You will do well, in New York, as a graduate of a Yoga teacher training school from India. This is an excellent opportunity and a valuable point you will want to make in all of your marketing materials.
The first questions an ashram or health club, in the States, will ask is: Did your Yoga school issue you a diploma and if not, which Yoga training school did you graduate from?
It is best to gather any papers you can now, including reference letters from your teachers and/or guru. These credentials will be very important once you get here and seek job opportunities as a Yoga instructor. Once you get here, you may want to contact the Yoga Alliance to enhance your existing Yoga credentials. With your present training, you should easily meet the standards to become a registered Yoga teacher.
You do not have to be a registered Yoga teacher in the U.S. or Canada, but it is an extra credential that helps open doors.
Lastly, you may want to get our Yoga Business pack. Included are business and marketing materials that will help you get started teaching Yoga with little or no overhead. This will put you on the “fast track” to success, as a certified Yoga teacher.
