200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM

Yogaspace is an International Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training School that has developed a solid and longstanding reputation for excellence over twenty five years. We honour the historic roots of yoga alongside a modern, evidence based foundation in which form is at service of function, (rather than aesthetics). We are proud to see our graduates preferentially hired and a notable prominence of our alumni who have become yoga leaders and educators locally and internationally. We have worked hard to develop an outstanding curriculum and to sustain the most excellent faculty possible. Our lead trainers are among the most experienced and accomplished 500 hour ERYT yoga educators in Canada.

We invite anyone serious about deepening their understanding and practice of the vast subject that is yoga to come to one of our information sessions, meet our faculty and consider our programs.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The 200 hour program provides trainees with a strong foundation in all aspects of practicing and teaching yoga. Individuals interested in deepening their yoga practice and/or becoming yoga teachers begin here. The program is divided into two modules: The Theory Module, which takes place online and the Practical Module, which is offered online and in-person, (when possible). The program culminates in an optional three month teaching assignment on the Yogaspace class schedule. Students graduate from the 200 hour program having developed a personal yoga practice as the foundation for exceptional teaching, alongside the knowledge, skill and confidence to begin teaching yoga classes online and in-person in yoga studios, corporate settings, gyms and private settings. Our 200 hour program provides an unparalleled foundation for more advanced training.
The Theory and Practical Modules can be taken in either order and with as much time in between as one prefers.
