Many yogis travel to top yoga destinations like Bali, India, and Costa Rica to escape from the daily routines of life and embark on a life changing yoga teacher training or retreat. To be able to practice yoga or become a certified yoga teacher in these insta-worthy locations is a dream in itself, but did you know that embarking on a 200 hour yoga teacher training can bring wonders into your working life?
As you create space in your life to reset and find intention, you will probably come back to your everyday life eventually. But to think that a yoga teacher training can make daily routines easier sounds great don’t you think? Here’s how.
Yoga Teaches Self-Discipline
Rise and shine! During your 200 hour yoga teacher training in Bali you’ll be waking up early in the morning for a meditation and pranayama practice followed by a 90 minute yoga class. If you have chosen Bali for your vinyasa teacher training, you will experience amazing sunrises and an incredible peace early in the morning that will enhance your meditation. It is worth getting up early to experience this but even better it will help you establish a new morning routine for yourself. When you return home, you may find yourself naturally waking early for meditation and yoga practice before going to work which means you’ll arrive at the office feeling more calm and centered.
A yoga teacher training requires a physical and mental commitment as well as a deep willingness to learn, but it also leaves room for you to shape your attitude, set intentions, and focus on the goals you currently have. The days can be long and will be filled with practical yoga classes, theory and lectures, practice teaching, anatomy and more. Now multiply that daily schedule by a few weeks! They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit, so by practicing this daily routine for 23 days with a sense of determination and achievement, you’ll easily transfer this discipline over into your professional and daily life. No more procrastination or daily burnouts, you’ll learn to focus on yourself and make responsible and conscious decisions.
Yoga Boosts your Self-Confidence
Like going to the gym for the first time we always wonder if people are judging us for what we’re doing, the same goes for the very first yoga class. If you’ve been practicing yoga for a while you may still remember how your first class felt. But the truth is everyone is on their own journey and are at different stages of their practice. But if you hadn’t taken that first step to try something new and moved beyond your fear of being judged you wouldn’t be where you are today. Consider what you’ve achieved. A regular yoga practice teaches us to be stronger (mentally and physically) and more confident. It gives you a sense of well-being and calm that leads to greater self-confidence. During your yoga teacher training in Bali, we take it a step further by guiding you in teaching a class. Through regular practice teaching, you’ll have an opportunity to find your unique voice and learn to lead your fellow students.
By practicing this early on in your yoga teacher training, you’ll begin to find your own strengths and skills. You will understand what makes you special. Once you leave the training and go back into your working life, this drive of new confidence will help you move beyond any limiting beliefs that have been holding you back personally or professionally! You’ll be more confident in leading meetings or speaking up about your needs. You may even get the confidence to finally resign from a job you hate and embark on a new career path as a yoga teacher. Your new self-confidence is a force to be reckoned with!
Yoga Helps to Reduce Stress
The most well-known benefit of practicing yoga daily is how it helps us deal with stress. Stress and anxiety are something we experience in every aspect of our lives but how we deal with it is what matters. During your 200-hour yoga teacher training you’ll combine daily yoga practices with breathing techniques, meditation, and yin yoga. Through these practices, you’ll begin to experience the difference in your mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. You will understand the connection between mind and body and how you can use your breath to calm your nervous system and deal with stress and emotions.
Through the mindfulness techniques that Inner Yoga Training teaches, you will learn to be more present in your daily life. This gives you the opportunity to revise your emotional reactions to negative situations and how to deal with them better. Instead of taking on all problems at once, you’ll begin to build patience, and resilience to deal with them one by one and look for a sense of gratitude in each. This applies to your workplace too, no more getting overwhelmed by your workload or recurring issues because when your nervous system slows down through a daily yoga practice you’ll begin to feel calmer dealing with negative situations in a workplace setting.
There’s still time for you to get the real feel of all these benefits with Inner Yoga Training. Join us for our 200 hour yoga teacher training and experience a more holistic approach to your daily life.
