Teaching on Purpose with Jamie Lugo

What does it mean to “Teach on Purpose”?

To teach on purpose means to teach not only with purpose, from purpose, and for a purpose but also to teach in alignment with YOUR life purpose. Yoga asks us the ubiquitous question “Who am I?” In our early studies as a yoga teacher, we ask the question “What?”. In this 25-hour module we will ask the questions, “Why?” and “Who?” and learn to teach from that place. When we teach from our “why” with a clear sense of who we are, we are able to consistently show up for our students while remaining in alignment with our values, personality and purpose.

We will explore the value system of a yoga teacher (The Yamas and Niyamas) as well as get clear on our individual values, on and off the mat. We will identify and examine our reason for choosing the seat of the teacher and deeply align ourselves with that motivation through our voice, language, tone, range and presence.

Teaching from the highest version of ourselves is a practice. In “Teaching on Purpose” Jamie will combine coaching methods, yoga philosophy and effective teaching tools to stay connected and true to yourself and your students. Staying in alignment with your values and purpose helps to avoid burnout, “zoom teaching fatigue” and show up consistently for ourselves and our students from an authentic and genuine place.
