On our journey to becoming extraordinary yoga teachers and spiritual leaders, we often receive feedback and support on how to grow and become better. Whether it be via tests, video uploads, or one-on-one coaching, the ability to take feedback and use it for growth, rather than as an obstacle is critical. Alyssa Arroyo, lead mentor on The Kaivalya Yoga Method Academy online teacher training, shares with us unique ways to grow and change as a spiritual leader -- and human! -- in the midst of challenge.
