Covid & RYT 200

As humanity struggles with more than just Covid over the next 20 years, interests with spirituality will increase.  So yoga teacher trainings will become more popular because of that.

Ready To teach

Aside to Covid, many people go to yoga studios over years and are happy to just go to the favorite yoga teacher or  favorite yoga class. However,  about 10% of yoga practitioners feel inclined to teach yoga and share the beauty of yoga with others. 

These are people who yoga has had a massive positive transformation on their lives.

You Want To Expand Your Personal Practice

Aside from Covid and the desire to teach, some  people just want to learn more about yoga. As yoga is not a discipline taught at colleges and Universities, so really the only way to learn more about yoga is taking a yoga teacher training. 

So many who take yoga teacher trainings, never teach but go on to enrich and enhance their own personal yoga practices.
