How do I find a good Yoga teacher?
Here are a few suggestions on how to evaluate a yoga teacher:

  • Inquire if the yoga teacher has ever worked with people with spine problems.
  • Ask how the person trained as a yoga teacher, and if they have taken any additional courses on yoga. Many yoga teachers have undergone advanced training and course work in this area.
  • Some people feel more comfortable observing a yoga class before deciding to participate. This allows one to determine if there are other people in the yoga class at about the same level of fitness level, if the yoga teacher takes the time during class to help individual students, and if the students in the yoga class appear to enjoy it and leave feeling energized yet relaxed.

After the 7 day or 12 day course, the user may continue the exercises as per their own schedule.
