Step 1: Select your partner.
A non-profit organization that promotes yoga instructors’ standards, the Yoga Alliance, distinguishes both Registered Yoga Teachers and qualified yoga training programs internationally. There are many registered Yoga schools out, the 200-hour NETA program is unique in its modular format at the weekend. Instead of making a large monetary and time commitment, participants can spend hours on schedule and budget while learning from a diverse team of qualified instructors from across the country. Whether you take a workshop for the 200-hour distinction or stand-alone specialty certification, the training quality will enable participants to instruct safely and effectively.
Step 2: Establish the Foundation
It is recommended that a Yoga Foundations Specialty Certificate be obtained first to become a Yoga Teacher. At the same time, a number of NETA’s Training modules may be taken in any order. This workshop offers a platform for the remaining workshops to be built on with 20 baselines focused on alignment, safety, variations, and respiratory techniques. Yoga philosophy, anatomy, and appropriate cure are introduced with practical teaching opportunities.
Step 3: Construct Hours
As Yoga Foundations should first become a yoga instructor, the NETA Advanced Yoga Specialty Certificate should last be obtained. However, the remaining courses can be taken in any order and within any timeframe that meets the participant’s requirements. Learn how to teach different fitness or restaurant yoga styles and reach other groups such as children, the elderly, and the prenatal. While many participants initiate a Yoga Teacher Program without a clear picture of their target audience, these courses can help identify a purpose or passion.
Step 4: Complete your home study and develop a personal practice.
Now that you know the history, styles, and various yoga teaching techniques, take time to reflect and practice yourself. The final requirement of the 200-hour training at NETA is a home-study of what has been learned and individuals’ development. We highly advise you to develop a personal practice as a self-care medicine and avoid burnout when you become an instructor of yoga.
Step 5: Find a mentor and learn.
Even after hours of training and established personal practice, it may be intimidating to take a step towards actual teaching. The diversity of qualified instructors who present our workshops, bringing different backgrounds, experiences, and teaching styles to the program is an additional benefit of the NETA training program. The student can find his or her teaching style by learning from this diverse team. We recommend finding a team-teaching mentor and acting as a guide in the early stages.
Get out and teach! Get out and practice! What can feel awkward and scripted at first will soon become natural and smooth with practice. Expand your range with festivals and training workshops with Yoga and Trauma-sensitive Yoga Practices, as you are getting comfortable.
