Yoga, my daily routine, has taught me how to cope and to live. The therapy of yoga helps me focus and find inner strength. I have developed the ability to live day to day with a yoga studio in my home for my own practice as guide for self discipline.

Yes, the solitary time spent practicing asanas, meditation, shatkarmas, and research is rewarding, but it is also rewarding to share all of this with grateful Yoga students. Many Yoga teachers have one thing in common - We have the greatest "job" in the world.

Having the time to research makes us feel like we are students again. Teaching Yoga is a form of freedom.

Hi!

I agree with all of you. My only regret about teaching yoga is that I did not discover it earlier in life instead of spending years in a job I did not like! :) It is truly the one thing that keeps me balanced no matter what else is going on in my life.

Namaste,

Jeann

Hi Everyone,

You made a good point Jeann, but you must have gained inspiration from your past job to become a Yoga teacher. In life, we tend to look back at time wasted, but that time created your life as a Yoga teacher. Consider this, if we were somewhat satisfied with our previous jobs, most of us would never have become Yoga teachers.

The irony is sometimes it takes a negative situation to create a positive one.

Om Shanti,

Giving is the greatest reward, when you become a Yoga teacher. The appreciation from students who gain health benefits from Yoga practice gives us self worth. Live is too short to work at a job where you are not appreciated. To feel needed is a Yoga teachers reward.

Tomako,

You are so right as far as sometimes needing a negative experience to appreciate and cultivate the positive ones! :) My entire life focus is so different and it is such a gift to do what I love and see how it helps others on their path in life. I feel blessed on a daily basis in so many ways.

Namaste,

Jeann

Hi Jeanne'

You go girl. <img src=" title="Laughing" /> Yoga is a gift that every Yoga teacher shares with her students. Giving Yoga is a great reward, because it feels good to give. Paul's articles are full of this message. The fact that you give is a reward, but when a student thanks you this becomes a double reward.

Om Shanti,

Never have I seen a Yoga teacher unhappy about teaching Yoga to students. When you teach Yoga classes you join the happiest group of people in the world. Teaching Yoga class has a high satisfaction rate.

If you are taking life too serious, you should take time out to laugh.

You will need a fast connection like broad band to view this:

Hey Yogi,

Even with my Slowsky DSL, I was able to get a laugh and there was some pranayama value. In fact, I am going to ask Paul when he plans to get a laughing yoga teacher course together. <img src=" title="Laughing" /> I will open a laughing Yoga thread tonight.

:D
