Best Yoga Teachers in the World – Alexandria Crow

00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:20,480
I think everybody should practice yoga

2
00:00:20,480 –> 00:00:24,029
because in our society right now it’s so

3
00:00:24,029 –> 00:00:26,460
difficult to shut up there’s no quiet

4
00:00:26,460 –> 00:00:29,970
there’s no silence no space between so

5
00:00:29,970 –> 00:00:32,270
that I can actually hear my own thoughts

6
00:00:32,270 –> 00:00:35,520
so to get onto the yoga mat to put your

7
00:00:35,520 –> 00:00:37,320
mind on what your body’s doing for once

8
00:00:37,320 –> 00:00:39,059
and to let all the other stuff drop away

9
00:00:39,059 –> 00:00:41,250
you absolutely have no choice but to be

10
00:00:41,250 –> 00:00:44,070
very present and that is so unique that

11
00:00:44,070 –> 00:00:47,129
little tiny bit of quiet that that you

12
00:00:47,129 –> 00:00:49,350
get from your yoga practice can be truly

13
00:00:49,350 –> 00:00:51,750
transformational and once that happens

14
00:00:51,750 –> 00:00:53,940
you know the road is endless you can

15
00:00:53,940 –> 00:00:55,680
keep going and it can really change your

16
00:00:55,680 –> 00:01:00,030
life so it can be very simple very kind

17
00:01:00,030 –> 00:01:02,359
of easy at the beginning and

18
00:01:02,359 –> 00:01:04,890
approachable and then from that you can

19
00:01:04,890 –> 00:01:06,960
incorporate it into your life to ended

20
00:01:06,960 –> 00:01:09,110
up

21
00:01:12,609 –> 00:01:20,210
um I keep practicing because I can’t I I

22
00:01:20,210 –> 00:01:22,909
can’t not practice I have to I don’t

23
00:01:22,909 –> 00:01:27,229
have a choice in the matter I have tried

24
00:01:27,229 –> 00:01:29,689
to live my life without practicing yoga

25
00:01:29,689 –> 00:01:32,209
and things become so chaotic game inside

26
00:01:32,209 –> 00:01:33,770
my head that this is the only physical

27
00:01:33,770 –> 00:01:36,229
activity I know how to do but beyond

28
00:01:36,229 –> 00:01:37,609
that it’s the only way I know how to

29
00:01:37,609 –> 00:01:38,630
keep myself for it

30
00:01:38,630 –> 00:01:41,299
how to not get so attached to the

31
00:01:41,299 –> 00:01:43,069
running of my mind

32
00:01:43,069 –> 00:01:45,649
and so it’s fundamental to just being

33
00:01:45,649 –> 00:01:49,250
happy and healthy for me I’ve seen the

34
00:01:49,250 –> 00:01:50,689
other side and I know that this is

35
00:01:50,689 –> 00:01:52,759
better so that’s what keeps me getting

36
00:01:52,759 –> 00:01:55,039
back on that it’s far beyond the both of

37
00:01:55,039 –> 00:01:57,590
at this point it’s it’s more the only

38
00:01:57,590 –> 00:02:07,129
thing that keeps me sane I used to work

39
00:02:07,129 –> 00:02:09,799
in the fashion industry I worked in all

40
00:02:09,799 –> 00:02:11,780
aspects of it I thought it was going to

41
00:02:11,780 –> 00:02:14,150
be my dream come true I’m wearing you

42
00:02:14,150 –> 00:02:15,829
can’t see right now but I’m wearing some

43
00:02:15,829 –> 00:02:18,319
leopard pants and it’s very much a part

44
00:02:18,319 –> 00:02:19,670
of who I am and I thought it was going

45
00:02:19,670 –> 00:02:22,519
to be the be-all and end-all it ended up

46
00:02:22,519 –> 00:02:24,349
not being that way and ended up actually

47
00:02:24,349 –> 00:02:27,230
making me feel pretty negative about

48
00:02:27,230 –> 00:02:30,010
myself and kind of about this

49
00:02:30,010 –> 00:02:32,080
general I have this huge background as a

50
00:02:32,080 –> 00:02:34,750
gymnast and a huge background with

51
00:02:34,750 –> 00:02:37,060
coaching and using my body and I was

52
00:02:37,060 –> 00:02:39,670
practicing yoga at the time and I knew

53
00:02:39,670 –> 00:02:41,950
that there was something about my yoga

54
00:02:41,950 –> 00:02:44,200
teachers and about moving my body in

55
00:02:44,200 –> 00:02:46,510
that way and doing the practice that was

56
00:02:46,510 –> 00:02:48,489
really powerful and I felt like if I

57
00:02:48,489 –> 00:02:50,200
could just understand it a little bit

58
00:02:50,200 –> 00:02:52,840
better I would something would change

59
00:02:52,840 –> 00:02:56,019
something would shift so I had friend

60
00:02:56,019 –> 00:02:57,190
had gone through a teacher training

61
00:02:57,190 –> 00:02:58,540
