What Makes a Real & Authentic Yoga Teacher?

What Makes a Real and Authentic Yoga Teacher?

By: Silvia Mordini, featured on DoYouYoga.com

A recent NY Post article calls out some of the worst case scenarios in how humans teach yoga. On the one hand, we could simply disregard the article for being snarky and provocative. But on the other hand, there was some truth there too.   Too often, and more and more over the last twenty years, yoga teachers with great intentions are parroting misinformation about the practice to students.   This mimicry stage might at first be necessary for initial growth, but soon after, individuation must take place whereby the teacher actually knows why they are saying the things they say.

Here’s the Truth Not all yoga teachers are the same. Not all yoga schools are created equally, even if they are Yoga Alliance approved. Not all Yoga Alliance-certified yoga teachers have the foundational knowledge to be leading others in a practice that is physical, emotional and spiritual (whether you want it to be or not).

Alchemy of Love Sunrise to Sunset in Baja

You come to us from another world;
From beyond the stars and a void of space
Transcendent, pure – of unimaginable beauty.
Bringing with You the essence of Love.
You transform all who are touched by You –
Mundane concerns, troubles and sorrows dissolve in Your presence
Bringing joy to ruler & ruled, to peasants and kings.
You bewilder us with Your grace;
All evil is transformed into goodness.
You are the Master Alchemist!
You light the fire of Love in earth & sky,
In heart & soul of every being.
Through Your loving, existence & non-existence merge –
All opposites unite –
All that is profane becomes sacred again.

~Rumi

Green Retreat Center: Prana Del Mar

A few simple steps can go a long way to make a retreat center environmentally responsible. Housing hundreds of guests a year comfortably takes many resources and materials. 

  • All of our electricity comes from solar panels installed throughout the property
  • Our pool is solar heated
  • The floors of our yoga studios are strand-woven bamboo
  • Our waste water is treated on-site and reused to irrigate the gardens
  • We included skylights in our design to increase natural lighting
  • All light fixtures and appliances were chosen with energy efficiency in mind
  • Organic sheets, bath towels, and bath mats
  • Rather than washing linens and towels every day, we allow guests the option to reuse linens to reduce water usage
  • We use cloth hand towels and napkins instead of paper
  • Our garden is organic – no pesticides or herbicides
  • We compost excess food and organic materials and use them as fertilizer
  • Aerated showerheads for great water pressure at low flow rates & low-flow toilets
  • We provide organic personal care products – shampoo, conditioner, cleaners, and lotions – all purchased in bulk and supplied in dispensers to reduce single-use containers
  • We utilize green cleaning products
  • We recycle wherever possible and use primarily rechargeable batteries
  • We offer purified drinking water and give every guest a refillable bottle to reduce wasting single-use plastic bottles
  • If you purchase carbon offsets for your plane flight, we’ll credit you that amount (up to $50 USD) toward any massage, spa service, surf lesson, or other excursion

We purposefully choose retreat centers that commit to treading lightly on the incredible landscapes where they reside. Decreasing your waste and consuming less without compromising luxury takes planning and passion for the earth. We appreciate every business we work with’s commitment to the planet!
