Why You Should Make Yoga Teaching Your Career

Why You Should Make Yoga Teaching Your Career

If you’re reading this right now, you probably have a passion for yoga that you want to explore. You feel happy, energised and relaxed after each class.

You’re now more flexible, you feel ten years younger, your metabolism is faster and you’re generally more healthier. Now that you know that yoga is not an exercise but a lifestyle, you want to share your knowledge with others. If this is you or you just want to turn your passion into a livelihood, then here are three reasons you should consider becoming a yoga teacher:

 

You will find out what your strengths are

You will be tested in your yoga teacher training. Your will and ability to hold postures, to focus, to speak in front of people will all be stretched and strengthened. Furthermore, after your training, you’ll feel physically stronger. In addition, you’ll also be emotionally and mentally stronger too.

You will deepen your spiritual and asana practices

The meditation and chanting practices, as well as study of the Yoga Sutras that you experience during your training will help you to transform your spiritual practice. You can use these sacred tools in your daily life to help you connect to yourself at a deeper level. Your awareness of alignment and the longer practice sessions will all help you take your practice to higher heights. Furthermore, you’ll be surprised at the kind of postures you’ll be expressing after your training. 

You will become a teacher

Very obvious, huh? Well, after completing your YTC you will become a teacher! So, use this power to build your own teaching style that is mindful and authentic. Remember the teachers who made a positive impact on your life and strive to bring the same aura to your students. As a teacher, you’ll have the opportunity to give back those who may not have access to yoga, as well as your students but . Therefore, try to search for yoga opportunities in schools, prisons and other community outlets and spread some yoga love.
