What is a yoga teacher?
Are they an expert or just someone who has a passion for the art of yoga?
Do you need to know the basics of the art?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you’re in luck.
As of right now, there are over 100,000 yoga teachers in the United States.
In the United Kingdom, there were over 500,000, and in the U.S., there were around 1.4 million.
But according to the U and D Yoga Association, that number is likely much higher.
Yoga is not a new discipline, and its popularity is not unprecedented.
But the number of people learning to be a yoga instructor is on the rise, particularly among younger people, according to researchers at New York University’s Stern School of Business.
According to the Center for Applied Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences (CARHESS), the number in the US has increased by over 20 percent in the last decade.
And that number includes people who have only been practicing yoga for a few months or even a few years.
“The number of yoga teachers has gone up over the last couple of decades, which is a huge thing, and it’s very much tied to social trends, which means that the demand for yoga is increasing,” said Tara Haddad, a research fellow at CARHESS.
But how is yoga taught?
How does a teacher learn to teach?
How do they get people to take up yoga?
These are some of the questions we posed to the experts at the New York City-based yoga studio, Beyond Yoga, who are offering courses and workshops on the art.
“We’ve got to find the right balance between the personal growth and the teaching and also the community growth,” said Lauren DeFoe, the founder and owner of Beyond Yoga.
“It’s about getting people to connect with the practice and get out of their comfort zones, and learn to love the art.”
DeFoe’s company, Beyond and Yoga, is a part of the new class that is offered by the company.
DeFoes class will teach beginner and intermediate students, but she also wants to expand beyond that, offering classes in a variety of areas.
The first of these classes will be taught by yoga instructor, Sara Gabbatt, who has trained with yoga teachers from around the world and is now part of a group that is offering classes for people of all ages.
Gabbatt will teach the first group, which will consist of about five people.
Then she will add a third class of up to 20 students, who will learn more advanced techniques and techniques that are unique to yoga.
Gabbett said the third class will be open to people of any age.
The classes are also open to anyone who wants to participate, and DeFie said she has a few other workshops coming up that will be held in other cities.
But Beyond Yoga has partnered with other companies to offer workshops in addition to its classes.
For example, a new group called Yoga for a Purpose is offering a class called “Beyond Yoga.”
DeFiefe said that this group is open to anybody who wants a break from yoga.
“It’s not about having the best instructor or the best teacher class, it’s about giving back to our community,” she said.
“And we’re really hoping that this can be a way for people to find that.”
What about the money?
Beyond Yoga’s CEO, Shannon Davis, said she was able to find yoga teachers because there was a shortage of teachers in New York.
But DeFeee said it is not about the lack of available teachers.
“This is really about finding the right person,” she explained.
“So we don’t think of the teacher shortage as having to do with our instructors.”
DeFeoe and Gabbott, along with DeFey’s husband, Josh Davis, have created Beyond Yoga for the purpose of providing affordable, quality, and creative training that is accessible to people who might not be able to afford it.
DeFeoe said that Beyond Yoga offers a lot of classes for students of all levels, and she hopes to expand it in other places.
“I don’t want to get into the politics of who can afford it, but it’s really about providing a community that’s inclusive and accessible,” DeFooe said.
DeFoes and Davis also want to encourage students to become certified yoga teachers.
DeFFEE said she wants to be able at some point to open a studio in the city and be able train students who have not yet taken their first class.
But she said that for now, she is focused on providing affordable yoga for people who need it.
“To me, it is so important that we make sure that people are learning the art and having fun with it, and that we are giving them opportunities to do that,” she added.
“That’s something that I want to help create.”
DeFFEE is excited
