Founded in Yoga, Grounded in Fitness

Fundamentals

YogaFit Fundamentals is an intensive multi-level workshop designed to immerse you into the world of instructing Vinyasa yoga classes that are as safe and effective as they are inspiring. YogaFit Fundamentals is a six-day face-to-face workshop, where you’ll undertake Level 1, Level 2, and Anatomy and Alignment. YogaFit Fundamentals is made up of the following:


Step 1: Level 1

This informative workshop will give you the tools to create inspiring Vinyasa yoga classes that are founded on flow movement yet grounded in the safety of exercise science. In Level 1 you’ll learn all about:

  • physical execution, transitions, and modifications to traditional yoga poses with an emphasis on effectiveness and safety
  • dynamic Vinyasa sequencing
  • flowing class formats
  • transformative language for communicating the mind/body connection.

Step 2: Level 2

After building a firm foundation in Level 1 teacher training, YogaFit's Level 2 training concentrates on communicating the essence of YogaFit®, both to yourself and your participants. In this interactive two-day workshop you’ll learn about musculoskeletal anatomy and the biomechanics necessary to safely and effectively teach. You will also spend time developing your transformational language skills using positive affirmations, and you’ll discover how to effectively teach all types of learners. You will also learn the power of positive communication, and understand how to use YogaFit® teaching tools to empower your future students. During Level 2 you will explore:

  • the breakdown of 20+ poses, including variations and modifications
  • the principles of verbal adjustments
  • advanced breathing techniques
  • the health benefits of breathing and yoga
  • effective communication techniques
  • emotional intelligence and awareness
  • learning styles
  • power-class formatting
  • introduction to yoga philosophy, the eight limbs and yamas/niyamas
  • anatomy and alignment.

Step 3: Anatomy & Alignment

In this interactive two-day workshop you will learn how to become safer and more effective teacher, by exploring the musculoskeletal anatomy and biomechanics necessary to safely and effectively teach Hatha yoga alignment. In this workshop, you’ll also examine YogaFit's Seven Principles of Alignment (SPA), and explore detailed musculoskeletal and biomechanical principles applied specifically to Hatha yoga postures.


Step 4: Practice teaching/Community Yoga

Around the world, every YogaFit Fundamentals trainee is required to perform eight hours of practice, teaching in a community service setting in order to successfully complete the course. This opportunity enables you to gain precious teaching experience in a less stressful environment, to an appreciative audience.
