Prana Yoga Studio 300-hour Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher Training Program in Edmonton for 500 hour certification
200 hour + 300 hour = 500 hour YA certification
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.
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.

RETURNING IN 2021
The training culminates with a retreat at the beautiful Sanctum Retreat Center in Caroline, AB. This will be an unforgettable immersion into the deeper aspects of yoga.
Join us for this all inclusive retreat, in the time leading up to solstice when spring is nearing its peak, the sun is shining long and high, and the air is charged with prana; vital life force energy.
The sages teach that prana is abundant in the universe, it’s up to us how much we can receive and absorb. In this retreat we will use pranayama, asana, mantra, and philosophy to cleanse the body, heart and mind. As we release unconscious, outmoded beliefs and stagnant energy patterns, we free up space for new energy to fill us, awakening out latent potential to grow and to shine.
This three night, four day immersion into the deeper practices of holistic yoga is held in an ashram like setting surrounded by beautiful nature. Enjoy contemplative walks along lush forest trails along the spring fed Raven River. The new yoga room has a wall of windows overlooking majestic pines and a spring fed river.
This retreat is also open to the public.

The essence of yoga first infused my life in the year of 2000 as I unknowingly walked into the depth of what would be a completely new landscape, led by such humble and wise guides that naturally the practice unfolded before my eyes. From that point on it never left my sight for long and little did I know that it would forever change the way the world appeared through my eyes.
Although I discovered asana practice in 1995, it was not until 2010 that I truly dedicated myself to my practice. In the meantime I plunged heart (and head) first into an exploration of yogic philosophy – though non-dual teachings and satsangs as well as Kundalini Yoga and traditional Vedanta with some excellent teachers in the California and Australia.
In my practice and in my classes I love to explore variety, spontaneity, rhythm, challenge, grounding, and flow, with a strong emphasis on prana (subtle energy) – spreading it through the body equally, coming into a dynamic equilibrium. It’s this beautiful, living equilibrium that keeps me returning to the mat.
Krista began practicing yoga over 14 years ago and in 2007, took her first 200hr yoga teacher training program. At the time, she had no intention to teach yoga. Her interest was primarily in deepening self-awareness through meditation and pranayama (breath control techniques). However, the process of learning to teach the postures and breaking each one down in class to understand what was…
Leala’s yoga journey began in 1992 in NYC. Her first yoga class sparked a sense that there was much more to life than what the world had presented to her. Within a year, she had moved to the remote side of Maui where she met David Williams and began a three month intensive study of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. She went on to develop an steady home practice. Living in community on Maui and traveling, she taught whoever wanted to learn, including the Secoya indigenous people in the Amazon tributaries of Ecuador.
After moving to Alberta’s dry climate, intensive physical yoga practices began leaving her deeply fatigued. Leala began seeking a more holistic approach to yoga, one that would synergize her love of meditation, mindfulness, breath and embodied movement. She had a dream where she met and merged with an Indian sage who fused yoga and meditation into heart centered awakening. A few weeks later she met Yogi Vishvketu and began her journey into Akhanda® Yoga.
In 2006 Leala founded Prana Yoga Studio in Edmonton, Canada where she hosts workshops and trainings with Yogi Vishvketu every year. Leala is the Director of Training for the Akhanda Yoga Teacher Training program at Prana Yoga Studio. Along with owning a busy urban yoga studio, Leala has raised a family, guided international yoga retreats, and taught numerous YTT programs in both Canada and India. Leala’s passions include practicing yoga outdoors, hiking, swimming and quality time with her husband and their two vivacious daughters.
The benefits of yoga are precious and far-reaching. The invitation is to be profoundly open inside while holding vibrant presence for boundriless, limitless growth and evolution.
I was first drawn to yoga in 2006 as a way to complement more fast-paced fitness activities, and to experience relaxation while attending university. I realized my unwavering passion for yoga asana and philosophy while sharing what I had been learning with friends and family. I have been incredibly blessed to have had my journey lead to Prana Yoga Studio, where the holistic practice of mantra, pranayama, meditation, and asana continually bring me closer to my true, blissful, and fearless Self.
During the past five years of my university education, during which I received my Bachelor of Arts (majoring in psychology; 2010), and my Bachelor of Education (2012), I have been working with diverse groups of children and youth. I have worked extensively with children who have Autism Spectrum Disorder, in the capacities of a specialized services aide, a classroom teacher, and a yoga teacher for groups and families. I have also been trained with the organization Om-4-Youth (60 hours), which enables me to facilitate yoga groups with marginalized children and youth. I am continually striving to connect my passions for education and yoga; thus, I have created Awaken Education, with the intention of teaching children yoga, and teaching teachers how to bring yoga into their classrooms. Through Awaken Education, I hope to share tools in which to alleviate subconscious emotional reactions, develop awareness of individual and collective wellbeing in the classroom, develop a deeper sense of purpose in each student, and foster healthy bodies, minds and spirits. www.awakeneducation.ca
