Fitness Yoga Specialty Certification
Jan 23 - Jan 248:00 AM—6:00 PM$349
The intensive-two day Fitness Yoga Certification provides hands-on experience in teaching multi-level flow-based yoga classes in the fitness center environment. Students will learn multiple regressions and progressions of 15 yoga poses, learn anatomy of the muscular and skeletal systems as it relates to asana demonstration, and learn the basic techniques behind sequencing classes for safety and balance. In addition, students will discover ways to better relate to their audience, communicate with their audience, and create their very own vinyasa based flow practice.
*Fitness Yoga can be taken as a stand-alone specialty certification and/or can be taken as part of the 200 Hour Yoga Program approved by Yoga Alliance.
