Become an Instructor!

Learn how to confidently motivate and inspire others on their fitness journey.


Fri July 21st - Sun 23rd, 2023 | Providence RI

Are you passionate about health and fitness? Do you LOVE the Core Fire Conditioning classes at Rhode Island Hot Yoga? Here's your opportunity to practice with the best and learn how to lead a class yourself! In this 3-day weekend intensive, we will give you all the tools that you need to lead our signature Core Fire Conditioning class.

Core Fire Conditioning is a high energy, low impact class designed to build physical strength and cardiovascular stamina. Class is done in a heated room (~ 95 degrees) and uses a mix of high intensity interval training (HIIT) and traditional exercises. This upbeat class is set to music and is appropriate for all bodies and abilities. The format was developed by our lead trainer Steph Barta, who runs the training with support from our instructors Gianna Auger and Stacy Epstein.

The curriculum includes modules on class structure, common exercises, timing, music selection, class philosophy, and professional ethics.
