It is clear to anybody who has begun the examine of yoga that it's a advanced and complex system. In fact, at its roots, yoga was often a life long subject of research, a each day endeavor between student and guru. Due to this fact, it is not stunning that many trendy yoga teachers and practitioners really feel that a 200-hour program is not practically enough for their very own research and teaching! This curiosity in addition to the need to either deepen one's own observe and knowledge or improve one's teaching capacity and depth are some of the causes that many lecturers really feel compelled to embark upon a 300 hour yoga teacher training program.
A 300-hour yoga teacher training program usually allows a student of yoga to begin to delve into the more delicate and philosophical points of this practice. Whereas a 200-hour program is concentrated more on the postures (or asanas) that a student will seemingly be teaching more than anything, a longer format training can start to get into the actual substance of this follow, its psychological and subtle methods and theories.
Though it's definitely useful to be able to educate the extra "train" type courses that there may be a robust marketplace for, those that hold coming back to yoga (and desire to show it) usually are pursuing it for one thing greater than a powerful and flexible body.
The mental, energetic and transcendent features of a yoga follow are what separates yoga from an easy train program, and are sometimes what academics and practitioners are most curious about.
