Yoga Teacher Training – for All Ages
Santosha is dedicated to helping yoga teachers reach their full potential and we see no limitation on age — in fact we want to encourage more yogis of all ages to join us on our Yoga Teacher Trainings!
“Now this is a moment 😍 Congratulations to this very inspiring Mother and Daughter graduation team!!!! What a beautiful new yoga teaching duo”
This image is so heart warming for us as it really shares our view that yoga and yoga teaching is for everybody – and every body!
All ages, all shapes and sizes can benefit from yoga… and share those benefits with others through teaching.
We often hear from people who are middle-aged and up, looking for a career change or just for a unique experience for personal growth. Often they are inquiring with some apprehension concerning their age, which we find a real shame as it just shows how wide spread the misconceptions about yoga are.
We are very happy to let them know age is no barrier to being an amazing yoga teacher, or to learning more and finding transformation through yoga.
This has been one of the best months of my life. I have met so many beautiful souls I will cherish for the rest of my life. I’ve learnt so much from all these truly lovely humans and my being is forever impacted by your vibrations. I love you all so vibrantly💕🕉 @shealene_desgroseilliers
One growing trend we are seeing is yogi entrepreneurs who want to start their own business or a business related in wellness. Our Level 1 course is such an excellent place to start to get some incredible knowledge about yoga — regardless if you directly teach or not.
One such student was Tracey Carmicheal, who added the skills and experiences she learned on the training to assist her clients through her business Happy Mind Studio. You can read more about Tracey and her journey with Santosha here.
We have graduates from such a wide spectrum of ages on our yoga teacher trainings and we are also seeing many of our graduates (of all ages) pursing careers and opportunities leveraging their time with us.
The growing aging population needs yoga and yoga teachers to guide them to live a more healthy inspired life in retirement. There are huge opportunities for yoga teachers with the skills and expertise to work with this demographic. Perhaps that’s you?!
All of this is about mindset.
Don’t hold back because you think you’re too young, too old or even not fit enough.
Another common concern we hear is that students have been injured or have on-going health issues such as arthritis. Well guess who else has those issues… the population you will be teaching!
The world needs more teachers who can cater to those who need modifications and alternatives for their yoga practice.
We find that injured students often do best at teaching, as they have a greater understanding of working within the limitations and considerations of the individual’s body.
Call us and we will share with you countless examples of people just like you that were so happy they made the decision to go against the “norm” — which isn’t really the norm at all when you scratch the surface!
You do not need to have a ‘perfect’ body or a ‘perfect’ practice to join us on our Yoga Teacher Trainings. All we ask for a Santosha student is an open mind and heart and willingness to dedicate yourself to study.
If this sounds like you… we would love to have you with us on this journey!
