Yoga Foundations Specialty Certification

Jul 11 - Jul 128:00 AM—6:00 PM


Yoga Foundations Specialty Certification

Our intensive, two-day Yoga Foundations workshop provides hands-on experience in teaching beginner yoga formats through a breakdown of 20 poses focused on alignment, safety, variations and breathing techniques. In addition to the basics of class formatting, you’ll discuss yoga history through exploration of the 8 limbs, learn the anatomy and physiology of the nervous and respiratory systems, as well as discover ways to encourage and motivate your participants through verbal refinements and inclusive cuing. This certification will provide two sample beginning yoga classes as well as time for practice under the supervision of an experienced yoga teacher.

*Yoga Foundations can be taken as a stand-alone certification to teach yoga classes and/or can be taken as the first course working toward the advanced 200 Hour Yoga Program approved by Yoga Alliance.
