Qualities of a Good Yoga Teacher

As you search for "yoga courses" and "psilocybin retreats near me", it is important that you look at each place's on-site experts or teaching leaders. A bad yoga teacher or psilocybin guide at psilocybin retreats near me can ruin your entire experience; turning something that was supposed to be pure and reinvigorating into something stressful and frustrating. Maybe so much so that you never want to repeat the experience.

So how do you find a good yoga teacher? Start by looking for one with the following key qualities:


  • Preparation and structure. A good yoga teacher doesn't just offer classes on a whim or change up the style whenever they want. No, good yoga teachers know that many of their pupils come to them because they need structure, they need instruction. Thus, always look for teachers and programs that offer well laid out plans when signing up and properly showcase how the course or class will go.

  • Adaptability and tailored focus. Structure is paramount but also important is having the flexibility to adapt and change things when things don't go how one plans. Also important is tailoring courses to meet individual and group needs. Look at yoga programs and yoga teachers' willingness to work with different peoples' bodies and adapt practices according to age, ability, and health conditions.

  • Authentic. This is a hard one to gauge as often you won't know if a person is truly authentic until you meet them -- and generally more than once. But if reviews are available, look for the use of the word "authentic" as yoga teachers who are authentic are those who are passionate about what they do and most excited about sharing that with others.
