Certifications 

Yoga Alliance certified, this improved program meets YA’s forthcoming Elevated Standards, which recognize that current minimum standards leave some teachers feeling like they aren’t ready to teach (even when they are!). Our improved program goes beyond the current minimums to develop teachers that are confident, creative, & skillful, while also being safe, caring, & compassionate. 

AYM’s YTT is also accredited by Employment and Social Development Canada and Revenue Quebec (tax receipts available). Because this is seen as vocational training, we will be able to meet in person in case of another shutdown. 

  

Prerequisites 

First and foremost, a willingness and openness to learn. More specifically, the ability and desire to invest in an engaged practice, while questioning their ideas and visions yoga & yoga practice. 

  

It is recommended to have at least 2 years of diligent asana practice, and some experience with meditation or other forms of self-inquiry. 

Those with less experience in yoga are invited to communicate with our program directors to discuss whether the program will benefit you and if so, how to make the most of your experience. 

  

Language 

The training is offered mainly in English, but basic bilingualism is recommended. Participants are welcome to submit homework, teaching assignments, and participate in teaching exercises in French or English, and we encourage all participants to become moderately comfortable giving and receiving basic instruction in both languages.

We’re excited to present AYM’s newly restructured Teacher Training!

Learn to teach safely with skill, confidence, compassion, and creativity.

 

Available online and in-person, all sessions are recorded and available to all participants through the duration of the program — allowing flexibility within your schedule.
