10 Reasons to take a Yoga Teacher Training

Have you been contemplating getting your Yoga Teaching Certification? Whether you plan to teach or not, taking a teacher training can improve your life in so many ways.

  1. Deepen your Yoga Practice
    It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been practicing yoga, there is always somewhere else to go. Yoga teacher training is a life-changing experience. You will learn the physical, mental, physiological, and philosophical aspects of yoga. You may choose to harness this information for your own practice or share it with others through teaching. Either way, the knowledge gained is indispensable.
  2. Overcome Limiting Beliefs about Yourself
    What limits you in your yoga practice? Do you have a hard time sitting still during Savasana? Do you have a fear of falling when you’re practicing arm balances? A Yoga Teacher Training may help you overcome the beliefs that are limiting you when you learn the mechanics, or hear other people’s struggles! It is time to break through the comfort zones and expand into places you never knew existed.
  3. Build your Community
    You will be immersed in the field of like-minded, expansive souls from all different backgrounds and experiences that will support you in your yoga journey. Some of the friendships you make in a Yoga Teacher Training will last a lifetime.
  4. Learn how to build a Sustainable Yoga Practice
    There are so many ways to approach yoga practice. Not only will you be learning how to individualize your practice, but you will also learn how to help others modify their practice for a healthier and more empowering approach.
  5. Explore Beyond the Physical Aspects
    Yoga has a rich history with many different facets and traditions. Mountain Yoga was founded on a primarily Ghosh based approach to yoga, whereas many studios in the valley lean more towards an Ashtanga lineage. Not sure what that means? Yoga Teacher Training will teach you more about it!
