Why become a teacher?
Teaching any technique or knowledge that uplifts mankind is the most rewarding work possible. Teaching yoga with a clear and systematic approach is exciting because it allows you to help people improve their lives. The Hatha Yoga system is dynamic and scientific, based on precision and alignment of the human skeleton in order to bring harmony and balance to the body, breath and mind. Academy of Yoga training puts you at the forefront of the revolution now taking place in the health industry. Yoga is becoming more popular than aerobics, and the demand for quality, trained teachers has never been higher. Our system is based on the ethical and moral principles of Classical Yoga and is the most practiced style worldwide.
