- Contact The British Wheel of Yoga (Tel: 01529 306851) They are the Governing Body for yoga in the UK and will be able to give you details of teachers with recognised qualifications in your area.
When contacting a yoga teacher for the first time, here are some tips:
- Any good yoga teacher will not mind being asked about qualifications, experience or insurance. If you are a beginner to yoga it is particularly important that you find a well-trained teacher. Several years for a teacher training course is the norm. Click here for more information about yoga styles and qualifications.
- Ask about fees - they vary widely. Some teachers run classes on a ‘pay as you come’ basis, but many require that you book for a series of lessons. Sometimes, however, teachers will let you come to one lesson on a ‘try out’ basis before committing to a course. Some classes are run through the Local Education Authority.
- If you are a beginner, ask the teacher whether the class you would like to attend would be suitable for you.
- If you have any medical conditions or are pregnant, do discuss this with any yoga teacher whose class you are going to attend, as well as your doctor.
- Different teachers have different approaches to teaching yoga. Some classes are physically demanding, others very gentle. Some are more mindful and meditative than others. Some include chanting and specific breathing exercises, others do not. If you don’t get on with one teacher’s style, don’t be put off - do try another.
