  • The Path Leads Inward – Why I Love Teaching Yoga Teachers by Suzanne Mariska

    Suzanne teaching YTT

    "When the program was over, I was on my own with my newly earned certificate (and very green teaching skills).  Teaching a class on my own was a sink or swim situation, and I did a lot of sinking as I tried to figure out how to actually apply what I had learned without any guidance.   Fortunately, I was determined enough to keep venturing into the water. I started teaching at Cambio in 2009, and here I received an amazing level of support and mentorship from many people in this teaching community.  I honed my skills in sequencing, adjusting, language, and I over time I learned to teach with confidence and grace."

    Extended YTT Co-Coordinator and Senior Teacher, Suzanne Mariska shares her experience in becoming a yoga teacher and how it inspires her in leading incoming trainees as they take their first steps on this journey. Continue reading Suzanne's unique experiences and this practice that leads you inward.
