Yogis take yoga teacher training (YTT) courses for many reasons. Not all of them are because they want to teach!

As a matter of fact, completing a yoga teacher training certification course is a great way to deepen your practice, learn new skills, forge new relationships, become more physically fit, and discover more about yourself.

If you’re reading this article, though, you’re at least a little bit curious about either taking a YTT course. Or maybe you’ve said no to teaching but now you’re reconsidering! Whatever the case, there are lots of ways  to use your yoga teacher certification.

With MyYogaTeacher 100% of your TTC is live. And you'll get access to incredible teachers with rare levels of experience and yoga education. Rohan, one of our members’ favorite yoga teachers and the host of our TTC’s, has taught 17 in-person TTCs, 6 online TTCs, and managed 13 others!

We're not like those self-paced courses you'll find on the internet. With a TTC from MyYogaTeacher, you're not paying for a series of videos (that you can watch or not), a few live Q&A sessions (that you can attend or not), and booklets or packets (you can read or not).

With our Yoga Alliance certified TTC, you'll get:

 

✔️ 100% live instruction

✔️ A group chat with your teachers and classmates

✔️ A 150-page e-book

✔️ Recordings of each of your classes

✔️ A community setting that keeps you motivated and energized

Teach private yoga classes

Who doesn’t need a little extra money these days! Saving up for a big trip? Need to supplement your current income? Have kids in college? Since yoga is something you love to do, teaching 1-on-1 yoga classes either virtually or in person won’t even seem like work! If you’re comfortable, you can even make yourself a bit more marketable (and make more money) by offering private classes in a client’s home. 

Plus, you’ll continue to grow and deepen your practice and stay physically active. It’s a win-win!

Become a yoga content writer

Do you like writing? If you have a talent for it or are willing to learn, lots of online and print publications are always looking for contributors. Many of them are paid gigs! Or you can start your own yoga, fitness, or health and wellness related blog. Those are money makers too! 

You may have to do some research to find the publications that are right for your knowledge base and writing skill, but if you’re into writing and yoga, you’ll at least enjoy the work you’re doing.

Lead a yoga teacher training

There are always yoga teacher companies looking for certified yoga teachers to run live workshops, create content for yoga courses, and help yogis navigate the yoga teacher training course smoothly. As a yoga teacher training course leader, you also get to experience the happiness and joy of other yogis who are growing in their practices and succeeding  at overcoming challenges and obstacles in their life and practice!

It’s always a good feeling to see others succeed and know you had a part in that.

Be a volunteer yoga teacher

While MyYogaTeacher strives to make our 1-on-1 and group yoga classes affordable for everyone, we understand that there are still plenty of people out there who simply can’t afford to invest in themselves in this way. 

Or maybe they don’t have access to the internet. Maybe they're older and scared to do yoga alone. There are plenty of reasons someone may not have access to yoga classes. 

As a certified yoga teacher, you have a world of opportunities to volunteer your time teaching! Places like senior centers, the Boys and Girls Club, fitness centers, and spas are all great places to use your newfound knowledge of yoga teaching.

Be a yoga social media influencer

If you’re social media savvy and have a decent following on multiple social media platforms, being a certified yoga teacher can benefit you in the digital world! It is not uncommon for yoga apparel and yoga equipment companies to contract with yoga teachers to represent their products or ask them to be brand ambassadors. 

If you have a strong social media presence, or the ability to create one, you can promote yoga events, gear, apparel, and products on your social media platforms. Often, this can become quite lucrative!

Sign up to be a yoga teacher assistant

If you are wanting to dive head first into the world of yoga teaching, a great place to start is by finding a yoga studio, gym, or instructor who will allow you to assist them. Being a yoga teacher assistant, while usually unpaid, is an awesome way to get your feet wet and your foot in the door.

It may not be easy, especially when you’re first starting out, but it’ll be worth it! You’ll certainly build upon what you learned in your yoga teaching training and grow as a yogi and as a teacher!


Whether you’re wanting to become a yoga teacher, grow in your yoga practice, find a side hustle, or just need the accountability to build better a yoga habit, MyYogaTeacher’s Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Training Course is a great way to do all of that! Plus, you’ll make friends, build relationships, and meet new people from all walks of life and all parts of the world.


When you enroll in our Yoga Training Course, you’re not just saying yes to being a yoga instructor. Because some of you may not have that goal.

 

You’re saying yes to YOU.
