How long should you do yoga before doing teacher training?


Yoga teachers have a lot of options as far as career paths go, and they can end up going down any number of different paths. Some people want to teach yoga full-time, while others want to use it as a supplement to their existing profession. However you choose to use yoga in your life, I think everyone should consider becoming a certified instructor. The benefits of being a teacher are many, including the ability to tailor your classes to meet the needs of each individual student and make them feel comfortable enough that they continue practicing on their own after class is over. But before you start thinking about taking your first teacher training class—or even before doing so—there are some important questions worth asking yourself first: How long have I been practicing yoga? And how long would it take me before considering this career path?

Anywhere from 2 to 5 years.

The answer to this question depends on a few things. First, how much experience do you have with yoga? If you’re a beginner and have never done any kind of yoga before, then I would recommend starting as soon as possible. Even if it’s just one class per week, it will help your body get used to the movements and build strength in areas that may be weak or tight (like hamstrings).

If on the other hand, you’ve been practicing for a while but still feel like there are some gaps in your knowledge base; then perhaps another year or two would be beneficial before attending teacher training school. The more time spent practicing will help solidify what has already been learned and give more confidence when teaching others at home or in class!

You don’t have to be a yoga instructor to do teacher training.

You don’t have to be a yoga instructor to do teacher training. In fact, you could also become a fitness instructor and/or dance instructor. Teacher training can also help you learn how to coach athletes and personal trainers.

It’s never too early to start thinking about your future career path

If you’re thinking about becoming a yoga teacher, it’s never too early to start thinking about your future career path.

It’s important to be aware of what you want to do, and have an idea of the training available in your area. You should also consider the costs involved with training, as well as how much time it will take up in your life (and if this is something that suits your lifestyle).


I hope this post has helped you to understand the different ways of becoming a yoga instructor. If you’re still unsure about which route is best for you, don’t worry! The most important thing is that whatever path you choose will lead to a fulfilling life filled with health, happiness and wellbeing.
