Choosing The Right Restorative Yoga Teacher Course

how to become a restorative yoga instructor
By Faye Martins

Yoga has become immensely popular lately because of its numerous physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. Restorative yoga is one of the most relaxing styles of this discipline, and there are many people eager to learn it.

Those looking for training to become a yoga teacher in this style have many things to consider. A good restorative yoga teacher course depends on the location, teacher, price, and level of training one needs.

Making an Informed Decision 

Before taking a course to become a restorative yoga teacher, it's important to make sure this is the particular style of yoga one would like to teach. Yoga is a complex art form that branches out into many different styles, and each one is quite unique.

Some people know they want to teach yoga but don't know which style they would prefer to teach. Restorative yoga is all about reducing stress, and it concentrates on healing the body and relaxation. People who have researched this form thoroughly and are positive it's the direction they want to take should begin searching for a teaching course.

Finding a Good Teacher 

One can only become a skilled teacher if he or she has the right instructor.

For instance, if someone flourishes in a class with a positive, relaxed atmosphere, it's important for him or her to avoid taking a restorative yoga certification course that is lead by a strict instructor who creates a negative or stressful atmosphere in the class.

Proper Location 

People looking to become a restorative yoga teacher need to consider location.

Yoga training classes are taught in a variety of places. Many yoga classes are taught in locations that help set a certain mood. For example, some classes are taught on exotic islands with a warm, pleasant climate to help set the mood of serenity and relaxation.

For people looking to become a yoga teacher that are on a budget, finding a class that is close by is what's best. Because of yoga's popularity, it's easy to find a class near one's home.

Certification Length

Restorative training courses for teachers vary in length and intensity. People looking to become certified need to decide how much time they can spare. Those with a busy schedule who want to just learn the basics can find certification courses that only last about a month.

It's important to remember that these shorter courses won't cover as much as the longer ones. Those looking to master restorative yoga and teach their students its intricacies should find a certification course that lasts a few months to a year.

Considering the Price

Yoga teacher training courses vary significantly in price depending on duration, amount of topics covered, and other factors. People looking to become a restorative yoga teacher need to find a course that fits their budget. Unnecessary frills that increase the price should be avoided.

Instead, take a detailed look at what each course offers to see if it's worth the time. Teaching restorative yoga can help people reduce stress, and it's also a valuable tool used to accelerate the healing of various injuries.

In order to become the best teacher of this particular style of yoga, one must first be sure it's the right style for him or her. Teachers, locations, price, and other options should then be carefully considered.
