Are you ready to take a yoga teacher training in 2019? There are many times when we go between feeling ready and never feeling ready at all. A yoga teacher training is more than making a living or earning side income, It’s about learning what moves you and then helping others find their internal agni to achieve that fulfilling life! Yoga teacher trainings may sound daunting at first. Some factors that you should consider are time, money, where you want to complete your RYT and most importantly, why?

Some reasons you may want to consider getting your yoga teacher training may include the following:

  1. To deepen your physical practice – Challenge yourself with new poses, concepts and apply what you learn to your practice on and off the mat.
  2. Learn some skills – Learn proper alignment, yoga anatomy, yoga philosophy and how to manage a room and speak clearly to people.
  3. Find your yoga family – If there is one underrated benefit of yoga teacher training programs, it is the yoga family you will stay connected to years after your last savasana.
  4. Become a teacher – If this wasn’t obvious enough, once you’ve completed your yoga teacher training you will have all the basic tools to start teaching yoga! Use your experience and knowledge to develop your own unique teaching style that is authentic and mindful. Think back to teachers who made a positive impact on your life and strive to pay it forward to your own students.
