Should you take a teacher training to deepen your practice?

How much can you afford to spend? Teacher trainings are an expensive investment into your own practice and the practice you are going to help others discover. Decide up front how much you can comfortably spend and whether you are willing to look into financing options if you find the training of your dreams, then discover it is a little out of your price range. Many trainings offer payment plans, work study options or even scholarships.

What type of time commitment is ideal for you? Perhaps you have a flexible schedule and can commit a month or more to a full-time immersion program where you meet and train every day. On the other hand, if you work full-time than a six to nine month training that meets on the weekends may be more realistic for you. It is also important to take into consideration that there will be a good amount of homework required outside of the contact training hours.

Making yoga teaching your career

Look after yourself. Yoga teacher training courses are very much a mixture of physical practice and plenty of sitting. When you’re bringing your body from a sitting position to a yoga posture, be mindful and kind; injuries on a training course may occur if you think you ‘need’ to be able to do a certain posture in order to be a teacher.
