School Info

In Balance Teacher Training is a Yoga journey that dives deep into the traditions of yoga but then carries it up and off the mat into everyday life. Yoga as our focus and medium, we will explore every layer of breath, body, mind and spirit reconnecting to our authentic selves and weaving them together to uncover our deepest heartfelt passions.
The In Balance Yoga Teacher Training is entirely unique and encompasses an authentic approach. We recognize that yoga, from its earliest roots in ancient India, has continually grown and developed - and continues to evolve as we bring its teachings into the science and technology of today. We firmly believe that every path of this old tradition should be acknowledged but also explored in conjunction with the exciting, new research and studies of the 21st century yoga. We believe that a great yoga teacher is a wonderfully unique combination of scientist, artist and spiritual guide, and seek to develop those abilities in each and every one of our students. Rather than focusing on any particular school or style of yoga or relying too heavily on a single tradition, the course draws on a range of yoga styles and resources from various specialists in their perspective fields of study.

This 4 month intensive teaching certification course with 4 month teacher integration program, we help to create an inspiring and deep yoga practice, while providing thorough preparation for the aspiring yoga teacher. We are honoured to bring together scholars, health professionals and senior yoga teachers as part of our teaching faculty.

The course is challenging on many levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. In addition to practicing twice daily, there is the study of anatomy, yoga history, yoga philosophy, teaching methodology, posture workshops, Buddhist yoga, functional anatomy, Ayurveda and more.
The program is wonderful not only for those who wish to become yoga teachers, but also for those looking to create a spark in their life and momentum in improving health, learning to relax, and beginning a program of self-study.
