Body Positive Yoga Teacher Training

200-hour yoga teacher certification

Body Positive Yoga Teacher Training is a 200-hour yoga teacher certification facilitated by Body Positive Yoga founder Amber Karnes.

This training incorporates accessible, adaptive yoga asana practice, intersectional feminist and social justice principles, addresses working with marginalized communities and outside the “yoga studio-industrial complex”, and operates from a body-positive, Health at Every Size perspective.

Aspiring yoga teachers as well as yoga practitioners looking to deepen their own personal practice are welcome to apply.  At the end of this 200-hour yoga teacher training, you will qualify to register and teach yoga as a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (registration with YA is optional).

This course will be held in Richmond, Virginia, over 5 sessions from October 2019 through March 2020. There will be home-study and assignments between our in-person dates. The dates are below:

October 5-12, 2019
November 8-10, 2019
January 17-19, 2020
February 21-23, 2020
March 14-21, 2020

A limited number of partial and full scholarships (as well as payment plans) will be available.
