10 Tips to Know for New Yoga Teachers

Before you invest in a yoga teacher training school, decide what you want to do with your certification.

Encouraging yoga is a hurricane of planning, learning, feeling, and enthusiasm.

For any individual who thinks yoga is simply extending, reconsider.

family-yoga-at-yoganandham

Every yoga class is a huge number of moving parts that when assembled make a brain, body, soul encounter for the practitioner. It’s really intended to help individuals in all features of life, not simply the physical perspective.

To get a look into a yoga educator’s life, underneath is what they are responsible for. The following are 1O Tips for New Yoga Teachers to help get the procedure:

  • Setting up the yoga stances and arrangements.
  • Making a music playlist.
  • Picking a mantra, statement, or perusing to impart to the class.
  • Choosing if the class will have a subject or work up to a pinnacle act.
  • Demoing the yoga stances + changing understudies.
  • Teaching the class for 60 – 90 minutes.
  • Connecting with the understudies when class.
  • Opening/checking individuals in before class, cleaning the floors and shutting after class.
  • Marking individuals up for packages, month-to-month memberships, workshops, and so on.
  • Stock/retail buys.

As should be obvious, there is A LOT that goes into one yoga class and it requires A LOT of consideration and exertion from the yoga instructor. In the event that new to the yoga-showing world, this can be extremely scary and even startling.

I was set up to encourage a yoga class BUT uncertain of myself and anxious in the meantime. It took a couple of long stretches of educating, valuable feedback, and positive criticism to quiet my nerves.

Like anything throughout everyday life, steady practice will enable smooth to out the wrinkles and give numerous exercises en route.

These tips scarcely touch the most superficial layer of showing yoga and the numerous circumstances that can emerge.

As a yoga trainer myself, I practice all of the above and continue to expand and grow upon them.

Make sure to hone tolerance and industriousness and realize that instructing will begin to end up simpler, more liquid, and common – simply like the yoga stances have after some time.

 

 

 

Significance of offering water to Sun

Our ancient Hindu literature says offering water to Sun God can have the miraculous effect on you.

  • When the spectrum of sun rays refract through the water, it breaks down into seven colors. The energy emanating from these rays of different colors is absorbed by the body and balances any dosha in the body.
  • The sun-rays refracting through the water of libation are a vital source of vigor and beauty. The green, violet colors refracted from VIGBYOR of the Sun are considered rich sources of anti-bacterial energy.
  • This process helps us miraculously in the intellectual upliftment of the individual and it also reflects enhancement of his acumen in decision making, in eye-sight, digestion, luster as well as splendor.
  • Human body is made up of five things, air (Vayu), water (Jal), earth (Prithvi), fire (Agni) and space (Aakash) and the cure of all the ailments of the body is amongst these five things only and the rays of the rising sun are one of these things.
  • Many diseases can be cured by the use of sun rays e.g. ailments of the heart, eyes, jaundice, leprosy and the weak mind.

What is Yoga Therapy? – Yoganandham

yoga therapy training in Rishikesh - YoganandhamAn Introduction to Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy utilizes poses, breathing techniques, and meditation to benefit and improve overall health.

While any type of yoga can bring health benefits, yoga therapy involves employing a variety of yoga practices to try to improve a health condition or to ease a natural process, such as pregnancy or menopause. Among the yogic tools used therapeutically are asana (the physical postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation, and guided imagery. Although many people don’t realize it, yogis also consider diet an integral part of yoga and therefore of yoga therapy.

Why Yoga?

Therapeutic yoga is an inherently holistic approach, simultaneously working on the body, mind, and spirit. Various yoga practices systematically strengthen different systems in the body, including the heart and cardiovascular system, the lungs, muscles, and the nervous system. Yoga practices can improve the function of the digestive system, foster psychological well-being, and improve oxygen delivery to tissues. Yoga also can help the body more efficiently remove waste products, carcinogens, and cellular toxins.

Most people in the West live stressful lives, and yoga—and by extension yoga therapy—is perhaps the best overall stress reduction system ever invented. Stress has been linked to a wide variety of medical problems, from migraine headaches and irritable bowel syndrome to potentially life-threatening conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Since persistently high levels of stress hormones, particularly cortisol, can undermine the function of the immune system, here too yoga can help.

While yoga by itself can alleviate a number of problems, it is particularly effective as a complement to other forms of health care, both alternative and conventional. Studies suggest, for example, that yoga therapy can lessen the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for people with cancer and facilitate faster recovery after bypass surgery. In clinical trials, many patients with asthma, type II diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes), or high blood pressure who began a regular practice of yoga were able to either lower their drug dosage or eliminate some pills entirely. Less medication means fewer side effects, and, sometimes, very substantial cost savings.

Yoga Is a Slow Medicine

While yoga is strong medicine, in general, it is slow medicine. The key to successful yoga therapy is an incremental approach, which tends to be safer and more effective than more aggressive strategies. It is best to begin yoga [therapy] as medicine slowly and ramp up the intensity and duration of practice only as circumstances allow. For some students, particularly those with serious medical problems, therapeutic yoga might begin with only a posture or two, or a single breathing exercise, until the student is ready for more.

In any yoga therapy session, ideally, you only want to teach a student as much as they are going to be able to practice at home. Better to teach a few things well than to have them try to do more with less precision. An exception to this rule would be when you teach a specific series of practices in one session in order to teach the student to relieve a current symptom, with only a small portion of the total practice assigned as homework. More experienced students, of course, may be able to handle much more.
