A small proportion of yoga students will commit to decades of study with a senior teacher (such as an Iyengar or Ashtanga practice) or come with a strong interest in mediation and subtle yoga.
However, in the current environment, people come for very physical reasons: body conditioning, detoxification, to lose weight and burn calories; all relating to their bodies and with an 'instant results' mentality. The yoga experience in the Modern World is criticized for being inauthentic.
House Of Om yoga school programs are designed to reach people from those initial expectations but still educate and expand their awareness of yoga and its benefits. All graduates are ready to teach if they wish to, and we believe that although yoga is expanding, the need for well-trained teachers is still very high. With all the problems faced by the modern world we believe this work is critical and that there are so many people out there who need help and safe, effective guidance into yoga. We train teachers to do just that in a clear, non-invasive and tangible way.
