Is it necessary to select different yoga teachers for learning different yoga forms?

Namaskar Roy,

The short answer is: "yes." Here is an example: You cannot learn Kundalini Yoga from a certified Power Yoga instructor, who has no formal training in Kundalini. Some Yoga systems are so different from each other that each form of Yoga is much like a specialist course.

Yoga teacher training courses can differ in content due the fact that each style is unique and some styles have little or no physical movement in the typical practice. Ashtanga Vinyasa is based upon many aspects, but most of us visualize dynamic flowing sequences. Yet, Bhakti Yoga may have no structured movement in a session.

Aum Shanti,

Paul

Teacher training requires specific knowledge, which aligns with the style learned. This is the reason why one may take a foundational 200-hour course and follow it up with a specialist or advanced course at a later date. One course is never the end all for a teacher's education. If you have a teacher with diversified knowledge, it is possible to learn two or more styles from the same teacher.

I agree with you Yogivini. If you are eyeing on teaching a specific type of yoga, after taking the foundation 200- hour course you can direct your energy towards the type of yoga you intend to teach. Knowing the basics set your foundation in learning the intricacies of other yoga types.

The truth is some of us who teach may understand a few styles, but we may truly master one of them. The old saying: "Jack of all trades, but master of none," applies to many subjects including yoga. It is very difficult to master more than one style.

I am a yoga instructor and want to share my yoga knowledge here in this platform. If you want to learn yoga, then i must prefer you to join Yoga Teacher Training in India where you will learn deep aspects of yoga.
