As yoga teachers, we are conscious leaders. Leaders are self-aware (i.e: know their strengths and weaknesses), hold themselves accountable, inspire with a clear vision (intention, sankalpa), listen for possibilities and are constantly learning and become luminaries.
It’s important to differentiate between love and fear leadership style.
Lead with Fear:
Negative self-talk: I am not enough
Stuck in the past
Believes in struggling/mending
Lead with Love:
Driven by love and empowerment of self and others.
Positive self talk
Able to see possibilities.
Believe doing what you love without struggle (when struggle shows up, follow it, and say: was is it here to teach me?)
