Want to Grow as a Yogi? Consider Yoga Certification

When you fully appreciate the physical and spiritual benefits of yoga, it's natural to become inspired to share your enthusiasm for the practice with other people. From students who are first starting out in yoga practice to yogis who have many years under their belts, you can touch many people in Friendswood and beyond by getting certified in yoga instruction at Sundance Yoga Studio.

Once you've decided to become a yoga teacher, there are many yoga teacher trainings to choose from, including the 200 hour and 500 hour certifications. At Sundance Yoga Studio, we believe in staying up to date with the most current techniques and methods.

There are a number of reasons to get your yoga certification in Friendswood. For one, there are a number of health benefits associated with yoga, such as lowering your blood pressure, strengthening the body, and even lowering body fat. You will also be able to stretch your muscles which can keep you fit and also aid in the recovery from injury. Teacher training helps you pass on these physical benefits to each student in your classes.

In addition to the wonderful health benefits, yoga at Sundance Yoga Studio or any studio provides a number of emotional and spiritual benefits. Any yogi who loves to practice would be a great candidate for yoga certification. Yogis tend to be very dedicated to the practice already, so the extra hours required for certification time will not seem too daunting. These hours will be spent in a studio, practicing yoga, something that won't feel like work at all.

Current instructors for other physical activities, like Pilates or group exercise, are also great candidates for yoga teacher training. Instructors tend to be physically fit and usually enjoy learning new fitness regimens. If you're a personal trainer, you might also want to look into getting certified to teach yoga -- it will allow you to expand your areas of expertise, attract more clients, and allow you to assist your Friendswood clients in new ways.

Sundance Yoga Studio always recommends continuing education after a yogi gets his or her yoga certification and becomes a teacher. Typically, this additional education is provided through workshops; if you want to maintain a current certification with the Yoga Alliance you will be required to attend 75 hours of continued education every three years.
