Charisma is the common denominator among the greatest teachers of all time. Yet, since it is unseen - it is also underrated. A charismatic teacher will establish an ethical rapport with Yoga students as a by-product of his or her personality.

By Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500 Recently, I spoke to our newest Yoga teacher intern about our Camp-in-a-Box Yoga teacher training correspondence course. He lives in Argentina, and I thought this interview would be good to share with our visitors, members, interns, and alumni. Q: Will the Yoga teacher training package you provide be enough to [...]
By Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500 There is a philosophy, which claims: If you give something away, and people find a value in it - they will react positively to your kindness, with repeat business. This is all well, and good, but the major fast food chains seem to be the only businesses to profit from [...]
