Yoga can be truly transformative, with each asana inching the yogi closer to a new awakening. You feel it during a particularly powerful session, or at the end of a soft meditative practice. There’s that floaty feeling, that sense of empowerment coupled with stillness and acceptance. And if you have an injury, illness, or issues swirling in your mind, yoga can be the very best medicine.
What yoga style can I teach?
The choice is yours, budding yogi. You could opt for Hatha, which is the most popular and commonly practised yoga style in Australia today.
Or you could branch out into Ashtanga, Kundalini, Vinyasa, Bikram or Yin yoga. If you’re unsure of which to pick, why not play student and sample each style? Then you can narrow your focus and follow a path that matches your passions.
Since yoga can be a personal endeavour, with each of us responding to different styles in different ways, only you can decide which style to teach. So tune in, try out and see which style makes your spirit sing!
What yoga courses should I study?
Before investing in a yoga practitioner course, check that it’s approved by Yoga Australia and Yoga Alliance. These are the approved accrediting bodies for yoga teachers in Australia and internationally.
Why undertake registered yoga teacher training? Because then you know your course meets the high standards set by the associations, and can have peace of mind that you have the experience and skills to start taking classes. Chances are, your students will want to get the best training possible and will ask about your training and accreditation. So start off on the best foot!
You can study yoga courses at the certificate or diploma level – or go even further with advanced training. These courses delve deep into:
- Yoga history and philosophies
- Methodology – including asanas, alignment and adjustments
- Techniques – including meditation and savasana
- Business skills and management
After that, you can get even more in-depth by undertaking teacher training in more technical areas – or branching out into academia.
But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. Yoga teacher training is best approached step by step. So sample a short yoga course, speak to a yoga association about your future goals, and then carefully consider the yoga practitioner courses on offer.
