Frequently Asked Questions

What is YogaFit®?

YogaFit® is the largest yoga education program in the world. We have trained over 200,000 instructors who have gone on to teach a unique, user-friendly yoga style to clients across the globe. YogaFit® combines traditional yoga and modern fitness techniques, making it a friendly and achievable style for experts and novices alike. At YogaFit® we believe yoga is for everybody and every body.

What type of results can my clients and class participants expect?

Regular yoga practice is good for the mind, body and soul. Practicing yoga regularly can improve health, agility, flexibility, performance and mental alertness. We encourage participants to let go of their expectations to see how the collaboration of traditional yoga and core fitness principles will improve overall fitness and health.

What makes YogaFit® different from other yoga programs?

Unlike some yoga practices, YogaFit® encourages participants to let go of expectation and allow the poses to fit their body (instead of trying to make their body fit the poses). YogaFit® is also unique because it has been specifically developed to be delivered successfully and effectively in a fitness-focused environment.

What do i need to do in order to start teaching YogaFit®?

Once you have completed 6 days of YogaFit® Fundamentals and your 8 hours of community yoga, as long as you hold a minimum Certificate III in Fitness (specialising in Group Exercise), you can start teaching yoga.

IMPORTANT NOTE: each gym will have a different set of requirements for teaching yoga, so if you intend on teaching yoga at an existing fitness facility, it's best to check with your Group Fitness Manager before you sign up for our course.

What if I don't have my Certificate III in Fitness?

You will need to complete the 200 RYT program in order to teach YogaFit® as a stand alone class. For more information, click here.

What else do I need?

We recommend getting insurance. If you are a Network member, you can get insurance from just $99.95 per year. You can get more information here.

Do I need a license to run Yogafit® programs?

Currently, YogaFit® studios are the only ones licensed to use the name YogaFit® . You can advertise yourself as a yoga instructor who has trained with YogaFit® but unfortunately you cannot use the YogaFit® name in any other way, as it is trademarked. That means, you're not able to advertise your classes as YogaFit® classes.

For more info of licensing, please email sales@yogafit.com