program and he said why don’t you just

62
00:02:58,540 –> 00:03:02,019
try it just go and so I did I signed up

63
00:03:02,019 –> 00:03:03,640
with absolutely no aspirations of

64
00:03:03,640 –> 00:03:06,190
becoming a teacher necessarily but just

65
00:03:06,190 –> 00:03:08,019
as a way to kind of see what was out

66
00:03:08,019 –> 00:03:10,239
there I fell in love with not just the

67
00:03:10,239 –> 00:03:12,639
practice but what I did for other people

68
00:03:12,639 –> 00:03:16,090
and what I could give them from that so

69
00:03:16,090 –> 00:03:19,480
I finished the program and kind of at

70
00:03:19,480 –> 00:03:21,250
the end of the story I ran full force

71
00:03:21,250 –> 00:03:23,970
with it and at the end of the day now

72
00:03:23,970 –> 00:03:26,970
even if it’s something so simple as

73
00:03:26,970 –> 00:03:28,930
telling a joke in the middle of class

74
00:03:28,930 –> 00:03:31,299
and making one person laugh I did

75
00:03:31,299 –> 00:03:33,099
something to make somebody’s day better

76
00:03:33,099 –> 00:03:34,940
with my job and I

77
00:03:34,940 –> 00:03:39,410
it’s the key to being happy absolutely

78
00:03:39,410 –> 00:03:47,840
fundamental if I have to remind myself

79
00:03:47,840 –> 00:03:49,910
something over and over and over again

80
00:03:49,910 –> 00:03:53,510
as a teacher especially a little longer

81
00:03:53,510 –> 00:03:56,180
I teach the more this is kind of will

82
00:03:56,180 –> 00:03:58,940
probably come up is that for me yoga

83
00:03:58,940 –> 00:04:01,520
such a way of life I remember coming

84
00:04:01,520 –> 00:04:02,870
into my first class I said this

85
00:04:02,870 –> 00:04:05,000
yesterday and sitting down and not even

86
00:04:05,000 –> 00:04:06,980
knowing if while I was waiting for the

87
00:04:06,980 –> 00:04:08,810
class if I was sitting there waiting

88
00:04:08,810 –> 00:04:10,370
correctly I thought it might be even

89
00:04:10,370 –> 00:04:14,060
doing that wrong so it’s very easy as a

90
00:04:14,060 –> 00:04:16,329
teacher I think to become a little bit

91
00:04:16,329 –> 00:04:18,950
jaded by the experience and to be so

92
00:04:18,950 –> 00:04:20,600
accepting of it that you don’t

93
00:04:20,600 –> 00:04:24,020
understand the newbies perspective and

94
00:04:24,020 –> 00:04:25,610
so I’d like to guess

95
00:04:25,610 –> 00:04:28,909
myself that it can be a scary experience

96
00:04:28,909 –> 00:04:32,030
than to be very accepting of people so

97
00:04:32,030 –> 00:04:33,770
that they will get back on to their yoga

98
00:04:33,770 –> 00:04:35,449
mat there was a teacher in all of our

99
00:04:35,449 –> 00:04:39,740
lives who helped us understand that we

100
00:04:39,740 –> 00:04:41,210
could be a part of this community and be

101
00:04:41,210 –> 00:04:43,599
part of this practice and so I strive to

102
00:04:43,599 –> 00:04:46,460
make that the case for every student

103
00:04:46,460 –> 00:04:49,500
that comes into my room so I guess all

104
00:04:49,500 –> 00:04:59,070
I love your ganache ah I had a little

105
00:04:59,070 –> 00:05:01,080
bit of knowledge coming in here I’ve had

106
00:05:01,080 –> 00:05:02,700
a number of friends who’ve taught here

107
00:05:02,700 –> 00:05:04,980
as well so they gave me a little bit of

108
00:05:04,980 –> 00:05:07,020
a background so I really didn’t know

109
00:05:07,020 –> 00:05:09,450
what to expect I have to say that I was

110
00:05:09,450 –> 00:05:13,260
incredibly impressed with not just the

111
00:05:13,260 –> 00:05:15,780
students but also all of the faculty and

112
00:05:15,780 –> 00:05:17,550
all of the owners of the studio it’s

113
00:05:17,550 –> 00:05:19,350
been an absolutely amazing experience

114
00:05:19,350 –> 00:05:21,680
it’s they’re incredibly professional

115
00:05:21,680 –> 00:05:24,270
they know their stuff they work really

116
00:05:24,270 –> 00:05:27,270
hard to bring in really great teachers

117
00:05:27,270 –> 00:05:28,850
as well as expand their knowledge

118
00:05:28,850 –> 00:05:31,680
constantly and the students are some of

119
00:05:31,680 –> 00:05:33,270
the most receptive students I’ve ever

120
00:05:33,270 –> 00:05:36,180
taught in my life they have some of the

121
00:05:36,180 –> 00:05:37,330
most amazing line

122
00:05:37,330 –> 00:00:00,000
and I’ve seen alignment a diversity
