And now you have successfully completed your RYT yoga teacher training 200 hours certification in Dubai, here are few guidelines.
If you have made your mind to start teaching immediately after the completion of course, there are few things you should do before you can legally teach yoga in Dubai, UAE. You should enroll yourself with the Registry of Exercise professionals (REPs). There are various categories of Trainers in Dubai and REPs classify you as a Level E Yoga Instructor. As of today there is only this category for all Yoga instructors Irrespective of whether you are a RYT 200 or RYT 500. REPs will ask for a First Aid qualification certificate as an additional requirement. You can do first aid course from any of the UAE government approved First Aid training providers.
After you get the REPs card, make a catchy profile of yourself, detailing the style of classes that you will offer, your qualifications and few pictures of you in poses. Let your profile be more visual. Do a research on the studios and Gyms which offers yoga in your locality. There are two types of yoga happening in Dubai, UAE. One is exclusive yoga studios and another one is fitness centers like Fitness First / Gold Gym Etc.
If you want to work as part time yoga instructor , Fix an appointment with the studio manager or Group exercise manager ( in gym). When you meet them provide copies of your Certification, REPs card, your profile, Occupational Health Card issued form the Municipality of respective Emirate and a copy of no objection certificate form the sponsor of your visa. The manager may ask you to give a trial class to assess you. Don’t hesitate to ask the demography of client base, age group and time for your trail class. Prepare a sequence that fits to that demography and also have a plan B for your class as you may get a different client base. Whatever it is go with full confidence for your trail class and do the best you can.
Wishing you all success for your professional career as a Yoga Instructor !!!
