Grove Yoga School (GYS) 200hr Teacher Training Program

Note: There is no prerequisites for this program.

After successfully completing our hatha focused Grove Yoga School 200hr Teacher Training Program, you will be able to register with Yoga Alliance and be granted the 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) designation. This credential will demonstrate your skill and commitment to yoga when you are applying and then teaching at yoga studios, community centres etc..

Unique to GYS, as a student yoga teacher you will spend the vast majority of training hours with our Lead Instructor who has extensive yoga training and teaching qualifications. Additionally, our program incorporates many specialty concepts not included in other 200hr Training Programs, such as options and modifications for all abilities, niche yoga etc. In some cases these sessions many be lead by our Specialty Instructors. To augment your yoga education we also offer optional workshops such as Teaching Mat Yoga For Older Adults and Seniors or Teaching Restorative Yoga.

Our goal is to create a flexible training program that fits a varied schedule plus we offer extended timelines as needed. Want to do your yoga teacher training while your kids are at school, your significant other is at work, or need training times adjusted to fit your own schedule? We can do that!

We incorporate our yoga philosophy into our training: whether you are super fit and flexible or not, you just need a passion and dedication (on and off the mat) to be successful. We won't expect you to be able to do all the poses (asanas) in all their infinite variety. But, you will understand them and be able to aid your students in finding and adapting poses that fit their own journey into yoga.

This program is not limited to those who wish to teach it is great to yoga enthusiasts who wish more information to enhance their own yoga practice.
