When you start out as a yoga teacher and your students put their trust, health and well-being in your hands, it is both overwhelming and a big responsibility on your part. Over a period of time when you see the positive impact your instruction is having on the lives of your practitioners and you are recognised in your community as a positive influencer, yoga teaching becomes a fulfilling experience with a deep sense of life purpose.
In additional to the sense of emotional well being, teaching yoga can also be monetarily rewarding in today’s booming health and lifestyle industry enabling you to meet your financial needs.

How to choose a good yoga certification academy?
As someone who is considering to be a yoga teacher the first and foremost question on your mind would be where to do your certification.Some of the determining factors are
Lineage – The lineage of the school plays a very important role in determining the course content and the way the information is imparted to aspiring teachers. The longer the lineage the more authentic and accurate the transfer of knowledge from teacher to student.
Course content – The courses should be inspired and adhere to traditional Yogic scriptures like Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and Hata Yoga Pradipika making them authentic in practice and philosophy of yoga.
Studio experience – In addition to certification courses if the school is adept in running successful yoga centres, this insight is a key factor in setting up your own yoga centre or teaching as a freelancer.
Peer Network – It is important for a yoga teacher to have a strong and active peer support group that keep you updated on new career and learning opportunities.
The teacher training courses at a1000yoga have been designed with the above pointers as fundamental guidelines.
