OFFLINE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING F.A.Q

Who Studies With Us And Why? Plus

"Everything that comes into our lives, every subtle change, merges out of Shakti, the universal force of creation and transformation"

We treat our trainees as individuals whether you are doing this course for your own personal yoga development or you plan to make yoga teaching a full time career or integrate yoga skills into your current employment. Our courses are for everyone. We have had students of a wide variety of nationalities, ages (from 17 to 60+) of all body types (from slim to voluptuous). We have a 'you are good enough' mentality. As a result of our courses, many graduates have chosen to take a new and positive direction in their life with a new outlook on their own abilities.

What Is Our Approach And Philosophy? Plus

Our attitude is honest, open, generous, non-invasive and compassionate. We understand that yoga is a process and have both had long and colourful journeys on the path of life and yoga. Our philosophy is that House Of Om instructors 'teach with soul' and inject personal insight and experience into their classes. We also know the importance of excellent communicators and understand and respect different beliefs and points of view. Most importantly, we aim to ensure that Yogafirst Teachers teach with understanding, knowing the science behind the methods of why yoga works and how. We do not tie graduates down to one point of view but empower our trainees with
understanding and encourage them to find their own yoga style and practice – to be the best....

How Good Does My Asana Practice Have To Be? Plus

We welcome students with a strong yoga asana practice. However, we also believe that 200 hour courses are a foundation in yoga study. If you have a passion for yoga, we do not require you to be able to do a headstand or a full wheel or in fact any posture. The most important thing is that you are sure you have enough interest in yoga to want to commit to a demanding course in order to develop your yoga practice and share it with others change to who will benefit.

What Kind Of Yoga Do We Teach? Plus

The asana style we teach is dynamic vinyasa flow yoga emphasizing internal awareness as well as external form. We ensure that you are given a rounded view of yoga asana and also offer insight into restorative yoga to ensure you have plenty of tools to teach a varied student body.
There is also a strong emphasis on subtle energy practices and a lot of time is spent on pranayama and meditation. In addition we are also adding a tantric element to our courses to reflect our personal passions. We will be sharing tantric practices from the womb yoga tradition, Kriya yoga and Nada Yoga.

How much emphasis is given on teaching methodology and Practice? Plus

We believe that theory is only the starting point of yoga (as Guruji Pattabhi Jois famously put it 99% practice, 1% theory) and ensure that the courses we run are as interactive and practical as possible. None of our courses have more than 20 students. We ensure that there is plenty of opportunity for practice teaching including 2 practical exams with peer and tutor feedback to help you develop as a teacher.

Will I be able to teach after the course? Plus

A small proportion of yoga students will commit to decades of study with a senior teacher (such as an Iyengar or Ashtanga practice) or come with a strong interest in mediation and subtle yoga.
However, in the current environment, people come for very physical reasons: body conditioning, detoxification, to loose weight and burn calories; all relating to their bodies and with an 'instant results' mentality. The yoga experience in the Modern World is criticized for being inauthentic.
Houseo Of Om yoga school programs are designed to reach people from those initial expectations but still educate and expand their awareness of yoga and its benefits. All of graduates are ready to teach if they wish to, and we believe that although yoga is expanding, the need for well-trained teachers is still very high. With all the problems faced by the modern world we believe this work is critical and that there are so many people out there who need help and safe, effective guidance into yoga.
We train teachers to do just that in a clear, non-invasive and tangible way.

Can I certify with Yoga Alliance? Plus

YES for sure, Our course has been approved by Yoga Alliance USA and we abide by their strict quality standards

What About Further Studies When I have Finished? Plus
