What do you hope to teach your students when you teach yoga? Is it to make shapes with their bodies? How about your teacher trainees — is it to memorize and repeat your sequences and study only with you? This week, Jason shares the foundational values that inform his educational style, namely helping students become clear, critical, and independent thinkers that value context and understand different perspectives.
