8: What Are Our Responsibilities as Yoga Teachers?
As yoga evolves with our modern lives, the typical yoga class is becoming part physical therapy, emotional therapy, mindfulness, and a kick-ass workout. To balance all of these expectations, yoga teachers need to wear many different hats, from recommending exercises to providing emotional support. In this episode, we examine the appropriateness of the responsibilities of a modern yoga teacher.
