Welcome to Edmonton’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program. Having facilitated over 20 teacher training programs, we offer an abundance of experience, facilitators accredited at the highest levels, and a learning environment that has been proven to consistently exceed the standards of excellence in education.
As an offering of Karma of Service, our lead Facilitator Sara Cueva (E-RYT 500), has determined to provide our Yoga Teacher Training at COST. With the rising costs of Yoga Teacher training programs, it becomes more challenging for those who wish to invest their time in this noble endeavour, to be able to gain access to it, with most programs running for over $3500 today. Sara believes that Yoga should be financially accessible to everyone interested in pursuing this important path. As a result, Yoga Teacher Training programs will be offered at cost, $2000 (plus tax). This low price is a direct reflection of her quality of intention in facilitating teacher trainings. Space will still be limited to ensure the highest quality of training possible. Registration is now open for all 2019/2020 Sessions.
This 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is for all students seeking to deepen their knowledge of the yoga practice, and will provide them with the skill sets necessary to be successful in teaching yoga and sharing this passion and journey with others. This training has an increased emphasis on the intelligent alignment of poses, or asanas, (applying Western advances in understanding movement and the physical body to find a recognition that all bodies are different and learning how to modify each pose to accommodate these differences), and the journey towards the yogic lifestyle found both on and off the mat.
This program is non-competitive, and is open to anyone prepared to embark on this incredible path. Higher Love Yoga Academy is a Yoga Alliance accredited School, and upon successful completion, students will be able to register with the Yoga Alliance as RYT's (Registered Yoga Teacher), enabling them to teach yoga around the world. Before registering for any Yoga Teacher Training Program, be sure to check the Yoga Alliance website. Here you will find School ratings and read student reviews and feedback.

It is imperative that graduates of this program receive the highest quality of education available. As it is our opinion that large group sizes tend to decrease the availability and attention provided by the Instructors, space in our programs are limited. Next session begins September 2019. Register now to reserve your spot today.

How to Prepare for Training
As training is an intensive process, the following tips might be quite helpful in finding balance in your life during this time of transition and deep study.
1. This training has a required reading component, including a textbook and additional readings, as well as suggested readings. This list is distributed to all participants prior to training start date. If you have the time and space in your schedule to do some of the readings ahead of time, it is a great way to start to familiarize yourself with the information, and allows for a little more freedom of time during the course.
2. Balance in our lives can be easily lost when we are not prepared. I highly encourage getting organized ahead of time. I found a day-planner works best for me, but if you have another method that is great too. I suggest planning your days around the training, so that you are certain you will have enough time for the other components of your life (work, spouse, children, prior commitments, etc.). I went through the training as a single mom of two young children, and can understand how hectic life can be when you are trying to pass your day-to-day responsibilities on to another person. Make time now to visit with family, and get any of the extras done ahead of time if possible (routine car servicing, dentist/optometrist appointments, etc).
3. I found preparing meals in advance and freezing them (so that after a long day of training you are not rushing home to make dinner for the next hour) quite helpful
