Hi Yogis, this is the latest installment in my Yoga Teacher Interview Series, which I am sharing to support and inspire you in finding success your way in this career!
In this wide ranging conversation with insightful and warm yoga innovator, Trina Altman traces her journey from fashion design to Goldman Sachs, to teaching yoga, learning from a devastating shoulder injury, and embracing life-long learning in her pursuit of understanding anatomy and biomechanics —which led to her forthcoming book Yoga Deconstructed®: Transitioning from Rehabilitation Back into the Yoga Studio.
Some other topics we cover are how:
1) you can hone your skills in non traditional places
2) solving your own problems can be your niche
3) what seems like a limitation at first can actually become a doorway to discover new possibilities
4) you have to find your tribe of students and colleagues rather than bang your head against the wall trying to make people like things they’re not interested in
Trina also gives lots of other nuggets of advice to new and/or struggling teachers.
If you listen please share your thoughts on these topics! We would love to continue the conversation
