Yesterday afternoon I taught my first yoga class as a certified yoga teacher.
After completing my 10-month teacher training program I planned a trip to Tucson to visit family, get in a little relax time at the Arizona Inn and to teach my first yoga class.
I had 12 students total, including Hilda and my dad.
A few of the students were invited by me, many were Hilda’s regulars and there was one couple who found the class by looking up a class that fit in their schedule. Plus they liked the idea of the donation class.
As I am not a huge fan talking in front of a group of people (talk about taking myself out of my comfort zone) I was super nervous as the class began.
But eventually I felt comfortable and at ease. I felt confident in what and how I was teaching.
The class seemed to respond well to me, my humor, my class and my style. I just kept things simple and I was just who I am.
I received a lot of great feedback and plan to continue to grow and improve my teaching.
As I start subbing and teaching classes and along with setting up one-one-one sessions I will make updates on Go Fit Girl’s My Yoga Classes page.
