200 RYT Certification

200 RYT Certification

Yoga Immersion and 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher Certification

“Eighteen years experience training Cincinnati’s best yoga teachers.”

It’s Yoga of Cincinnati’s 200-hour RYT program focuses on training yoga students who have an established practice experience with any yoga style or a recommendation from their yoga instructor. Upon completion of the Yoga Teacher Training program, trainees receive a 200-hour It’s Yoga Cincinnati Certification, enabling them to become Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT 200) with the National Yoga Alliance.

This training program teaches students how to teach the traditional styles of Ashtanga/Vinyasa using a Modified Primary Series, as well as how to teach a classical Hatha style. Our program of study focuses on:

  • Anatomical postural alignment
  • Kinesiology – study of muscles relative to  body & joint mobility
  • Effects of postural deformities
  • Facilitated stretching to prevent muscle injury
  • Verbal & physical body adjustment techniques
  • Raja Yoga – philosophy, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, & Sanskrit terminology
  • Asana pronunciation in Sanskrit & correct English translations
  • Pranayama techniques, Ujjayi breathing, Drishti & Bandhas
  • Yoga Tradition – history, lifestyle, theory of karma, gunas, meditation, chakras, mantra etc.
  • Class assisting, practice teaching & class observation
  • Psychology of teaching, ethics & marketing

Other program highlights include the study of different meditation and pranayama  techniques along with yoga philosophy and Sanskrit terminology with an experienced traditional teacher trained in an unbroken yoga lineage. Kinesiology is studied to understand the range of movement for specific joints and muscles in order to perceive the differences between compression, tension and muscular imbalance. A comparative study of alignment and postural deformities teaches prospective yoga teachers how to help their students prevent injuries while balancing muscle flexibility with strength.  Class observation, assisting and teaching public classes gives new teachers experience and confidence in their teaching skills.

All of It’s Yoga’s classes during the RYT 200 program are free for trainees. We encourage class participation to expose trainees to a variety of yoga class styles and teachers. Students are guided by two detailed workbooks presenting yoga theory and technique. The theory book covers the history of yoga, postural theory, technique of stretching, subtle anatomy, meditation, and pranayama, etc. The technique book provides an in-depth examination of the key yoga postures, outlining for each one its alignment, benefits, counter-indications, modifications and Sanskrit/English names. Both manuals were written by Indubala Bhardwaj, the founder of the program.

The 200-Hour RYT Training program is held twice a year. It starts September 14, 2018.
