What makes a great teacher? Two answers from my teachers
“A great yoga teacher embodies the qualities of humility, integrity, patience, knowledge and humour. They are on the path, working on themselves, so they can be a lighthouse for consciousness.” Katy Appleton (appleyoga.com)
“A good yoga teacher is a practitioner not a performer. Always have the time to help, adjust or give instruction in breath work as well as asana and remembers to get off the mat. A great teacher needs the eye, the hand, and most importantly, the heart.” Anne-Marie Newland (sun-power-yoga.co.uk)
"A good teacher remains a student"

We at Vernyoga love it when companies or individuals help out or offer us support in some way and we love to pay it back. So, here's a shout out to Skate Station in Brookwood, Surrey for all your hockey and skating needs.
