As a teacher, it is very important to continue with your own personal practice. When you are in a class, you are teaching for others, not yourself. It is not a time to show off or try your moves. Yes, you can make the class personal by sharing some of your experiences but your main priority is the students. Depending on how many classes you teach each week, you can start to feel burnout which is why having a personal practice is important. This is your time to be the student. It’s also the time to work on poses you want to accomplish.
Here are some poses I am going to incorporate into my personal practice.
I know how to get into Crow and stay (somewhat) but my goal is to be able to hold it longer and lengthen/straighten out my arms)
Monkey Pose (Hanumanasana)
My goal is to have my lower body completely connect with the mat.
Mountain (Tadasana) to Wheel (Urdhva Dhanurasana) Dropback.
The mental block is real!
Forearm Stand (Pincha Mayurasana)
I’m confident in my headstand. Now, my goal is to support my whole body with my forearms.
