Transitioning into a Yoga Teacher

One struggle I hear from yoga Teachers when they start, ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ณ๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ฟ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ฒ.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป I donโ€™t have enough experience to list out.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปMy previous job is not relevant to yoga or teaching.

Do you resonate with that?

Twelve years ago I quit my investment banking job and became a full-time mother.

I was a full-time mother for 3 years. And then I transitioned from being a full-time mother to a yoga teacher.

When I got out of Yoga Teacher Training, I felt overwhelmed. ๐Ÿ˜จ

I felt I did not have experience in teaching to apply for a job (more on that later). But even to start on my CV I didnโ€™t have anything to write because my previous experience is not relevant to teaching (and I was wrong).

Yoga Teachers come from different backgrounds, and a lot of times their previous jobs are not teaching-related.

You may not have enough experiences to list out that are relevant to yoga teaching.

The good news is, what people want to see in yoga teacher, besides the knowledge in hard skills in yoga (your yoga certification), soft skills such as communication abilities and a positive attitude can be even more important when studio owners and hiring managers look for in yoga teachers.

Sending a clean and professional-looking resume is a great way to show that you are professional and that you can present yourself.
