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


I started going to Pura Vida when I was experiencing anxiety from stress and having regular panic attacks. Having taken medication for anxiety in the past I wanted to explore other methods before having to take medication again. I had taken yoga classes at a local gym in the past and decided to give it another try. Since joining I've been attending classes regularly, I fell In love with hot yoga! my panic attacks and anxiety have subsided and when I have a stressful day at work I make it a point to attend a class, when I wake up feeling anxious I make it a priority to go in for a class and take care of myself. I love the sense of community at Pura Vida! Thank you so much to all the amazing teachers who are there for us every day guiding us through our practice as we all deal with our own struggles, such a therapeutic environment.
