Technology enables us to do amazing things; connect with others around and across the globe, create friendships and colleagues with people we may never even meet face-to-face, and stay on top of the latest trends and information in any field imaginable. Within the field of yoga, the Internet has made it easy for yoga teachers to take courses, train, connect and interact through online yoga communities.
Yoga teachers can network, ask questions, get answers, learn more about specific disciplines, grow as teachers, and so much more. Online yoga communities are giving yoga instructors the chance to improve without ever leaving their home.
Aura Wellness Center is an example of a thriving online yoga community. At Aura’s Yoga teacher community, yoga enthusiasts and teachers can sign up for weekly newsletters, join in forum participation, listen to pod casts, participate in the blogs, or watch lectures and workshops on a variety of yoga topics. Aura Wellness Center provides a wealth of topics to browse, and the website is user-friendly, allowing you to search for what you are looking for. There is no yearly fee to join, and Aura Wellness Center is a daily contributor of articles that Yoga teachers can read or share with their students for free.
At Aura’s Yoga teachers forum, is a specialized forum site for yoga teachers. You can sign up for free, and then create your own profile, where you can spotlight yourself by entering your opinions, research, papers, and your writings. Search the forum to look for yoga-related jobs, read about others who have become yoga teachers, and access other resources for yoga teachers. Aura Wellness Center really puts the emphasis on the people in the community, giving them opportunities to chat through the forum, and free advertising of many events including workshops that are for yoga teachers and serious practitioners.
Online yoga teacher communities can give all yoga instructors the opportunity to connect with other professionals. If you are teaching yoga in a remote area, perhaps you don’t have the chance to meet with others in your field on a regular basis. Talking and sharing ideas with others is one of the best ways to become a better yoga teacher, to feel good about yourself as a yoga instructor, and to give back to the community of yoga in general. Since there are so many online communities to choose from, take a look around and decide which one is best for you. Avoid signing up for too many sites, if you feel this might just become overwhelming. Instead, find the one that fits your needs and go for it.
