Teacher Training

LOVE Yoga? Want to deepen your understanding so you can share with others?

I am currently accepting students for mentorship under the Teacher Training Program (TTP) offered by the Yoga Association of Alberta (YAA). TTP students have access to YAA teacher training classes held in-person or online via Zoom, plus add other classes and workshops to fit their own schedule and interests. The core curriculum is offered over a two-year rotation allowing students to start anytime, work at their own pace and integrate their learning over time. The program includes a mentorship component with one-on-one practicum hours.

The YAA also has Advanced Training Levels at the 500-, 750- and 1,000-Hour Levels. As a YAA Senior Teacher, all my classes and workshops can be used towards these training levels.

200-Hour TTP Requirements:

  • 125 Hours of YAA Teacher Training:

    • 16 x 5 Hour YAA TTP Monthly Core Curriculum Classes (offered one Saturday/month in-person or online),

    • 3 x 15 Hour YAA Teaching Skills Workshops (offered twice/year in-person or online).

  • 50 Hours of other Hatha Yoga Workshops with Mentor or any other YAA Senior Teachers (or equivalent). Training in modifications for special concerns, meditation, yoga philosophy and breath awareness is highly recommended.

  • 15 Hours of Anatomy Training (in-person or online).

  • 10 Hours of Practicum with Mentor which includes in-person or online meetings to review progress and 8 written assignments, with a minimum of 2 Hours of Mentor Supervised Teaching.

  • Students are also expected to attend regular weekly hatha yoga classes with their Mentor throughout their time in the program (available in-person or online). These hours are not counted within the program.

  • CPR Certification (any level).

  • 10 Additional Hours of Karma Yoga.

All classes & workshops are on a pay-as-you-go basis so costs are spread out throughout the time in the program and there is no up-front tuition besides a $200 application fee + yearly membership with the YAA. For more information see yoga.ca/teacher-training/.

10 Hour Practicum is $350 paid in advance (payment plan available or $40/hour). Contact me for more details.

100-Hour Immersion Program also available for those who wish to deepen their understanding of the practices and philosophies of hatha yoga, but do not have intentions to teach.
