With all of the turmoil and change out there in the world right now, have you wondered if it’s time for a new passion? You might be one of many people who have lately begun to look inwards and reassess your life. Children’s yoga and mindfulness is a career that brings joy and passion to teachers worldwide. Might it be right for you too? Here are five signs that you may need a new passion.
You’ve been doing the same job a long time and need a spark.
The sense of excitement and fulfillment that we feel from a job, or even a larger career path, can wear off over time. We can question if it’s time for something new -- after all, that “fire” for our work can be essential for showing up everyday, putting in 110%, and truly making a difference.

2. You’re lacking a sense or purpose or passion.
Ever noticed that you’re “going through the motions,” your focus on the mundane and everyday -- rather than on a larger vision for yourself, your community, or the world? That can feel gray, dull, and monotonous. It’s not the most enjoyable way to live, to say in the least!
3. You want to make an impact that you can see.
Humans naturally have an altruistic impulse -- in other words, we want to improve the lives of other beings. In some professions, it can be hard to see the tangible impact of our hard work. We know that it feels good to see people smile and confirm for us that we’ve been helpful for them -- what if that feeling was part of your workday, day in and day out?

4. You need a creative outlet.
Humans also have a natural creative impulse. We like to create things that express and is informed by who we are and what we’ve experienced. When we’re in a job that doesn’t offer creative opportunities, that part of us lies dormant -- and we can feel like there’s something missing, maybe something we can’t quite put our finger on.
5.You love yoga!
Maybe you go to a yoga class every so often and wish it could bemoreoften. Maybe you’re a hardcore yogi in the studio most days of the week. Either way, you know that yoga lights you up and helps to heal what ails you. What if the practice could be part of your everyday work, and you could bepaid for sharing something that you love?
Through teaching kids yoga and mindfulness, it can be and you can be! Could that be right for you? We at Flow and Grow Kids Yoga think it truly might be!
