Today’s media landscape – which equates leadership with certainty of opinion, popularity, or charisma – can be challenging for yoga teachers to navigate. So today, hosts Tiffany and Rachel explore what leadership can look like in the yoga world.
We discuss the importance of humility and vulnerability, the challenge of balancing evidence-based with more traditional inputs, and whether there are different expectations of yoga teachers than there are of other roles in our communities.
Listen in as we explore the kind of leadership that lifts everyone up.
