There are a few things to consider while searching for a yoga teacher training program.

  1. What level of yoga teacher training is ideal for you?

Is RYS 200 the best option? What factors do you consider when deciding whether or not training is proper for you? Consider the following scenario:

A bachelor's degree is comparable to 200 hours of instruction.

A master's degree is equal to 300 hours of instruction.

A combined bachelor's and master's degree is similar to 500 hours of instruction.

Most people start with a 200-hour program and then go to a 300-hour course in a subject area they are interested in or want to learn about.

However, just because most people do things this way doesn't mean that everyone else has to. For example, if you have the time to dedicate to a 500-hour course and are determined to go in profoundly, enrolling in a more extended program may be an excellent option for you. On the other side, after finishing a 200-hour program, you may begin teaching, so it's truly up to you and how much time you want to dedicate to your course, as well as whatever option feels best to you.

  1. Is it a Registered Yoga School (RYS) that meets the new Yoga Alliance YTT Standards?

The new Yoga Alliance standards and how to obtain your RYS (registered yoga school) to conform to them have sparked much debate in the yoga teacher training world. While some practitioners choose not to register with Yoga Alliance or fulfill the requirements, it is critical to inquire about the curriculum, if they are registered yoga teachers, and why they aren't.

The Yoga Alliance isn't perfect, but it's the best we have for now. Enrolling in a program that does not match the new standards and keeping your RYS status may cause you issues in the future since many professions need you to complete training from a registered yoga school before you can teach.

Take the time to make sure your program follows the new requirements and is committed to giving you a well-rounded experience that involves more than just asana practice.

  1. Who teaches anatomy classes?

Here's the deal: as yoga teachers, we're working with bodies and need a deep understanding of how they work. To keep our children safe, we must grasp anatomy and physiology. Unfortunately, most new graduates report that anatomy is one of the areas that they still don't fully comprehend after their studies.

You must enroll in a qualified specialty program that teaches anatomy and devote at least 30 hours of your training to anatomy and physiology. Inquire about who is teaching anatomy and look for people who have a lot of expertise with it, such as physicians or other medical professionals, personal trainers, physical therapists, and occupational therapists.

Proceed with caution if your training is given by someone who has a 200 or 500-hour background in understanding how the body works.
