Building trust on and off the mat is essential to yoga teachers looking to expand their business via yoga retreats and workshops. Yoga places a tremendous amount of importance to the teacher-to-student relationships. Trust is a key aspect of leading safe and educational classes.
New yoga teachers are often overwhelmed by the experience of leading an asana class. Because of newly learned information, new teachers can find themselves in a headspace of doubt and instability. These nervous butterflies are normal and healthy!
If you are a new yoga teacher, try to remind yourself, that you are in a position of responsibility to your students. They are coming to your class and putting themselves in a vulnerable position. The work that your students are doing on the mat is more important than anything else. You know your material, teach what you know.
