Online 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

With Yogaspace closing it’s doors for the time being, we are taking our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program online. We have discovered that the online format allows us to easily convey all essential information, while at the same time, providing an intimate group setting and allowing for interpersonal bonds between students and teachers. Our first wave of online students have been pleased to continue their training despite not being able to attend classes in person. If you have any questions about the program, please send an email to yoga-space@sympatico.ca for an immediate response.

The program is broken down into two modules: Module 1 includes 3 online courses and 30 required online classes. Module 2 consists of 98 hours of classroom time. Once the courses and classes in Module 1 have been completed, students can choose one of two available formats for Module 2.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Yogaspace has been training yoga teachers for 18 years. We offer Yoga Alliance Registered 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.

The 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. It is also an appropriate learning environment for 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 Teachers in Training while the larger Yogaspace teaching team also serve as mentors.

The environment at Yogaspace is supportive, inclusive and friendly. Our 200 hour program offers in-depth training in Classical Hatha and Contemporary Vinyasa Yoga.
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.

Graduate certificates are issued upon completion of all course requirements and at the discretion of the Program Director. Successful graduates of the 200 hours program are eligible to register for the 300 hour program and/or the RPYT program.
