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. 

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.

What you will learn

  • 46 fundamental YogaFit poses needed to teach an inclusive, well rounded, and safe yoga class to students for all ages, fitness levels, and experience
  • The physical execution, transitions, and modifications for each pose to ensure that it is safe and effective for every body type
  • To create dynamic vinyasa sequencing and flowing class formats based on YogaFit’s three-­mountain class structure
  • To use transformative language to communicate how each pose connects the mind and the body
  • To teach what you’ve learned within a nurturing and supportive classroom setting
