Yoga Teacher Training,
is it really for me?
Reasons Why to take a Yoga Teacher Training,
even if you don't want to teach...
If you're reading this right now, you've probably considered taking yoga teacher training in some capacity. It's a natural thing that happens to many yogis once they reach a certain point in their physical practice. But teaching isn't for everyone. So should you bother taking a yoga teacher training if you don't ever want to teach? The answer is a very simple YES! Here are some legit reasons to take a yoga teacher training, even if you have no intention of ever teaching...
How Does a Yoga Teacher Training Change Your Life & Practice?
Deepen Your Personal Practice
Learning the mechanics of why we practice asana in a certain way, why alignment should be this way and not that way, yogic philosophy, in-depth study of pranayama and more.
Learn Healthy Alignment
Learn the reasons behind principles of alignment - these can be super helpful in daily life – outside your personal practice. You begin to notice things in your body naturally throughout the day – postural habits, asymmetries, etc.
A Boost in Confidence
You might question why you decided to do this and if you’re even capable. But during the process, you will strengthen your voice, your beliefs, your sense of self. You emerge on the other side more confident in thoughts, words, and actions.
Discover Your Strength
Challenge your strength physically, emotionally, and mentally. A constant physical practice, the stresses and insecurities that accompany virtually any challenging task, social anxieties, etc. All of these will contribute to the ultimate realization of how strong you truly are. You can handle more than you think.
Yoga teacher trainings should really be thought of as inward journeys. They will certainly teach you practical yoga skills like alignment and proper body awareness to help you avoid injury, but what they have to offer goes so far beyond the physical—it is amazing.
