As of today, there are endless yoga enthusiasts waiting their turn to grab an opportunity and become an instructor. A certification course in yoga is crucial because of various reasons. Every person has different needs and a different pace. It is important for every instructor to have an in-depth knowledge of all of these aspects. In order to eliminate therisk of accidents and injuries completely, instructors need to have a professional approach towards teaching yoga.

Why is a certification in yoga important?

When a yoga instructor who lacks complete knowledge is in front of a class, not only the instructor but the students as well are put to risk. This might sound a little out of the box but it would not be insane to make yoga internships compulsory before awarding the certification. Practicing and teaching yoga are two different things. For teaching yoga, one needs experience. The instructor has to be able to recognize a student’s issues.

Several other styles of yoga, which require training in other areas to keep students out of harm’s way, have to be integrated in the course.

· Aerial Yoga: This is a new style of yoga, which involves using of a circus hammock, which aids students in the ability to achieve traditional yoga positions. Learning the usage of a hammock and familiarizing self with the style of yoga is important. Yet, there are precautions to be taken. Students with high blood pressure, heart problems, sinus blockages etc. should be screened out. Not all instructors have the required knowledge to guide students in situations like these.

· Paddle Board Yoga: This style of yoga combines a variation of stand-up paddle surfing and yoga. This style of yoga was first introduced in Rishikesh, India. While this is a very interesting and enjoyable style of yoga, it has its own set of precautions. Every instructor who teaches this style of yoga has to be given training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid. Balancing is an essential skill while practicing this style of yoga. The instructor must explain every important detail to aid the students’ safety. To be more enlightened about The Thin Line Between Fun and Negligence visit
