7 things to know before signing up

Training to be a yoga teacher is a huge commitment of time, money and passion, so you need to make sure you’re choosing the right course. Sevanti, founder of Unity Studio, School & Retreats advises how to choose the yoga teacher training that’s right for you.

1 Style

Above all else, you need to resonate with the teacher’s approach and style. The teacher needs to recognise you and where your passion lies in yoga and what you want to bring to teaching yoga. The school that you pick must be able to support your specific interests.

2 Size

A teacher will only be able to get to know you and your interests if there’s time and space, so choose a school where you will get plenty of contact hours and time to ask questions and develop your own passions, style and interests. Ideally, there should be no more than 10 or 1 2 people in the group. Any larger and it becomes difficult f or the facilitator to be able to honour your specific needs; also group bonding may be diluted. The goal is to become a close group where you can support and bring out the best in each other. Your fellow students will become your community, the people you will stay in touch with in the future to share your journey, and so the course needs to allow you to check in and share with each other, building up trust and support.
