Become a Registered Yoga Teacher

When taking the path to becoming a registered yoga teacher, it can be met with confusion. Many journeys are different and reflect the uniqueness of mind, body, and soul. While this may be the case, there are six simple steps that you can follow for optimum career results.

1. Do Your Research

Today, there are many different styles of yoga. When it comes to teaching yoga, it's important to decide which discipline to choose:

  • Vinyasa
  • Hatha
  • Yin
  • AcroYoga
  • Bikram Yoga (Hot Yoga)

It is recommended that you try each style before deciding to learn its art form.

2. Consider Your Budget

hile owning a private yoga studio is the ultimate goal for many, being self-employed can be scary, especially in these challenging times.

First, you must decide whether you are financially stable to cover any slow starts as you build your business and brand. If not, you may decide to work with an established yoga studio and garner the necessary experience before branching out.

Once you have decided to take the leap, you need to consider the costs of this. Rent, overheads, insurance, and marketing are crucial to the success of any private yoga studio.

3. Understand the Yoga Alliance

Yoga Alliance is the largest nonprofit association that fosters and supports high-quality, safe, and accessible yoga teaching.

Having a certification through the Yoga Alliance signals to potential students and employers that you uphold a high set of standards.

To become Yoga Alliance certified, you must complete a 200-hour yoga certification at a Yoga Alliance registered training school. Yoga Alliance recognized institutions such as Rishikesh Yogpeeth offers several courses ranging from beginner to more advanced.

4. Choose a Training Program

This step requires you to do some research. There are many options for training, and it's important to invest your time and money into one that is right for you.

Here are some key tips to keep in mind:

  • Make sure your training is Yoga Alliance-Certified
  • Choose hours that work for your life
  • Look into how they teach anatomy
  • Study the program's history
  • Research the instructors

The location also plays a significant part in which training program you choose. Rishikesh Yogpeeth is situated in the Yoga Capital of the World and is one of the most prestigious schools associated with Yoga Alliance.

5. Get Some Practice Teaching Yoga
