If you are are 500 hour graduate we encourage you to pursue this passion and make a professional statement by becoming certified in the YogaWorks method.  This achievement will indicate that you understand and represent the standards for which YogaWorks is renowned. 

In the absence of federally regulated standards, we’ve created a pathway for teachers to achieve a benchmark that represents the highest level of education and skill: the YogaWorks Certification Process. In addition to a written exam, a panel of senior instructors observe an actual class, awarding certification only to teachers who can hold a room, see students’ bodies, offer appropriate modifications and adjustments, and create a well-organized and intelligent sequence of poses in the YogaWorks Method.

Teachers who earn YogaWorks Certification can:

1) Can title their class style as YogaWorks
2) Qualify to become a lead assistant in the YogaWorks 200-hour Teacher Trainings
