A good Yoga course for teachers should never be a quickie weekend intensive. Did you think that yoga instructor training was all about 12 to 20 asanas? There is much more involved when you decide to become a top notch yoga instructor. Yoga is not an exercise class.
But let's give yoga exercise some credit here too! The asanas can't be learned in a weekend either. You can learn something, but it's like taking a bucket of water home from the beach and claiming to know about the ocean. You would learn something from that bucket, but you learn more by studying for life.
Would you learn the keys to avoid injuring students in a weekend??? Would you learn how and when to assist? Would you learn the eight limbs? Do you know what I'm talking about?
On the physical end - There is a risk of joint injuries and muscle strain. A good yoga teacher training course will help you to spot instances where you could push students too far. Aura Wellness Center has a saftey conscious YTT program and it takes months to complete, but it can be done.
A good yoga instructor training program isn't for everyone. If you're in a hurry to hurt your students you should get involved in another career. Maybe you can teach boxing instead.
