I have been “playing” and experimenting with yoga, aromatherapy and healthy living since my late teens – researching, testing, reading, investigating, and learning anything that would make my life -…
If you are about to go to your yoga teacher training and think that you will surely return as a competent yoga teacher. You can be wrong!
If you only enroll in prestigious educational institutions around the world, you will not necessarily become a successful person. Similarly, completing your 200-hour yoga teacher training course at a renowned yoga school does not make you a successful yoga teacher.
For a successful yoga teacher training you not only have to be totally dependent and dependent on your mentors, but you also have to be fully involved and work hard.
Here are 5 tips to follow to make your 200-hour yoga teacher training successful:
1. Proper time management: Due to the comprehensive curriculum, yoga teacher education has a very compact and extensive schedule. In order to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge and become a qualified teacher, it is essential to keep the time allocated. It is a daunting task to create harmony between your yoga classes, lectures, exercises and breaks. By managing your time properly and planning your day well, you can avoid overburdening yourself with the full schedule of training.
2. Stay Hydrated and Moisturized: During your intense yoga sessions, hydrating and hydrating your body is essential as you perspire a lot more than normal days. Always bring a water bottle. When sweating we lose our electrolytes. Simple water can not replenish all. Therefore, it is advisable to add a pinch of salt and some lime juice to your water as this would fill your body with minerals.
3. Pay attention to your body: Despite the fact that the main motive of a yoga teacher training program is to become familiar with yoga postures. This does not necessarily mean that you only have to take the right attitude in the first attempt. Listen to your body, know its limits and give it as much time as it needs. Gradually, your body will automatically expand its boundaries without being hurt or injured.
4. Practice as much as possible: Yoga teacher training is about turning you into a yoga expert who can easily perform any yoga posture. In order to do this, it is very important to practice as much as possible all the yoga postures that you are taught as we all know that through practice you will be perfect, whether you are doing math or yoga.
5. Enjoy your workout: To make your yoga training more effective and successful, one of the most important things is that you enjoy every single moment of your workout. If you could prove it like any other ordinary intensive course, you could never get the results you want. Take risks, your mistakes, profound learning, basic practices, your connection to your teacher and other colleagues, your food, your accommodation, and enjoy every single deployment you can. Practice as if no one were watching, eat as if you were provided with the most delicious meals, live as if you were in a palace and see how that time becomes one of the best and most memorable of your life.
So think of these little things and make the most of your yoga teacher training.
