Teaching yoga in a group vs. doing that individually doesn’t give off the same energy. Regardless, it is always beautiful, always rich, for the student, as well as the teacher.
I love to teach yoga. Teaching yoga is transmitting a beautiful philosophy in my mind. Teaching yoga is evolving together in a beautiful energy.
The teacher him-/herself receives so many benefits from it without even indulging in postures and other breathing or relaxation exercises. It’s just magic!
When teaching a group, the energies intertwine and merge to amplify our beings and intensely vibrate more light from within. It’s beautiful.
Teaching individually, in a private session, is a whole ‘nother experience. The group’s energy is certainly more limited there, but another type of magic operates – that of healing, for the person who receives the teaching and the one giving it.
The therapists, the humble ones who admit that they, too, are on the way as we are, often tell us that the patients and their stories mirror theirs. By accompanying someone towards their healing, the therapist also progresses towards their own.
I’m not a therapist, I don’t pretend to be, I teach yoga, but yoga is therapy, and therapy that works damn well. By teaching yoga I became, in the broad sense of the term, a wellness therapist.
In individual sessions, I let myself be guided by the present moment. I am connected to my intuition and my teaching springs out from me in an instinctive and fluid way according to my feelings in the given moment.
The postures that I choose, the words that I use, the accents that I put on involving a different part of the body, the emotions I omit, the breathing or the visualization that I offer at a precise moment, everything comes to me in a natural, instinctive way.
Each session, with each person, at each moment is different. Each session is an opportunity for the person to move towards healing. Each session gives the opportunity to also advance on the path of my recovery.
Whether with children or with adults, whether in groups or individually, I always offer my sincerity and generosity, and I see myself growing as a yoga teacher and as a human being in each of my classes, each of my meetings.
Thank you for your trust. Thanks for letting me help you. Thanks for your help.
