YFAB 200 Hour Teacher Training meets the requirements for Yoga Alliance and all trainees who complete the requirements will receive an official YTT certificate and will be able to register with the Yoga Alliance.
Yoga teacher training is not just for those looking to teach yoga, but is open to anyone looking to delve deeper into their practice and to have a greater understanding for the practice of yoga as a whole. You will not only walk away feeling confident in teaching yoga classes, but you’ll have a newfound knowledge of how to implement the practice into your daily life, on and off the mat.
This teacher training will cover a variety of topics and will include lecture and experiential learning on all aspects of the yoga practice. All 8 limbs of yoga will be covered, not just the physical poses. You will first learn how to refine your own practice and bring yogic principles into your own life and then you will learn how to guide others on their journey into the big, wide world of yoga.
During the first 3 months of teacher training, YFAB trainees receive an unlimited yoga membership (which is a 3 month value of $420) as well as a discount on YFAB workshops. During the training dates, trainees also have the privilege of storing their yoga mat at the studio in our mat storage unit.
Teacher training meetings are held at the yoga studio, located at 508 N. Hoyne Ave. Teacher trainees are allowed access to the staff fridge to store snacks and drinks on training days. There is also a great vegan restaurant located directly across the street from Yoga For All Beings called Upton’s Breakroom as well as many other near by restaurants, cafes and markets.
The total cost for Yoga For All Beings 200 Hour Teacher Training is $3,200. An early bird price of $2,900 is available if you pay (or make your first installment) before July 15th. You can sign up for this training online or in person at the studio. We also have a payment plan options and no interest is incurred for those using payment plans or credit cards.

Six years ago, I went to my first yoga class and realized I really liked this stuff! It took one class for me to become hooked. I was lucky. I had a great teacher for that first class and although there were would be some teachers that I didn’t always vibe with, it didn’t deter me from coming back to my mat. Flash forward to May 2015 when I heard that Yoga for All Beings was going to start a teacher training. The decision to sign up for the teacher training wasn’t an easy one. I wondered if I knew enough about yoga. I wondered about how much of a commitment it would be. I wondered if the fact that I can’t do a handstand would hold me back. All this wondering led me to believe that if I was thinking about it so much maybe it was something that I wanted to do and all of this stuff that I was ‘wondering’ about were reasons to actually go ahead and do it. So I did. I didn’t want to pass up this opportunity to grow and learn more about my practice and begin to acquire the skills to teach others about yoga. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew I was in good hands with Danielle, Melissa and Jenni.
I do not regret my choice. I have loved learning about proper alignment, pranayama (breathing!), the yamas & niyamas, all the variations of yoga that there are, and so much more. Most of all I have loved being part of a community. Danielle along with the other teachers and my fellow teacher trainees in the program have shown up for one another, have listened to and learned from one another. A safe place to learn, grow and ask questions was created. I could not have asked for a better experience.
This session of teacher training will be culminating at the end of the month. I have to be honest and say that I’m excited to sleep in on a Sunday morning again, but I am also going to miss having the time set aside to delve deep and ask questions about yoga, or a pose, or something that happened in a class that I found interesting/confusing. I’m glad I invested in this Teacher Training and in myself because the benefits have truly been countless, but to name a few: a stronger practice on and off the mat, supportive friends, a foundational set of skills to teach yoga, amazing mentors, and a deeper appreciation of the greatness that can happen when you put your mind to it.
