200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training
You’ve reached this DEFINING MOMENT in your life!
You can choose to remain where you are
You can make a bold move forward in your life.
This INSPIRING JUNCTURE is propelled by a yearning for something more, to DEEPEN AND NOURISH YOUR PRACTICE, and to explore a more profound connection within.
I never thought I would become a yoga teacher, let alone open a studio and run a teacher training. Fear and self-doubt kept me from trying something new, from living my dream. But my very first yoga teacher training cracked my heart wide open and CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER! Shyness and fear fell away. I love sharing this empowering practice with everyone.
This program is for heart-centred souls wishing to go deeper with their practice, to UNRAVEL THE MYSTERIES OF LIFE, and to explore the inner landscapes of themselves.
The first half of our teacher training delves into the art of yoga. The training is deeply rooted in alignment principles to keep students safe, so you know how to modify poses for your body and others. We explore the philosophy and spiritual aspects of yoga to begin to change our lives. You will be introduced to Ayurveda and breathing techniques to start to change your habits, become healthier, and have more energy.
The second half of the teacher training moves onto the art of teaching, where we build on skilful teaching techniques session by session. We’ll explore how to create a safe, beautiful space for your students, languaging skills to empower your students, and more. You’ll discover your unique voice (no matter how shy you may be – we don’t throw you into teaching right away like most trainings do, but instead build your confidence). We’ll teach you the skills needed to be a successful yoga teacher and how to make it a viable business for yourself, so you can have a career you love and enjoy waking up in the mornings to share your love of yoga with others.
The training is on the weekends (mostly every 2nd weekend), so you can begin to integrate it into your life.
If you want to live a more vibrant life, filled with presence, connection, and joyful health while helping others experience the same, then this program is for you.

What We Offer
We want to empower you with the knowledge we’ve acquired in class design, teaching, workshop development and more. Our faculty has all completed thousands of hours of training, have years of practice, and have taught (and currently teach) in many studios. We’re skilled in marketing and business management, and the lead trainer owns the yoga studio.
Our training is spread over several weekends so you can still live your life and have time to incorporate your new skills and the transformational process. Our highly organized training is delivered through many formats – yoga flashcards, two manuals, in class study, assignments, videos and more – so you can be the best yoga teacher.
We’ve been teaching this teacher training program for many years now, and every year we refine and perfect the teacher training to deliver outstanding content.
