Frequently Asked Questions
What is YogaFit® and how is it different than "traditional yoga?"
YogaFit® is specially designed for fitness environments and health club participants. All physical yoga is hatha yoga. Hatha means “hot and cold” balance, and yoga means to join or to “yoke.” YogaFit® is modern fitness yoga that intertwines fitness moves with basic yoga postures in a heat building and flowing sequence leading to relaxing stretches and a 10 minute rest. The fitness environment provides many challenges that can be overcome with the YogaFit® style:
Most health clubrooms are cold and air-conditioned – The YogaFit® style heats the body sufficiently through its heat-building flow, which then creates a safer, more effective environment for the participants. This gradual heat-building helps reduce incidence of injury. In a health club setting, there is a constant flow of new people mixed with regular students. The YogaFit® style allows the instructor to challenge the more seasoned students while creating a safe, accessible workout for the newer students at the same time.
How do I receive my Level 1 certificate?
Upon completion of the initial Level 1 training, trainees are required to teach 8 hours of community service classes to a group of people that are not currently being served by the Yoga community; i.e. seniors, children, people with disabilities, cancer patients, those living in homeless shelters, corporate executives, etc.
Trainees then need to complete the Certificate Request Form online and upload two letters:
1) a verification letter from a participant or the organization where the 8 hours of community service were completed verifying the dates/times that the classes took place and
2) a personal letter detailing the community service experience.
How can I use the name YogaFit® for my club's classes?
Currently, YogaFit® Studios are the only ones licensed to use the name YogaFit®.
You can advertise yourself as a yoga instructor who has trained with YogaFit® but unfortunately you cannot use the YogaFit® name in any other way, as it is trademarked. That means, you're not able to advertise your classes as YogaFit® classes.
How do I become a trainer for YogaFit®?

Will I be a "certified" yoga instructor after attending the Level 1 training?
After you attend the Level 1 training and complete the community service requirement you will receive a certificate of completion. You can then say that you are Level 1 - trained by YogaFit. There really is no such thing as “certification” for yoga teachers. However, there is a “registration” option that provides proof of a minimum standard (RYT designation provided by Yoga Alliance).
How long do I have to complete the 8 hours of required community service?
You have 12 months to complete the 8 hours and provide proof. In the meantime you are welcome to register and participate in the next level of training.
