121: How To Teach When You’re Not Feeling Inspired

Today I’m here to share a vulnerable update of my life lately, and some tools I’m using to teach great yoga classes even though I’m in a very challenging season. I’ll be honest, there almost wasn’t a podcast episode this month. This has been one of the hardest summers of my life and I’ve been feeling totally underwater. I realized the middle of the month had already passed and I had no interviews scheduled and no ideas for a podcast episode. 

But then I remembered… I’ve been teaching through it all! And I’ve actually felt great about what and how I’ve been teaching.

So today I am sharing a few ideas that I hope support you if you’re struggling to find inspiration for your teaching. 

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • how to identify why you are not feeling inspired
  • the difference between private clients and group classes when you’re lacking inspiration
  • why being gentle with yourself is always the first instruction
  • how to come up with dharma teachings when you’re struggling
  • How to freshen up stale sequences
  • why taking a class without the intention of actually taking it is a good idea!
