Important Aspects Of Yoga Instructor Ethics
Every time a disciple consults a yoga instructor course, they subconsciously set some standards on their tutor to achieve.

The code to become an efficient yoga instructor is simple. Keep it humble and honest. It’s a fact that students will always look up to their teachers in every moment of their learning. It happens irrespective of age and class. It’s just a simple trust between a disciple and a tutor.

Being a student, everyone expects their teacher to be honest and real to ask if something fascinates them to know. This modulation of answering with patience every time is what differentiates a good yoga instructor from the crowd.

Every time a disciple consults a yoga instructor course, they subconsciously set some standards on their tutor to achieve. Fortunately, if they met them, there’s could be a significant reason for staying happily, or else the potential of losing disciples is inevitable.


Ethics in yoga instructor training is nothing necessary. They are just moral essentials for being both a better human and a better teacher. When a yoga instructor embraces the lifestyle of yogic devotion, there’s nothing more they can do about it. The rest will follow in flow.

There are some guidelines regulated by the Indian yoga association and other world yoga council to draw a fine line that differentiates a yoga instructor from others. These standards are set to follow if anyone embarks on a journey to become a certified yoga instructor. Every guideline will help better in teaching with compassion, patience, generosity, helpfulness, and forgiveness. If ever a student felt confident in learning, it’s because their tutor influences them and vice versa.


Eyeing from the disciple’s perspective, yoga instructors can only refine their teachings only when they acknowledge and understand the real complexion of their disciples. The journey of every student is different. Some join for fun, some to learn, some to heal, some to detox, some to connect, some to cleanse, and some just join because they are forced to. That concludes, observing from every perspective helps in interacting better with everyone to teach the best which is required for them.

The most beautiful thing about being in a yoga instructor course is that you are outright dealing with the same person who is you a while before. With focus and determination, there will be sheer progress in your practice when you embrace it with a purpose. The purpose of finding yourself in it by rooting the subject to the core.

Yama, niyama and other responsibilities

The five Yama and niyamas to follow are:


  1. Satya — truthfulness in nature
  2. Asteya — non-stealing with any subject or object
  3. Ahimsa — non-violence in any act
  4. Bramhacharya — celibacy
  5. Aparigraha — non-possesiveness


  1. Saucha — purity in everything
  2. Svadhyaya — self study to find the real you
  3. Santhosha
  4. contentment
  5. Tapas
  6. discipline to adopt
  7. Ishwara pranidhana — surrendering to divinity

The other ethical that differentiates a qualified yoga instructor from other are..

  • Empowering everyone with everything you have. All are equal identities under one roof. Holding against one and being kind to others will never make anyone a moral personality to look up to.
  • Trust is the primitive factor that drives every emotion with ease. Service but never act.
