Here are some things that you might want to look out for when going instructor-searching.
1. Teaching History – Experience
Well, this one is kind of the most cliched of everything on the list. Everyone is out to get the best for themselves, which is very understandable. But while you’re looking for that age-old yoga instructor, don’t forget that there are people that might be just starting out but are definitely worth a shot.
There is a big difference between being knowledgeable in your field and being a good teacher in that subject. Someone might be the most knowledgeable in a certain subject but know nothing about it, and someone might also be not as learned but be an amazing teacher. It’s vital that you strike the right balance in finding a teacher that is as learned as he is good at teaching. There’s no use trying to run behind a highly accredited instructor that is a very shitty teacher. Your instructor must have the patience to work at your own pace but push you just enough so he doesn’t make you lose interest.
3. Classes and Timings
Most people who conduct classes out of relatively small commercial classes or their homes can be quite understanding in their timings. With smaller batches and more one-on-one interactions, it’s easier for them to come to a common understanding for everyday classes, but not so much in a larger conglomerate chain. Even though these chains have more funding, they are a little stringent in their timings. You should look for classes that give you exposure but don’t compromise too much on the equipment.
This is where Fitato is going to help you out.
This might seem like an obvious promotion, but think about it, where else can you only pay for experimenting with that class?
Where else can you just test the waters by paying for a small number of sessions because you don’t want to commit to that unrealistic, but yet lucrative year-long membership?
Play around with the classes and their instructors around you until you find the perfect fit for you!!
