Overview


Drawing on decades of experience in training Yoga teachers, Donna Farhi offers the first book to set professional standards for yoga teachers. Teaching Yoga explores with depth and compassion a variety of topics both practical and philosophical, including how to create healthy boundaries; the student-teacher relationship (including whether a sexual relationship is acceptable); how to create physical and emotional safety for the student; what is a reasonable class size; how much a class should cost; and how to conduct the business of teaching while upholding the integrity of Yoga as a philosophy, a science, and an art. A bonus CD features the author speaking about yoga ethics at a 2002 conference.

I really liked the first half of this book and was very interested to read about how yoga students may perceive their teacher, as well as the problems that occur due to lack of defined parameters in this type of relationship. The second half however was a little repetitive and I felt that the strictness of her attitude could scare a lot of people away from becoming a yoga teacher. Bet definitely, do read the first chapters!
