So what are the first steps to becoming a yoga teacher? You’ll start your journey with a 200-hour yoga teacher training program. 

200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

This is the beginning phase of your yoga teacher training. While the requirements to teach yoga aren’t  aren’t that clear, this is no doubt where you’ll want to get started. A 200 hour yoga teacher training will help prepare you for every aspect of teaching! Many, however, choose to become lifelong students and move onto the 300-hour and 500-hour training programs to get more in-depth knowledge and mastery of the art of yoga and what it means to teach. Beyond that, there are a ton of other more specialized areas you can continue to train in. 

But for the sake of this article, we will only be discussing what is involved in the 200-hour yoga teacher training program. 

The 200-hour program sets a strong foundation for you to build your knowledge upon. You’ll learn the basics and deeply enrich your practice and understanding of yoga.
