6 Things Every Budding Yoga Teacher Should Know

As the 2020 Immersive Yoga Training approaches here at Meadowlark, Jenn Usher sums up what the first few months (or years) of being a yoga teacher can be like – and the positive journey a YT course can begin for everyone taking part.

1. You will realise you are a complete beginner at yoga

I don’t know a single person who didn’t eat a huge slice of humble pie when they started their YTT. No matter your practice level, once you start training to be a teacher, you will be reminded that you are at the very beginning of a lifelong commitment.

300 & 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Meadowlark

We are thrilled to extend our training options as of summer, 2019, opening with our 9-day immersion into next-level yoga training and practice. Whether you're new to our Avid Yogi training programme or already part of our extended yoga family, there is a place for you in our continuing yoga training path.

If you are a previously qualified yoga teacher with a 200 Hour qualification with YAUSA, you are eligible to apply for our 300 Hour training (takes place over 3 summers).  Together with your original 200 Hr certificate, a further 300 Hours would put you up to the highest level of training credentials the YA offers: a 500 Hour Certificate.

At the end of the day, it isn't really the paper that motivates us, but the continuous study and connection with higher levels of teaching and practice. Together as a community, we'd love to keep checking in with all of you and work together on developing our offering to levels that distinguish us from the growing number of 200 Hour...
