Some Yoga teacher training graduates may leave feeling a little bit depressed after witnessing gymnastic tricks at the intensives. Never fear - if you watch, assist, help, and show compassion to your students, you'll be a great Yoga teacher! Let's face it, some Yogis and Yoginis like to show off like they are competing at an audition for Cirque du Soleil.
Some interns and Yoga teacher trainers believe the heart and soul of Yoga is asana practice. This may be so in some fitness oriented Hatha Yoga styles, but it isn't the case for all of Yoga. Many Yoga styles are designed for the maintenance of your mind on a spiritual, mental, and emotional level.
