I'm so exhausted with the "It's all about me attitude"....nope, I'm sorry it's not. We have to get back to thinking about others. Even when it's not easy.
This is my current response to a FB group called "Yoga Teachers" I am in.
Honestly this kind of hatefulness I am responding to in this post is one reason I am backing out of the public yoga world to some degree.
Full Disclosure: I owned a studio for 2 years (after many years of working as a teacher and yoga director) , closed it when my building was sold and decided not to move. I traveled and taught for a few years and came back to teach in a shared space I rented to offer classes where I made as much money teaching as when I had my studio without the headaches. I have no stake in my opinions as I now work in the corporate world as a contracted yoga therapist, I'm in charge of me and I like it. I still own a very successful school that has been in business for ten years and has trained over 205 teachers to date. I will retire from school ownership in 2019 by choice to focus on my work as a yoga therapist, writer and presenter.
