Teaching Yoga In New Environments

Change can be both exciting and intimidating, especially when it involves leaving a familiar setting and venturing into uncharted territory. For the past 13 years, I've been teaching yoga in the cozy atmosphere of a studio. Recently, I found myself facing a significant transition – teaching yoga at Adventhealth Fieldhouse and Laws of Fitness, two very different environments. Many asked, "Are you going to like teaching yoga there?" Frankly, I wasn't sure. It was a big change, but today, I can emphatically answer: YES! Let me share with you why I've fallen in love with teaching yoga in these new spaces.

Advent Fieldhouse is a state-of-the-art facility that brings a breath of fresh air to Winter Haven. Its modern, clean, and vibrant atmosphere immediately caught my attention. Stepping into this space, I felt a sense of rejuvenation and renewal. The scent of possibility filled the air, replacing the familiar incense and candles of the studio.

One thing that stood out from the very beginning was the staff at Advent Fieldhouse. Their support and enthusiasm made me feel right at home.

Teaching yoga in a different setting means attracting a new audience and becoming part of an evolving community. This is both exciting and invigorating. As I roll out my mat in these new locations, I see new faces eager to explore yoga alongside long time students continuing their practice. This diversity is enriching, and I cherish the opportunity to guide them on their yoga journey.

A wise yoga teacher friend of mine said, "We are the incense, candles, and cozy feeling. We can practice yoga anywhere." This statement couldn't be more accurate. While the surroundings may change, the essence of yoga remains the same. It's about mindfulness, breath, and connection – elements that transcend the studio walls.

Transitioning from a beloved studio to Advent Fieldhouse and Laws of Fitness was undoubtedly a significant change in my yoga teaching journey. However, this change has brought new experiences, new connections, and a renewed passion for sharing yoga with my community. I've learned that yoga is adaptable, and its power to transform lives remains constant, no matter where it's practiced. So, if you find yourself facing a similar transition or contemplating a change, remember that the heart of yoga is within you, and it can thrive anywhere.

As I continue to teach in these new spaces, I invite you to join me. Let's explore the transformative power of yoga together in this exciting new chapter of our yoga journey. Namaste.
