1. Share a part of yourself in class. Be real, and make yourself relatable. I encourage all my teacher trainers to reference themselves in class just like they would a statistic about back pain. This makes you the instructor more real and relatable. I often talk about how I have a cranky psoas that I am working on, or as I explain what we are about to do I note that this is the side I have to work on more because balance is challenging for me. A good teacher teaches on the same level as his or her students not above them.
