How do you pursue a Career in Teaching Yoga?

A Career in Teaching Yoga has always intrigued me. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Teaching Yoga actually is. Most pages on the internet just talk about How to get into Teaching Yoga. It had been a while since I was researching about a Career in Teaching Yoga, when I came across:

Shakti Manocha's take!

Shakti Manocha invested 15 years & 5 months in Teaching Yoga. Shakti Manocha has worked in Teaching Yoga as Yoga Teacher in Independent Practice. In Shakti Manocha's own words, this is how Shakti Manocha got into Teaching Yoga: "After completing my schooling from St Mary, Dehradun, I did a Diploma Course in Yoga and have been teaching Yoga since 2003." I searched Shakti Manocha on Google and found this profile:

Career Video on Teaching Yoga

In a video, Shakti Manocha has talked about various aspects of a Career in Teaching Yoga. Shakti Manocha started by explaining Teaching Yoga as: "Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India" I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Teaching Yoga and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Teaching Yoga. Shakti Manocha touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Yoga Education
  • Human Anatomy
  • Diet & Ailments
  • History of Yoga
  • Human Psychology
90% success in real life depends on Skills. It is crucial to understand these.
Shakti Manocha then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Teaching Yoga:
  • Communication
  • Fitness
  • Caring Approach
  • Motivational Ability
  • Innovation
  • Patience
This Career has an interesting list of Positives.
Shakti Manocha believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Teaching Yoga:
  • Limitless Area
  • Monetary Potential
  • Giving Life to Society
  • Personal Fitness
  • World Wide Acknowledgement
  • Affordable Education
After a discussion on Positives, Challenges complete the caricature of a Career.
And, Shakti Manocha believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Teaching Yoga:
  • Designing the Regime
  • Handling Different Age Groups
  • Keep Yourself Fit
  • Dealing With Low Esteem
  • Finding an Appropriate Location
  • Understanding People's Strength

In the final section of the video Shakti Manocha talks about How a day goes in a Career in Teaching Yoga. This video is by far the best video on a Career in Teaching Yoga, that I have ever come across. To see the full Talk, one needs to install the LifePage Career Talks App. Here is a direct deep link of the Video:
