The art of teaching yoga requires knowledge, skill and responsibility. If you are interested in teaching yoga, you have probably experienced the powerful physical and emotional effects of a good (or not-so-good) yoga class. As yoga teachers, we need comprehensive training that ensures we lead our students through activities and exercises that are physically and emotionally safe for all participants. We want to offer inspiring classes grounded in both contemporary research and a deeper understanding of the long, sacred history of yoga philosophy. With an intention to serve our students and community, we conduct yoga classes designed to support the awakening of insight and potential in our students, our selves and our world.
All of this takes preparation and practice. A 200-hr yoga teacher training provides a comprehensive, in-depth start to your journey while fostering a lifestyle of self-inquiry necessary to becoming a perceptive, compassionate class leader.
Holding a certificate of 200-hour training strengthens your candidacy when applying to yoga teaching job opportunities. Many settings, including most yoga studios and gyms, require yoga teachers to have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training program, even if applicants decide not to register with Yoga Alliance.
