Come to this weekend intensive and gain a solid grounding in Ayurvedic principles and their practical application to support your good health and balance.

You will learn how to : 
Identify your Dosha (constitutional make up) on the physical, mental and emotional levels; find out what causes imbalance and how to restore harmony.
Swim with the flow of life by discovering the influence of the major life cycles as classified in Ayurveda upon your life span, your daily experience and the seasonal transitions.
Improve your digestion with the Ayurvedic approach to food for each Dosha. You will also learn the qualities and functions of the six tastes and the benefits of food combining.
Recognize the process of disease as identified by Ayurveda and how to reverse the process.
Cleanse your system in ways that are Dosha appropriate.
Feel young, fresh and vibrant by consuming Rasayanas – Superfoods, herbs and spices that are just right for your Dosha.

Come join Kevin Gaudet Tuesdays 4:30pm Hot Flow and 6pm Sattva for the next 5 weeks as he subs for Andrew!

Here is a little bit about him:

For Kevin, yoga is the practice of life. It provides the method, training ground and reality for fully and consciously moving through the world, for encountering all of lifes twists and turns with grace, intelligence, and respect. The mirror of practice is one that will consistently provide the practitioner with a high fidelity reflection of themselves, strengths and weaknesses alike. To be living within the opportunity to develop precision and discrimination as this reflection is observed is an opportunity Kevin intends to make the most of. This opportunity is one that Kevin feels all should have equal potential to put to practice, and is at the root of what drives him to share this inspiration with all who seek.

Prana Yoga Studio added an event.

Are you a 200 hour trained yoga teacher? Are you interested in deepening your practice and taking your teaching to the next level? Are you drawn to moving through an in-depth YTT program with a committed group of like-minded individuals, growing and sharing together?

Dive into the true roots of traditional, holistic yoga and its timeless application for the evolving world. The course offers yoga teachers of all traditions a unique opportunity for professional development and profound personal growth.

This 300-hour certification course (which gives a graduate a total of 500-hours of training in combination with their previous YTT 200) is intended only for graduates of a Yoga Alliance recognized 200-hour teacher training program or equivalent. Core and elective modules can also be audited by any committed yoga students.

Yoga teaching is an art that refines and evolves as we do. This is never static, but something that develops directly through our own authenticity and through immersion in yoga practice, philosophy and lifestyle. There are no set rules or structures, but a rich tradition to draw from in our explorations. Yoga teacher training is a huge support for this development.

The YTT 300 group will explore the transformative power of diverse aspects of the yoga tradition both theoretically and experientially, and provide the opportunity for students to share reflections and personal experiences in a supportive community of yogis and teachers. The course offers the following elements: Techniques, Teaching Methodology, Philosophy-Lifestyle-Ethics, Anatomy (physical and subtle), and a Teaching Practicum.

The 300 hour program is a modular based program designed to combine core modules with elective modules.

Receive 6 months of free yoga classes during the course!

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes before class and be on your mat at least 5 minutes before the class start time. Late comers are not permitted.
  • All students must sign-in by presenting your scanner card (pass) to the receptionist before entering a class. You may also use the self sign-in screen when available.
  • Please leave valuables at home and store all coats and personal belongings in the changerooms to keep the studios tidy and spacious.  Front doors will be locked when a receptionist is not on site.

  • Please turn off or mute all cell phones upon entering the reception area. Cell phones are not permitted in the studios.
  • Please keep voices low while in the reception area and change room/washroom. The yoga rooms are silence only zones, please use the reception area for conversations with friends and teachers.
  • Please refrain from wearing scented products (perfumes, after shave, etc.) as some students are extremely sensitive.
  • Come well hydrated and with a light stomach (avoid eating heavy foods for 2-3 hours before your practice). Wear bare feet and light weight clothing that is easy to move in.
  • Let your instructor & reception know if you are pregnant, or if you have any injuries or medical conditions they should be aware of.  If you have serious allergies or medical conditions such as epilepsy, type 1 diabetes, heart conditions, high/ low blood pressure, etc. please unsure reception has proper up-to-date emergency contact info. Please note: Hot yoga should be discussed with your doctor prior to coming to class if you are pregnant or have other health conditions.
  • If you know you will need to leave class early, please place your mat near the door, and exit before savasana (laying relaxation) begins.
  • We recommend that all Prana students receive our e-mail newsletter, to stay current on holiday closures, schedule changes, registration periods, pass discounts, and special events. You can sign up for our newsletter on our website.
  • Up to 2 make-up classes can be taken within a pre-registered session. Please check in at the front desk when you do a make-up class. Make up classes must be done within the current session, they cannot be carried over into the next session.
  • Prana does not issue any refunds or credits for missed classes or unused passes. Pre-registered class and workshop cancellations must be given with at least 48 hours notice. If you are unable to attend due to medical reasons (doctors note required) a credit may be issued to your account to use at a later date.
  • Practicing yoga a few times weekly is recommended for continuity and growth; however, 1x or 2x per week is also extremely beneficial.  Try various styles and teachers to find your niche.
  • Children under the age of 11 are not permitted in adult classes unless approval has been given from Prana Management. Children that have not gone through puberty are not able to go into the hot class.
  • Yoga is non-competitive. Please go at your own pace. Be respectful towards your body, never moving to the point of pain, and rest as needed.
  • Most importantly, relax and enjoy!  Yoga is a powerful, delightful, and transformational practice, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized. Cumulatively, the process will enrich every aspect of your life, providing balance and inspiration for body, mind and spirit.
