10 Things I Learned from Yoga Teacher Training and why this is for you

  1. Student Needs a Teacher

To study yoga you need a guide, an expert, someone who’ll bring out the best in you!

  1. It’s more Than a Hobby

Teaching Yoga is a commitment, it’s real study, practice and willingness to go beyond oneself

  1. It’s more than postures

Training incorporates all facets – meditation, mantra, benefits of a pose, philosophy, and the power of  

consistency

  1. The Program Matters

What you will learn matters. A great teacher training program will depend on the studio’s reputation,

teacher’s expertise, methodology, accessibility of faculty, practicum, respect for the teachings.  

These are the foundations for the this yoga teacher training program.

  1. Patience Pays

It takes time to develop, and it takes patience. But Patience Pays, as soon as you start – the process starts.

  1. Expect the Unexpected

As you begin the yoga teacher training, things will change. Your ego will get in the way. Since Yoga and meditation strengthen the nervous system, you will be able to embrace and welcome the change and intensity  of the experience.

  1. Relax

You will learn to relax in midst of everything, and you’ll be able to help others relax as well. This is one of

the rewards of being a yoga teacher. Having this remedy is an incredible benefit.

  1. Communication is Key

As a yoga teacher you will learn to project and communicate neutrally. It’s universal and a whole new way to connect with others.

  1. The Path of a Yoga Teacher

Finding a teacher, committing to the teachings, deepening the practice, choosing the right

program, going step by step, being aware of the possibilities, and relaxing in the midst of it all is

what yoga teacher training is about. Following this path, I developed my inner light and have become a  

teacher of yoga teachers.

  1. The Power of One

You will learn the power of One. One person with the right training can do anything.

The ancient art and science of Yoga is vast. In teacher training you learn that each movement,

mantra, meditation and breathing practice has a nuance to offer, an entire body of information.

It is fascinating, in-depth, and enhances day to day life. It will become your new toolkit for

success.
