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-transformation as they begin to internalize, live, and teach Citizen alignment yoga. Based on a manual developed by Citizen Yoga founder Kacee Must, Citizen’s upcoming 200-Hour program will be in a hybrid format that combines the convenience of virtual learning with valuable in-person teaching to offer a highly engaging and educational 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 BIPOC scholarships for our 200-Hour Teacher Training to 3 individuals 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. As part of our ongoing effort to diversify the demographics of students who practice, train, and teach at Citizen, the BIPOC scholarships were introduced in 2020. We continue to seek creative ways to challenge our blindspots and make physical and mental health more accessible and approachable 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
