I have been teaching Bikram Yoga for twelve years, and have been running my studio for ten. Finding quality teachers is, without a doubt, one of the most challenging aspects of directing a studio. The most important attribute I look for in a teacher is respect. Respect for the studio, the practice, and especially for the students in their pursuit to heal both their bodies and minds through yoga.
In the midst of so much upheaval and confusion in our yoga community, I found it more and more difficult to find teachers who fit this criteria. I was wondering how I was ever going to be able to maintain a quality teaching staff. Through a fortunate turn of events, I was able to hire two graduates from the Raja Yoga Academy program just a few months ago. I am extremely pleased with both of the young women, and could not have asked for more quality preparedness in these new teachers.
Their presence in our studio has been extremely positive for both myself and our students, and the feedback from the students has been outstanding. They have clearly been properly prepared by this program, and were both able to teach with confidence from day one. I actually feel a tremendous sense of relief knowing there is this level of training available.
I am confident in the future of my studio, and I believe the best is yet to come for our community. Thank you Craig for coming through with such an outstanding program!
