What To Expect From A Yoga Teacher Training Course

Becoming a yoga teacher can be the perfect career change for those who are looking to switch things up a bit. Being a yoga teacher gives you freedom, autonomy over your working hours and the chance to do something you love, whilst also helping others and earning a living.

But, before you become a qualified yoga teacher, you will have to complete a yoga teacher training course. A yoga teacher training course has the potential to change your life, from the way you earn money to the way you feel about yourself and see the world. Below we’ve answered some questions that may be on your mind if you are thinking of enrolling in a yoga teacher training course

How experienced do you need to be?

Let us start by reassuring you, you do not need to be at a certain level to enrol on a yoga teacher training course. Some experience of yoga will help, but it is not essential, and you definitely don’t need to be able to do headstands or handstands in advance! The most important thing is that you have a keen interest in, and a commitment to, yoga practice. This is the only foundation you need..

If you want to prepare for your yoga teacher training course, you can always take a foundation course first. You might want to look for one that is guided by the same teacher you want to train under, as this will give you a chance to get to know their style.

What will you learn on a yoga teacher training course?

Naturally, this will depend on the course you select, as well as how much energy and attention you put into the training. As a general guide, you will learn an understanding of how to self practice, you will learn about neurology and anatomy and you will also gain an in-depth understanding of the philosophy behind yoga. On top of this, you will also receive guidance on the teaching aspect, for example, how to structure classes and how to help your students.

Who is yoga teacher training for?

Anyone can become a yoga teacher, as long as they are dedicated to helping others practise in safe and welcoming environments. As a yoga teacher you don’t need to hold difficult poses or remember complex sequences. In fact, most of your students will be looking for assistance moving with ease, breathing and de-stressing. The most important thing is an aptitude for teaching. You need to see what’s needed in our class, by your students, and you need to be able to meet their needs with compassion and understanding.
