Why Teach Baptiste Yoga

Why Teach Baptiste Yoga

This week I'm tooting my own horn because I've just unlocked next level in Baptiste Yoga accreditation! I remember when I first did my Baptiste Level 1 trainingin 2016, never would I have imagined I'd travel to the USA several times to train with Baron and Paige, and I'm very proud to say that I'm now a Tier 2 Certified Baptiste Yoga Educator. And 6 years ago, I’d never even thought it’s possible for me to teach yoga.

I love how they differentiate the "title" of each level from

Teacher>Leader>Educator>Influencer.

Although on paper, I'm just a plain ol' yoga TEACHER, yet there's an inner sense of pride knowing I've done so much tto get where I am, despite my negative thoughts. :)

And being a YOGA EDUCATOR sounds about right for what I'm up to right now.

Duncan Peak's Top 10 Secrets to Being a Good Yoga Teacher

Duncan Peak's Top 10 Secrets to Being a Good Yoga Teacher

I’m trying to restart a little dream of mine - to provide support and inspiration to yoga teachers; budding + experienced. And I’m starting with the man who trained me in Power Vinyasa in 2014 and who inspired me to be an amazing yoga teacher and person.

Duncan Peak - he is the founder of Power Living, which has studios in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide.

I even entertained the thought of bringing the Power Living brand to Singapore - on my HUGE possibility list!! :)

He wrote about his top 10 secrets to being a good yoga teacher.

A lot of common sense in article but my top 2 takeaways is

  1. That a good yoga teacher is if they can bring the same boring old breath and down dog to life, day after day, and

  2. To forget inspiring everyone and just focus on staying inspired yourself.
