As a beginner in yoga, the best place to start your journey is a 200-hour yoga teacher training program. These yoga teacher training courses will help you build a strong foundation for correct yoga practice for yourself in the future. It does not matter whether you intend to teach or not. Also, consider exposing yourself to different styles of yoga so that you learn more from each style and this helps you to have a range of practice before you specialize in any one style. Some schools may offer courses like the 200-hour multi-style yoga teacher training which will expose you to all the three major yoga styles namely Vinyasa flow, Ashtanga and Hatha yoga.
