Toronto October 2019 Mind Body Fitness Conference

I think the big thing with a Mind Body Fitness Conference is that you get the feel of what YogaFit is all about. You get to be surrounded by hundreds of other teachers and you can learn so much from the diverse set of people.

- Shehla, Level 1 alum

Join a rich and diverse population of yoga enthusiasts, from seasoned teachers and experienced yogis to first-timers and everyone in between at YogaFit's Mind Body Fitness Conferences. These four-day immersion gatherings, held at hotels and retreat centers throughout North America, offer plenty of opportunities to dive into all aspects of yoga practice. Each day brings a full menu of YogaFit teacher-training courses and workshops, morning master classes and evening programs, and one-on-one time with YogaFit Master Trainers. Brand new to yoga? No better place to start your journey than at a YogaFit conference, where you can take as many classes as you like, try a variety of teachers, learn new techniques, share ideas with those already on the path, and meet tons of new friends.
