Teaching Is A Great Responsibility.

By Javier Fuller

Teaching is a great responsibility. And teaching yoga is still greater a responsibility!

The ordinary teaching is to sharpen your intellectual abilities. In yoga, your efforts are to break the mind-barrier, transcend and seek entry to the zone of silence. So, very high skills are required to equip one’s self to become a yoga teacher.

You will find many types of yoga teacher training courses. But remember, being a Yoga teacher is not for everybody. The dedication for the cause of yoga should be of the highest level.

A good programme of yoga teaching needs to include yoga philosophy, yoga history, yoga postures, breathing exercises, pranayama and meditation! The duration of the course may vary between 2 weeks to two years depending upon the objective and the convenience of the person. His own goal to be precise!

For, yoga is both health giving and peace giving. There are specific yoga asanas for specific ailments. But the final aim of yoga is union of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness. This of course can not be achieved within two weeks or two years. Honestly speaking, there is no specific time limit to learn the yoga. It depends upon immutable laws governing the spiritual arena.

An authentic, long-term and ideal Yoga Teacher Training Programme should include, Hatha Yoga, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Yoga Sutras by Patanjali. The Yoga Positions, such as Basic Movement and Preparatory Exercises need to be taught. The important movements such as Sun Salutation and Yogasanas in supine, standing and sitting positions and pranayamas need to be taught. On the theory side, lectures on Applied Yoga, Yoga Therapy, techniques for back problems, obesity, heart problems, diabetes, hypertension and stress and digestive disorders need to be taught.

So Raja Yoga, Stress Management Yoga for children and women, Yoga Massage, Structural Yoga Therapy, Osteoporosis and Bone Building and vegetarian cooking will make an exhaustive syllabus for the Yoga Teacher Training Course.

“Silence is the sweetest sound on Earth,” said Mr Boris Pasternak, the Nobel-prize winning Russian author.

“The river taught us to listen with a silent heart, with a waiting open soul,” wrote Hermann Hesse, the German philosopher-author, in his famous work, Siddharth!

These are not mere literary flashes of wit. The Perfect Yoga Teacher, whom we are talking about knows the truth ingrained in such spiritual utterances! The goal of the Yoga Teacher Training Courses should be to create such Teachers!
