I can not say I ever helped people understand how to be wonderful Yoga teachers until a couple of years ago. After years of learning about the variety of advantages yoga has for the body, mind, and soul, I thought I would give it with a shot. I felt in love instantly!
Having begun my teacher training, I have noticed many things about becoming a wonderful yoga teacher that I was not aware of before beginning my training.
For those of you who are mincing around the idea of becoming a qualified Yoga teacher, it can be challenging to look through the many YTTs offered. Before you register, spend some time exploring these tips:
Do the Analysis. Get a mentor and a qualified teacher training studio. First, I wanted to register in an institution that sounded exotic and was ensuring a deep transformation in spiritual growing along with a 200-hour accreditation. After looking at immersion schools and other exotic locales, I made the decision to meet some restructured instructors in my place to see where they got their encounter. The problem was to understand about the relationship between the yoga school and its instructors. Yoga has such strong, strong and scrupulous roots. Ask who trained your instructor, who trained your instructor's instructor, and so on. Having this knowledge (and knowing whether these are good yoga teachers) makes you especially that much more efficient as an educated yoga teacher.
BE CAREFUL! Yoga has become so popular in the past several years but regretably, for all the bad reasons. Yoga today is seen as a workout and is frequently clumped with the new hot training routines. Because of this latest increase, yoga studios that offer “teacher training” have also been popping up all over the world. I believe that yoga is not a “workout approach” but rather a way of life.
Be Genuine. When looking for a yoga school, you should also be aware of the studio's reaching approach and whether or not it will work for you. It is important to get a program outline and also to become acquainted with what the studio needs from their instructors in the training. Learn about the course specifications and if it will go well with the personal schedule. If you already have a busy schedule with work, children, and other obligations, choosing a rigorous 4 or 7 days program where you eat, rest, and breathe yoga may not be a course for you.
Be Willing to Learn. Once you have found the program that works best for you, open yourself to leaving everything that you will encounter! A yoga training course is a jam full of information. Requiring you to know all sort of new things and also mastering your own exercise which can be mind-boggling. Just know that if there is a desire to learn you will be fine! Yes, there is a lot of information. Yes, when you start your training, you will find out that you thought you knew a lot more than you actually do. However, with willingness determination and the right mentor, you will come out of your yoga training a well-rounded, well-organized, and a knowledgeable teacher!
Dedication. I have kept this point for last. It is one of the clearest points but often one of the most overlooked. Dedication to your yoga teaching does not merely mean completing your assignment on time and completely (although you will definitely need to do this!). Dedication means you live your yoga on and off the mat. Yoga is not something you just do, it is something you will want to completely involve yourself in, this is how you will get the most out of this wonderful experience!
Yoga is an outstanding exercise and Yoga from the Heart's teacher training program has bestowed even more yoga knowledge than I could have ever dreamed! If you are considering of becoming a qualified yoga teacher, do not wait again, just do it!
