FALL 200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM

Yogaspace has been Toronto’s leading Registered Classical Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training School for 20 years. Our 200 hour program is divided into two modules. Module 1 Online, the theory component, is a 5 weekend, online deep dive into the foundations of yoga philosophy & anatomy with renowned teachers, Hali Schwartz & Ellie Emberley. Module 1 runs from November 21 – December 20. Module 2, is the 8 weekend embodied practical component and takes place in the studio, (or online when necessary). Module 2 runs from January 9 – February 28. Both modules come with a 3 month complimentary class-pass.

Join program directors Kathryn Beet & Hali Schwartz with recent program graduates for an online information session, Wednesday September 30th, 6-7pm. Please RSVP to  yoga-space@sympatico.ca 

“I first found Yogaspace while seeking out a good studio in the city to complete a Yoga Teacher Training program with. All it took was one drop-in class back in January, for me to make the decision to go with them as my school of choice.The changes Yogaspace has made to their yoga school to accommodate students during the pandemic was truly impressive. Module 1 of the Yogaspace 200 hour program is hosted online via Zoom to build a strong foundation on yoga philosophy with Hali and anatomy with Ellie. I am blown away at the depth of knowledge these two had to teach us and how well it was put together for the online portion. For Module 2, the in-studio component, practical component, they had a professional come in to mark the floor with social distanced mat placement guides and Kathryn has taken the extra precaution of adding an air purification device to the studio room which not only filters out toxins but also helps to sanitize the room. The studio was so clean I never once felt anxious or worried about my decision to return to an in-person class setting. We all had our temperature checked with a contact-free thermometer upon entering the studio, daily and we had a discussion on the first day about each of our individual comfort and trust in each other to navigate this group activity and remain safe in our own bubbles. It was an incredible experience! I would recommend both of the modules of this 200 hr YTT program to anyone who has an interest in deepening their practice or becoming a yoga teacher, (or both)! I cannot wait to share my practice with others and am so grateful for the time my classmates and I had together to go through this enriching experience”. ~ Alexis Rohrer

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Yogaspace has been training yoga teachers for 20 years. We offer Yoga Alliance Registered Trainings at the 200 and 300 hour levels. We also offer a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. All trainees must begin with the 200 hour program. Successful graduates of the 200 hour program are eligible for RYT 200 status with the Yoga Alliance. Once trainee’s graduate from the 200 hour level, they may continue on to the 300 hour program and/or RPYT training. Successful graduates of the 300 hour program are then eligible for RYT 500 status. Graduates of the RPYT, (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher), 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 30 years each. They are eager students and educators of yoga, passionate about sharing their significant knowledge and experience. They are always accessible to trainees and the extended Yogaspace teaching team also serve as mentors.

The environment at Yogaspace is supportive, inclusive and friendly. Yogaspace is a body positive and age positive organization. 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 all.

Teaching yoga, is a yoga in and of itself. We believe that exceptional 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. Please note: we no longer issue hard copy certificates. Digital certificates are sent upon full completion of program requirements.Successful graduates of the 200 hours program are eligible to register for the 300 hour program and/or the RPYT program.
