Occasionally you will arrive at the studio ready to take your weekly yoga class and discover, to your surprise, that a different teacher is there ready to teach your class. A natural response maybe to feel apprehension or disappointment but with a new perspective it can be viewed as an opportunity. While substitute teachers can be different than your regular teacher, they offer the student a new beginning with a new teaching voice and perhaps a slightly different approach to the same yoga. Please have every confidence that if one of your favourite teachers is away, they will have worked to find the most suitable substitute till they return. The substitute teacher will always have a strong stamp of approval from both your teacher and the studio.
