Yoga Teacher Training Retreats
(See also: yoga.)
A yoga teacher training (YTT) is an excellent way to strengthen your yoga practice—regardless of whether or not you intend to be a yoga teacher. No matter which lineage or style of yoga you practice in, teacher training programs tend to place a strong emphasis on courses in yoga physiology and philosophy, as well as asana practice.
A typical yoga teacher training might be involve a series of weekend intensives at a local yoga studio, or a month-long retreat in a tropical location.
Yoga teacher trainings around the world typically offer a professional certification through Yoga Alliance (YA). Yoga Alliance offers 200-hour (RYT 200 and E-RYT 200) and 500-hour (RYT 500 and E-RYT 500) teaching credentials, as well as certifications for children’s yoga teachers (RCYT) and prenatal yoga teachers (RPYT).
