When you’re looking to take a teacher training in San Diego, you might be overwhelmed by the selection. We are lucky to live in a place where we have an abundance of great yoga studios and teachers. With that comes plenty of teacher training programs. These programs are a big investment of both time and money. It’s important to figure out which best yoga teacher training San Diego is for you.
The majority of teacher trainings in San Diego are vinyasa based, which is a very popular style of yoga. The Buddhi Yoga Teacher Training is vinyasa based yet we focus on preparing trainees to teach a wide range of students. Buddhi Yoga is in La Jolla and offers classes for all levels. Our community includes people in their 50’s, 60’s and even older. It’s important for our teachers to know modifications and sequences that are safe for beginners and older people. This is why we have basic level vinyasa classes called slow flow on the schedule everyday. When researching teacher trainings, make sure the lead teachers and the hosting studio are familiar with a wide variety of students, styles and modifications. This way you will be prepared to teach many different people rather than just young and fit students.
It’s important to attend at least one class with the lead trainers. You will be spending many hours with them in a teacher training. The lead trainers for the Buddhi Yoga Teacher Training are Jonathan Old-Rowe and Amanda McCarroll and assisted by Kelly Collins. Email us for a free pass to their classes so you can get a sense of their style. Introduce yourself before class and let them know you are interested in the program. They can answer any questions you may have. If you can’t make it to the studio, try their classes online on yourBuddhi.com, our virtual yoga studio. The first month is free and membership is included when you sign up for their best yoga teacher training San Diego.
When you go to the classes of the lead trainers, look also at the facility hosting the training. Buddhi Yoga has two classrooms so they can dedicate specific space and time to the teacher training. It’s also important to get a sense of the staff and community of the studio. It is one of our biggest goals to make people feel warm and welcome. Taking a teacher training is joining a community. We want trainees to feel like they are part of a family during their program. If you’re local, we hope that you continue to come to our classes for years after your training is completed. This way you have a much better chance of subbing classes and eventually getting a class on our schedule.
