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 journaling exercise to get you out of your comfort zone, if you are willing to take the leap with me. But first a story - a reflection on the Baptiste Teacher Certification course, which happened during the weekend of Jan 19-20th, 2019.
It's not a review - but more of what I've discovered newly in my teaching, practice and life.
It's a good reminder for those who did attend and an encouragement to those who'd like to know more of what goes on in a Baptiste training.
