2020 was not exactly what we expected...
And we're guessing that for many of you, you'll be welcoming in a fresh new year with a sigh of relief!
And perhaps, with so much time for reflection in 2020, you've got some great ideas for your New Year's resolutions.
If you're anything like us, New Year's resolutions are great in theory, but they can be really hard to maintain for a whole year - why does it always seem like the same resolutions make it to our lists year after year?! 😿
One thing we learned in 2020 as a global collective is that health matters. We're going to make a wild guess that you knew that already though! That you've been cultivating your practice for a while because you know the benefit of good health. And now, finally, it seems like others are starting to understand that our busy, hectic lifestyles are not serving us. By allowing us time away from our desks, the pandemic has shown us that living in a state of stress has been making us sick, raising our cortisol, and leaving us feeling overwhelmed and helpless.
So what about if you make a slightly more tangible New Year's resolution this year? One that can teach you the tools and the techniques to not only cultivate your own inner peace, but also allow you to get certified to share this gift with others in your community, at a time when it is so very needed?
This is why an online Yoga Teacher Training should be on your New Year's resolution list! Whether you’re further advanced into your yoga practice, or whether you’re just starting out, there are several reasons why an Online Yoga Teacher Training should be on your resolution list.
Why? Ready... Here we go!
You might be surprised that this is the first benefit but hear us out:
First things first, The pandemic has moved Yoga Teacher training courses online, offering schools new and improved ways to offer teachings! For example, with BeWell, you can now:
✅ Take your yoga theory classes as walk-home podcasts
✅ Learn anatomy in an interactive 3D e-learning format
✅ Join live classes for an immersive experience
✅ Re-watch your favourite yoga lab recordings as and when you need them.
What’s more, our online course is flexible enough to work it around your 9-5, so you can train to be a yoga teacher without quitting your day job just yet!
Second, you can take advantage of much cheaper prices. Many yoga teacher trainings have decided to slash costs to reflect the at-home experience, making a YTT much more financially accessible than ever before.
Thirdly, if the reason you haven’t taken a YTT so far is because you’re too shy to join a group in a studio, this is your chance to shine from the comfort of your living room!
If this alone hasn’t got you looking for courses yet, here are more reasons why you might want to use this New Year as an excuse to chase your passions.
Yoga is for everybody, anywhere, anytime
Just as yoga is for everybody, so too is a Yoga Teacher Training. In fact, perhaps you'd be surprised to know that many people join a Yoga Teacher Training with little to no previous experience of yoga!
Although many schools encourage students to try and gain some experience before attempting a Yoga Teacher Training, it is not essential. Everything you need to know about yoga will be taught on the course. And, as an introduction into yoga, you can't get anything more thorough than the YTT!
For those with a passion to learn and an openness to try, a Yoga Teacher Training is available to you, no matter how much or how little experience you have.
You will learn new things about your body
In any thorough Yoga Teacher Training, you will be led through several ‘asana labs’ where you will get to fully dissect different postures – and how your body expresses them. This way, you’ll have a whole new and holistic understanding of the hows and most importantly, the whys of your asana practice.
One of the major benefits of understanding how your body works is that you’ll learn how to avoid inj
