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 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.

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

We don't provide AFAA CEC's. Those who would like to receive AFAA credits for our trainings will need to petition with AFAA.

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.
