200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM ONLINE

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Yogaspace has been one of Canada’s leading 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training schools for twenty one years. We specialize in Classical Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga. Our approach is therapeutic and our emphasis is on function over aesthetics.

In 2020 we took our training online and the process has done nothing less than enhance an already prolific program. We have recently received the Online Teaching Exemption from The Yoga Alliance, ensuring that students enrolled in our online training are eligible for Yoga Alliance registration upon graduation.

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 appropriate for those interested in deepening their yoga practice but not necessarily wanting to teach. The 200 Hour Program is the prerequisite for all of our other training programs and continuing education courses.


PROGRAM FORMAT

The program is divided into two modules and led by 30 year yoga teacher veterans and lead trainers, Kathryn Beet and Hali Schwartz. Both modules run several times annually, and can be taken in either order, with as much space between them as one prefers.
