It is said that, “if you light a lamp for someone else it will also brighten your path.” Buddha extolls such wisdom often and in different voices, yet the message is constant and everlasting. You may find that you are drawn to helping others as once a skilful yoga instructor helped you. For those with a passion for inspiration and instruction in Fitzroy, there is Yoga Alliance-registered yoga teacher training available to help you on this next leg of the journey.
A high level of proficiency with yoga is by no means the end of the road. Yoga teacher training not only galvanises the lessons learned from yoga practice, it is a level of learning experience all its own. Now you must not only love the way your own body moves, but you must also learn how to connect that energy with others, and help guide them along their own paths.
The best yoga instructors tend to not only have a solid foundation in yoga practice, but also a strong dedication to enlightened teaching. A thorough and comprehensive training program hones the candidate’s teaching skills and steels their commitment to best practices. Yoga teacher training at SomaChi Yoga in Fitzroy is not a flurry of examinations and demonstrations, but a deep and meaningful immersion into yoga philosophy and self-discovery beyond the student level.
The 200 program lasts ten months, including a retreat to Bir, India. Graduates of the program receive certification from a Registered Yoga School, and the opportunity to become a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.
