Mind + Body Leadership (MBL)

Learn to teach fitness-level Yoga and Meditation classes.

Mind & Body Leadership is a group fitness certification that is based in yoga and incorporates other exercise formats that are calming & non-competitive.   

Students will learn fundamentals of a yoga-fitness class format with focus on teaching alignment, core work, pelvic floor health, balance, stretching, breathing, vocalizations, and meditation/visualization. This course is primarily about yoga, but students who certify in MBL are allowed to incorporate elements from other slow physical activity methods such as Pilates, tai chi, qi gong, ballet & other dance forms, (if they have additional training). Certified MBLs can also, with additional training & exams, incorporate portable equipment such as yoga props, foam rollers, and dance or martial arts props, in their classes.  Students will also learn skills needed for teaching any fitness class such as lesson planning, cueing, giving corrections, safety, and proper use of music.

This certification (and the related insurance) excludes any version of hot yoga or any inversion asanas.

This course includes a digital manual and your first year of membership in the NSFA ( June 2024- June 2025)  which includes Instructor's insurance for any students who successfully meet all of the certification requirements.

All participants must also complete Exercise Theory and have a current 1st Aid & CPR certification before the MBL certificate will be issued.


Please note: this course will be delivered via a blend of live video stream & in-person sessions.
