Our Winter 200HR Teacher Training program runs 8 weekends spread over 5 months (November 2021 through March 2022). The weekends are spaced 3-4 weeks apart to allow for ample time to absorb the material and practice the teaching components. In addition to the classroom hours students will also have complete access to the full online program for extra study and support.

Each weekend we explore and dissect various layers of practice including history, philosophy, anatomy, physiology, energetics, pranayama, psychology, mindfulness, meditation, and more. In addition, we will explore various components of teaching methodology during each weekend module including:

  • how to effectively cue and modify postures in a trauma informed and inclusive way encouraging interoception over aesthetics and performance
  • introducing breath work in a progressive and gentle way honouring pranayama practices.
  • sequencing classes intelligently according to goals of practice (Restorative versus invigorating/stimulating)
  • introducing and guiding meditation creatively and cooperatively for diverse needs
  • trauma-informed teaching, consent, adjustments, and language

Our vision is to extract meaning and context from ancient practices and combine this with modern ideas from psychology and exercise sciences in order to create accessible classes while honoring the roots of yoga. It is very clear that no two people share the same experiences, this program opens up the dialogue between many therapeutic and movement modalities empowering through the balance of education and exploration.

This course is perfect for those who want a deeper understanding of yoga and how to implement these practices into daily living as well as those who are interested in leading group classes. The individual practicum component is completed online or via video and allows each student an opportunity to develop programming that is specific to their style of teaching. A reduced class size (max 15 students) allows for a more personalized and mentored approach for those looking to work with specific populations or registered programs. For those interested in leading workshops, specialty programs, and private yoga I encourage  continuing with the 500HR or 800HR Program.

Homework, Online & Practicum (75HRS): 

Due to the current public safety measures with Covid, we have decided to shift the schedule to reduce in-classroom contact and allow for more hours to be completed online through our online platform. There are many videos and online learning supports which students can utilize during non-classroom hours in order to gain more anatomy, practice components, and applied instruction. Some students may require more homework or online tutorial hours depending on the level of experience, but it typically averages 2-5HRS/week in addition to the scheduled classroom hours.

In addition to the required weekends’ modules, there will be a practical exam component where students will teach a full class of their choosing.  For those students out of town both the practical/assisted teaching will be arranged in home town. These hours are completed after the scheduled classroom hours.
