Program Description

This comprehensive program marries the best of mindfulness and yoga practices so that you can teach safely and with confidence. Our teachers have a long history of teaching yoga and meditation in a variety of settings.

Come explore and deepen your knowledge of Yoga philosophy and history, anatomy and physiology, yoga ethics/lifestyle, teaching methodology, meditation, “chakras”, and breathwork through hands-on instruction, independent study, and assignments. Our program is based on the 8 Limbed Yoga Path. The final session will include a class on the “Business of Teaching Yoga” where you will learn about the tax exemptions available to you should you want to earn a part-time income teaching yoga outside school.

Finally, if desiring to have this course offered in your high school as a grade 11 and/or 12 inter-disciplinary credit, we will provide you with a proposal to present to your principal, a course outline, rubrics, and a student course pack. For our Elementary school teachers, we will have special sessions on how to teach yoga and mindfulness to children.

Our staff are inspiring, passionate and well-regarded professionals in their fields of expertise as they assist and guide you with warmth and compassion.

I know that taking a course to become a yoga teacher 20 years ago changed and enriched my life immeasurably and continues to do so today.
It is my deepest belief that it will do the same for you.
~Natalia Fister, Yoga Teacher and Secondary School Teacher
