School Info

Geared toward adult learners, our curriculum has been designed to work with a variety of learning styles. By combining ONLINE classroom instruction with hands on work in the studio, we explore the course material from different angles including visual, kinetic and audio approaches. We record our ONLINE classes so that students may review the material as many times as needed and provide thorough manuals along with video and email support with our teachers. During the studio portion of the training we honour the adult energy cycles and complete lectures and demonstrations in the earlier portion of the day and leave applications and kinetic learning for the afternoons.

Unique to MYI is the therapeutic element of our trainings, which is due to the professional designations of our Senior Teachers. Including Registered Massage Therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and Thai Yoga Massage, we have a strong teaching family who bring their additional knowledge base to the curriculum. Providing a combined knowledge base of over 40 years of work in their respective fields, our students are exposed to therapeutic approaches to yoga practice. In our experience, our graduates gain a valuable skill in providing classes that are adaptive, safe, rehabilitative and empowering because of this exposure.
