How to Get Certified

To become a Certified Iron Yoga Teacher (CIYT), you must complete a 1-day Iron Yoga Teacher Training (IYTT) Certification Course, taught by one of the Iron Yoga Team and follow the process outlined below.

Becoming a CIYT will allow you to teach Iron Yoga and use the name Iron Yoga at any studio, gym, fitness center or at a private location, both to groups for classes and to individuals for private sessions. You will become part of a community of CIYTs and will be listed in our online directory of Certified Iron Yoga teachers on our website, with a link to your own business website, if applicable. This will allow potential clients to find out where you are teaching and contact you directly. We will also do marketing promotions for your Iron Yoga classes and workshops and help you get started with your Iron Yoga business!

Cost: The cost of becoming a CIYT is $499. This includes an Iron Yoga Book, DVD (this will be online as a video soon), training manual and hands-on instruction and feedback during a 1-day IYTT Certification Course.

Schedule: Iron Yoga Teacher Training Certification Courses are held in San Francisco, New York and other locations coming soon.

Cancellation Policy: There will be no refund if you cancel, although you may reschedule for a future course, for no additional cost, as long as you email us to reschedule at least 2 weeks prior to your scheduled course.

No pre-requisites are required in order to take the IYTT course, however it is an advantage if you are already a yoga teacher, fitness instructor or personal trainer.

The IYTT Certification Course may be used towards Continuing Education hours for Yoga Alliance.
