Smart, authentic bios are essential for any yoga teacher. They serve as a mini resume, highlighting our credentials and informing potential students about our mission statement and style of teaching. Biographies are used on your personal postcards, flyers and website. The studio or gym you teach at may also ask for your bio to include on their website. Remember that often all a student has, in order to decide whether or not they want to take your class, is your personal story: your biography. It is important that you feel empowered by how you tell that story.
I also understand that for many of us it is not easy to write about oneself. Do you write in first person or third person? What do you include, and how much is too much?
Try taking these steps to write your best biography. Most of all, honor yourself in what you write. By doing so, you honor and elevate the profession of yoga!

- Write out your personal mission statement.
- Write out your teaching intention: why do you teach?
- Write out your vision statement.
- Write out what yoga means to you.
