THE CONVERSATION: What qualifications are necessary to be a yoga teacher?

Experience and knowledge play an important role in teaching yoga. This working group will explore qualifications of teachers and delve deeper into the topic by looking at current YA requirements and provide recommendations on areas and tactics to enhance current provisions. What prerequisites, if any, should exist for taking a teacher training? Is the current 200hr/500hr system sufficient? Should the “hours” system be scrapped? What skills and competencies should exist in a yoga teacher?

 

Updates to this Working Group:


 

– This group will begin work in May 2018.
