Many teachers are never taught specifically how to develop a confident presence with the voice and use high-level communication skills to present not just movements…but meaning. These are skills we must learn, just like anything else in our practice. Most of us need additional work on our speaking skills.

If this is something we’ve never examined, then we have a tremendous amount to gain by taking a look at how we use our words to deliver the teachings that come from our heart.

In this podcast. Alanna teaches her most powerful and important speaking and cueing techniques that elevate you from good to great as a yoga instructor, and help you establish the kind of expertise necessary to differentiate yourself from the crowd.

Guided Gratitude Meditation!

At this time of division–whether it be the division between us personally, politically, globally, or socially–how do we begin to back out of separation and into connection? How do we let go of our judgments of others, or an us vs. them attitude, or forgive those who have wronged us?

We begin with gratitude. Gratitude alleviates fear. It dissolves painful emotion. It evolves negative thought. It reverses false belief systems. Gratitude is a miracle worker, and you can let it work for you.

This special edition of the Upward Facing Career Podcast features a guided gratitude meditation to elevate our hearts and souls and remind us of what is most important in life...each other.
