The question was: "I would like to immerse more into yoga - but I do not teach and do not know if I will. Is then the teacher training a right way for me?"
My answer is: absolutely - join in, you will be very happy.
First, you will be inspired to practice regularly with enjoyment, improve your own yoga practice, and learn good alignment so that you are safe.
You will get a better understanding of the alignment of yoga poses and of what serves your body and what does not. You will get familiar with the different types of yoga poses, what their benefits are, also with general pitfalls and misalignment tendencies, and key alignment principles to use. Together with your insights on how to set up an effective yoga sequence, this teacher training will definitely take your yoga practice to a new level.
Second, you learn to better help yourself and your family.
Yoga asanas can be very therapeutical for all ailments - e.g. for your lower back pain, shoulder issues, digestive problems, anxiety, stress relief etc. In the teacher training, you will learn which yoga poses are helpful and which poses should be avoided for certain conditions. Also, how meditation, breathing and mantras can contribute to that.
Third, it is a fantastic opportunity for you when you are looking to create a spark in your life and to create momentum in improving your health, learning to relax, and starting a program of self-study from the perspective of yoga.
So I hope I have answered the inital question. There are at least three good reasons why you should join in even if you are not teaching yoga. This teacher training will impact your life in a very positive way.
