How to Become The Best Possible Yoga Teacher

Paul M. Jerard Jr.

Once an intern graduates from a yoga teacher training course, there are many high expectations. Within each of us, these expectations will differ, because we do not all want the same thing. There are many different fields for Yoga teachers to pursue. Physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health will not be addressed equally by any two yoga teachers.

One yoga teacher might focus on yoga as an exercise, while another will address the therapeutic aspects of Yoga, and yet another will address the spiritual aspects of "union." These are just a few of many potential possibilities, but there is a common formula to be the best you can be.

If you have become a yoga teacher, you are already doing what you love, but many of your students do not love their occupations. Your passion and inspiration for life should be contagious. Students want to learn from a yoga teacher who is "full of life."

Make an internal commitment to excellence. This commitment requires constant effort and action. Unfortunately, most of the world gives up and refuses to take action. This lack of action is to your advantage, if you take the next few steps.

Learn as much as you can, and practice as often as possible. This may require you to take more yoga courses, and visit yoga teacher workshops. Online and correspondence yoga teacher courses are a viable option, as well.

Read as much as you can about yoga. If you can read Yoga books and yoga magazines for one hour per day, you will have amassed 365 hours of study in one year. If you get tired of reading, watch a new yoga DVD for an hour.

If you did this every day, for four years, you would easily be a "strong teacher" about the subject of Yoga. If you continued to do this for ten years, or more, you could become one of the most knowledgeable Yoga teachers in the world.

If you study yoga for life, you will become the best you can be. This commitment to excellence only requires one hour per day. This formula is not complex or difficult, but most certified graduates, of any subject, will not take the action to begin, persist, and endure, because most people are not self-starters.

It is only human to perform better in a structured setting - where deadlines for examinations are set and enforced. This is how we earn college degrees or become a certified yoga teacher. What separates the top ten percent of any field, from the rest, is the inspiration and motivation, which burns like a fire from within.
