200-Hour Teacher Training

OVERVIEW

Citizen Yoga’s 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is a Yoga Alliance-certified program designed around the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual principles of the yoga practice. Throughout the program, trainees will be guided on a journey of self-development as they realize their potential as teachers. Based on a manual developed by Citizen Yoga founder Kacee Must, we’ve evolved the 200-Hour program to be delivered fully virtually while still offering a highly engaging and transformative experience.

Citizen Yoga’s training team combines decades of yoga teaching and training experience to offer a comprehensive, foundational yoga education that prepares trainees to be able to teach multiple types of yoga classes upon graduation. Graduates from our program are eligible to register as a Registered Yoga Teacher-200 with the Yoga Alliance.
