Do you ever wonder if you're "good enough" at yoga to be teaching? Do you ever wonder what it means to be good at yoga?
A couple weeks ago, someone asked me how good I was at yoga, and when I thought about it, I immediately thought of my asana practice. There are a lot of advanced asanas I can't do, so I must not be that good... right? And if I'm not that good, should I really be teaching?
After taking some time to consider what it means to be good at yoga, I decided to put out a solo episode sharing my thoughts. In this episode of the podcast, I discuss the grey area that is defining yoga, what it means to be good at yoga, and whether or not that is even a thing.
What do you think it means to be good at yoga? Send me your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
