Do You Want To Opt For A Yoga Teacher Training Course?
It’s 2022, and the world is not short of Yoga instructors or teacher training courses, that’s for sure. So, where does one begin to look when probing the wide world of Yoga. Firstly ask yourself this; if you were interested in learning Traditional Chinese dance, would you visit Australia to take a course? It seems a little disconnected, right? Perhaps it makes more sense to journey to the heart of Yoga, the spiritual magnet, the Motherland herself – Rishikesh, India.
Rishikesh- The Yoga Capital Of India
Ok, so Rishikesh sounds lovely. You’ve done some research, and you’re mesmerized at the sight of the city at the foothills of the Himalayas and right beside the holy Gange River. The next question is, how do you find the right school for you? Nowadays, it’s easy to jump straight onto Google and search “yoga school in Rishikesh,” which will give you several options.
Or perhaps you can take the gamble like in the good old days. Show up open-minded, take a few different classes, ask around and see what best fits you and your needs on your journey, keeping in mind everyone’s different. Book your one-way ticket, pack your bags and embrace the process of the Yogic journey to begin before you even leave your home country truly.
Short Courses In Rishikesh
If you’re sneaking away from work for a short period of time and only planning a short stay in Rishikesh without the luxury to explore before your course, don’t fear! In Rishikesh, you will find many schools offering short courses. Those with flashy websites and attractive prices may not be the best choice for you, be smart, read people’s feedback and their experiences, and follow your intuition (that’s the key).
Now, you’ve visited a few schools, but the question still stands what school to commit to? Although Yoga is Yoga, and you will gain experience and knowledge wherever you decide, there are so many “types” of Yoga nowadays, so be sure to research what you’re getting yourself into. Ask yourself, why am I embarking on this teaching journey? There are many reasons why people decide to dive into a TTC.
Some people in your course will have never practiced Yoga in their lifetime, yet some will be experienced practitioners. If you consider a career change and think that a 200 hour course will guarantee you the qualifications and ticket to teach, I hate to burst your bubble, and it’s not that easy. Teaching requires time and experience. Understanding what you are teaching is the first step, so be sure to connect with your practice and understand how your body, soul, and mind work before choosing a course.
Best Course To Choose For You
There are many courses available to choose from in Rishikesh alone. A new influx of foreigners comes each week to take a teacher training course. Maybe Yin Yoga is for you for those interested in a very internal practice? Interested in more of a powerful approach, perhaps Ashtanga is the way to go. Are you intrigued by a traditional format?
Hatha could work best for you. Ultimately the choice is yours, and all will be beneficial in the long run but take time to research before you find yourself knee-deep in backbends. It’s like going to a new hairdresser. You want to see a haircut before you let the scissors get close to your head. Research and experience the teachers offering the courses, and feel a connection with your teacher; after all, you will become a protégé of their works. Good luck!
