100-Hour Training

Ignite. Excite. Explore.

Our 100-Hour Intensive Teacher Certification Program leverages a very similar methodology, process and curriculum as our 200-Hour RYT program. Consider this training an excellent preparation for our 200-Hour RYT program if you so choose to move on to our next level.  It’s a wonderful program to take if you just want to fine-tune and better understand your yoga practice. It’s also very cost-effective.  You can expect the same high-caliber instruction and content as a 200-Hour program delivered in a shorter, more intense period. This program is not considered a certification under current Yoga Alliance standards.

What is the Yoga Alliance?

Yoga Alliance is an organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainings in the US. More and more yoga studios across the country are requiring their teachers to register with the Yoga Alliance, either at the 200-Hour or 500-Hour level. Yoga Alliance registration, however, is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher. The MBody Yoga Academy Trainings are approved at the Yoga Alliance 200-Hour and 300-Hour level in the United States. MBody Yoga Academy trainings have a 4.5 out of 5-star Yoga Alliance rating based on past training participants.

Please note: This program is not considered a certification under current Yoga Alliance standards.

Is the MBody Yoga Academy Teacher Training qualification recognized around the world?

Yes! The MBody Yoga Academy Teacher Training and School is globally recognized and respected which is why we have over 600 graduates. Our students come from all over the U.S. to take our training and to bring the knowledge back home to their own communities.

What is the process for teaching at an MBody Yoga studio?

MBody Yoga Academy seeks a diverse, committed, and well-trained faculty who uphold our high standard of quality for safe, effective, and accessible teaching in the field of yoga. The process to teach at MBody Yoga starts with joining our Teacher Mentorship Program. This program is available to you at no charge. In these sessions you will receive coaching and support from a Mentor (senior MBody teacher) as well as give feedback and support to your fellow participants. Once your Mentor believes you are ready to move on, you will audition with other MBody Yoga Teachers and Managers. Once you complete our audition process and are approved to teach, you will be placed on our schedule to teach a Community Class. You will join our Community Class rotation which is held on Saturdays at 4:00p and is open to the public. A Mentor will join you at each class. You will also be eligible to substitute classes until a class becomes available for you. Please note that being brought on as a teacher at MBody Yoga, or at any institution, is not only a matter of completing a training, but of the right teaching fit for that studio as well as the availability of openings on the schedule. It is never guaranteed.
