Hi Ali, I am a yoga teacher in Louisville, KY. I am a student at HEAT, a hot yoga studio where I teach Warm Yoga. My favorite part of your blog is the amazing graphics and pics. Thanks for presenting the scientific side of yoga.
I’ve enjoyed your guides for being a teacher, such as “How to approach teaching at a new studio” and “How to discover your yoga teaching niche”.
I’m a yoga teacher as of last June, and am still expanding my classes into different spaces and appreciate the advice and tips!
I teach Kundalini yoga (and some hatha and restorative) in Los Angeles. I’m a huge fan and I kind of love all your posts. But the ones about how to manage life as a teacher and my view of myself as a practitioner deeply resonate for me. It’s always good to know I’m not the only one thinking about/confused by/struggling with such things. And, OF COURSE, the infographics are amazing.
1) I’ve been a Yoga teacher for 6 years now, mainly Hatha, but I throw in a bit of Raja-speak now and then. Teaching is my avocation, and I mainly lead at fitness clubs because I don’t have the business/PR skills you note in your 6-skill article.
2) I don’t read blogs very often. What I appreciate is your active online offerings, such as the studio list on your main page and the recent “silly” poster both of which I think represents great effort and generosity on your part.
I’m a yoga teacher in Sydney, Australia. At the moment I teach a few beginners’ courses, some corporate yoga, some general yoga at a studio, and some yin yoga.
I read lots of blogs (not all yoga ones, of course), but I’m always a bit excited when yours pops up in my reader feed. I really appreciate your openness, that you have fun here, but that you also offer some really helpful insights and advice (for teachers and students). And it probably goes without saying that I absolutely adore your infographics. Trying to work out if I can fit the Brief History poster on my walls somewhere…
HI Ali….Im a student, a new one at that, I have found this new love for yoga, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me. The great feeling it brings is just amazing. Reading your blog certainly has been great insight as I move forward on my journey!!
Hi Raelynn! You win!!! Please email me with your address firstname.lastname@example.org
Ali, you already know who I am and as such I expect to be excluded from the drawing, but I wanted to put out here (especially for the folks from far away places who only get to experience you through this blog) that what I really love about it is its authenticity. You really are the amazing graphic artist, avid reader, goofball, creative talent, thoughtful person and (oh yeah) really-great-yoga-teacher-who-knows-a-lot-about-yoga-(good-and-bad)-and-is-willing-to-discuss-all-of-it that shows up on this blog. There are no false pretenses or carefully constructed images of yourself here, so I always look to this little corner of cyberspace as the place I can rely on when I need a reality check.
HI Ali, I am a Durham yoga teacher and have been teaching for about 2.5 years. I love your blog because it offers important facts, great tips, interesting commentary, but most of all, because you make me think, and laugh. Both are important to me in my life and teaching. Thanks for always putting yourself out there with grace and humor!
