You have experienced the power of yoga and want to advance your practice. You are curious about Yoga Teacher Training as it seems like the natural progression of any dedicated practice. Typing “Yoga Teacher Training” into Google returns pages of results opening your eyes to all there is to consider before proceeding down this path.
Yoga Body Shop offers both 200-hour and 300-hour teacher training courses through their Yoga Body Institute, right here in the Binghamton area. With our next 200-hour training course beginning this month, we thought we would offer the following insights for those considering Yoga Teacher Training.
Experience Life-Enhancing Transformation
The Yoga Body Institute Teacher Training Program is designed for discovery of your true self and your true power. Through the teachings, principles and methodology of our training courses, you discover how to tap into the power within you. This allows you to create and build a powerful life and, if you choose, share it with the people around you.
While many attend a Yoga Teacher Training to become a teacher and share their practice with others, others attend to deepen their own personal practice, without the intention of teaching afterwards. For this reason, we refer to the 200-hour training program as the “Personal Power Development Program…with teacher training”. In essence, the “with teacher training” is simply a bi product of the program. Yes, upon completion of this training you will be eligible to register as instructor with the Yoga Alliance. More importantly, you have advanced your own personal power and interpersonal skills through this “Personal Power Development Program”.
Provided you are open and eager to embrace change, you will begin the Yoga Teacher Training with one mindset yet end it with a transformed one. There will be a shift in your life. To some it is subtle—to others it is big, regardless it will be there.
Embrace a Path that Transforms
Whether practicing for a few months or several years, if you are considering Yoga Teacher Training, you have very intense feelings about the art and practice of yoga. You recognize all the benefits it has brought into your life, and you can’t help sharing your thoughts with friends and family. The discipline has brought you a great deal of health and happiness. You are eager to stay on the path, deepen your learning, and perhaps share the teachings of yoga with students of your own.
With the Yoga Teacher Training at the Yoga Body Institute, you will be ready to teach a yoga class with confidence. Again, there is so much more to gain through this program than the ability to teach. As a 200-Hour Teacher Trainee, you will learn the physical, energetic, and spiritual implications of yoga. You will learn the importance of living from your own authenticity. Through the study and practice of the ancient principles of yoga, you will be inspired by the transformation of yourself and by your contribution to the transformation of those around you.
Hear directly from Ron Sambursky, co-owner of Yoga Body Shop and lead trainer at the Yoga Body Institute, as he discusses further what Yoga Teacher Training can mean for you and what yoga has meant to him.
