Yoga has become more than a 60-minute practice on your mat, it has started to become your way of life. You’re a military spouse and have heard that MyCAA (Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Scholarship) can be used for your yoga school tuition. So why not take the plunge and become a certified yoga teacher? Here are four reasons why teaching yoga is a perfect career for you:
- Living in the Present: Yoga teaches us present moment awareness, which can create gratitude for what we have right here and now. As a military spouse it can be challenging to let go of the “what if’s” especially when he/she is deployed. Not only will teaching yoga remind you of the present, but now you can offer another tool for other military spouses to cope.
- It’s Portable: You can teach yoga anywhere! No matter how often you move around as a military spouse, teaching yoga is always an option. You can go to local yoga studios, gyms, even set up some yoga classes on base.
- Make New Friends: Teaching yoga is a great way to meet people in your community. As a military spouse, moving is probably going to happen from time to time, and teaching yoga automatically connects you to people face-to-face.
- Giving Back: What better way of serving those who have served our country? As a yoga teacher you can offer the many benefits of body and mind that yoga has to offer.
