Graduates of The Yoga Bubble Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher Training share their experience of teaching yoga after the Bubble and into the world!! Our course is designed to give you the skills that you need to teach after the course.
One of our graduates, Tamara has set up her own classes but will be moving house soon…maybe to a place near you!?
When did you complete your YTTC at The Yoga Bubble?
I took part in the teacher training from 14th of October to the 10th of November 2018.
How did you feel about teaching yoga before you completed the 200hr course?
Honestly: i had no clue :-) I practiced Yoga before for a couple of years, sometimes more, sometimes less regularly. I am a very active person. I always want to move and don't like to sit still too long. So i decided to come to the Bubble to become a Yoga Teacher. I knew that it will be challenging for me but at The Bubble we learned a lot in a short amount of time. And as you said to us at the end of our teacher training: Don't wait too long, go out and teach!
What advice would you give to people thinking about taking a YTTC?
Just do it! Of course you have to search for the right kind of training that fits you. My advice is to do a lot of research on the internet, on platforms and blogs. Ask your yoga teacher from home for help. I don't think you have to be already a "yoga-pro". In our group there were so many different characters, the levels were different, the age, the motivation etc. but we had so much fun together and helped each other. I really enjoyed the positive dynamic. On some days you may feel like staying in bed longer instead of practicing yoga. But during a teacher training you will get so much energy, self confidence, knowledge and new friends. It's a life changing experience.
What is your favourite thing about teaching yoga classes?
I really enjoy "working" with other people and to help them to feel better and healthier. And I stay fit too :-) For me it is really nice that I can be creative and make my own flows. I hop, and sometimes fall, around in my living room and have a lot of fun creating yoga classes.
When can we join you?! (when and where are your classes?!)
Right now I have two classes, every Monday and Wednesday evening, around my home town in Austria. They started 2 month after i completed my teacher training. But there are some changes coming up: In March I want to move to Tarifa/Spain, so I have to start again with the search for a class and a location. Challenge excepted!
