LEVEL ONE: Foundations

The first step on the path toward becoming a yoga teacher or simply deepening your practice, Level One provides the tools to create inspiring vinyasa yoga classes grounded in proper alignment and the safety of exercise science. 

While there are no prerequisites for this course, we do require that all attendees read Beth Shaw's YogaFit prior to attending. This book explains the foundation of our entire teacher training program, and allows for better overall understanding of the material covered in our Level One Training. Please email edu@yogafit.com with any questions about Level One!.  We look forward to seeing you on the mat. 

We are also offering Level One virtually, with live trainings via zoom.  Please click here for the schedule of Virtual Level One Trainings.

Note: In order to receive a Certificate of Completion for Level One, you must also complete eight hours of practice teaching as a community service, in which you bring the gift of yoga, free of charge, to individuals who would not normally be exposed to yoga on a regular basis.

Upon completion of the Level One training and Community Service hours, click here for instructions regarding obtaining your certificate. 

You have one year from the date of your Level 1 Training to complete Community Service and apply for your Level 1 Certificate. We do understand that sometimes life events interfere with our plans. Please email certs@yogafit.com if you find that you may need an extension for completion.

LEVEL FIVE: Unification

Level Five brings together all that you’ve learned in your YogaFit 200‐hour teacher training, and shifts the emphasis from external accomplishments to internal growth. Applying the powerful practice of staying in the present moment, an integral tenet of the essence of YogaFit, this two‐day intensive may be the end of your official teacher training, but it’s just the beginning of your journey inward toward true integration.

Note: All participants are required to complete the Brief Strengths Test, authentichappiness.org, print individual results, and bring these results to the training.

LEVEL FOUR: Tradition 08:00 AM - 06:00 PM

LEVEL FOUR: Tradition

Level Four continues where Level Three left off, exploring more challenging practices and the preparation for each of them. But the real emphasis is on how to weave elements of yoga's ancient tradition into your practice, life, and teaching. This four‐day intensive delves deeper into the Yoga Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, and some of the more esoteric elements of yoga, such as chakras, mudras (hand gestures), and sound.

**Please noteDue to the scheduling involved with Level 4 and 5, requests to transfer out of Level 4 or 5 trainings will result in a $100 transfer fee.

Advanced Ayurveda 08:00 AM - 06:00 PM

Advanced Ayurveda

Ayurveda I offered a strong overview of this ancient holistic self­care practice, often called the sister science of yoga. Ayurveda II provided an opportunity to enjoy practices that enhance your own well being. In this four-­day intensive, which employs a practical, hands-­on learning style, you’ll receive the tools you need to directly apply the theory and principles of Ayurveda to everyday life to better serve you, those you love, and those you coach.

Note: This course fulfills part of the requirements for the YogaFit 100-hour Ayurvedic Coaching Certificate.

Expanding Consciousness: The Yogic Mindset

As yoga therapists and teachers, we hold space and act as guides for our students and clients as they work to create balance in their lives and build a healthier relationship with the challenges they face. In order to be effective healers and therapists, however, we must believe in the limitless ability of our own power to heal. YogaFit’s Expanding Consciousness workshop provides an opportunity to examine our own limitations and fears, increase our capacity for self compassion, and learn to co-create our own reality.
