Mental Health as a Yoga Teacher
Following the last Community Update, thank you so much to those of you who shared what yoga means to you and also reflected on how your chosen vocations nourish your mind, hearts and souls. Your sharing’s were beautiful to read.
In the hope that sharing my own experiences and story can in turn offer you hope and support, I have loosened up about my own struggles with anxiety and panic attacks since the age of 10 on Untangled The Podcast. I am a huge supporter of this Podcast and if mental health is an area close to your heart, I encourage you to give them your time via a listen to this episode, review and subscribe.
There is a lot of stigma for yoga teachers around mental health with the usual attitude I’ve faced being “But you’re a yoga teacher… doesn’t that mean you’ve got all this mind mental health stuff completely together?!”
The truth is, most yoga teachers are in this industry because they battle and face their own demons around mental health in some form or another. We have chosen to share a sacred and healthy practice that has saved our lives or dramatically enhanced our wellbeing, in the hope that it will offer you the same healthy outlet vs numbing out with stimulants.
For those of you suffering with anxiety and panic attacks please know this:
1. You’re not weird
2. You’re not abnormal
3. You’re never ever alone.
Here is my Anxiety Self-Help Toolkit for extra resource. I invite you to take a look even if you think you don’t suffer with anxiety. Often we experience physical symptoms of stress and anxiety but put it down to something else.
Please share this with your loved ones you know are suffering.
