Welcome to 889’s fifth annual intake of our Living Yoga School, 2016 – 2017. This yoga teacher training program is both a personal development program designed for serious students of yoga who wish to deepen their knowledge, and the path towards becoming a Registered Yoga Teacher. Our program is unique because it blends wisdom from many fields of study, including Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Philosophy, Meditation, Ayurveda, Anatomy and Teaching Practice, to give a comprehensive overview of modern day yoga practice, with reverence to the teachings of the past.
After completing our yoga teacher training program, many of our graduates have gone on to teach yoga in prominent yoga studios and retreat centres worldwide. Other students have added a deeper skill set of mind body practices to enhance their careers in holistic nutrition, body-work, birth education, psychology and other therapeutic and movement based modalities. Whether you are interested in teaching yoga, or not, you will find the level of excellence we provide through our renowned, highly experienced faculty and unique and thorough programming to be a life-changing experience.
Our yoga teacher training program in 2016/17 is expertly designed to provide a deep introduction into the art and science of yoga. The course in its entirety, is taken over five months, from October 2016 to February 2017. Members of our community enjoy the flexibility of taking just one or two of our 8 – 30 hour Modules (we open up 5 spots to the community at large for many of the modules) to keep their practice and knowledge fresh, and to go deeper than one would normally do in regular classes.
All of our faculty have a minimum of ten years of professional yoga teaching training practice, and are leaders in their chosen fields in Toronto, with stellar reputations that are respected internationally.
Our course exceeds the minimum requirements set by the International Yoga Alliance. This year, our program consists of 206 direct contact hours with faculty, valuable one-on-one mentorship with esteemed teachers at 889, and can be completed conveniently over weekends and weeknights. Lifelong friendships are made in the Living Yoga School; we warmly welcome you to apply for this life-changing program.
