What to consider when choosing a yoga teacher training
1. Where to go - Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) Destinations

There are so many beautiful places around the world that you can complete your yoga certification.

Where do you want to go?

Top of many lists and with the most affordable options are Teacher Trainings India.
Birthplace of yoga and with the holy city Rishikesh where you can truly immerse yourself in your spiritual journey.

Or maybe you would prefer the energy and freedom of the beach and the ocean's horizon.

If so check out Goa for affordable teacher training options.

Yoga Teacher Training Retreats in the Tropics

Undoubtedly this is a great option with so many yoga schools offering diverse yoga courses.

Consider Bali, Thailand or Costa Rica.

Just check the weather for the time of year so you dont hit the monsoon where you are.

2. The curriculum

Yoga Alliance with the yoga community has set a standard course curriculum that includes

  • yoga traditions, the lineage and history of yoga
  • yoga philosophy
  • yoga poses & postures (asanas)
  • pranayama & meditation
  • yoga anatomy and learning the body energy works
  • teaching methodologies where you discover your inner teaching voice & philosophy

The content of the modules change depending on the course and style.

Search for the course and style that you are most comfortable with.

What isn't in the curriculum?

Being vulnerable, growing off the mat, your heart opening in ways you didn't expect ... an experience of a lifetime

3. The Yoga Styles to choose from

Search for the course that touches your heart and the yoga style that you are comfortable with.

With its sequence of asanas Ashtanga is physically demanding producing internal heat.
Ideal for building core strength and preparation for even more dynamic practice.

With asanas and pranayama focus Hatha Yoga encompasses most yoga styles.
Offers a slower pace that can be a good introduction to yoga.

Vinyasa may well be the most popular yoga style in the West.
By moving from one posture to the next using breath it creates the 'flow' it is so well known for.

4. Yoga Certification Courses

Yoga Alliance has a standard for yoga trainings and furthering your education as a yoga teacher.
Deepen your practice and further your knowledge & understanding with these yoga certifications.

This is the standard intensive course everybody starts with to attain their yoga teacher certification.
The yoga school and course will meet the Yoga Alliance standard.
That doesn't mean they are all the same though.
Find the course that matches the experience you are looking for.

Furthering education after your 200 Hour course these 300 Hour yoga teacher trainings give you the opportunity to go deeper into your practice and yoga philosophy.

By completing the 300 Hour course certification you are eligible to be a RYT 500 registered yoga teacher which is the highest qualification as a yoga teacher.

What else do you need to know?
Are the schools registered?

Every course listed here is Yoga Alliance certified. That means the school is registered and meets the requirements at each yoga training
and provides you with your yoga teacher certification.

What's included?

The majority of intensive courses are 20 days to one month long.

Most schools have different accommodation options in their pricing. 

This will generally include two meals a day, the course training and course materials,

aswell as the all important yoga teacher certification at the end.

What are the requirements to attend?

Most Yoga Alliance accredited schools ask for a minimum period of practice, at least 6 months or a year. 

For yourself if you are committed to going deeper into your practice, growing and expanding your knowledge then your desire is the only requirement.

What's the schedule like on a one month intensive yoga course?

A typical schedule starts at dawn and ends at dusk with a well earnt big break in the middle.

Its normal that there is one day off a week to stop and play.

Your practice, knowledge and flexibility will grow week by week.

We refer to these yoga courses as intensive because that's exactly what they are.

Commonly asked Questions
1. Am I ready?

If you have a desire to go deeper into your practice and expand and grow then a life changing experience awaits you.

2. How much experience is necessary?

Most of the yoga community agree that about a year is the right time although there is no correct answer here. Experimenting with different styles and teachers at the start can help. When it comes to selecting your first yoga teacher training, a program that focuses on the style that you are most comfortable with makes sense.

3. Do costs differ by country?

Yes, the costs do vary by country.

India & Thailand have many affordable courses, Bali & Costa Rica can be more expensive as the locations themselves cost more to visit.

Generally expect to pay 2000 USD upwards for an intensive course that includes accommodation and food except you may be able to find cheaper options in India.

If you would prefer luxury comforts and amenities with your training then Bali & Costa Rica have many great options.
