The fitness industry has embraced a mainstream version of yoga, and as a result the demand for instructors and classes is reliably consistent.

Becoming a Yoga Instructor in the fitness industry is slightly different to becoming a traditional Yoga Teacher. fitnessU has partnered with YogaFit®, which is the largest yoga fitness education school in the world, to transform passionate Group Fitness Instructors into qualified and credible fitness-focused Yoga Instructors.

YogaFit® teaches all the traditions of yoga – balance, strength, flexibility and power – but it does so from a fitness and exercise science approach. This fusion is the opportunity for you to introduce yoga to everyone, regardless of his or her fitness level, which is important since the benefits of yoga are available to anyone who has a breath!

YogaFit® is designed to improve the health, performance, and mental acuteness of athletes or any individual who practices regularly. Based on the traditional fitness science of Hatha yoga, YogaFit® blends balance, strength, flexibility and power into a tried and tested fitness format.
