    I want to teach yoga.  I’ve taught it myself for months now.  Two books and a simple course.  But I am not really certified.  Yet, I want to teach it for so many people.



    hi Chris!  Yoga is such a wonderful thing!  I have been practicing for about 6 years now and to say that it has improved every aspect of my life would not be an understatement.  I am so happy that you discovered it.  I totally understand your wanting to share this gift with others.  I say to you though, exercise caution here.  Yoga, while a beautiful thing, also has the capacity to physically injure.  Not everyone listens to that inner voice that says “ok, that’s enough. stop here”.  Part of being able to teach is having enough experience to help people find that inner voice.  Teacher training is also there to help you recognize what a student’s capabilities are.  Experience is something that takes time.  I would say to you, wait to teach.  Get some time under your belt.  This does not mean that you can not share the gift with others- far from it.  I find it so rewarding to introduce a friend to yoga.  Invite people to join you in a class.  Not everyone is receptive-  and that’s ok.  When you find someone who is, it is so rewarding!

    I wish you all the best 🙂
