Episode 175: Before You Teach Your Next Class, Do This…

Last week, Jason shared what to do when you feel like you’ve taught the worst yoga class of your life. This week, he’s sharing a few tips for getting in the right headspace before you teach so that you’re more likely to show up for class feeling calm, present, and confident.

We cover:

* How to get grounded before you teach a yoga class — and why this is a big challenge for so many yoga teachers 

* Strategies for using the first few minutes of class to get yourself in the right mindset to teach 

* Why having a plan and a back-up plan (a go-to sequence that you know you teach well) can be a saving grace as a yoga teacher 

* Why it’s important to teach what you’re practicing at home
