Advice on bringing your creativity into the yoga studio


Before I started to teach yoga, I was working in marketing and promotion. In that career, I was always showcasing other people’s creativity. For a while, this was nice because I could hide behind other artists, musicians, and photographers, but I had a longing to nurture my own creativity.  I would never have thought of teaching yoga, so I started learning instruments and trying all kinds of things, but never found something that fit . Eventually, my yoga teacher basically pushed me into becoming a teacher myself.


When I first started to teach yoga, I always used other people’s inspirational quotes during class. I hadn’t yet found my voice. But then I realized that teaching yoga was the space where I can be creative. This was a scary realization, because suddenly I couldn’t hide behind anybody else. But it also an expansive development because I finally found what I had been looking for. The yoga that I share now comes from my heart and it’s based on my experience. My life now is about inspiring people and sparking them to find their creativity.
