5 things to help you through your course

Amy Clayshares essential tips to getting the most from your teacher training experience

1 Prepare wisely

The pre-training reading list is a guide and will allow you to rock up with some background knowledge and arrive in the ‘yogi zone’. Pre-course homework and reading is meant to be enjoyable so instead of cramming it in and learning the sutras off by heart just take small ‘time outs’ in your week…15 minutes with a cup of tea to curl up with your books here and there will be super beneficial. Top tip: Download the audio book of Bhagavad Gita! Two or three weeks before the training begins, remind your family, clients and work colleagues about your training. You could let them know you will be out of contact unless it is an emergency – this will help them give you space during your course to truly delve into the experience. We encourage our teacher trainees to take a digital detox from their emails, texting and social media during the yoga teacher training. Think ahead for your meals and gather up simple healthy foods to have at your fingertips. In the run-up to your training get into a daily practice of asanas and meditation. The idea is to arrive rested and ready to absorb the experience, so don’t overdo it reaching for the advanced yogi poses – just keep it simple and consistent.
