200 hour Basic Level Yoga Certification in Ontario –  Yoga Alliance approved

If you like the idea of understanding and  savoring your full nature – moving with ease, feeling vibrant, appreciating emotions, and touching the joy within – this yoga program might be for you. Sharing yoga authentically means you yourself first explore the breadth of yoga from postures to moving within. You will have time to do so within this yoga teacher training program. If you are in a helping profession – say social worker, teacher, nurse – the more you practice being aligned with your nature the more strength, courage, clarity and focus will be at your fingertips as you interact.

You can take this program over 2 years or in 5 months. There are 4 levels each 50 hours or 5 days. Levels 3 and 4 include a practicum in your community.

Sherry Shortt“After many years of wanting to take the yoga teacher training, I finally took the plunge and registered in the summer of 2011. I didn’t have any idea the depth of knowledge about yoga and about myself that I would come away with.

Heather Greaves’ teaching is exactly what I was looking for, even though I didn’t know it at the time. Heather taught me many things, but patience, acceptance and confidence were three valuable qualities that I use daily in both my professional and personal life. These three qualities, along with many other things, have helped me become the yoga teacher I have always dreamed of becoming.

The training has helped me as a professional yoga teacher to have the patience, compassion and professionalism towards my students to help guide them on their journey as Heather has guided me on mine”
