Yes, a complete Yoga certification course should contain all aspects of Yogic methodology, and there are many. After all, Yoga is the best health maintenance the world has ever known. Your course should cover most, but not all, of the following:

  • Asanas
  • Modifications and Contraindications
  • Yogic Philosophy
  • Anatomy
  • Physiology
  • Kinesiology
  • Alignment
  • Working with Special Populations
  • Teaching Tips
  • Yoga Teacher Ethics
  • Chakras
  • Bandhas
  • Mudras
  • Yamas and Niyamas
  • Pranayama
  • Meditation
  • Relaxation
  • Business Development
  • Communication, Marketing, and Networking

If a course does not come close, you will not feel comfortable in a situation, where a student has asked a question you do not have the answer to. You may, in the process, inadvertently, injure your students due to what you do not know.
