People usually come to know about yoga through asana (yoga poses), & true enough, the study of asana comprises a large portion of the course. Although a solid asana practice is preferable, you do not need to have a very thorough understanding of the asanas. You also do not need to know how to do advanced asana. It is more than enough if you are familiar with the basic asanas & are physically comfortable with them!
Because in our experience, we have had many people who considered themselves advanced practitioners, yet had the wrong understanding about the asanas & how to do them!
As with any area of study, the hunger & desire to learn more is of utmost importance. If you are willing to devote your time & energy into practicing & deepening your knowledge about yoga, now is the time!
It would be advisable for you to already be regularly doing some form of physical exercise (even if it is not yoga) before joining a Yoga Teacher Training Course, because you will be doing asana for about one to two hours daily. But even if you are not, no worries, because yoga is not a competition – it is about more than just asana.
Just because it has the word ‘teacher’ in it, does not necessarily mean you have to teach once you graduate!
As previously mentioned, one of the main components of a Teacher Training Course is asana (yoga poses). During the four weeks of your course, there will be many sessions dedicated to the study of asanas, where you gain invaluable tools to apply in your personal yoga practice.
If you think your regular yoga classes are awesome, wait till you attend Teacher Training classes!
In a regular class, the teacher does not have the time to fully cater to the individuals in his/her class. Here, however, you will have a whole month to dive deeper into the poses. The longer practice sessions & attention to the finer aspects of the practice will bring your practice to a whole different level!
That being said, once you gain this awareness of your body, you will begin to move through life more mindfully. Even seemingly mundane actions such as walking & talking will be a completely different phenomena!
As we all know, yoga is a very spiritual practice. In a proper Teacher Training Course, you will also be exposed to meditation & chanting practices, as well as the teachings of the Yoga Sutras. It doesn’t matter where you are in your spiritual practice, or even if you have one. The philosophical ideas that crop up will transform your life & the way you live it!
Most Teacher Training courses in the more developed countries are only weekend courses, due to restraints in cost & time. That being said, they are also relatively much more expensive.
If you want a full-on, true yoga experience, you should definitely invest in a residential program instead of a weekend course. A large number of residential programs are conducted in India, Thailand & Bali (Indonesia).
Firstly, yoga took birth in India, with Rishikesh being the yoga capital of the world. Would it not be best to return to where it all started, & learn from the best? Not only that, at the same time you will also be saving a lot financially, as well as enjoy a break of four weeks from your regular routine.
The average cost of a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in the USA (which runs for 21 to 27 days) is between USD5k to USD10k, depending on location, school & what is being offered. In stark contrast to this, it will only cost you between USD1200 to USD2000 in India.
That’s a crazy amount of savings, but bear in mind that you will be leaving some of the luxuries of your life behind!
