200 HR RYT ProgramRequirements for the YogaFit 200 Hour Yoga Fitness Instructor Training

The following Trainings comprise the fitness instructor trainings you are required to complete in order to qualify for YogaFit’s 200-hour Yoga Alliance-approved Training Program. To ensure your request form is processed in a timely manner, please retain copies of your Certificates of Completion for each of the following mandatory training programs.

 

Mandatory program components:

 

*YogaBack is day 1 of Therapy I and YogaProps is day 1 of Restorative. If you plan to take Therapy I or Restorative in the future, you will want to choose other One Day Workshops.

All of our fitness instructor trainings require homework and/or home study that include the remaining non-contact hours required by Yoga Alliance. In addition, the following must be turned in at the time you apply to YogaFit for RYT completion/approval.

 

Mandatory Homework – This will be assigned at your Level 4 Training:

  • One-Page regarding what you feel/think is the most important lesson presented in the Bhagavad Gita (p.58 Level 4 Manual).
  • One-Page identifying 3 Gita passages that each poetically express the essence of a sutra (p. 58 Level 4 Manual).

 

NEW RYT 200 LEVEL CHOICES!

YogaFit requires that you attend two of the following One Day Workshops to complete your RYT 200 Training: YogaBack, YogaProps, YogaFit Sweat, YogaLean and YogaLean II. Please see new course descriptions on the  following pages.

QUESTIONS?

1) I have completed all required trainings, but haven't yet applied for my 200-hour RYT YA Certificate with YogaFit. What do I need to do?

Locate the Certificate Request Form in your Level 4 Manual. Fill it out and attach all required documents listed. If you are missing a certificate, but you know the date and city you took the training, just write that information in on the Certificate Request Form included in your Level 4 Manual.

 

2) Is a retrain of Level 3 still required?

No, but you are welcome to retrain Level 3 for the low retrain price of $149.00 (assuming your initial Level 3 training was taken within last 24 months).

 

3) I received my YogaFit Yoga Alliance 200-hour Certificate of Completion. What now?

The process to become a RYT is entirely web-based now, but still a simple endeavor. The following information will instruct you on how to become a Registered Yoga Teacher via Yoga Alliance’s website: www.yogaalliance.org

Once on the site, hover over the Credentialing link for the drop down menu and select How to Register. On this page there is an instructional video of the registration process. Below the video are the 6 steps necessary for RYT registration.

If at any point in the process you are in need of assistance, contact the Yoga Alliance directly at (888) 921-9642.

 

4) What is the difference between RYT and E-RYT?

200-hour RYT - RYT status is having completed a qualifying 200-hour YA program and become registered with Yoga Alliance as a 200-hour RYT. RYT pertains to regular instructors. E-RYT - (Experienced RYT) is having completed everything necessary for RYT PLUS having taught for, at least, two years, AND, at least, 1000 hours AFTER having met the 200-hour RYT standards. This pertains to Teacher Trainers.

 

5) Hooray! I now have my RYT and want to know about what the CEU requirements are. Can you clarify this for me?

  • To receive credit toward contact hour CEUs, programs must be a minimum of two (2) hours in length
  • Contact CEUs must be instructed by one of the following:
  1. E-RYT 200 and 500; or
  2. RYT 500 ; or
  3. Instructors of Anatomy & Physiology and Yoga Philosophy/ Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers must have equivalent training and experience in these topics (at least 100 hours of documented education and/or experience).

 

Existing CEU Requirements for Each Three Year Period, effective January 1, 2004, require that a RYT must:

  • Teach a minimum of 45 classroom hours of yoga.
  • Accumulate 30 Continuing Education Units including 10 contact CEUs.

YogaFit's Mosaic programs include workshops that qualify for Yoga Alliance CEUs.

 

6) Can I combine YogaFit Training hours with my training and workshop hours from other trainings to achieve my YA RYT 200 hour status. Is that still an option?

The RYT 200 Independent Study track option expired January 1, 2006. Since this date is passed, the Independent Study Track Option is no longer an option. Someone wanting to obtain RYT status must go through one Yoga Alliance approved school (RYS) and can not combine trainings for different schools.
