Yoga Instructor | Health and Wellness


Yoga is an ancient Indian practice that focuses on the wellbeing
of our mind, body and spirit.
The science of yoga believes in promoting health by bringing
our body and mind in tune with nature.
It includes several exercises, postures, meditation and
breathing techniques that help to make our body fit while also
soothing the mind.
There are many schools or styles of yoga such as Hatha Yoga,
Iyengar’s Yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Isha Yoga and so on –
based on different founders of the practice and their varying
approaches to Yoga. Each of these styles require different
training.
Whichever the style, all Yoga Instructors have to:
· Understand medical history based on which yoga asanas are
taught
· Guide students into breathing and meditation techniques
and demonstrate asanas and help achieve postures
· Counsel students on food habits, sleep, lifestyle and natural
healing methods
· Motivate students to practice regularly

INDUSTRY GROWTH AND CAREER PROSPECTS
In recent times, high stress levels and poor health have become a common occurrence in our cities. More and more people are
turning to Yoga as a solution. The Government of India declared June 21, 2016 as International Yoga Day and set up a Ministry of
Ayush to promote Yoga both in India and abroad.
With the sudden spurt in private yoga institutes and training centres, a huge demand for Yoga teachers and Yoga therapists has
followed. However, competition is high and an instructor has to be recognized for his teaching skills before he can get steady flow of
students and a premium fee.
