Become a Yoga Teacher? Why?
6 reasons why you should become a yoga teacher straight from the mouths of our Camyoga teachers
1 - You make a positive difference to other people’s lives
“What I love about teaching is to have the possibility to share knowledge and/or experience with other people so that they too might feel the benefits and happiness it gave me.” Jozef Wiewel
“i like the idea of helping people or influence them in a positive way” Hakan Aydin
2 - Become a yoga teacher - keep fit and healthy and it does not have a retirement age!
“It's probably the one and only job in the world which makes you healthier and happier the more you "work" (with no negative side-effects!)” Andrea Price
“Yoga teaching goes with you throughout your life. I am still teaching 30 years on from my training, and one of my first teachers only retired at 75.” Beverley Nolan
3 - It enriches your own spirit and mind; to be in “satsang” – to learn and grow yourself from other like-minded people
“Teaching enhances one’s own personal development because as a teacher you are forever expanding your knowledge.” Kari Knight
“Teaching is a two-way dynamic, and everyone you meet is unique. I learn a lot from everyone” Beverley Nolan
4 – You become part of a positive and proactive community
“Social connectedness supports us. Practicing yoga in the community in the company of others brings social connectedness. Other benefits include sharing positive energy of love, compassion, kindness.” Kari Knight
5 – As a yoga teacher you can help people to reconnect and re-energize
“To guide and to inspire others that yoga means finding connections and links to all life – life is precious , all beings are worthy, lets make the planet a better place to live on and off the mat “ Andrea Kwiatkowski
“It may sound like a trite FB post, but you have something not only practical but amazing to offer people: a way back to the lived experience of the body” Beverley Nolan
6 – It’s a great and enjoyable job!
“You get to teach something that you love (and have the perfect excuse to do as many yoga courses and workshops as you want)” Paul Fox
So there is it, from the horse's mouth so to speak. Thank you to all the yoga teachers that took part, though I must say I can't believe nobody mentioned the great clothes you get to wear to work (have you seen the leggings they have for sale at the moment?!)

“with teaching comes responsibility , you guide , like the translation of Namaste says- “the spirit of yoga in me guides and honors the spirit of yoga in you” – that in essence is what your ultimate reason should be about” Andrea Kwiatkowski
