- Learn your students names! (This one is the hardest for me.)
- Give genuine compliments!
I’ve learned a lot in the 20+ years I’ve been teaching yoga, but I believe these two tips are essential! 💁♀️
Calling students by their first names makes them feel important and appreciated, and helps you make a greater connection. I confess, more than four new faces at a time sometimes throws me off the name game, but I still make the effort! 😅
Compliments — when genuine — boost self-esteem, and self-confidence. I once had a student tell me the compliments she received in the Yoga room were sometimes the only ones she’d get all week! I try to find at least one compliment for everyone in the room.
Think about how good it makes you feel when someone remembers your name or gives you a compliment! ❤️ Try these two tips in your next class and let me know if you notice the difference in how YOU feel after class! 🤗
