There are different ways to become a yoga coach or instructor and each individual can go about it in different ways. Some people take years to build up their own experiences and skills before deciding that its time for them to pass on the knowledge and benefits to others. However, it is also possible to take a more direct approach in the form of an intensive 12-month course, which allows you to qualify within 200 hours so long as you are willing to commit. Such a course is offered by Seasonal Yoga Teacher Training and is made up of 12 modules all focusing on different areas of practical and theoretical yoga.
The unique aspect of this course is that is utilises the seasons and draws on the different types of energy that we each posses at different times of year. By learning how to recognise the types and flow of our energy we can know how to use it most positively and beneficially. Chinese and Indian aspects and traditions are included in the course and students will also learn how to use and teach yoga for specific purposes such as weight loss and medical issues.
