” Having a point of reference is absolutely necessary. We need somebody who can hold a mirror in front of us. There must be a personal connection, a real relationship that is based on trust.”

Certified Yoga Teacher – 300 hour teacher training completed 2017

I completed Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Therapy Toronto. I learned the importance of teaching one on one, allowing the teacher to work with the student at their level. When teaching group classes it is best to teach according to the skill level of the group, mindfully with the intention to protect the well being of all those in the class. Asana, and others aspects of Yoga are best practiced with a steady breath. The breath is your gauge that tells you if you are practicing at your level or if you are doing damage. If you try to take yourself into a pose where you are not able to breath comfortably then you will know to modify the pose or come out of that pose and gently rest.

My teachers, Felicia and Ante Pavlovic trace their source of teaching to Yogacarya Sri T Krishnamacharya.

On their website they describe his practice and way of teaching.

He taught that yoga should always be adapted to the unique needs, circumstances and goals of each individual. In refusing to standardize the practice and teaching methodology, he demonstrated a deep understanding of yoga relevant for all students.
