Online yoga teacher training
One of the most fundamental factors to consider when becoming a Yoga instructor is whether you want to learn from online Yoga teacher training or in-person training. A common misconception is that one may be better than the other, but this is not the case! At PYC Academy, we often get asked which is better: online or face-to-face teacher training? It all comes down to which you feel will personally help you thrive better in your journey to becoming a Yoga instructor. Here are a few things to consider as you decide between the two types of teacher training.
Online vs. face-to-face yoga teacher training
Do you have a busy schedule? PYC Academy Teacher Training is 200 hours, so it is important to make time to integrate training into your life. Typically, those who gravitate towards online training do so because they appreciate the element of flexibility that it offers. For example, it is more accessible for those with young children or anyone who has a hectic lifestyle. However, if you have a schedule that allows it, being in a studio for face-to-face training and connecting with other students can be extremely rewarding too.
What sort of pace do you thrive in? Face-to-face training works well for people who enjoy getting immersed in the energy and pace of students around them. However, with online training, you have a bit more leeway to take things into your stride and at a pace that may be slower or faster than your peers.
This may not be the case for all yoga teacher training courses, but some may offer online training that is slightly cheaper than face-to-face training. This is true of PYC Academy, as we believe in giving everyone the best opportunity to fulfil their desire to be a Yoga instructor.
Regardless of which training you choose, the most important thing to remember is that the quality of teaching will not be compromised.
Is online yoga teacher training worth it?
Aside from the cost, location and flexibility, think about whether you feel you will be receptive to remote learning. Will online teacher training bring the most out of you as a student?
If the answer is yes, then online Yoga teacher training is definitely worth it for you. If you feel as though you could benefit from both online and face-to-face training, PYC Academy offers teacher training that merges the two so you can get the best of both worlds.
