Teacher Training Fundamentals

We are so thrilled to be offering Moose Jaw’s first Yoga Teacher Training January 2020!

Our Fundamentals immersion has been created to be the very foundations of a teaching journey or to simply immerse oneself into the very personal practice that is yoga. Our program pays deep homage to tradition through philosophy, lineage, the human body, experience and adaptation. We are passionate about providing a platform for true exploration, discussion and sustainable yoga practices that will last a lifetime.

We know that there are individuals looking to enhance their practices and their purposes by sharing the gift of yoga with others. And that sometimes this seems impossible to do without altering our lives...so we’ve designed this program so that you can study while maintaining your current schedule!

That’s right! Though a majority of full contacts hours, you will deepen your knowledge through monthly weekend immersions while earning your certification.

Begin this next chapter of your pedagogy with Mei-Ling as she leads discussion and asana study and Kevin Naidoo as you dive into yoga’s historical context through his Philosophy and Ethics immersion. Plus study with the world renowned creators of Yoga Anatomy, Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Matthews with full access to content and discussion through this online portion of the program.

We believe that becoming a yoga teacher begins with the fundamentals that you will receive with our training immersion and that this is just the beginning of you becoming the yoga teacher that your community needs and we can’t wait to share the beginnings of your great journey with you!
