In today’s economy, most people are more budget-conscious than ever before . . . but all programs are not created equal. As the practice of yoga continues to grow around the country, local and national training programs have emerged that are more like fast food restaurants—churning students through 200 hours of training without providing excellence in education.
As you consider teacher training programs, think through the usefulness of what you are learning and evaluate schools on what is really important. When students take classes, they trust in the knowledge of the teacher—so make sure the teacher(s) you choose to learn from has the insights and experience to give you the best education possible. Then one day you will in turn pass that same knowledge and dedication on to your own students.
Value and Quality Can’t Be Ignored
In the same way that organic food can’t be compared with fast food, inexpensively priced teacher training programs can’t deliver the quality instructors, curriculum or job opportunities that an established school provides.
At Yoga from the Heart, you’ll find teachers and a school that:
- Specializes. We don’t try to be all things to all people—we are not about the latest yoga trend. We specialize in alignment-based yoga. We teach a grounded, authentic, safe and a sustainable approach to the ancient practice of yoga that fits modern times.
- Quality Sequencing. Sequencing (the way a class is organized) differentiates our teaching. We’ve studied and learned sequencing from the top teachers in the industry. We personally design our classes and teach our students how to do the same.
- Top Trainers. Can you imagine how you’d feel if you graduated from a teacher training program and then took a class or workshop with a highly skilled teacher only to realize that you never learned much of what was being taught? Our trainers have and continue to study with the best national teachers in the field today.
- High-Touch and Individual Attention. We provide over-the-top customer service and are committed to developing one-on-one relationships with our trainees. It’s simple: We pay more attention to our students. Our approach has made us the leader in the tri-county area. Small training classes ensure you’ll learn what it takes to be an effective teacher
