Q: Do you have to have a license to be a yoga instructor?
A: Most gyms and yoga studios require that you have a 200 Hour certification in order to teach. For some gyms and studios, a 200 hour certification is all the credentials you need. Others require you to be registered with the Yoga Alliance or have graduated from a Yoga Alliance approved training.   Some locations may require you to have your own liability insurance as you may be considered an independent contractor.

A: Yes. You do not need to be an expert. People take this certification for many different reasons and that is OK! If you are searching for an understanding of the yogic path, want to understand the postures physically, looking for a change, in search of a new path career wise or in your personal life perhaps seeking a new experience. Imagine the possibilities. 

There are so many different reasons to take this program.

The only requirement I ask, is that you must have the desire. I want you to want to be here! 

There should be yoga available to every person with every needs you can possibly think of.  What ever your road block is, there are other people out there with the same road blocks! Together lets clear the path,  take this journey and remove the obstacles that prevent people in their own mind of why the “can’t” do yoga.  

Are you are looking for active yoga or to sit mindfully in meditation? You can be that someone who can guide others past their fears or obstacles on their yogic journey, however that “looks” to you.  I will encourage you to be your true self in your own way providing the fundamentals and foundations to grow on from the ground up. So you may head confidently in the direction of your dream!

Make this decision to join our tribe with your heart and not your head. Get out of your way! 

Trust you are being called!
