Just a side issue for newly certified yoga teachers: You're going to be nervous and you might make some mistakes. So What? We all did, but we learned and we improved as time went by. Each time you teach a yoga class is a new experience. And you can write notes down after class to improve your method.

What not to do - Act like an eager to please yoga puppy and beg your students for criticism. The reason: One student will hack you to shreds and try to break you in two. Sounds cynical right? Seriously, I know a new teacher who would beg for feedback and one of her students gave her enough criticism to last a life time.

She almost quit teaching yoga all together until she saw reality. Some people hate smiling and laughing. And some people want to find a weakness to crush you with. They love tormenting saintly people who want to please everybody. If this were not so Jesus would have lived to a ripe old age.
