You think, breathe, and dream about yoga. Your yoga buddies are your best friends. You talk yoga every chance you get. It's your reigning passion and metaphor; you prescribe it for every human ill. Why not teach? Since you must make a living—pay the rent and feed the cat and maybe even support a family—you want to do something that you love.
But are you prepared for the trials of teaching yoga? It ain't easy, but as we all know, nothing worthwhile is easy. Like any other profession, teaching yoga calls for a particular set of skills, talent, and drive. To teach yoga, you must be true to your understanding of the practice. This requires maturity, honesty, and faith.
