5 tips | Choosing a Yoga Teacher Training

CHOOSING THE RIGHT YTT FOR YOU CAN BE OVERWHELMING

Tips for future yoga teachers.

Choosing the right yoga teacher training for you

First, let me introduce myself. My name is Pilu, I have been practicing yoga for over 9 years and teaching for over 5.

I am an RYT 500hs certified teacher. I have done many YTT Yoga Alliance and non-Yoga Alliance:

  • Ashtanga in India (non-YA)
  • Yin in Indonesia (YA but non-add)
  • Aerial Yoga in Indonesia (YA) (to become an Aerial Yoga Teacher you first need to be a 200hs Teacher)
  • Hatha online with an Indian School (YA)
  • Vinyasa online with Briohny Smith (YA)
  • Anatomy for yoga with Jason Crandell (YA)
  • and more

Here are my 5 tips to help you with your Yoga teacher Training decision:

1 – Choose a style of yoga that really resonates with you, the one you enjoy practicing the most.

2 – Get in touch with the teachers, and try to get to know them a little beforehand. The YTT can be quite intense and better if you empathize with the teacher’s style in advance.

3 – Choose one or 2 styles of yoga at most in a YTT. Aside from the fact that there will be little time for too much information, you will put yourself under a lot of stress when you finish the course. Imagine that you will have to be able to prepare classes for maybe 4 different styles of yoga instead of concentrating on one or two and reusing them until you feel confident for more.

4 – If your plan is to have yoga as your main income then make sure “Business of Yoga” is part of the course syllabus.

5 – Be careful in prioritizing the Yoga Alliance certification over the quality of a course. This one is a bit tricky because if your plan is to do a long career probably at some point you will need to have the certification. I can explain that in the call*.

I am happy to share my experience and help you if I can.

I remember when I was doubting about doing my first YTT. Choosing a yoga teacher training was quite overwhelming it would have been a great help to have someone who guided me in a holistic way in my decision.
