Fall/Winter 200hr Vinyasa YTT

IMG 2547   IMG 2548  

Join us in a highly-practical, creative and strong 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training. In our Fall/Winter 2022 training (September start date), we will work very hard in setting a strong foundation in the initial 3 weekends which will be filled with anatomy, class structure and yoga philosophy. The following weekends will be filled with the learning of postures, deeper sequencing and polishing of cuing. This training demands you practice teach from day one; you will give and receive many classes in this active training. Finding your voice is something we really work on! This will be Pura Vida's 6th year offering the YTT course. This year's training will be led by Kathryn McCracken (500hr E-RYT) with assisting instructors Shannon Potter and Laura Didyk. Amy Murphy (200hr E-RYT) will be leading the anatomy portion of the training.

There will be readings, classes, and assignments.

These are the set weekends. 8am-5pm

**2 Thursday evenings will be scheduled for a 3hr session (6-9pm) online for Anatomy with Amy in between her 2 Saturday intensives.**

During the above weekends, work alone, in partners and/or small groups and teach community classes at the studio (end of training). We use these experiences and EVERY class experience to discuss the unpredictable circumstances that can arise in “real-life” classes. Learn how to ADAPT. Curb energy, salvage mistakes.

Investment $3,350 plus HST ($500 deposit required to hold your spot which is non refundable) - If the training does not happen for some reason your deposit will be refunded.

You will be required to purchase 3 books for the training.

**You may not miss more than one full weekend for any reason (or 2 consecutive days).**

What Client's Say

Louise Poirier

I've been practicing yoga on and off for the past 15 years with an amazing instructor who closed shop in December. In January, I was given a one-month membership at PuraVida, and a true gift it has been. I had no expectations at the outset but was very pleasantly surprised to encounter welcoming, warm and very competent and respectful trainers who are both professional and friendly. The essence of the spirit of yoga can be found at this studio. The instructors I have met are encouraging and present challenges while still reminding students to move at one's pace, listening to one's body.

Le personnel du studio Pura Vida m'offre l'occasion de pratiquer le yoga dans une ambiance accueillante et paisible qui me permet d'améliorer ma santé physique ainsi que mon bien-être psychologique, mais ce qui importe le plus pour moi est la tranquillité d'esprit qui me reste en quittant les cours. Un véritable cadeau!
merci particulièrement à Melissa et Chantel:)
