The Psychology of Becoming a Teacher

The Psychology of Becoming a Teacher

Most people think of the ancient practice of yoga as a purely physical one, but anyone who has maintained a deep practice for any length of time knows that the practice is even more intense on the psychological and emotional level.  In this podcast psychologist Marc Rappaport, MFT talks about the experience of becoming a yoga teacher and the profound yet intense psychological and emotional cleansing that so often occurs as a result of such rigorous training.
