200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM

Please direct inquiries to contact@yogaspace.net or call us at 416-530-1622

Yogaspace is an International Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training School that has developed a solid and longstanding reputation for excellence over twenty eight years. We honour the historic roots of yoga alongside a modern, evidence based foundation in which form is at the service of function. 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. 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 give us a call, come visit our studio and consider our programs.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Yogaspace 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program provides prospective yoga teachers and those interested in enriching their yoga practice with a strong foundation in all aspects of practicing and teaching Vinyasa and Classical Hatha yoga. The program happens twice annually in the Spring and in the Fall and takes place in the studio and online over twelve weeks, (with two short breaks). The thirty hour *yoga philosophy module is offered virtually over ten Wednesday evenings and the practical training takes place in the studio over twelve weekends. The program concludes with an (optional) practicum on the Yogaspace schedule. For twenty four years Yogaspace Community Classes have proven to be an essential component of our graduate success rate, serving as a breeding ground for confident, capable teachers.

By certification, our graduates have developed the discipline of a personal yoga practice as the foundation for exceptional teaching alongside the knowledge, skill and experience to begin teaching in yoga studio’s, gyms, schools, retreats, private settings and corporate settings. Graduates qualify for RYT status with the International Yoga Alliance and those wishing to further their yogic studies at the 300 hour level, have the pre-requisite to do so. For quality assurance, we take a maximum of 16 students per session.

* Students have the option of taking the yoga philosophy module separately from the practical module as long as they do so within the same 12 month period. Please contact us for this option.
