Have you ever thought about embarking on the 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training journey?
I’ve assembled a few points to consider to see if YTT is right for you.
This was specifically done for a Yoga Studio I work with, but these thought apply to any YTT training you are considering – and you should shop for more than one option. These days you can find even online training programs, that do not require you to travel to a special location. However, I do believe a hands-on experience is much more beneficial than an online class in this instance. But please, make your own judgement on this issue, as the pro and con point for everyone are different.
As I mentioned, this was specifically done for a studio offering 200hr YTT.
If you like to know more about their specific program, email them at email@example.com.
Any 200hr training should cover include these:
THE PHILOSOPHY OF YOGA
IN DEPTH EXPOSURE TO THE 8 LIMBS, THE YOGA SUTRA’S, PRANAYAMA (BREATH CONTROL), ARYUVEDA (YOGIC HEALTH PRACTICES) & MEDITATION
THE SCIENCE OF ALIGNMENT
