Yoga Teacher

Working at a health club or leisure centre, a Yoga Teacher conducts regular yoga classes for groups and individuals, working with postures (asanas), movement, breathing and awareness for exercise, relaxation, health and meditation. As a Yoga Teacher you'll design course and lesson plans, teach a wide range of yoga asanas and breathing techniques, and assess students' progress. You may also work with one or many 'styles' of yoga, placing an emphasis on physical exercise, relaxation, or visualisation and meditation.

To work as a Yoga Teacher you'll need to be trained and experienced in Pilates fitness applications and have experience of movement and exercise work. Certification is not essential but desirable, and certification programmes cover training in a range of Pilates practices, including mat and equipment-based components. (Courses that include entry into the Register of Exercise Professionals will improve your chances of employment.) As a Yoga Teacher you should be patient, caring, professional, interested in people and able to motivate individuals and groups.
