You’ve practiced with diligence, mastered a few things here and there along the way and now you’re feeling curious about what more yoga might have to offer you. Whether you become a yoga teacher by accident after enrolling to deepen your practice, or through carefully crafted planning, its a decision that will change the course of your life and propel you forward in strength and grace. A decision to take up a course of study like this is like learning to ride a bike…….exciting, terrifying and totally worth it.
Here are 6 ways to know you’re ready:
1. You feel like you want to know more about asana –
Besides the science of the practice that you will learn (alignment, technique, delivery, class construction, anatomy etc) theres 8 limbs to the practice of yoga that you may have not yet considerd as you flow from up dog to down dog. Learning the holistic view of what yoga encompasses is often what we hunger for. What starts out as curiosity soon grows into a passion.
2. You feel like you want to share your light –
Personal practice is what sets the average teacher apart from the exceptional one. During the teacher training year you will be supported in finding this fertile ground within yourself, growing to live more of what you practice on the mat, in the real world. Its a commitment to put our best foot forward more often. This is a self discovery that illuminates our deepest parts and ignites in us the inspiration to share.
3. Your curious about yoga as a career –
Whether your looking for a complete change of career or to add to the skills you already offer, once you have completed our accredited training you will be officially eligible to register with Yoga Australia as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and access all that has to offer. Becoming a yoga teacher offers the freedom of self employment as well as the flexibility of teaching both locally and internationally. The power of yoga in the world today means the world truly is waiting for you.
4. Your ready to meet new people –
If there is one underrated benefit of the teacher training year, it is the yoga family you will stay connected to years after your last sivasana. While delving deep into your own spiritual and physical practice, you are also supporting the journey of those around you and creating a support network of deep friendships. This yoga family continues to expand as you embrace your students, teachers, and community. Its a circle without end and we would love to welcome you into our fold.
5. You have a deeper calling –
I find that many people who deepen their yoga practice through teacher training leave with a spiritual practice rooted in the understanding that we as people are all very connected even if we share different beliefs. While YTT is a very subjective experience it has a communal element that guides and supports the self-discovery and self reflection that in turn holds space for an approach to life with a heightened sense of awareness.
6. Connect with what inspires you and teach that –
The Bhagavad Gita, states that it is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection. Our course aims to give you the platform to discover what inspires you and sets you apart, then to walk with you as you learn how to communicate just that. Our track record of versatile, diverse and well rounded teachers speaks for itself.
While you may not have the resources to quit your day job, our course enables you to hold space for both, as well as commitments to family and friends. Teachings taken slowly over the course of the year have time to marinate in a deep and profound sense. No matter your age, location, finances, gender or background, listen to your heart. It will tell you if this is your true calling.
Join us for what promises to be an amazing teacher training year with the full 500 hr Level 1 training and the 100 hr Yin training (term 1 2017).
