Teach Teaching Yoga in the Age of COVID-19

Teaching Yoga in the Age of COVID-19

-

- Advertisment -


Like so many others, I am unsalaried and part of the service industry. So far, four events (and counting?!) I was booked for have been cancelled. This feels particularly poignant since it happens on the tail end of making a commitment to myself to be more discerning in where my energy is valued and with whom I am aligned. In blunter words, I already chose to make less money in 2020, then COVID-19 arrived. And now the events I did chose are being responsibly cancelled. And like many others, I don’t have a fallback. I also know I had the privilege to chose this life of teaching yoga. And I’m scared shitless.

Hands and legs in meditation

After the third event was cancelled, I paused. I spent an entire day cooking and making a playlist to self-soothe. I checked in on my people. For me, this was akin to putting on my oxygen mask first before attempting to help others. I took refuge in my practice. I sought the grace my practice has instilled me with.
