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.

BIPOC SCHOLARSHIP

Citizen Yoga is proud to offer 3 BIPOC scholarships for our 200-hour teacher training to those who strive to share the practice and learnings of yoga through teaching.

Every action and decision that we make at Citizen Yoga is guided by our 5 core values: Alignment, Integrity, Community, Support, and Inclusion. Inspired by the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, we added to Inclusion to our value system so that we were constantly reminded to challenge our blindspots and remain inspired to make physical and mental health more accessible and available to everyone.

In order to effect social change, we have to approach the task of educating ourselves and of healing our internal wounds with courage, dedication, and devotion.” – Dr. Gail Parker
