Basic Level Yoga Teachers Training Certification Canada

200 hour Level Yoga Certification in Ontario –  Yoga Alliance approved

Take Your Love of Life to the Next Level.
Have you benefited from yoga and now wish to share it? Perhaps you recognize yoga as a life skill and would like to teach yoga for wellness. You may also want to deepen your own practice, or might be searching for the answer to, “Who am I?”

This learning programs might work for you.

What happens in the program?

Here you explore a variety of yoga techniques: asana, pranayama, mudras, etc. In addition, you will become familiar with yoga philosophy. In this way your learning is supported with both theory and practice. 

Personalizing Yoga Practice

It is important that both yoga teacher and student adjust yoga techniques.  The poses, breathing exercises, and meditation can all be adjusted to consider individual differences. The result is more ease and empowerment for the student.


Even though Ayurveda is a system that originates in India, its principles are universal. And some of the practices address rejuvenation; both physical and mental. Applying these principles and practices increase wellness. 


Somatics is a system that offers both education and movement to regain control of your nerves and muscles. Through gentle exercises chronic muscular contractions are addressed. Somatics disproves the belief that aging means aches, pains, and stiffness.  

 Body Therapies Yoga Training’s Uniqueness

Our lead instructor first studied at Esther Myers Yoga Studio in Toronto. She then focused on the therapeutic side of yoga with Integrative Yoga Therapy at Enchanted Mountain, Brazil. Body Therapies focuses on rejuvenation. It promotes compassion, appreciation and gratitude. And strengthens the relationship with one’s own inner guiding voice, as well as with nature.

Level 1 Participant

Heather is that rare teacher who is at once grounded in traditional practice and alive to the reality and nuance in each student standing before her.

Better yet, she instructs her students in developing that same skill in all its facets. For example, how to teach to a variety of bodies, how to ensure safety and what risks are inherent in a given activity. In addition how to cultivate a language of instruction which is at once clear and sensitive to the (often not articulated) vulnerabilities of one’s students.

Heather’s teaching is incredibly challenging. She asks her students to be rigorous in their attempts to, as she puts it, “see things as they really are,” and to apply that to their everyday teaching.

Personally, I am wary of much of what passes for spirituality in some yoga classes. With Heather I found both serious philosophical inquiry and a constant consideration of practical issues and tools in the yoga classroom. This is not an advanced course in asana; it is about developing the skill of teaching itself.

Kindly complete the registration form.
