Every human needs a person who would understand his/her inner situation. There might be some times when your body might not support the work you are doing. At that point, you need someone who would act as a friend as well as a teacher to guide you.

If your yoga trainer is a very supportive and understanding person who gives you honest advice then trust me he/she is the one who can show you the path of glory.

• Nutritionist

Eating habits are something that solemnly affects your body’s growth. Your body reciprocates to that every stuff that you intake. Proper guidance can help you to improve your body in a better way.

If your yoga teacher has a better understanding of the anatomy of your body and knows well about its functioning then he/she can give you advice regarding your eating habits.

It depends on the teacher how she/he creates an environment for the students to learn. A clean environment is always a need when you want to go for yoga. No matter if they have practised a lot but if they fail to present themselves before you then everything goes into vain.

• They show their mistakes

Everyone learns from mistakes. Not everyone dares to show his/her mistakes. However, mistakes are something that can teach us things very firmly.

If your teacher tells you about the mistakes that they have done while their learning period then trust me you have found the right mentor for yourself. When you from their mistakes you understand things in a better way.
