Questions to Ask a Yoga Teacher

What yoga training do you have?

Yoga teachers can be certified by certain schools of yoga where the training can vary from one week to a few years.

What yoga experience do you have?

Although a teacher may not be certified, he or she may have many valuable years of teaching experience.

Are you able to accommodate any physical limitations that I have?

If your problems are serious, you should consult your doctor before practicing yoga.

Yoga attracts many people as a means of relaxation. Common methods of relaxing, such as watching television or chatting with friends, serve more as a distraction than a means of achieving complete relaxation. Yoga teaches your body and mind to relax completely by consciously releasing both physical and mental tension. You can achieve this relaxation through the practice of yoga poses, breath awareness and relaxation techniques. In fact, relaxation is so important in yoga that a portion of every practice should be entirely devoted to relaxation.
