The Yoga Teacher's Survival Guide

Social Justice, Science, Politics, and Power
This is a yoga book with a difference. In this guide, the authors embark on a ground-breaking exploration of the multifaceted challenges faced by yoga teachers in today's complex world. Drawing upon their experience in training yoga teachers, Theo Wildcroft and Harriet McAtee have compiled a collection of wisdom from some of the best-known and respected yoga teachers worldwide, including Peter Blackaby, Donna Farhi, Jivana Heyman, and Jules Mitchell. Through this collaboration, these experts address six key themes that resonate deeply within the yoga teaching community: critical thinking, honouring our sources, scientific enquiries, trauma, race and equity, and money and power. This book will teach yoga teachers what they need to know about honouring yoga's sources and surviving and thriving in the modern yoga industry.
