In Part Two of this frank, emotionally honest and real conversation, Awakened Heart, Embodied Mind teacher trainers Jay Fields & Julian Walker discuss how perfectionism, insecurity and unrealistic expectations are part of what aspiring and new yoga teachers go through…

Jay shares her personal story as a new, young teacher —and the discussion turns to the idea of “becoming a good friend” to yourself, through truly being present, and how this is the greatest gift we have to give our students.

The conversation touches on the unrealistic expectations of spiritual bypass and what the real “inner workings” of a very human, grounded inner work process of growth and transformation entails instead.
