Yoga Teacher Training Edmonton 2019
This 200 Hour Teacher Training is for all students seeking to deepen their knowledge of yoga practice, and will provide them with the skill sets necessary to be successful in teaching yoga and sharing this passion and journey with others. The training has an increased emphasis on the intelligent alignment of poses, or asanas, applying Western advances in understanding movement and the physical body to find a recognition that all bodies are different and learning how to modify each pose to accommodate these differences, and the journey towards the yogic lifestyle found both on and off the mat.
Higher Love Yoga Academy is a Registered Yoga School, accredited through the Yoga Alliance, and upon completion, students will be able to register with the Yoga Alliance as RYT's (Registered Yoga Teacher), enabling them to teach yoga around the world.

How to Prepare for Training
As training is an intensive process, the following tips might be quite helpful in finding balance in your life during this time of transition and deep study.
This training has a required reading component, including a textbook and additional readings, as well as suggested readings. This list is distributed to all participants prior to training start date. If you have the time and space in your schedule to do some of the readings ahead of time, it is a great way to start to familiarize yourself with the information, and allows for a little more freedom of time during the course.
Balance in our lives can be easily lost when we are not prepared. I highly encourage getting organized ahead of time. I found a day-planner works best for me, but if you have another method that is great too. I suggest planning your days around the training, so that you are certain you will have enough time for the other components of your life (work, spouse, children, prior commitments, etc.). I went through the training as a single mom of two young children, and can understand how hectic life can be when you are trying to pass your day-to-day responsibilities on to another person. Make time now to visit with family, and get any of the extras done ahead of time if possible (routine car servicing, dentist/optometrist appointments, etc).
I found preparing meals in advance and freezing them (so that after a long day of training you are not rushing home to make dinner for the next hour) quite helpful.
Upon the successful completion of the course, you will be provided with a certificate, which you will submit to the Yoga Alliance. Once received by them, you can register as a Registered Yoga Teacher. This accreditation will allow you to teach around the world.
