Teacher Feature ~ Jeanetta Irving

Jeanetta teaches Hot Flow Tuesday 5:15 a.m. Wednesday & Thursday 5:45 a.m.

 

When were you first introduced to yoga, and what got you hooked?

My neighbor in invited me to a power flow class in the Fall of 2006 - I fell in love with yoga the first class and have been practicing since.  Yoga gave me an hour to myself to breath, to move and to just be present (AND sometimes yoga was an escape from a baby that cried for 6 hours straight, sorry childcare!) 

  

What made you decide to become a yoga instructor? 

Originally I took a yoga teacher training to learn more about spinal alignment to improve my own practice.  To complete my certification, I had to instruct so many hours outside of a studio (I worked with my neighbor) which then led me to subbing and ultimately to teaching a yoga class a couple times a week. I enjoy the creativity that comes with being a yoga instructor. 

  

What’s your favorite pose? 

Any balancing pose.. they can be very humbling.  

  

How do you remain grounded outside the yoga studio? 

Remembering to take time for myself and  reminding myself that it’s okay to say NO.  

  

What does your personal practice look like these days?

Honestly, at the moment it’s only a home practice to prepare for my early a.m. classes.  With having lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, I have had to listen to what my body tells me and scale back at times. It’s okay to modify!!  AND props are your friends!! 

 

What advice do you have for the beginner yogi, other than only focus on yourself? It’s okay to modify..  and remember to breath. 

  

In your opinion what the biggest misconception about being a yoga instructor?

We have it all together... ha!  I rarely have my shit together!  

  

One healthy food you swear by, and why?

Medjool dates- low glycemic sugar replacement or sweet treat.

I think it relies upon the bearing you need to take in your article. Would you be able to give more information? The main thing that bounced to my brain was something about the quantities of educators who leave instructing in the initial five years - yet that probably won't be what you're searching for. http://www.australianessay.com/get-help-in-australia-for-essay

A yoga educator is essentially a business person, all the typical things that apply to independent ventures apply to you, with the exception of you're now and then moving your "office" or scene from rec center to exercise center as the circumstances change, or life directs. https://www.aoneassignments.com/do-my-assignment-for-me
