What To Expect in 200YTT Yoga Teacher Training

Teacher training can change you, but only if you allow it to.


Round Out Your Yoga Knowledge

Most trainings do a good job of covering the history of yoga including the Yoga Sutras and 8-Limbs, the various styles of yoga, very basic anatomy and physiology, asana, and the basic mechanics of performing adjustments.


Get to Know Like Minded People

Many of the people who come to YTT have had some type of transformative experience through yoga that calls them to learn more and maybe even to share their great experiences with others. Sometimes when this happens the people in your immediate surroundings don’t initially understand the changes you are making. It can be exciting to meet people who are on a similar journey as you.

Get to know your classmates. You’ll probably have surprising things in common.


Let it Change You

Teacher training can change you, but only if you allow it to. This change can be physical, it can be in the form of letting go of something, or any number of ways that are meaningful to you. There may be moments where the work becomes emotionally difficult, and that’s a great sign! You are strong enough to push through it.


Keep a journal and try to write in it daily or as frequently as possible. It doesn’t matter what you talk about but try to document the journey. How do certain poses make you feel? How are your body and mind changing? How are you feeling spiritually?


Just observe.








YTT isn’t the End


You may not be ready to teach right away and that’s ok and actually pretty normal. There is so much information that sometimes it can take time to let it all sink in and find your own voice out of it all.


YTT provides a basic foundation, but there’s so much more to teaching yoga than completing a course. Learning how to make people feel comfortable in your presence as the teacher and how to safely move bodies is a skill that really needs to be taught by a teacher and practiced over a long period of time.


Find a mentor and keep taking classes and courses regularly, whenever something seems interesting to you. Most importantly, keep practicing. You are your best teacher, and the insights you gain from practicing help your students as well.
