Becoming a yoga teacher after your yoga teacher training
Before you followed the yoga teacher training, you had already determined for yourself why you wanted to do this training. Do you want to become a yoga teacher? Then this training is of course a very good starting point for this. But what does it mean to become a yoga teacher? What do you have to take into account? What do you have to arrange? What is your vision on yoga and being a yoga teacher and how do you want to convey this to your students?
Today yoga is a business. It is mainly about the body and movement. The spiritual side of yoga is hardly used, especially in gyms, but just as well in yoga studios. Is this bad? It's a shame, but exercising is better than not exercising. And we are now in an era where yoga is very accessible and popular. We expect this to be a phase. The next phase is (hopefully) for the spiritual side to get more attention.
As a yoga teacher, you are always a student yourself. You continue to learn, develop and grow in all sides of yoga.
Yoga teacher, now what?
Many yogis start the yoga teacher training from self-development. They want to know more about yoga, history, philosophy, anatomy and often about themselves. It is an intensive course in which all these aspects are discussed. But what can you actually do with the yoga teacher training?
