Once all requirements are completed, you will be a certified 200-hour yoga teacher (200CYT) with the ability to teach anywhere you choose. The certification is recognized in all yoga studios, community centers, gyms, and any facility where yoga can be taught. The certification is not limited to the state you took the training in so the sky’s the limit.
In addition, after graduation you can register with the Yoga Alliance if you choose to then become a 200RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher). If you are interested in offering CEU (continuing education units) workshops that would allow others to get credit toward their certification registration, you could also apply to be a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider)
We cover everything needed to be sure you are a qualified, knowledgeable yoga teacher – sequencing, cueing, theming, hands on assisting, teaching methodology, anatomical alignment injury prevention, and yogic philosophy from yogic texts.
But we take it a step further. All of this knowledge will be of little use to you if you cannot get up in front of the room and teach! We make sure you are ready by working with the programming of the mind to be sure that your mindset is dialed in for success.
We keep our class size small so we can personalize each training and meet the needs of all participants.
In addition to offering breathing and meditation practices to help with this mind shift, we also offer coaching on body language and vocal intonation to help you feel even more confident as you teach your students.
Yes! You can contact us anytime through email with any questions, advice or just to talk about future goals free of charge for as long as needed! We are happy to help you in any way we can!
In addition you can sign on for our weekly live-stream yoga class for a special LIYS graduate discount. We also offer a group online mentor meeting to ask questions, share ideas with others and offer suggestions.
We also offer an affordable mentorship program to further your studies. This option is offered both as a 1-1 and group mentorship.
