 當大師都這麼說了,怎能不謹記在心?

 

1. To be a good teacher you must be eager, humble, inquisitive student.

唯有懷著熱心,謙虛,好學的態度你才將成為一位好老師。

2. Teaching is rendering service. It is much like parenting.
教學是種給予與付出,正如對子女的養育般。

3. Prepare students so that they have good listening skills. They must learn to lay aside their presuppositions and ways of doing things. Genuine yoga begins when students have respect, desire and are completely present. The transmission is one of relationship. Of course the teacher has had this attitude in relation to their teachers. Students must have this attitude even if other students are teaching. Otherwise, without humility and respect, yoga becomes a farce.
讓學生準備好具有擅長聆聽的能力。他們須學習放下一切預想與一慣作風。唯有當學生懷著尊敬,學習的意念,以及完全專注於當下時,真正的瑜珈才開始。傳達是種關係。當然,身為老師的一路走過來也對他們的老師抱著這樣的心態。儘管當其同學在教學時亦應持有如此的態度。否則,缺少了謙虛與尊敬,瑜珈將變成件滑稽荒唐的事。

4. Just attitude and eager respect can suspend citta vritti. It is not hard. It is not easy. If someone you love is there, you don’t even need technique.
僅僅正確的態度和尊敬便能終止千種的心靈傾向。這其實並不難,卻亦不易。當事情有關你所愛的人時,你便不需任何技巧去面對。


5. Be truly helpful. Do not try to impress. Do not show off.
讓自己真正能利於他人。別只是為了讓人印象深刻,更勿炫耀。

6. Don’t be self righteous. Don’t lay a “trip” on the student.
勿視己為道德規範,別將任何失誤歸於學生。

7. Do not be seductive and flirtatious with students. And do not respond to seductive and flirtatious students.
勿以個人魅力與賣俏來和學生建立關係,對於此類的學生亦勿響應。

8. Beware using flattery or ego empowering techniques. They might be useful as a skill-full means with certain students on rare occasions, yet they easily backfire. Puffing up the egos of neophyte students and teachers is the business of cults and extends the power of the teacher irresistibly.
提防以諂媚或用純粹滿足自我的手段。在極少的情況下對某些學生這也許是個精巧的工具,然而往往更是造成事與願違。

9. It can take many years of yoga study before one is burning with intensity to know the truth.
也許經過了多年的瑜珈學習後人才會恍然大悟

10. Allow the student to discover the internal and full action of a pose.
期許學生去發覺體位法的本質及所有細節

11. Be kind and patient. That person is you.
富於同理心與耐心。你正是這樣的人。

12. Look at the whole pose. Breathe the pose.
期許自己看見體位法的全部,如呼吸般的合為一體。

13. Know the vinyasa of the pose. Not only what poses might proceed or follow the pose, but what sequences of movement occur within the pose as it matures.
瞭瞭解體位法的串連性;不僅對接下來的動作,而是知悉隨著每個體位法的熟練所產生的變遷。

14. Get feedback. Find out if the message got through for real. Students are always reluctant to disappoint an insecure teacher.
取得回饋。查明消息的真相。學生往往不忍心讓沒有安全感的老師失望(以致於不告知其真相)。

15. Watch the student’s feet, hands, face, breath, eyes, lips and overall action.
觀察學生的腳,手,臉部表情,呼吸,眼神,嘴唇,及整體動向。

16. Look before you leap. Don’t be cavalier and arrogant by fixing what is not broken.
三思而後行;勿慢不經心,傲慢的著手而做不必要(多餘)的調整。

17. Respect space and internal process of yoga students. Invading someone’s sacred space can be offensive and violent.
尊重並保留學生在瑜珈學習上的個人空間與內在成長過程。侵擾他人此神聖的空間是件唐突而暴力的事。

18. Teaching is constant mindfulness practice in thought, word and posture.
教學是種以警覺而持續不變的思緒,言語及體位法的練習。

19. Always practice refined alignment in your own body as you adjust another.
在你調整他人的同時也一再練習將你的體姿精確化。

20. Teach directly out of your own experience, in the moment. Don’t be afraid to say, “I don’t know”. Know when to refer problems to someone with more experience.
誠懇的以你目前的親身經驗來教學。別害怕說我不知道。必須清楚瞭解何時該將問題提交給更有經驗的人。

21. Beware of flattery. Do not praise yourself. Be satisfied being a servant of a servant.
提防諂媚;別自誇。知足於成為僕人的僕人。

22. Practice asana as mudra. Practice and teach Bhava or ecstatic feeling rather than technique.
將體位法視為身印(一種具有內在意義與理念的姿勢)。練習並教導心念,意向(Bhava)而不僅是技巧。

23. Teach what you know. Do not teach what you don’t know.
教導你所知悉的,勿教導你所不知的。

24. The yoga does the healing, do not become the healer.
一切療法源自於瑜珈(練習),勿視己為治療者。

25. Teach what is appropriate for the student. Don’t teach your own practice.
教導學生所需,所適合的而非教導你的練習。
