200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM ONLINE

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Yogaspace has been Toronto’s leading Registered Classical Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training School for 20 years. Our approach is therapeutic and our emphasis is on function in relation to the individual rather than on aesthetics. We are committed to providing supportive and inclusive programming in a body and age positive environment. 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 effective and 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 the yoga leaders of the future – teachers who are physically and mentally fluent in the practical and theoretical fundamentals of all aspects of yoga, 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.

Our 200 hour program is divided into two modules and led by 30 year yoga teacher veterans, Yogaspace Director, Kathryn Beet and Director of Yoga Philosophy, Hali Schwartz. The Embodied Practical Module, is a 10 weekend deep dive into developing a personal practice as a pedagogical tool for the establishment of effective and creative teaching.

In the 5 weekend Theory Module, we immerse ourselves in the fundamentals of Yoga Philosophy and Anatomy with Master Yoga Philosophy teacher Hali Schwartz and RMT/RYT, Ellie Emberley.

In March of 2020, Yogaspace was the first Toronto yoga studio to take it’s program online. We have since followed Toronto lockdowns in and out of the studio and the process has done nothing less than enhance an already prolific program. Presently, our graduates are leading free community yoga classes on our online platform. We invite you to come and experience the exceptional results of these committed individuals and our program.

“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
