WHY YOGA HOUSE?
Great to see you on Facebook. Cannot speak more highly of the amazingly talented and wonderful Lisa and Lyn. The Yoga House Rocks !
– Graham Monroe
Since suffering a major heart attack, I spend a lot of my time making sure that I keep a good level of fitness. Recently I decided to start yoga, after having one lesson at beginners class at the Yoga House I appreciated how good it was for me and how much I enjoyed it…. I’m already feeling it do me a world of good.
– Denis Hamill
I feel very blessed to be a part of your Yoga House… it makes me a better me, every single day, and I just love it. Lyn and Lisa are very special to me and my family.
– Bec Newman
- Many of our teachers never thought they would be teaching, they just signed up to learn more about this great yoga. Teaching yoga is fun – but if it’s not for you then, the experience and knowledge you will gain with a remedial yoga teaching course at The Yoga House is just as much about personal development as it is vocational training.
There is more to teaching yoga than just showing others how great your yoga is. Teaching yoga is a combination of the skills you learn in your teacher training course and your general life experiences. A good teacher training program should give you the knowledge and experience to teach groups of individuals – because that is exactly who you will be teaching in a class.
Yes you can. With vocational training, you can be job ready. Job ready means the course you complete includes all the skills and knowledge to be confidently employed. There is only one government registered yoga course in Sydney, (training.gov.au) – The Yoga House, Registered Training Organisation ensuring the highest level of training in Australia. Do your research of the courses on offer and make sure that you are getting what you need to be a successful yoga teacher.
Even the best made plans can change – life happens. So, make sure your course offers you comprehensive documentation, online student assistance and opportunities to work through the work you may have missed. Good training programs often include study buddies and mentoring. Talk to the course advisors to make sure that the times offered for the course suit your needs and what time commitment you would need to make. You also want to think about the support you get after you graduate. The best colleges offer mentoring and support programs with continuing professional development for their new graduates.
People do not magically appear on the mat when you start a new business, book the local hall or put on a class in your lounge room. Look for a course that includes elements of business training, marketing, self-promotion and business administration. When starting a business, you need to know all about latest work health and safety policies as well as your rights and responsibilities as a yoga teacher. You should also insist on a course that gives you a thorough knowledge of the human body and a basic understanding common health issues. This is a must for anyone working with people and will help you deal with the variety of people in your classes.
Consider a style of yoga that is more than just a simple sequence of moves, or the latest fad. There has been a strong increase in demand for remedial therapeutic styles of yoga giving graduates the opportunity to work outside the fitness industry. Choose a course that is accredited with the Australian Skills Council of Australia as this will also open up career paths for continued education in the complementary health care industry.
There are hundreds of quick and online courses claiming that this is all you need to become a yoga teacher. They seem an affordable option in relation to cost and time. However, most of these courses don’t give you the actual experience you need to become a safe and successful yoga teacher. A good teacher training program should give you experience teaching in a supervised and supportive environment. It should include your personal practise and all the added costs involved when teaching including first aid certificates, and the skills you need to register with industry associations making you eligible for insurance coverage.
Registered training organisations offer interest free monthly instalment plans that make the training a more affordable option. If it is a local studio or teacher offering training and demanding upfront payments, make sure that you check how safe your study program fees are before signing up.
Your own yoga is not the most important part of becoming a yoga teacher. Over the years we have had people start the teacher training that have had little experience with their own personal yoga, but a huge desire the help others. These are often our best teachers as their focus it not on themselves, but sharing the yoga with their clients.
Don’t let anything stop you from doing something you love. Yoga teachers are just normal people, with their own injuries, habits (good and bad) and physical restrictions. Think of it this way, if you have had a bad back, you will have more understanding and empathy for your client than someone who has not experienced back pain.
The great thing about Remedial Yoga is that you can practise right up until the day you give birth. It is safe and is also recommended for women to do while they are pregnant. Don’t forget, our have been running for many years and will be for years to come, so you can transfer to later accredited training courses when you have had the baby.
