About Our Yoga Teacher Training Programs: Do you want to empower your life, and the lives of others through yoga? Have you experienced transformation in Yoga and would like to bring that experience to others? Join an amazing group of aspiring yoga teachers and students who are ready to move deeper into themselves and their own power. In Yoga Teacher Training you will tap into your internal power, connect with your spirit, and learn to become a dynamic and intuitive yoga teacher.
Although you may have a gifted personal practice, guiding a room full of students through a powerful yoga practice with confidence is quite different than practicing yourself. Mastering the ability to communicate and connect with your students is a crucial part of being an effective teacher.
The goal of Yoga Teacher Training is to teach you how to become a dynamic teacher, while at the same time, giving you an opportunity to explore and discover the power within yourself, both as a teacher and as an individual. Our practical training program focuses on how to TEACH yoga, not just the poses.
Our service as teachers is to improve the quality of peoples lives and leave our students in a better place, both mentally and physically. To achieve this requires a deep understanding of how the body works beyond the superficial level. From a modern physiology and functional anatomy perspective, YogaU Teacher Training provides cutting edge techniques such as anatomy study, Alignment Yoga Principles, video review, posture specific workshops, and more, for a comprehensive experience. Having a strong understanding of the way the body functions allows teachers to better understand why postures work the way they do and why the series follows a particular sequence.
Yoga University is an RYS Registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance. All graduates of Yoga University Yoga Teacher Training Programs will be eligible for registration (RYT) with Yoga Alliance® at the 200 &/or 500 Hour Level.

The primary prerequisite is interest in learning the Yoga University approach to teaching Hatha Yoga. It is suggested that students unfamiliar with Yoga University's approach to Hatha Yoga take Alignment Yoga classes at Altamonte Springs Yoga with MyLinda. A complete schedule of classes can be found on the CLASS SCHEDULE page.
Students do not need to be experts in any aspect of Yoga, but they do need to have a well-established Hatha Yoga practice that has been consistent for at least six months. **
Students should have a love of Yoga and a strong desire to pass that love of Yoga on to others.
Students should be in good physical and mental health (minor injuries/illness may be accommodated).
For the 670 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Programs registration with Yoga Alliance at the 200 Hour level is required.
For the 670 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Programsa minimum of 6 months of Yoga teaching experience is required.
**In order to prepare for Yoga Teacher Training program, students need to have had a daily personal yoga practice for an extended period of time. We recommend at least an hour of Hatha yoga every day for six months before the start of the training. During the training, we will be practicing yoga for approximately three hours each day. This can be physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding. Physical fitness acquired through other disciplines does not necessarily provide sufficient preparation. We ask that students have a strong personal Hatha yoga practice to ensure they will be prepared for the high level of activity and the heightened level of energy produced in the body by this intense daily practice of asana and pranayama.
