Instructor Health

Teaching yoga and remaining healthy is quite challenging especially when you teach many classes. All too often yoga teachers struggle with their energy levels and health.
Instructors can often get burned out and begin to lack motivation and enthusiasm.

When bodily aches and pains do not heal easily the body is overworked and under nourished.

Care must be taken with every little injury you get. Something that suddenly hurts can often become chronic if uncared for. Your body's health is essential for your income.

Teaching yoga classes is a huge responsibility in many levels. A lot of energy is used to guide, motivate and positively encourage practitioner while attending your class. This can be very draining on a mental and physical level.
