New blog! Temp link in bio -
My intention is to teach yoga. In order to make sure that my outcome matches my intention I always have to ask myself the questions what, why, and how? When I teach is what I am teaching on topic in relation to a yoga practice and its concepts? Why am I choosing to use the methods that I am, do they accurately allow students interaction with the topic's concepts? Can I site the traditional sources that I am drawing my concepts and topics from and can clearly tie how I teach to how I'm trying to teach those concepts?
It's never perfect, nor am I, but as I learn more and evolve I challenge myself to continue to adapt in a way that more directly allows my intention of teaching yoga to be the outcome of my methods and effort.
I'm also huge on giving credit where it's due for innovations, concepts, and ideas. I see that effort and how to not culturally appropriate in a similar way. Some of the ideas, tools and techniques I use to teach other teachers didn't originate in my mind. Because of that I don't own them, I use them with the original intent in mind and site the source when sharing those techniques with others.
There are many people who I cite each and every time I teach for helping me work in a more effective and clear way. To name just a few, @tombuderwitz always gets credit for creating a super effective method that visually depicts the commonalities between poses, something that until he drew it, existed only inside my mind and was difficult to show other people. @zach_spafford gets credit for the way that I visually explain how muscles work as well as how lines of compensation and/or tension exist and function. @haleymatherly gets credit for giving words to a process of class planning that makes teaching an individual practice in group setting more personal, autonomous, and effective. And on and on.

If we can look at appropriation and yoga in that light then it gets a lot easier and allows us to be wise. Oh and the title of this piece that Zach wrote is credited to @adastra316 who came up with this example which still makes me laugh every time.

Enjoy the read...

Looking back, hindsight is always 20/20. Intentions don’t always lead us to the outcome we seek. But from the mistakes made lessons are learned which bring our intentions to a place that is more congruent with the our intended outcome.

My friend, fellow teacher, and student @doctordrea has written a beautiful piece about the boredom that can come with a longer term practice and what to do with it. She was nice enough to include some of my suggestions. Oh....don't worry, she doesn't suggest adding goats or fire wands. Temp link in bio.
