Interested in getting your SUP yoga certification? Anyone who wants to become a better paddler or has a desire to deepen their SUP yoga practice can get certified through our paddle boarding teacher training.
Are there any age restrictions?
Minimum age to get FloYo certified is 18 – this is for insurance purposes.
Do I have to have a lot of experience on a SUP or doing yoga?
Not necessarily. You will get the most out of your experience if you have some experience on a paddle board. The training should not be your very first time on a board. Same with yoga, you will find it extremely beneficial to have a basic knowledge of yoga poses, sequencing, etc. but you do not have to be a yoga instructor to complete the FloYo training.
Do I need to have my 200-hour yoga training or any other fitness instructor certifications?
Yes, we require you to have (or be in the process of obtaining) your 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate. If you are attending a one-day pool certification these requirements are a bit different.
What exactly does the FloYo teacher training certification get me?
Once you complete the FloYo teacher training, you have a new depth of knowledge on proper paddle technique, water rescue skills, and know how to put together a FloYo class sequence. The FloYo training manual is yours to keep and you also receive 20 hours of yoga alliance continuing education credits. Upon successful completion you will also be a part of the FloYo world wide network of instructors. This international accreditation caters to career instructors and school owners and opens doors to take your teaching around the globe.
So, after I get certified I can begin teaching FloYo classes?
In order to teach the branded FloYo classes and use the trademarked name and class sequence, you need to become a FloYo affiliate. You also need to complete 10 hours assisting classes in order to be ready to teach on your own.
What do I need to do to become a FloYo affiliate?
You need to successfully complete the FloYo teacher training, submit your 200-hour RYT certification, show proof of prior teaching experience, submit your CPR certification, and the signed affiliate agreement and statement of interest.
Is there a fee to become a FloYo affiliate?
Yes, the annual fee to maintain your FloYo affiliation is $75.
What do I get for being a FloYo Affiliate?
Ability to brand your FloYo classes with the FloYo logo
Access to monthly FloYo newsletters

What should I bring with me to the training?
