Why A Yoga Teacher Training Course Is A Life-Changing Experience

I tried yoga for the first time in college and enjoyed it because it was a way to ease my pain while working on the computer all day. I practiced for a few years, first as a yoga teacher and then as a trainer. Yoga teacher training sounds dramatic, but it is true: Yoga teacher training is a life – a changing experience.

It never occurred to me that I wanted to be a yoga teacher until I went through one of the Down Dogs. I never imagined that I would be taking the first step on my path to becoming a certified yoga teacher in January 2014. My hope is simple: to share this incredibly powerful practice with anyone who wants to learn it, and to show one student after another that yoga is about the body.

Yoga has the power to transform itself and teacher training has proved to be a catalyst for personal transformation for me. I began to notice the transformative power of yoga teacher training in the early 2000s, just as I was attending my first yoga class in New York City.

I finally saw patterns in my life, especially unhealthy ones, and I wanted to act consciously to be my best self. As my body got stronger, I did poses I thought I could never do well, but I did because of my yoga teacher training course.

I never imagined the impact it would have on me and I would recommend it to anyone. I became a yoga teacher because I love yoga and yoga education in general, but also because of ULU Yoga’s incredibly personal and effective approach to teacher training.

They will teach you how to become more emotional, improve your communication skills, listen to other people and much more. But the most important thing that a ULU Yoga course teaches you is how to become a yoga teacher who can take care of your students and help them find their true selves by having a much deeper understanding of Yoga as a whole, both in practice and philosophy. Once you become Yoga Alliance RYT certified, you’ll be able to start teaching basic asanas, but after a year of practice, your skills will be deepened and you will feel even more secure. This training will enable you to become a yoga teacher and its essence, to broaden your understanding of the healing effects of meditation, yoga, meditation practice and yoga practice.

To help you stay in touch with your training during each training session, you can practice yoga and share your personal experiences with ULU’s amazing community. 

I would personally recommend you to practice Hatha Yoga for at least a year, starting with basic posture skills. This way you can not only keep in touch with each other but also stay in touch and practice and keep in touch with the training throughout the training sessions.

You will also have the opportunity to explore other styles of yoga, as ULU’s multi-style YTT program specializes in learning Vinyasa Flow as well as Hatha, Yin and a variety of other teachings, all taught by some of the world’s most renowned yoga teachers and trainer instructors. You will have ample time to learn what is necessary, as the curriculum is very well thought out and organized. Once you have completed your yoga teacher training course as well as an ongoing practice for some time after graduation, you will truly be ready to become a full-time teacher in a yoga studio anywhere in the world.

A yoga teacher training course can give you the chance to find the path you are looking for. If you want to become a professional yoga teacher, learn more about yoga or go beyond basic meditation and asanas, this training will make the transition to a full-time teaching position as easy as possible. Another great advantage of training a yoga teacher is that you can experience something unique.

When you sign up for 200 hours of training, you see that you are improving so quickly. You will be taught much more than you thought and you will experience unforeseen benefits and you will experience a whole new level of consciousness and understanding of your body and mind.

You will grow yourself, learn to connect with your true self and develop your spirituality and become a fantastic yoga teacher during the course. Teacher training is a unique journey that will teach you lessons and change your life.

For some people, this could mean the start of a new career in yoga or even a career as a yoga teacher. For others, it may be the perfect way to enter the world of yoga and start a life – a changing journey. Sign up now and receive a copy of the Yoga Teacher Training Course Guide and a free yoga book.

You do not have to pay for travel, transportation, meals or accommodation and can even save up to a year by considering joining ULU Yoga’s online yoga teacher training program. Here are 5 reasons why you should participate in an online yoga teacher training program. If you choose to train online yoga instructors, you can save a lot of money during your training and even more money in the long run.
