Do I need to be a Yoga Instructor (200-hour certified) to take the Thyroid Yoga® Practitioner Training?
No! Many of our Thyroid Yoga® graduates are certified yoga instructors, however this is not required. Many of our graduates are also graduates of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition or are certified in another healing or movement modality. A 200-hour certification is recommended for teaching classes in a studio, though not required for the Thyroid Yoga® practitioner training and certification. We recommend all practitioners look into yoga teacher insurance for working with clients, studios, and other instruction.
