If you're like a lot of yoga students, you probably feel a bit conflicted when it comes to social media: You want to spend more time in the present moment, but you also love how social media makes you feel connected with the people you love and what's going on in the world. It can be so hard to find a balance that allows you to enjoy the best social media has to offer without feeling like a slave to technology.
In this episode of Yogaland, Jason and I share some practical tips on using social media both as consumers and as yoga teachers (who need to use it as a marketing tool and as a way to connect to their students).
We talk about:
* How to stop comparing yourself to the edited highlight reel you see of others' lives on social media
* Creating healthy boundaries around how and when you use social media
* What yoga teachers can do to stay authentic on social media and use it to nurture the relationships they have with their students
