Mandatory program components:
*YogaBack is day 1 of Therapy I and YogaProps is day 1 of Restorative. If you plan to take Therapy 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.

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.
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?
Please mail a copy of the certificate to Yoga Alliance with your YA RYT application and fee. It takes about 3-6 weeks to process. Please do not mail copies of all your individual YogaFit Certificates to Yoga Alliance - you just need to mail your YogaFit-issued 200-hour Certificate, their application form, and processing fee.
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?
Existing CEU Requirements for Each Three Year Period, effective January 1, 2004, require that a RYT must:
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.
