I’m Not Sure I Want to Teach Yoga

I often hear people say “I’m not sure if I want to teach yoga,” when thinking about a yoga teacher training. My heart responds, we are ALL teachers.

Wisdom teachers abound everywhere you go. Each time you order a latte at your favorite coffee shop you are teaching by the example you set for those around you: how to be kind. When you park your car at the grocery store you are teaching others how to be gracious. When you share what you have you are teaching generosity.

We do not need to all teach #asana (yoga poses) post YTT but certainly investing in a program that opens your heart to who you really are is more than worthwhile.

Over the last 20 years of teaching and leading a Yoga School the best students are those that don’t have a meticulous post program action plan. Instead, they are focused on learning and experiencing their personal growth. Just as in a yoga class the goal is the practice rather than accomplishing a “pose.” In Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) allow your intention to be to show up as your real self and peal back the layers of all that stands in the way of living your most authentic life.

The Best teachers are those that know themselves the best. 

And from the study of the self, to the self, through the self, what are you ready to teach?

And we can ALL #teachpeace

The world needs more Teachers of #Peace. And that sort of teaching is off the mat, no yoga studio or class necessary. It can become the way we live our lives.

What’s a Dosha?

What’s a Dosha?

#Ayurvedic philosophy is grounded in the belief that the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether) manifest in everything. These 5 elements are expressed in 3 Doshas which are a combination of 2 elements:

Vata = Ether and Air
Pitta = Fire and Water
Kapaha = Earth and Water

Join me #AlchemyofYoga YTT #teachertraining and learn how this #alchemy of #earth #water #fire #air #ether impact your life.

Each person has a unique combination of Doshas from the time of conception. Each Dosha has characteristics that manifest physically, mentally and emotionaly in our bodies. Ayurveda strives to balance these Doshas using a combination of lifestyle choices and diet.

Every Little Step Encourages Growth

Grown up #crow pose. A reminder that every little step matters. The smaller poses of our lives create momentum to keep growing towards greater expansion.

This experience of teaching ourselves ultimately becomes the passageway for knowing how to teach others to achieve these growth points.

A great teacher knows how to break down the poses step-by-step making the preparation golden and accessible to all. They give their student the tools necessary to be successful even faster than themselves.

They inspire them to practice every day.

Meet Teresa Correia Future Yoga Teacher and Inspiration Leader

I have the honor to introduce you to Teresa Correia, Inspiration Leader, Future Yoga Teacher with Alchemy of Yoga in Bali! Never stop believing in your dreams.


I’ve always known I want to be a yoga teacher one day. After stepping out of my first yoga experience at the age of 18, I knew I had just been drawn into the most beautiful life long practise.

There was also fear. Turning a passion into purpose is something I am tentative of. Feeding my fears of obligation and commitment. I figured I’d do it later in life. It was sort of in my ‘too hard basket’.

It’s funny how the big things in life seem to happen all at once. I thought I was having a really horrible week when I was made redundant from my job, my knee injury worsened (I was training to run the Queenstown marathon on my 24th birthday and those hopes were dwindling fast) I had the flu and I just felt like I had never met lady luck in my life.

Just as I was settling back into the cold intimacy of rock bottom, just about to throw away the last trivial amount of hope I held…my horrible week got a lot less horrible. I got offered the scholarship of my dreams.

Screenshot 2016-08-26 16.32.41I didn’t want to jinx it when the next serendipitous ‘coincidence’ happened. I asked a question to the Alchemy Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training team, and after a few emails back and fourth, I was offered a life changing scholarship.

I was beyond excited. I only told my partner, parents and dog because based on my long spell of bad luck I had grown superstitious and I didn’t want to curse it.

I was due to leave in a month, and I spent my minimal life savings on flights the next day.

In my 23 years of this life, my brain and the universe have taken me to some harrowing places. Yoga has always been the single thing I know I can always come back to. The practice to ground, to realign, to reconnect with myself and the earth. To feel my heart beat in my body once again. I think it is vital to smile and to practise the often unacknowledged currency of the universe; love.

THE COUNTDOWN…26 AUG – 31 DAYS TILL DEPARTURE:
Today I sense absolute joy, anticipation and nervousness throughout my body, mind and soul. To me, these feel like grounded sensations in today’s context. The most nourishing emotion I feel today, in my gut, is peace and truth. I know this is the right path of my journey, I haven’t felt this way about many situations, so this is a very cleansing and refreshing feeling. This blanket of absolution that seems to be surrounding me is such a welcomed change.

Of course I’m daunted and scared, who wouldn’t be? It will be hard work and there will be moments of adversity, but I think that’s how all the best things in life are formed. One of my teachers reminded me that in order to be a teacher; one must remain a lifelong student. I am also reminded of one of the many pieces of wisdom that my mother has offered me; “education is the progressive discovery of our own ignorance”.

Screenshot 2016-08-26 16.32.29My mum is more than my best friend. She is my go-to-woman for any hurdle that life might raise. She will always be my biggest safety net and we have a spiritual link that needs no explanation. She was my first home, that her body assembled around me, my first love song was annotated by her heartbeat. She has, and will continue, to shape me to be just as strong, just as tall and just as astute as all of the sky scraper women who came before me.

Last night she messaged me a quote that she said seems to sum me up; “She was beautifully out of place. Sometimes I believe she intended to be. Like the moon during the day”. I agreed with her.

Today I have been inundated with ideas about my future. I have drafted a few designs of my logo, I have started to write down ideas for my website which my partner will help me launch when I return home after teacher training, and I have started my study and preparations for what is ahead, and I am so HAPPY.

Go with the Flow

☀️ GO WITH THE FLOW ☀️
‪#‎AlchemyofYoga‬: How to Live an INSPIRED Life: Yoga is about wholeness, health, and vital living. It is about a life inspired in body, mind, and spirit. Through movement, meditation, discussion, and journaling, we will explore the vast resources related to How to Live an INSPIRED Life by focusing on the last three ‪#‎Niyamas‬ or personal practices that comprise the Alchemy of Yoga. from the Yoga Sutras (Chapter 2, Verse 1), “Tapas svadhaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga,” they transform us on three levels through Physical, Mental, and ‪#‎Spiritual‬ ‪#‎Alchemy‬. These are necessary for bringing about real, lasting change and cultivating inner happiness and spiritual bliss.

Experience the alchemy of the five elements, the four directions, and the chakra system as an inner and outer map of transformation. These are archetypal and energetic maps that are as metaphorical as they are very real and embodied. Everything we see, taste, touch, feel, and do can be interpreted through the gateway of the elements, directions, and chakras. We will learn how to tap into these sacred relationships and align ourselves with their alchemy in order to gain insight into healing our world. Learn more here.
