5 Essential Tips For Teachers
by Fred Busch, Director of Yoga Teacher Trainings Worldwide
Tip #1 – Be a Yogi and Live Yoga
Being a Yoga Teacher is not about simply having a good career. Teaching Yoga is not just a regular job like all the rest. The most important aspect of Great Yoga Teachers is that they live Yoga. It is OK to be a part time yoga teacher, and full time Yogi… in fact that is ideal! It is not OK to be a full time yoga teacher while only being a part-time Yogi. Yoga students can often sense who are the teachers that practice what they teach.
Tip #2 – Teach with Love not Ego
Teaching with an intention of LOVE for your students and teaching with their best interest and safety in mind is a very important attitude. Students don’t like to be just told what to do for the sake of it… rather they appreciate when a teacher has love in their eyes and is interested in their overall long term wellbeing!
Tip #3 – Apply Yoga to Individuals Safely
Although teaching group yoga classes is common in the West, it is important to remember that Yoga needs o be applied individually to students. It is not ideal to have everybody doing exactly the same thing when certain people have injuries and others may have other reasons why certain postures are not valuable for them. Teaching safe yoga classes should be the primary intention for yoga teachers!
Tip #4 – Be Responsible and Prepare to Work Hard
Being successful in any enterprise requires hard work and teaching yoga is no different. A good work ethic and the ability to be very responsible and dependable and to rarely if ever have substitutes for your classes is one of the hallmarks of the most successful yoga teachers. If you believe that teaching yoga is an easy career that does not require tenacity, perseverance and hard work…then you are incorrect.
Tip #5 – Always Be a Student and Keep Learning
The only way to be a great teacher is to be a great student. The ability to keep learning and keep growing in wisdom is the best way to stay of service to your students. If you as the teacher stop learning and studying then it won’t take long for your students who are enthusiastic and motivated to surpass you in both practice, theory, and understanding.

More Keys to Become the Best Yogi and Yoga Teacher possible! Take care of yourself first! Don’t burn the candle at both ends… get lots of rest, sleep good and take naps if your lifestyle permits.

1. Daily Exercise -Yoga or Swimming are the best and most comprehensive regimens that
offer a lifetime of practice due to their non-repititive stress nature. Exercise every day
provides benefits to your cardiovascular and immune systems, while helping the blood
detoxify and oxygenating the body. There is no way to overstate the value of daily exercise. Exercising for 20-90 minutes each day with no days off ever is ideal. Only in circumstances
of bodily fever or severe illness would we ever skip a day of our practice.
2. Daily Meditation – Yoga Meditation is different from all other forms of meditation in both it’s intention and execution. With Yoga Meditation we discover the role that the subconscous mind plays in the direction of your life and future. We learn that we have been programming ourselves without knowing it with very limiting and innacurate ways of navigating the world. Yoga’s approach to meditation as outlined by Patanjali, and which will be explained by Fred during the program offers a way to accuss the subconscious mind so that we can become masters of our own destiny and experience Samadhi, or identification with the Absolute. 10-60 minutes
3. Vigilance and Awareness are two very important words for us as Yogis (Meditators) –
