Many people who undergo teacher training gain an enhanced spiritual standing. Yoga serves to help quiet the mind and attune to our true selves. If you have long thought about taking up yoga teacher training, here are a few reasons to take the leap.
Delving into the practice – Yoga training programs bring together a variety of students to learn from each others’ body types, flexibility levels, strengths and injuries. Finding yourself learning to love those poses you always dreaded and hope the instructor skips over comes with practice.
Find your tribe – One vastly underrated benefit of YTT programs, is the yoga family that you stay connected to years after your program ends. As you delve deep into your own practice, you are also supporting the journey of others around you and thus being part of a supportive network of warriors. Once you complete your yoga training, your family will expand further as you embrace your students, other teachers and the yoga community.
Learn a few skills – Earning your RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) is just another addition to the long list of things you are skilled at. Upon completion of your training, you can officially register with the Yoga Alliance as a RYT and gain access to a lot of resources. These include how to start your own practice, finding new students and earning additional training hours.
Becoming a yoga teacher offers you the choice of self employment as also the flexibility of teaching either locally or internationally. The encompassing nature of yoga means the world is your oyster.
