In the wake of public scandals and cases of questionable ethics from high-profile teachers, many people in the yoga community have been digging into the deeper and more challenging questions behind the teacher-student relationship. By all appearances, people have been floundering around trying to figure out what this means.
The thing is, somebody has already written the definitive guide to teaching yoga and the complex questions that come with it. Internationally recognized yoga teacher, Donna Farhi, published Teaching Yoga: Exploring the Teacher-Student Relationship (with IAYB sponsor, Rodmell Press) in 2006. The classic book quietly became a requisite for YTTs around the world.
IAYB is happy to give away three copies of this wonderful book and the wisdom it contains. To enter, all you have to do is answer the question: What does it mean to be a yoga teacher? (If you currently teach yoga, feel free to draw from your experience; if you don’t teach, feel free to philosophize).
