Our philosophy is simple. The best way to learn about something is to practice and teach it. With our program, you will get plenty of time to practice yoga and teach yoga, both in small group settings and live classes. You’ll also experience Master Classes with Laura Bonanni, and other guest teachers during training. And, unlimited classes are included in your tuition!

You will also build a comprehensive student manual as part of the training. Master class and sequencing breakdowns are included in this material. Additional reading and resource materials will be required to successfully complete this program. And while this program specializes in learning to teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga, you will also have the opportunity to explore other styles.

There will be occasional homework assignments and study outside of the classroom. As required by Yoga Alliance, 180 hours of this program are contact hours where you will be learning directly from Laura Bonanni, E-RYT 200 and other teacher training staff.

Once you complete Fitness Yoga’s 200 Hour Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training Program, you will be eligible to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance.
