Where to start?

Choose the Yoga Style that is Best for you

The numerous yoga variations use various methods and focus on various objectives. Choose the yoga style that most resonates with you so you can instruct what you absolutely adore.

Determine your learning objectives, such as traditional philosophy, fully functioning anatomy, or particular sequences. All of this will enable you to identify the teacher preparation program that best suits your needs.

The path to a yoga teacher

Complete a minimum of 200 Hours through a School following the Yoga Alliance Guidelines

When considering yoga teacher training, one of the first decisions to be made is whether to enroll in a 200- or 500-hour program. Today, it appears that 200 hours of training is the bare minimum required to be recognized as a yoga instructor.

After completing a 200-hour yoga teacher training, some yoga instructors advance their education by obtaining a 300-hour yoga instructor certification. Your 200-hour yoga teacher training can be viewed as a prerequisite course for yoga instruction.

After receiving your degree, you can start teaching and gaining experience. Similar to earning a master's degree, a 300-hour yoga instructor certification allows you to specialize in a certain approach or style but is not necessary or appropriate for everyone.

Also, we always advise our students to begin with a 200-hour yoga instructor course, gain some teaching experience for at least a year, and then think about enrolling in a 300-hour program. Because the hands-on experience you gain from instructing yoga classes will help you identify the skills or specialty you want to concentrate on and choose the best 300-hour training.
