Do you meditate regularly? Do you love the feeling of inner peace and contentment that comes when you practice? If your enthusiasm is growing steadily, then, why not teach meditation classes? Share your passion with others.
What do you need to teach meditation classes?
Although there are courses that you can take to teach meditation, the most important element is being able to understand the many benefits that meditation brings. You also need to have a natural enthusiasm for meditation and be able to connect with other people so to help them achieve a deep sense of inner peace and well-being too. Before you rush in to set up these sessions, do check in your local area as to whether you need a background check or license so to teach classes.
Create your own meditation scripts
Having unique meditation scripts is an important part of teaching at meditation classes. There has to be a variety of scripts so to keep attendees fully engaged. Therefore, create highly visual scripts that open the mind and evoke a sense of wonder. As a result, your students will follow the guided story as you lead them towards a peaceful conclusion.
Your scripts may include a woodland scene, a walk along a meandering river or, perhaps, effortlessly reaching the plateau of a beautiful mountain scene. You can design scripts to be healing too. Perhaps your class would like to reconnect with their inner child or, forgive themselves for past mistakes. Maybe healing from a broken heart or even a mindfulness meditation could be useful. You need to cater for everyone.
Perfect a calming voice
You need to perfect the way you speak to those who sign up for your class. Your voice must be soothing, it must not distract from the visual journey they are about to take. If it does, they will disconnect from the session and feel frustrated and that’s the last thing you want. Practice makes perfect.
Are you a people person?
Having a love of meditation may not be enough. You must be a people person too. It’s not always easy managing a meditation class. You will have a variety of people attend all with varying levels of stress or difficult experiences. Although you are not counselling people, understand that you must be able to connect with them. They may wish to open up and talk about why they are there. In conclusion, feeling confident in front of people is a must. This is a vital part of making your meditation classes successful. Remember, this isn’t just a job, it must be a passion.
