SCHOOL AND PROGRAM DETAILS ▼
Yogaspace has been training yoga teachers for 17 years. We offer trainings at the 200 and 300 hour levels. We also offer a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. Successful graduates of the 200 hour program are eligible for RYT 200 status with the Yoga Alliance. Successful graduates of the 300 hour program are eligible for RYT 500 status and graduates of the RPYT program are eligible for RPYT status.
We offer three, 200 hour Teacher Training program options annually. A four week Summer intensive, a 13 weekend Fall Program and a 13 weekend Winter program. All programs include a 4 month complimentary drop-in class pass, unlimited access to our private infrared sauna for $10 per session, (regularly $25), and free mat storage at the centre.
The scheduling of our programs allows for a healthy, relaxed learning process, structured to meet the unique needs of individuals who work and and/or go to school full time. The Summer 200 hour program is popular with public school teachers, University students and visitors from abroad.
Our 200 hour program is suitable for serious students with at least two years of yoga practice who have developed a passion for the practice of yoga and an interest in becoming yoga teachers as well as serious students, interested in deepening their yoga practice but not necessarily wanting to teach.
Our senior faculty members are recognized leaders in the Toronto Yoga community who have been teaching for over 20 years. They are eager students and educators of yoga, passionate about sharing their significant knowledge and experience. They are accessible to students while the larger Yogaspace teaching team serve as mentors to teachers in training.
The environment at Yogaspace is supportive, inclusive and friendly. Our 200 hour program offers in-depth training in Classical Hatha and Contemporary Vinyasa Yoga. We also offer specialty classes and advanced training in Restorative Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Scaravelli Yoga, Flow Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Pilates Fusion and more.
As a school, our approach is therapeutic and our emphasis is on function in relation to the individual rather than on aesthetics. We are interested in using the poses to explore the body rather than using the body to attain the perfect pose. We believe that the practice of yoga is beneficial to everyone and that a liberal approach to the use of modifications makes it accessible to anyone.
Teaching yoga, is a yoga in and of itself. We believe that fundamental teaching skills are attained through:
1. A strong theoretical and practical education in all aspects of yoga.
2. Student commitment to a personal practice as the foundation of creative teaching.
3. The experience that can only be attained through the practice of teaching, itself.
The Yogaspace 200 hour teaching faculty is dedicated to graduating new teachers who are physically and mentally fluent in the fundamentals so they may begin their teaching journey with confidence and ease. The rest is up to each individual who embarks on the journey. With each group of students we work with, we witness the awakening of incredible passion, commitment and dedication as graduation draws near and the option of teaching community classes becomes imminent.
Successful graduates of the 200 hours program are eligible to register for the 300 hour program and/or the RPYT program.
