200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

You have landed here because you showed an interest in becoming a yoga instructor.  That's Great!

I imagine you are curious about my program.  Things like what to expect, and how to sign up. Am I right?  So this page will attempt answer your questions.

What is Yoga teacher Certification?
  • Yoga teacher certification means that you have completed formal Yoga Teacher Training. Your certificate is issued by the Instructor that conducts the training.
  • There is NO state licensure for Yoga instructors in the state of Florida. You do not have to have a teacher certificate to teach yoga in Florida. However, if you want to be a good yoga instructor, you will go through a recognized training program.
What is the National Yoga Alliance?
  • This is a big question. The National Yoga Alliance is a professional organization that is restricted to Yoga instructors that have completed a training program that is approved by the National Yoga Alliance.
  • They operate much like a trade union. There are annual dues, and CEU's required to maintain your membership.
  • There are benefits to being a Yoga Alliance registered teacher. Click here
Do I need to belong to the Yoga Alliance to teach yoga?
  • No
  • Anyone requesting Yoga Certification is asking for a certificate of completion of a Yoga Teacher Training. You do not need a Yoga Alliance membership to get work, unless it is specifically mentioned as a hiring requirement.

Can I sign up for the online portion now and complete the in-person part later?
  • Yes, In fact, that's the way I want you to do it.  It's best to have the homework done before you begin in-person training.  However, if you can't get it done before the training, pay attention to the due dates.  They coincide with your training, and cannot be missed.

  • I will grant 30 hours of Yoga Alliance CEU's for completion of just the homework portion to any Yoga Instructor.
