200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

From Training to Teaching


Uplift Communities • Inspire Leaders • Promote Wellbeing

At Yoga Shelter, our mission is to uplift the communities where Yoga Shelter studios operate, inspire more great leaders, and promote the wellbeing of individuals. Each community member has the potential to become a leader, therefore we utilize our yoga teacher training program (YTT)  as a method to cultivate and inspire individuals to discover their true potential.

Yoga Shelter YTT is focused on the method and  practice of teaching. From the first day of yoga teacher training, trainees begin learning how to teach in small groups, utilizing feedback from each other and their trainers. Yoga Shelter YTT has 10 to 12 week sessions in winter/spring and a three week intensive during the summer months. This time period allows trainees to observe and take yoga classes at Yoga Shelter, practice instructing yoga with their peers and discover a healthier lifestyle with long-lasting benefits. Yoga Shelter’s YTT provides trainees the hours required to register with the Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teacher 200-hours (RYT200) immediately after the program is over. The RYT200 certificate allows graduates to apply to jobs as yoga teachers across the country and worldwide.

Graduates of Yoga Shelter Yoga Teacher Training who are interested in joining Yoga Shelter’s team will go through a peer feedback and mentorship process. This process is crucial as trainees will learn the transition from trainee to teacher, acknowledging that we are always learning and growing. This mentorship process helps teachers and trainees foster connection, pass on knowledge, and uplift the trainee so they can find their own voice and be a leader in turn. Yoga Shelter has five locations in the metro-Detroit area and is well connected in the community. Therefore, we can provide graduates of Yoga Shelter Teacher Training more opportunities to teach yoga. Employment is not guaranteed, but this process gives each trainee the opportunity to join our staff of teachers.

Yoga Shelter Yoga Teacher Training is located in Southfield, Michigan. The training center is located on Evergreen and 696, 20 minutes from Detroit, 30 minutes from Grosse Pointe, and 25 minutes from Plymouth. This centrally located site allows individuals with life-work commitments the opportunity to attend our yoga teacher training in a night school program, while still being connected to their daily responsibilities.
