Toggle Frequently Asked Questions

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®?

Becoming a YogaFit® Trainer begins by proceeding through a well-structured Apprentice Program. In order to be considered for this program, one must meet the following minimum criteria:

Must have RYT 200 through YogaFit® Training Systems.
Must have a minimum of 5 years of vinyasa yoga teaching experience.
Must reside within 1 hour from a major metropolitan airport.
Must have a valid passport.
Must have a national fitness certification through American Council on Exercise (ACE), OR plan to obtain one if accepted into the program and moved into the Paid Assist category. We do accept CanFitPro for our candidates from Canada.

Interested candidates should send the following information via email to the Apprentice Program Coordinator at train@yogafit.com:

Do you offer canfitpro continuing education credits (CEC's)?

We DO offer canfitpro CEC’s. We are accredited with canfitpro and offer 10% off all trainings to canfitpro members.  Please call 855-607-9742 to register and take advantage of this discount.

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.
