Perception tells me that yoga teachers are many different things to many different people. I could describe what it is for me in a myriad of different ways.
I choose one. Love.
In the situation of a class or workshop, I simply play the role of the teacher and you play your role as that of student. In this role-playing and in this light we see it is purely circumstantial that I will sit in front of you and not the reverse.
I simultaneously learn from our interactions so you, no doubt, will also be teaching me. It is an exchange between us. Please remember that neither I nor anyone else can really teach you for the biggest teacher we can ever have is ourselves. What I can offer is my experience and my presence, giving suggestions, pointers and guidance and accompany you on your journey.
