There are now so many Yoga Teacher Trainings to choose from in Ireland today and there are many factors when choosing a training. In today’s busy world people often need to consider dates and locations above the content, style or reputation of the training. When people approach me about training, I always encourage them to try and put the content of the training first. This is a big investment; for your own development and your teaching and it is important to choose a training that you feel reflects the style of yoga that you want to teach and that you get a good “feeling” about it.
Some people do a training just for the piece of paper, wanting to teach their own thing after the training. In my opinion, this is not a good starting point. There is a lot to becoming a good teacher, even if you really know your stuff already. By choosing the correct training, with a teacher you trust, you will receive encouragement and support in the style of yoga that you will later share with your students. Having to jump on trains, planes and automoblies to get to the right training for you can be done ! and it will be worth it !
So when considering a training, ask yourself :
* What style of yoga do I want to teach? * Is the training school reputed and established? * Is the training that is internationally recognised? * How long do I think I need to train? For example, some people might find that a longer training might suit better than a one month intensive, or visa versa. * Do I connect with the essence of the training? * Do I feel that the content of the training will bring me to the place of feeling confident to teach? * Do I feel confident that the training will deepen and develop my personal practice?
If you can think of any other relevant questions when considering a teacher training, please forward them to the blog.
When considering doing a teacher training, its a good idea to hear what other people have to say about it.
