Thinking of getting a certification as an instructor? If you’re going to learn how to teach yoga, why settle for any other place to do so than the yoga capital of the world?
Bali, the island where magic feels real and a yoga session takes you to a state of mind where you can meet the gods face to face – at least that’s my theory of why it’s known as The Island of the Gods.
If you haven’t been to Thailand, you’re definitely missing out. It’s one of the hottest travel destinations in the world and a top 5 for yoga vacations – simply a place any yogi should visit.
Choosing to take a yoga teaching license abroad means that you are completely removed from your everyday life – giving you the opportunity to disconnect and be in tune with the present. Classes are smaller too, which allows for the teacher to give each student a significant amount of attention – ensuring that they are well supported in their training!
It all depends on how long you can be away for and how many hours you are willing to dedicate to learning yoga. There are different lengths of yoga teacher training courses from 200-hour to 300-hour and finally 500-hour courses.
Many students generally head to India to get certified as a yoga teacher primarily because the country is known to be the birthplace of yoga, offering some of the most authentic yoga experience in the world. Yoga teacher training in Costa Rica is also popular due to its amazing beaches and friendly locals, guaranteeing you a great experience!
The all-inclusive nature of yoga makes the practice accessible to anyone who is interested. You don’t have to be extremely fit or flexible to teach yoga. As long as you have the drive and intention, you will be able to teach successfully!
