Carrie, I'm 53 and have been teaching for 17 years. Everything you mentioned is spot on and will be incredibly helpful for new teachers or those who are feeling like all the energy has been sucked out of their bodies. We tend to learn late in life that simply saying "no" can be life changing and eliminate so many problems.
I have always taken lots of continuing education, workshops and classes from other teachers which always rejuvenates. I also frequently travel with my husband and while he's working, I explore Pilates and yoga or fusion studios. My teacher told me a very long time ago that we, as teachers, cannot continue to give if we do not continuously receive. Best advice I've ever gotten.
What a wonderful presentation. Thank you so much for your honesty and insight. I know many people including myself teach up to 40 or more classes A week. Burnout is a real thing, as is not being sure what to do with your clients. I’ve been teaching for many years and I love how you are sharing your own truth. Please come back
