Deciding to register onto a Yoga Teacher Training, or indeed, embark on a career as Yoga Teacher is an important and big step. It is our heartfelt mission to support you fully along the teaching path.
Of course, learning and education goes both ways and as with all training, the more energy you put in yourself, the greater the reward and your learning.
As a prerequisite to the training you should have at least one year’s consistent Yoga practice.
We highly recommend that you attend a number of classes or a workshop with one or more of the core faculty - Dyana, Vincent, Neal or Karla. This is so you have a clearer idea as to how we teach, our approach, the teaching principles and so on.
Books to read before, during and after the course
We strongly suggest that you do some preliminary study before the start of your course. On this page are listed some books that you are required reading for the course. Whilst you can read these during the course, reading beforehand will help you prepare well for the training.
We do of course provide participants with a course manual which contains much of the core content of the training - it becomes a great resource for students’ future career as a Yoga teacher.
On all training courses with Contemporary Yoga you have access to our ever growing library of books, which you may read during the course, in breaks, and even take home with you between course dates.
Below are some of the books that we have in our library and others that we also highly recommend too, as a way to continually build your ongoing resources that will serve you well as a Yoga teacher.
