whether that’s along the path or on the mat, it’s all the same. But their job is not just to keep our bodies healthy with teaching through asana, they keep us spiritually healthy, psychologically healthy, and emotionally healthy too. 

This makes the job of the guru so much more than your average university teacher. Gurus teach us students what it means to be alive, what it means to be human, and what we need to hang on to or let go of to grow as spiritual beings. 

In this conversation, we explore what makes someone qualified to take on this role, and how we must resist the urge to chop and change our teacher. We also cover audience questions such as becoming a teacher ourselves and whether to hold a career alongside teaching yoga.
