If you’re thinking about becoming a yoga teacher, you will certainly come across a plethora of teacher training courses. A 200-hour residential yoga teacher training course might have caught your eye since it appeals the most with its Yoga Alliance-accredited certification in less than 4 weeks of training.
Here’s what you can expect from a 28-day teacher training course at Yogmandu.
A 200 hours residential yoga teacher training course is as rigorous as it gets since it squeezes 200 hours of learning into just 4 weeks.
You can expect your day to begin at 6:30 am and end around the same time in the evening with more than 8 hours of training each day.
2. Limited Free Time
You’ll have more than 8 hours of training sessions on most days and that leaves you with little to no time for sightseeing and exploring. Of course, we have a day off every week and this might pretty much be your only chance to engage in tourist activities.
Tiredness and body aches are quite common during a yoga teacher training course. Considering a lengthy training session, that too, with more than 3 hours of asana practice daily, you are bound to feel exhausted.
Though at first, you might enjoy doing yoga, it becomes taxing after the first few days. The practice sessions might take a toll on your body, both physically and mentally, and when that happens, be sure to inform your instructor and they will change things up for you.
The Yoga Alliance requires its accredited schools to maintain a standard structure and this includes, taking exams. Most yoga schools include written and practical tests.
For practical tests, you might have to teach a full-length yoga class to a small group. As for your written tests, the question will likely be a mixture of multiple-choice and written answers.
4.1 Can you fail yoga teacher training?
Despite the fact that the yoga teacher training exams are only a way to assess the potential of new yoga instructors, there’s a slight chance of failing them.
Messing up on practical or written tests won’t be a hindrance but skipping classes and showing disinterest in the lessons might deter your certification process.
