There are many factors, which affect our choices in choosing the right Yoga teacher training program. We could join an onsite program, at an exotic resort in Bali, but what about our responsibilities? Obligations at home, on the job, or in college, are also part of our decision-making process in choosing the best Yoga certification program.

Consider this: If you took a solo vacation whenever you wanted – would you be employed, would you finish college, or would you have a family waiting for you, when you came home again? We all know someone who lives life to the beat of their own drum. This is fine, but we should not expect our employer, family, relationships, and obligations, to stay on hold.

Now, if we are financially independent, and we have no obligations or relationships to hold us back, then we can take a solo vacation any time we please. There are windows of time, in our lives, when we do not have obligations or relationships.

There is also the drain on your finances to be considered. How much are you prepared to invest in an onsite certification program? Will you be able to recover your investment in the next year, or will you be paying for it the rest of your life? These questions may not seem Yogic, but you are the only one who finances your education.

We have come full circle. Obligations and finances are part of life, so we have to consider them any time we make an investment. The goal of becoming a certified Yoga teacher can be taken in small steps; it is just a matter of putting your plans into action.
