Hari Om & Welcome to Gayatri Yoga Tenerife

If your dream is to become a yoga teacher, do not worry too much about difficult asanas, the ideal body shape nor extreme flexibility. We often have a misconception about being a yoga teacher and what that really entails.

Yoga is much more than asanas, they are just a tool to control our mind. The discipline and mind work are the difficult parts. It is very important to understand that Yoga is a non-stop development and learning process.

A yoga teacher training is just the first door we open to deepen this knowledge. Everyone has their personal limitations and difficulties to reach certain postures. Being a yoga teacher does not mean practicing with the students throughout the class or showing them how nicely you can do the asanas. The aim of becoming a yoga teacher is to give knowledge, guidance, correction, and provide help for your students whenever needed.

To become a good teacher it is important to have discipline, a strong will and the desire to learn and absorb the teachings. Sometimes beginners have greater levels of discipline than more advanced students, as they grow constantly, are more open minded and tend to absorb the new information. Often, more advanced students think that they already know everything, and do not give their full attention, or have difficulties handling any given feedback or corrections.

As you can see you don’t need to be an advanced or “idealistic” yogi to become a teacher. You need positive energy, an open mind, to be humble, and the power to motivate your students, to lead a class with confidence, and the ability to offer adjustments and corrections in the right way. These points are important and make you a good yoga teacher.

How to choose the best option for your training?

Intensive Training:
If you don’t have a lot of time and no problems working under pressure away from home, then our intensive yoga teacher training will fit you. The intensive teacher training with us will definitely help you to dive into a yogic lifestyle, build up a strong connection to the teachers and other trainees, and have a strong focus on the training itself. This will offer you a unique opportunity to grow and pursue a personal learning experience.

Long Term Training:
If you have difficulties, need longer to learn and reflect, or if you feel discomfort being away from home and out of your comfort zone, a training with a longer duration over many weekends, would may be the better option for you.
