This is a yoga book with a difference. In this guide, the authors embark on a ground-breaking exploration of the multifaceted challenges faced by yoga teachers in today's complex world.

Drawing upon their experience in training yoga teachers, Theo Wildcroft and Harriet McAtee have compiled a collection of wisdom from some of the best-known and respected yoga teachers worldwide, including Peter Blackaby, Donna Farhi, Jivana Heyman, and Jules Mitchell. Through this collaboration, these experts address six key themes that resonate deeply within the yoga teaching community: critical thinking, honouring our sources, scientific enquiries, trauma, race and equity, and money and power. This book will teach yoga teachers what they need to know about honouring yoga's sources and surviving and thriving in the modern yoga industry.

Press Reviews

  • Amy Wheeler, Ph.D. Former Board President of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (2018-2020)

    The Yoga Teacher's Survival Guide shines in its capacity to engage in critical thinking and question the established norms within the yoga profession. The authors' dedication to scrutinizing these issues is admirable, prompting readers to re-evaluate their own perceptions and practices. The book's critique serves as a stark reminder that no field is without its flaws, and it compels us to address these shortcomings for the betterment of yoga as a whole.
  • Jess Glenny, elder yoga teacher, registered yoga therapist, writer

    Exhausted by daily engagement with the web of contradictions woven around post-modern yoga? Lost in the in the abysmal crack between the wellness industry and authentic yoga teaching? Alienated by the beach-and-bikini yoga lifestyle portrayed on social media? Then this is the book for you!
  • John Stirk, author of The Original Body Primal Movement for yoga Teachers and Deeper Still Authentic Embodiment for Yoga Teachers

    Incisive, revealing, uncompromising and poignant. A much needed factual and personal spotlight on the reality of teaching modern yoga.
  • Suzanne Newcombe, author of Yoga in Britain: Stretching Spirituality and Educating Yogis (Equinox 2019) and co-editor with Karen O’Brien-Kop of the Routledge Handbook of Yoga and Meditation Studies (2021)

    An outstanding practical intervention that directly explores the painful paradoxes of teaching yoga. This book offers valuable questions, wise reflections and suggestions based on personal experience. Above all, it offers hope. It is grounded in, but not stifled by, the latest academic research on yoga.
