Yoga has been around for more than 5000 years, some people say even 10000 years, there's so much to learn, so many aspect of the yoga to cover, set up yourself to take the most of it by being acquainted with the teacher, teaching style and the background.
Does the yoga style excites you and makes you feel amazingly good?
There are so many different yoga styles to choose from, not every style is for everyone. The way to find yours is by giving it a try, not just one class but attend a few classes, maybe the same style taught by different teachers and you’ll find the style that brings you alive, that makes you feel amazing every time and that you could do it every day, all the time, non stop.
How much practice teaching will you do? Teaching “real” students?
There are invaluable learnings when you stand in front of a class, students looking at you waiting to be guided and trusting on you. Being put in the spot light arises huge transformations that could be just the thing that it is stoping you or is dragging you down in your life. It is immensely valuable to have experience teaching so that when you finish your training you are confident to go out to take covers, teaching opportunities in studios or even to set up on your classes.
This is a photo of one of the many community classes taught by our graduates. By the time they finish the training they had quite a few classes taught under their belt, applied learnings to support the students, do hands on assist, learn how to set up a class and how to welcome students.
What support is available before, during and after the training?
Many of us have felt some sort of transformation, shifts or feelings that yoga has changed something is ourselves. Yoga is a journey to self-realisation, a journey of connecting to our inner power that has been hiding or been bared. Before we can call ourselves yoga teachers we have be comfortable with being a student, because the learnings come from our own self. This requires guidance form the TT teacher or facilitators, requires unlimited support that should not end at the end of the TT, because your journey of self-realisation will continue after the TT, and it is good that it does.
What will you be learning?
Lets take the example of the most common yoga style taught nowadays, vinyasa and hatha. Many students attend these yoga classes for the physical benefits, to overcome general tightness, back pain, recover or prevent injuries, and so much more. Learning anatomy in an integrated and experiential way it is a must to give you the skills and knowledge to support your students in the best way possible. If you’ll learn about Yoga Philosophy how much will actually be integrated learning that you can apply to your life or to your teaching.
