Are Ready For Yoga Teacher Training? Find Out With These Three Questions!

 
Thinking about taking a yoga teacher training but you’re still on the fence?

Whether you’re new to yoga or you’re a long-term practitioner, making the decision to go through teacher training is a huge one.

So how do you know when you are ready?

Most senior yoga teachers will encourage you to deepen your knowledge and understanding no matter where you are in your practice or how long you’ve been at it. If you’ve been thinking about it and the idea excites you, chances are it’s a perfect time.

Yoga teacher training will transcend your current yoga practice to a whole new level of understanding and awareness by revealing the subtle nuances of the science of yoga. This will help you to more clearly identify your own path within its practices.

Whether you want to participate in yoga teacher training to pursue teaching yoga full-time or part-time, or simply as a way to deepen your yoga practice, teacher training is an incredibly rewarding experience. Some even call it life-changing.

But how do you know for sure if you’re ready to take the plunge? We’ve made it really easy for you with three simple questions you can ask yourself for a clear yes or no answer to whether you are ready for a yoga teacher training.

Three Questions To Ask Yourself Before Embarking On A Yoga Teacher Training Journey

1. Do you have a strong desire for change?

A strong desire is a surefire sign that your soul is calling you towards something. Pay attention to the desire, because it’s guiding you somewhere. This is how alignment works, good or bad.

Perhaps you’re feeling a strong desire that something isn’t working in your life anymore. A strong desire to change careers, move or leave a relationship. Taking a yoga teacher training is possibly the highest act of self-love you can give yourself because it will allow you the time and the space you need to get clear on what it is you want and who you are becoming which is why you are being guided to change in the first place. So allow those desires to change something in your life to become opportunities rather than fear or obstacles holding you back.

On the other hand, you may be experiencing a strong desire to learn more about yoga, deepen your practice, get healthier or meet more like-minded people. This desire is also guiding you toward your higher self. Immersing yourself in the culture of a yoga community like Blue Osa will turn a light on inside of you that your soul has been yearning for.

2. Are you ready to immerse yourself in the world of yoga?

Pigeonholing yoga as just the physical movement that is traditionally associated with yoga, especially in the West, is like viewing one country as if it is the entire world. There’s so much more of yoga for you to explore. Perhaps it’s not even the physical practice that your soul is yearning to learn about, perhaps it’s yogic philosophy, meditation, anatomy or self-care practices and rituals. This is why we strongly encourage you to invest the time you deserve to become a fully present and focused student in an immersive environment like Blue Osa. Once you’re fully immersed in a YTT, you’ll know which aspect of yoga your soul is trying to align you to.

The true meaning of yoga has nothing to do with how flexible you are and everything to do with your personal journey. We will give you all the tools you need to support you on your path.

3. Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey?

So you have a strong desire for change and you’re ready to immerse yourself in the world of yoga. The last and final question you need to ask yourself is if you’re ready to embark on a transformative journey, because we can guarantee, immersing yourself in a life-changing experience like a YTT at Blue Osa, will transform you into the next, highest version of yourself . . . and that isn’t necessarily easy.

The intensity of teacher training tends to bring you face-to-face with your shadow, fears, and insecurities. This is illuminating, scary, and amazing all at the same time. It’s important that you take the time to process everything that comes up and that you stay committed to working through whatever obstacles present themselves.

And when you’re in a yoga teacher training at Blue Osa, you will have the support of an entire community of yogis experiencing the same challenges right alongside you, cheering you on and growing along with you. Forever bonds and friendships are made here for that reason.

You will change. You may have to leave old ways of being and living behind. You may have to walk away from relationships that no longer align. But you will be doing it because it is right for you and your life. Human beings are here to grow and taking a yoga teacher training is a fantastic, condensed opportunity to do just that.

If fear begins to settle in and you are starting to make excuses for why you shouldn’t take a YTT, you’re not alone. Just remember that fear is your ego trying to protect you or keep you small and that it is your higher self that is speaking to you through your desire to reach your fullest potential. You get to choose which voice you listen to. We created a list of the top six excuses that people use to not take the leap of faith and join a YTT, read: 6 Excuses That Shouldn’t Stop You From Taking a Yoga Teacher Training if you’re feeling like your ego is pulling you away from your soul’s calling.
