Yoga Alliance Certification

Radici Yoga School Yoga Teacher Training Programs are certified with Yoga Alliance. Upon completion of any of the Radici Yoga Courses, each qualified student will receive a Yoga Alliance Approved Teacher Training Certificate. This certificate is recognized by most Yoga Studios, internationally, as an indication that you are a qualified Yoga Teacher.


Criteria for Teacher Training Certification: Each student is expected to attend & participate in all sessions of Radici Teacher Course, unless in the case of an emergency or illness- in which case, course content can be made up. Please read our Make Up Policy.


Participation in the Yoga Teacher Training Course includes asana practice, pranayama, meditation, homework assignments, self-study, and teaching practicums.


In addition to class attendance & participation, any assignments given during the program must be completed, and the student must demonstrate an adequate practice and skill of the asanas, pranayama, meditation techniques, theory, practicum, and teaching skills in order to receive certification.

Radici Yoga is located in the heart of Florence, Italy. It is less than a ten minute walk to the Santa Maria Novella train station and one block from the Fortezza Tramvia and public parking.

Around Radici Yoga, there are a wide selection of accommodations. We recommend the Student Hotel, a new concept hotel nearby, and there are many reasonably priced places on AirBNB. Florence’s historical center is very walkable and there are always many things going on. Given our proximity to the Tramvia, you can stay further out of town and easily commute to the studio. Bike sharing is also available through the Mobike app.


If you have any questions about Florence; what to do, where to stay, or how to get here, just ask the team: post@radiciyoga.com
