As committed yoga teachers and yoga teachers in training, we will continually invest time in nurturing our learning through yoga trainings, workshops and study. It is important to continue on a learning path and to track our yoga studies.
A critical part of yoga teaching success is the ability to maintain humility and keep the mindset of a yoga student. Even when we are labeled as the teacher and stand at the front of the yoga room we are still the student.
This is why I developed the Yoga Study Tracker as a way of documenting, logging and keeping track of your study and teaching hours.
During the course of your yoga career, you will have the opportunity to study and practice with many different teachers from different yoga disciplines. As your teaching and personal practice evolves, so will the areas of practice you are drawn to studying in more depth.
A study tracker, like your yoga teaching mission statement, is an important document. This is the document that you will constantly update and revise as your learning and teaching career progresses.
You may wish to track continued education unit (CEU) hours for your Yoga Alliance membership. Or, you may want to keep track of your studies and time & financial commitment to your yoga career.
A simple way of keeping track of all of the trainings, workshops, online studies and retreats in which you invest your time, money and energy.
Yoga study comes in many forms. Not just face to face learning but online learning options that are now available to us. It’s so easy to forget or overlook learning experiences that influence our yoga practice and teaching.
I created this study tracker as a simple way of to log all of the trainings, workshops, online studies and retreats in which you invest your time, money and energy.
It allows you to keep track of your study hours and distinguish those hours that are yoga alliance eligible.
It is also a very useful document to refer to when updating your resume and bios. Or for use on your blog or website.
The study tracker is also a very useful resource for personal information you will need if you are leading workshops and trainings yourself.
The study tracker is a two page document. The first page details your study and training hours. The second page is a breakdown of your own teaching hours & yoga related memberships & subscriptions.
Make your study tracker a part of your yoga teaching folder and file with your certificates, mission statement and class plans.
Take a look for yourself on my etsy store, yogaskinnystudio, and get your instantly downloadable study tracker. A permanent and super useful record of all of your yoga hard work!
