Those of us who don’t appreciate or enjoy strenuous exercise like going to the gym to weightlift or high-intensity cardio tend to look for an activity more calming and relaxing. Something we can easily start our mornings with before work without rushing to get there on time! And a clear choice of light exercise that has drastically grown in popularity over the years is indeed yoga.
Yoga is diverse in its many shapes and forms. If you’re looking for something more active and engaging then Vinyasa is for you, but if you’re looking for something leaning towards slow and calm for beginners then Yin and Hatha are great choices. Therefore because of yoga’s vast diversity in types, we often find a certain type that resonates with us the most and that we can easily incorporate into our everyday busy bee lives.
But behind closed doors, you may be looking for more than just practicing yoga as a hobby. You may be looking for a way to deepen your practice or make a career out of it. In this article, Inner Yoga Training dives into the 3 top reasons many of the students that cross our path decide to join a yoga teacher training and why you should in 2023!
Push yourself out of your comfort zone
There’s no doubt about it, doing a 200hr yoga teacher training is not always easy. Because most courses are intensive you’ll require discipline, determination, and the physical endurance to practice and learn every day for a matter of weeks.

But the feeling of completing yoga teacher training and becoming a certified yoga instructor is priceless, words can’t describe it! You’ll get a sense of accomplishment and excitement to embark on a new career path. Are you ready to step out of the box?

During the best yoga teacher training in Bali, you will typically see asana clinics aimed to resolve the battles you may be facing in your mind. Inner Yoga Training also offers pranayama morning sessions aimed to help you build a connection with everything that surrounds you and to learn to live in the present moment.

To begin the journey of self-exploration
Self-exploration is a practice of mindfulness, just like yoga is, do you see the link? Self-exploration means taking a look at your own feelings, thoughts, behavior, and motivation and asking why.
