could some/many people outline what they learned in such training? The consideration to teach Yoga has risen in my mind occasionally, so I’d like to know what the actual contents are. I had looked at outlines, and these include all sorts of stuff which I, in my arrogancy believe to not need. I have seen some videos of teacher training, for example - one of the best I saw - the Anatomy for Yoga by Paul Grilley, and even though it was great, the only thing I got out of it that I could not provide me with via books, was how he demonstrated stuff on the actual bodies of students.
So what I am particularly interested in is: What do you learn there, that you cannot learn from a book or DVD? Do you get to work with actual people’s bodies a lot? How much? And how much is it about someone standing in front of a class talking? You know, like 10% : 90% or 50 : 50 or whatever.
I had seen (not completely, cuz it’s 10.000 hours long) a set of lectures by Andrey Lappa (Universal Yoga), and while I found it interesting, I (like me myself, who is a good autodidact) could learn most of it from books. For example would I not need anybody to explain scriptures to me or the theory of anatomy or why and how some Asana has this and that effect.
I am particularly asking because there is not even a single Yoga-studio where I live, not to mention no training available, so studying a pile of books and then attending to something like a weekend course might be a good idea for myself. I am, though, not planning on doing this anytime soon, maybe in a couple of years, and the idea would be to go on holidays with the fam and grab a couple of hours of training of how to work with people and their individual anatomy and/or problems.
