  • You are so inspiring! I been working so hard to implement myself and now I have so many tools (kundalini yoga, Hatha, reiki, soundbaths…) to help others but I been also having a difficult time to make a good use of those tools to be financially independent…

  • MynetDiary.com is a great resource for weight loss. I read this biog everyday and it has help me break past the plateau that sometime happens when loosing weight. I have also had great success using https://mmini.me/looseweightnow during the my plateau and back to loosing weight. I hope this helps others!

  • I can’t wait for the perfectionism series, seriously it will be the best.
    I tell myself yoga is a practice not a perfect and that is slowly embedding into my being thanks to all your hard work and teachings. Thank you Melissa and Tim. Namaste Becky. X

  • You are such a queen of technique. And always with such energy and a fantastic good mood! I just realized I DO open my support foot also in tree pose etc.:-(

  • I have your book and your App! I think you’re great….so happy to see this YouTube Class and hope to see the others, too!! Thank you:)

So looking forward to this next series on Perfectionism.

  • Thanks for these videos, Cara! I just finished a yoga teacher training and these tips are helpful. Are you putting up a 4th video?

  • Wow! Thank you so much Melissa and Tim for all you do for this channel and for your students! I’m really looking forward to the series! Blessings to you both! ����

  • This is really helpful thank you. I just have one question: If I announce the pose first will many student come straight into the full expression before I have a chance to use active verbs and speak to body parts? Does this matter?

  • This is why you are amazing Melissa, the time and effort you take to teach us help us is amazing! Thank you! I’m excited to try the new classes ������

  • This is brilliant! Just what I need at this moment in my yoga teaching journey. Learnt a lot from just the experience of teaching and trial and error but would be good to have some guidance. I’ll definitely sign up for a personal feedback session with you in the future

  • Thank you for sharing… the part that surprises me… how come so many people do not learn this in their teacher training? I teach Forrest Yoga and these are the basics we learn in our 200 hr training.

  • Hey Shayna how do you decide on an hourly rate and is it the same if you’re teaching a new student versus someone who wants a workout?

  • There is definitely a blessing in disguise to graduating YTT literally 2 seconds before COVID… leaning on a lot of online videos to hone and refine skills. Stumbled on this link. And you will see me in a studio Zoom of yours real soon to experience your skill live.:)

  • I have watched all 3! Fascinating and incredibly important info. I have a Yoga practical exam tomorrow and I’m using this info! You’re brilliant teacher. Inspirating! Thank you:-)

  • This journey (for me) has to be based on a healthy lifestyle mindset for the rest of my life. The scale is stupid; all it knows is how much my total mass (muscle, fat, bones and fluid) weighs at that specific moment that can change a few times a day! I can’t chase a number. My goal is to be at a size where I’m healthy & joints don’t ache. I want to be healthy enough to enjoy being a senior. I focus on the behaviours that give me sustainable results. Love your motivational videos. Keep up the good work, Ryan.

  • Thank you…..what i learned from your advice: keep in mind right from the beginning how you want to end up, so u can follow that direction persistently, otherwise you will be all over the place.

  • I was recently accepted into Kripalu for my 200hr YTT! I’m so excited!! Yoga is what I really want to do with my life, and I want to grow a business. Did you go to college? If so what did you major in?☺

  • Hi friend. I just found you for some reason Yesterday, and was meant to be. I just quit to one studio and I started teaching in a gym. And I love it, I just want to expand.

  • Such great instructions, thank you so much. I’ve never had anyone walk through the importance of our instructions as you did. You have helped me so much to help others. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience.

  • Self -discipline
    Your ability to listen to and take action based on your inner voice regardless of how you feel, other influences, or temptations you faceis the key to self mastery.
    Discipline = the ultimate expression of self love ❤️

    Thanks you for a brilliant inspirational video.

  • I strongly suspect I’m guilty of all 7 Thank you so much foe this awesome tutorial. This will definitely revolutionise my practice. You are a star. ��❤️��

  • i’m so glad i found you! I’m seeking to grow as a yoga instructor, and I am seeking to do that with a different instructor outside of the studio from which I got my teacher training.

  • I don’t know how my daughter ‘s name shows up on my comments and I don’t know how to fix it, but I am Barbara Salmi making these comments.

  • Easy, accessible instructions. Thank you Cara for reminding me on some of these points and learning new tips. Much appreciated, can’t wait to watch the second and third video.

  • Thank you, Michael!!! I especially love what you say about SILENCE…SO important. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without spending a lot of time in silence, reviewing my thoughts and allowing solutions to work themselves out. I teach chair yoga to elders and have offered it to Metta and I appreciate your ideas and will incorporate them into my classes. Namaste!

  • I reckon this is one of your best yet, Ryan. Your handle on mindset is bang-on.
    My biggie is emotional eating. Intellectually I get it when and why I do it, strategies to overcome it… but none of that helps curb the behaviour (except perhaps temporarily).
    Truth is, nothing can soothe me like food can not because there’s anything special about food, except that’s what I’ve learnt so it’s my default, hard-wired coping mechanism (for others it may be smokes, alcohol, gambling).
    It feels like an endless civil war between my higher brain and reptilian brain and the latter far too often wins the battle. And because I only eat whole plant foods, there’s no discernible damage from overeating so why stop??!!
    Intellectually, it looks really simple, but changing the behaviour feels off-the-charts difficult. I would love to know the thoughts of anyone who has overcome it.
    Love your work (and your books)!

  • thank you for this, so precious, my problem is to hold the pose, but surely i will follow your advices to correct the posture!!!!!

  • Thank you so much for making this video. I have just recently completed a 250hr Vinyasa course. I got a job working at a Gym, and was considering taking on some private clients also. After hearing your message, I think I will take the leap! Thank you again!

  • Some great points, Michael! I personally don’t practice when I teach or play music when teaching Vinyasa. I go back and forth on the music because I have had students tell me that the music can actually help them focus on the breath and practice more because it acts as “white noise” to help them quiet their thoughts. I definitely get what you’re saying though, that’s part of our service to our students to pay attention to THEM and help them focus on their own. And yes, yes, yes to KEEP IT SIMPLE!! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
