"This is so much more than yoga teacher training. It is life training, warrior training; a training of transformation."
We offer Canada's only federally registered Non-Profit Teacher Training that provides full and partial scholarships to our aspiring teachers, making the path of yoga accessible to all who wish to pursue it! Our training is registered with both Yoga Alliance and Canadian Yoga Alliance and passionately and lovingly taught by our talented, inspiring teaching faculty. We host legendary master teachers as mentors and guest teachers, exposing our students to insightful teachings from a wide variety of lineages. We truly believe that we have created the most epic, talked-about, groundbreaking and empowering 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training out there. The best part? It's accessible to everyone.
"I now have the tools to live a much more fulfilled life with much more self care, self love, and compassion"
Our revolutionary 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is designed to strip down the barriers you have spent a lifetime building. We use intense asana, experiential philosophy and powerful emotional exercises to train you to truly become a teacher of yoga; not just a teacher of postures. Choosing to join the Karma Teachers Teacher Training means choosing to become part of a family; a family that goes far beyond the short 200 hours of the training. We offer continuing education, in-studio teaching opportunities and amazing support. We understand that the training is just the beginning of your journey; a journey that we are here to support no matter where it takes you.
This is truly so much more than yoga teacher training. It is life training, warrior training; a training of transformation. It affords you the space to rediscover the beauty and love that define who you really are: strong, beautiful, powerful, and a unique manifestation of the source of all things. Through this experience, you will learn to become a skilled and empowered yoga teacher.
Students can expect to learn the history of yoga, an in-depth understanding of yogic teachings, as well as a thorough grounding in the physical practices of yoga. We also explore the use of meditation, mantra and pranayama in your personal practice, as well as in your practice teaching. This training is inspired by the Karma Yoga lineage of transcending one's actions and is dedicated to the transformational power of selfless service. These life-changing teachings will alter the way you experience and teach asana, anatomy, alignment and sequencing, and will prepare you to be a powerful teacher, ready to serve and empower others.
