How do you become a yoga instructor?
To become a yoga instructor, a teacher training that includes coursework in anatomy, physiology, instructional techniques, and yoga philosophy needs to be completed. After the completion of the program, budding instructors can apply for registration by the Yoga Alliance for the Registered Yoga Teacher (RTY) credential. Most professionals in the industry continue to earn educational credits by attending workshops and seminars.
How many calories does yoga burn?
The number of calories burned doing yoga depends on the type of yoga and the length and intensity of the class. According to the Mayo Clinic, a 160 pound person may burn around 183 calories in an hour long Hatha (basic) yoga class. However, the same person may burn 460 calories in a Bikram (also known as hot yoga) yoga class.

How often should you do yoga?
The frequency of yoga practice should be an individual decision depending on personal goals and preferences. The benefits of yoga can be received if practiced every day, but those same benefits can also be received from practicing once weekly or biweekly.
