The Yoga Tune Up® Level 1 70-hour Certification Program strikes a balance between the worlds of yoga and fitness. It attracts trainees of all ages, body types, and movement modalities. Using the yogic lens of awareness, conscious relaxation and breathing techniques, trainees intimate understanding of their own architecture, and dive deeply into integrated anatomy and body mechanics. Go beyond formulaic instruction and truly learn how to think and teach creatively within your specific teaching environment, with both group classes and private clients.
Trainees are presented with “template” Yoga Tune Up® classes that can be used to help jumpstart workshops and classes. Successful completion and certification of the Level 1 training is mandatory prior to teaching any Yoga Tune Up® classes or workshops. Passing of the Level 1 course is required to be a licensed YTU teacher.
This 70 hour training:
- Become proficient and comfortable with the fundamentals of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics and how to apply them in a private or group class setting.
- Learn a step-by-step process to create memorable, accessible classes and learn to “think out of the boxana.”
- Refresh your love of teaching and learn new classroom leadership skills.
- Be prepared to teach your own Yoga Tune Up® classes, privates, and more.

Each day of the training, these classes are open for enrollment to the public. They are perfect for those who want to experience a Yoga Tune Up® class but cannot commit to the entire duration and cost of the training.
5/3- Total Body Tune Up
This class introduces dozens of preparatory dynamic warm-ups that serve to tune up awareness, range of motion, and uncovering areas of weakness or kinetic disconnect. Explore every major joint of the shoulders, hips and spine to build a repertoire of conscious connected movement from top to bottom and inside out.
5/4 – Hips Focus/Triangle Tune Up
This class disassembles Triangle and Twisted Triangle poses and deeply analyzes hip range of motion from every conceivable angle. If these poses have been a bugaboo in the past, this class will clarify where your hips may need some extra attention. Class also includes deep core work.
5/5 – Shoulder Focus towards Down Dog
Break down Down Dog before your Dog has a breakdown. Shoulder mobility, or lack thereof, can create multiple obstacles for doing this pose efficiently and harmoniously. Learn dozens of new shoulder tactics to improve this pose for the long-term while “un-tacking” trouble spots in the shoulder girdle.
5/6 – Restorative Hips Day
Learn a profoundly relaxing sequence that restores motion and length to the entire hip joint. Reclaim your hips with this stealth sequence that unglues even the most reluctant of joints to become nimble, supple and supportive. Bonus pranayama sequences also assure rejuvenating deep rest.
5/10 – Core and Spinal Rotation
This class explores the roots of total spinal rotation. Core musculature will be toned and lengthened from every vector. Your spine will learn to relate better to the pelvis for safe and connected twists from root to crown.
5/11 – Core and Backbend
A spine prepares for backbends by understanding its own coordination, mobilization and limitations. This class digs through layers of core musculature to help you connect with the innermost abdominals to improve your performance of every category of backbend.
Masterclasses will open for enrollment 2 weeks before the start of the training.
