Quotes from Students

" I'm sure you'll have lots of fun playing with sequencing, and you will deepen your practice through the process, too!"

"Being yourself when you teach is KEY. Theatrical and goofy is fun and people will LOVE it!"

"Everyone brings their own gifts when teaching and it's about being yourself, not fitting into any kind of mold."

"Doug makes yoga fun with his lighthearted humor, and new students are especially attracted to that."

"Your personality sets the stage for a fun yet supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere in a class."

Sometimes extra opportunities to earn hours are available when there are special workshops going on or when you start "practice" teaching free community classes for instance.

The teacher training sessions are a mix, where some are more lecture/discussion (which is great in a group of people who all add to the process) and some are practical and applied "learning how to teach", BOTH are important.
If you ever have questions on how to teach something or working with injuries or any sanskrit term, then ask us as your teachers. The training is  200 hours, which sets the foundation to a lifetime of continuously learning as a teacher, and there will always be things coming up in class or in your practice that you have questions about, so of course you won't learn everything about yoga in the training; however, you do get your foundation for teaching and a thirst for more knowledge. The reading materials would be great for your library.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics,
jobs for fitness trainers and instructors are projected to increase 24 % in the next 10 years.
The average rate for growth of a profession is 14 percent. As for typical teacher pay in the area, if you get paid per student it is usually $3 to $5/ student depending on the cost of the class and how the studio decides to divide it up. Some places that are not studios, but schools or businesses, tend to offer a fixed rate, from $20 (super low) to whatever you can get.....$35 is probably fair but on the low end per hour class, and of course I think yoga teachers deserve more, but they benefit other ways just by being a yoga teacher too!!
Questions? Call 610-780-9821 Classes will be conducted throughout Pennsylvania.
