Content of a Yoga Teacher Training
What is the content of a yoga teacher training. This is a foundational question for any training. It is right up there with what style of yoga do you teach. I suggest you approach this question with some idea of what you are looking for in a program.
Are you only interested in the asana? Classic theory? Do you want to know the Sanskrit names for the poses? Are you looking for a more contemporary or contemplative approach?
Spend some time with this question and be as specific as possible. Some programs might say they cover meditation but what does that really look like? How long do you meditate and for how often?
If you don’t know what you want out of a program you might end up with ‘buyer’s remorse’. It’s a big investment, have a clear idea of what you want out of the experience before going in.
