This informative two-day workshop gives instructors the tools to create dynamic, user-friendly, fitness-oriented yoga classes. The learning includes correct physical execution, transitions and modifications to yoga poses, sequencing, class formats, effective ways to communicate the mind/body connection, and methods of developing safe teaching skills for 40+ poses. Level 1 is designed for beginners teaching yoga, practicing yoga, and learning yoga. For experienced Yoga instructors, this workshop is designed to offer new skills to teach Yoga classes in the mainstream health club or gym environment, focusing on the physical fitness benefits of traditional yoga poses. There are no prerequisites, only the desire to learn and commitment to attend. The Level 1 includes a hands-on experience guided by a YogaFit Master Trainer, a high-quality yoga mat (first-time participants only), and a comprehensive training manual with numerous poses, class formats and music recommendations.

In order to receive the Level 1 Teacher Training Certificate of Completion, YogaFit requires the Level 1 Trainee to donate 8 hours of practice teaching in a community service setting, bringing the gift of yoga to individuals who would not normally be exposed to yoga on a regular basis. Participants in the YogaFit Community Service program have taught to seniors, children, teens at risk, cancer survivors, HIV patients, handicapped persons, incarcerated individuals and stressed out corporate executives.
