200 hour intensive yoga teacher training Ontario – Yoga Alliance approved

Take Your Love of Life to the Next Level.

The full four levels of the intensive yoga teacher training Ontario is available during the summer in Hamilton.

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 then again you might be searching for the answer to, “Who am I?”

For the most part, these learning programs might work for you.

What happens in the program?

Here you explore a variety of yoga techniques. In addition, you will have the chance to explore information about yoga philosophy. In this way learning is supported in both theory and practice. With this approach, you will develop both self-awareness and confidence teaching yoga.

Personalizing Yoga Practice

It is important that both teacher and practitioner adjust yoga techniques.  The poses, breathing exercises, and meditation can all be adjusted. For this takes into account individual differences and results in more ease and empowerment for the practitioner.

What does that mean? The 23 classical poses can increase to at least 100. How is this possible? By varying the poses to suit the individual. What a way to make poses accessible! 


Even though Ayurveda is a system that originates in India, its principles can be applied everywhere. Some of these principles address rejuvenation. Therefore applying these principles and practices increase wellness. What’s interesting is that you can apply these principles to yoga as well as to everyday life.  


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. The result is improved flexibility and health. In brief, somatics provides a way to go through life and remain healthy. Furthermore, it 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. Then she studied the therapeutic side of yoga. This was with Integrative Yoga Therapy at Enchanted Mountain, Brazil. Altogether our yoga style focuses on rejuvenation. It promotes compassion, appreciation and gratitude. In addition it strengthens the relationship with one’s own inner guiding voice, as well as with one’s connection with nature. 

There are three possible options for completing this course:

Option One

You may take the full 200 hour program during the months of April to November. This would equal 20 in class days which is scheduled on some of the weekends.


Option Two

You may attend the 20 in class days in one month during the summer. For example, teachers have enrolled in this program over their summer holidays.


Option Three

You may take smaller segments over a period of one to two years. There are 4 levels altogether. So each level is 50 hours or five days. For example, you may study Levels 1 and/or 2 in March in Barbados. 


Here practitioners teach eight yoga classes somewhere in their community. In this way, they gain teaching experience before graduating. They also benefit from the experience of setting up and running a yoga program. During the internship practitioners receive on-line feedback and mentoring.  

For Option One, the internship occurs towards the end of the program. For Option Two and Three the internship takes place after the 20 in class days.
