Self Inquiry-Based Yoga Instruction

Inquiry-Based Teaching vs. Authority-Based Teaching

Plenty of well meaning teachers fail to understand the difference between inquiry-based instruction and authority-based instruction. Instead of taking a backseat and letting student’s determine their own course of education, they steal the wheel, pushing students into the backseat themselves, where in essence they’re told to “sit down, watch and learn.” When a teacher interrupts this natural learning process, students are forced to engage in someone else’s adventure, one no longer of their choosing. Either way, over time their interest is lost and with it, their desire to learn, develop, grow, and evolve.
