The Pros and Cons to Taking Yoga Teacher Training Online
Posted: Nov 23, 2018
The revival of the ancient science of Yoga has given the subsequent era a new ray of hope for all those waiting to experience life in the most fascinating way. Today, the popularity of Yoga is on an all-time high with Yoga courses being conducted in almost all cities of the world. In addition to the significance of Yoga in regulating the physical and mental health of a person, the spiritual science has become the first choice for a vacation.
Since learning the science of Yoga is the new trend in the town and many aspiring yogis do not get time to travel to a fascinating place, they prefer taking an online course. Thanks to the goodness of technological advancement, we have the pleasure of becoming an RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) with an online Yoga teacher training. There is no doubt that the online courses are valuable but nobody can deny the drawbacks it brings. Let’s discuss the pros and cons of attending Yoga teacher training in Thailand online as well in any other part of the world.
Schedule the training program according to you
The beauty of an online class is that you can plan it as per your timetable. It is the best way to learn the beautiful theories of Yoga during free time, on weekdays. Online classes are the most favorable to those aspirants of Yoga who do not want to compromise with their current job and become a Yoga teacher at home. If you are not free in the morning, you have the option to play the training video in the evening. You can enjoy his/her lifestyle in accordance with your own choice and include the training schedule as per the timings that suit you.
Can repeat the same teachings easily
In online training courses, a trainee has the freedom to repeat the training film again and again without any inconvenience. During a training program, there come moments when you are not able to grasp some of the theories properly. Continue on the same topic until you understand it completely. Many a time, when you are closing to the end of the training, there are chances that the previous chapter may not have been comprehended by you properly. You can learn that by replaying the training. In the lap of technology, go deeper into the science of Yoga with online training.
No one to one interaction with the teacher
Nothing can beat the experience of a face-to-face interaction with a teacher. The chances of being energized and active take a leap when you are practicing the beautiful exercises of Yoga in front of a Yoga teacher in a Yoga center. Be it a Yoga teacher training in Thailand or India or any part of the world, when you attend a class physically, you are guided and advised by the yoga teachers which is a different experience. This privilege is not available to an online Yoga aspirant. There is no heart to heart connection with the instructor. You also get enlightened about additional theories about yoga while spending moments with a trainer.
Addiction to technology
Yoga is about falling in love with nature and spiritual elements, not about getting addicted to the world of technology. While you are attending an online class, you are going too close to technology and there are chances that this may take your love for this impure modern world to a new level. When you are attending a Yoga retreat in Chiang Mai, the bond that a student creates with his fellow aspirants and the charm of luscious nature cannot be witnessed on screen.
Yoga lets you find beauty in everything. A Yoga TTC in ashram and online Yoga course, both have something positive depending on the priorities of a Yoga lover.
