Deep Bows and thanks to @YA and @YAP
First, @YogaAllianceProfessionals recognised me as an experienced teacher three years ago. Now I’ve finally been recognised as an experienced teacher by @YogaAlliance.
I have been teaching yoga for over 20 years and I have a PhD in Philosophy. But I have really struggled with believing in myself as an experienced teacher. I look at 20 and 30 year olds and wonder where they get their sense of assurance! Perhaps as one gets older, one gets a sense of the possibilities of failure as a road to learning, as well as the possibilities of success. Let me be a light to those who continue on the long road of suffering, make mistakes time and again, but maintain the Hatha heart which is a dogged determination to carry on, without fame, without glory, simply because learning and deepening one’s insight inevitably lead one closer to a wise attitude. Compassion is where it’s at for me. I hope I can be of some use to more human and more-than-human systems now that I have achieved this recognition. Onwards!
