Episode Summary Timestamps:
5:20 - Seane discusses her message of “How dare I not?” If you have a gift you have to share it with the world. As a young yoga teacher Seane tried to talk herself out of teaching and didn’t think she would ever be ready - the thought of teaching gave her anxiety - but she ultimately didn’t let her insecurities stand in her way. Seane said, “I didn’t know I was gonna be a good teacher. But I knew I could do this. I just had to do it differently.”
18:22 - Seane talks about how she manages public speaking despite a battle with vertigo. When faced with a lecture that she was nervous to give, she realized it would be selfish of her to not take an opportunity to help people.
34:03 - How Seane became confident on her latest journey: her book tour. Seane sought out help to be the best she could reading her book in front of others (and a special guest appearance from Seane’s dog!) She also talks about the challenge of writing a book, which she said is very different from teaching yoga.
49:38 - WILD CARD: A quick dive into Bryan’s hair envy of Seane!
52:23 - How new teachers can find their authentic voice. It may take longer than you expect but it comes with time and practice. Plus, Seane shares her recipe for a perfect class.
