So you’ve been thinking about Yoga Teacher Training. And you don’t intend to teach.

That was me 7 years ago.

Only about half of the students who seek a yoga certification intend to use their certification to teach.

I had no idea that this was true when I signed up for training. In fact, everyone enrolled in the training I joined had teaching goals . . . except me.

So, why would someone invest the time and money if they didn’t intend to teach? It’s a 200-hour training commitment and thousands of dollars.

Here’s why:

  • To strengthen their personal practice 
  • To engage in self-study and deep inner work 
  • To have a path for deeper study of the 8 limbs of yoga
  • To challenge themselves – physically, mentally and spiritually
  • To connect with like-minded people on a path of personal growth

If any of these reasons resonate with you, I encourage you to start looking at training options. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made. And by the way, I’ve been teaching ever since.
