Here are 5 great reasons why you should train to become a Yoga instructor:

1. There is work out there

Yes, that’s right… there are so many opportunities for work in the fitness industry with so many gym chains and leisure centres out there. We also have more and more boutique style studios opening up all over the place too. You can even create your own opportunities by setting up community-based classes in local halls. Really all you have to do is make yourself available, put yourself out there and be reliable.

2. Get more in tune with your own body while also helping others…

You will learn about your own body in your Yoga practice. You will become so aware of how you move and feel in your own practice you’ll be able to take this into your own teaching to help you help others with theirs. There is a very holistic approach to Yoga, which not only benefits the participants but the instructor too.

3. It’s a rewarding career

Any job in the fitness industry is rewarding as you get to see your participants/clients improve their fitness, move better and feel better. Yoga is no different and has a huge effect on your wellbeing too. You will see improvements in your participants physical and mental health as it truly gives them ‘me’ time.

4. Flexible in more ways than one

Becoming a fitness or Yoga instructor not only gives you a flexible way of working but also a flexible body. Due to your own self-practice, you will master the poses so that you can show effective demonstrations therefore you will also see your flexibility increase and your own movement patterns improve.

5. The perfect chance to turn your hobby into a career

If you are already practicing Yoga and have a passion for it, this is the perfect chance to turn something you love doing in your free time into a rewarding career. Do something you love and get paid for it!
