In a 200-hour yoga teacher training, students are taught the physical practice – asana, basic anatomy and philosophy, an introduction to the business of yoga and various other set topics. One of the most important aspects of being a yoga teacher, is knowing how to hold space. But there is no set curriculum for teaching this within a typical 200-hour training.
Holding space includes, your intentions for the practice, your prayers for the students, and your ability to work with the energy in the room. When you do learn how to do this, your teaching will transform you and others. And when you connect with the teacher who has cultivated this quality….you will know.
