🌾 Are you a 200 hour trained yoga teacher?

Are you interested in deepening your practice and taking your teaching to the next level?

Join us for a FREE Zoom information session that will give you a sneak peek into our in-depth Yoga Alliance certified 300 hour training, which combines 7 awesome core modules and your choice of elective modules to suit your specific interests.

✨️ The NEW format for our 300 hour YTT begins this October and runs monthly through May 2025.

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.

✨️ Receive 6 months of free yoga classes during the course!

Our 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.

✨️ A few spots left!! ✨

🌸 Experience the practice of Yoga Nidra, a yogic method that merges consciousness with the subconscious in a dream-like state. This session will lead you through gentle breathing exercises, body scanning, and visualizations to guide you into the theta brain state, harmonizing your autonomic nervous system, which comprises the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. 

The practice will be complemented by a sound healing session using singing bowls. Sound therapy has been utilized for millennia as a healing technique and has continued to evolve over time. The sound immersion will feature the therapeutic frequencies emitted by traditional and modern singing bowls, with minimal use of other instruments. This assortment includes Tibetan singing bowls and crystal quartz singing bowls, chimes, tuning forks and other instruments promoting equilibrium in the physical, mental, and energetic aspects of the body.

What to Bring to the Event:

– Wear comfortable clothing
– Yoga mat
– Water or tea
– Journal and pen
– Extra bolsters, blankets and pillows (the studio provides one bolster and one blanket)

As a special gift, each participant will receive a FREE Eye Pillow and a special gift to take home.

  • 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.

  • There are shower facilities in each changeroom. Please bring a towel or we do have towels to rent.
  • 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.
  • To reserve your spot for drop-in classes, sign in on-line. If you can not make a booking, we require 6 hours advance cancellation to make space for those on the waitlist. If you do not cancel your booking on-line more then 6 hours in advance, you may be charged a $15 fee or lose the privilege to pre-book in the future.
  • 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 over age 11 are permitted in warm classes. Teens must be 15 years of age in order to attend hot classes.
  • 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.

  • Therapeutic students: As many of you are recovering from injuries and surgeries, please be kind to your body and work at your own pace. Always communicate any old / new injuries or surgeries with your teacher.
