Office Yoga: A Teacher’s Perspective
by Shailee Aragon
“I booked my work travel around your class next week because I really don’t want to miss Tuesday! My wife told me that she noticed a difference in my confidence and posture; even better: I actually feel like I can go through flows now.” -James
“You provide a good combination of the same stuff to make us feel like we are getting the hang of it and enough new stuff to challenge us.” -Casey
“Wow I just realized how much I need this in my life. I’ve even been practicing what I remember from class at home.” -Anton
“I feel so much better after class. I wish I would have known about this when I had my knee surgery because it is a lot more effective than what I was doing for physical therapy.” -Erica
It’s so easy to feel like you’re not doing enough as a yoga teacher. My Office Yoga students though, have encouraged me just by sharing their experiences. I love seeing that my students are progressing and developing in their practice. It is even more amazing when they realize that the benefits of their practice extend beyond just physical. I am fueled by bringing healing modalities to all students regardless if they’ve been practicing for over a decade or are brand new to the mat.
Teaching for Office Yoga has helped me grow and feel empowered. So to my fellow teachers I saw: keep on teaching! You have no idea the impact you may be making on your students’ lives (both professional as well as personal).
