Why chose for a Yoga Alliance Teacher Training?

Yoga Alliance is world-wide the largest and most well-known association for yoga teachers.  Yoga Alliance has become the standard requirement to register with local and national yoga associations. Being registered with them gives you the credibility and authority as a yoga teacher.  Following an accredited teacher training ensures that you are going to get a balanced course. However you should carefully look the curriculum of the course when choosing a school because many times schools dont actually follow these guidelines or standards in reality.

Our 200 our yoga teacher training course exceeds the minimum standards of Yoga Alliance. It will give you 40 hours of hands on teaching experience and 40 hours of practicum. This will help you to develop teaching skills and improve your personal practice.

How long does it take to become a Yoga Alliance yoga teacher?

A 200 hour yoga alliance accredited course requires at least 180 contact hours. The duration of a course is not defined by Yoga Alliance. Often schools offer their 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified training courses spread out over a short period of three weeks to a long term of three years.  Short courses are intensive and have daily classes and long term courses have weekly classes. At Arhanta Yoga we offer the training in an intensive period of one month.

When choosing for a Yoga Alliance Certification teacher training you have to consider which option is practically possible to combine with your live. Sometimes we get the question, how it can be possible to become a yoga teacher in such a short period a one month. Our answer to this is very simple: It matters infinitely more what and how you do something than how long take to do it. Without a proper system, proper guidance and information it would have taken most of us much much longer to learn to drive a car than the common 25 lessons. Anyone learning to drive with an inexperienced teacher can confirm this!

Our Yoga Alliance accredited certification course is spread over four weeks of intensive yoga training covering 240 hours in total. As we only have limited time, we make sure to spend our time and energy on the information and skills that matter and that help you become a skilled and confident teacher. And it works! Not only because of what we do, what we teach. But also because of how: Full and intensive immersion with no outside distractions.  During our many years of experience in which we have conducted course spread out over a few months and intensive 4-weeks we have seen that the results in teaching skills and confidence of students are much higher when they followed our training at our ashram, in a condensed period of 26 days, in stead of spread out over a longer period.
