Career Video on Teaching Yoga

In a video, Shobhna Juneja has talked about various aspects of a Career in Teaching Yoga. Shobhna Juneja started by explaining Teaching Yoga as: "Teaching yoga, like the name suggests, is the way your teachers teaches you, but it is more related to the health of the people these days. When I teach people during the day it is not basically explaining some subject, but teaching them art of leaving and art of being healthy, happier, distressed and at the same time you being more happy, healthy and distressed as the teacher, so it is a two way program as a teacher you are healthy yourself and you making people healthy too." The video gave me so much food for thought.
