I'm a professional yoga teacher, yet I need a certificate. Can I get the paper without undergoing the certification course?
Certification is a process of observation, evaluation, assessment and understanding of a candidate's skills, experience, knowledge and motivation. Notwithstanding your professionalism, it is hard to tell if you meet all certification criteria or not.
Before giving a certificate out, we must get ensured that you clearly understand goals of yoga and how yoga practice correlates with its goals. You need to posses enough knowledge to convey the goals of yoga to your students. You must understand all the various methods, techniques, approaches to safe and effective practice. Not only you should be fit and skillful, you should be able to guide your students to level with you.
Our yoga teacher's certification program is designed with these goals in mind. It is not a training program on one hand. On the other hand though, a professional yoga teacher like yourself might even discover some new facets of the art and science of yoga.
