Independent Study for Yoga Teachers

Yoga teachers might consider going into a more specialized area of Yoga. If you like working with kids, perhaps children's Yoga is an area to explore deeper. Maybe you recently had a baby, realized the benefits of prenatal Yoga, and would like to continue helping expecting mothers. Perhaps your interest lies in the meditation and pranayama (Yogic breathing) aspects of Yoga, and you would like to learn how to help others heal through breath and meditation.

Teaching Yoga For People at Midlife or Older

Teaching Yoga students over the age of 50 is going to be a little different than teaching teenagers. As we age our bodies’ change, joints can stiffen, muscles can grow weaker and bones can become more brittle. However, that doesn't mean that physical activity, especially Yoga, should stop.

When does one become a Yoga Teacher?
