200 Hr Teacher Training

Teaching YogaOne of Edmonton’s original and Alberta’s leading 200 HR yoga alliance recognized teacher training

Offering prospective instructors and students seeking a deeper understanding of yoga, and ultimately themselves, an intimate and nurturing environment in which to learn, grow and become empowered as teachers and individuals. Born from 20 years of research, study, practice and thousands of hours of teaching, Empowered Yoga is comprehensive program combining ancient traditions and philosophies with modern advancements in biomechanics, exercise science, wellness and psychology, creating effective and relevant tools for the modern teacher and student of yoga.

Empowered Yoga an evolving and integrated tradition

Our vision is to extract meaning and context from the ancient practices and apply this to modern ideas, social issues, health and wellness.

After centuries of psychology and physiology advnacements It is very clear that no two people share the same experiences or bodies, this program opens up the dialogue between many therapeutic and movement modalities, giving everybody a voice and dissolves the limiting boundaries that isolate and protect systems.

We do not SHOULD on our teachers and students, respecting all body shapes and abilities. The more we understand about the human body and brain the more we have realized that ‘correct’ geometric shapes within postures often sacrifices individuality and creates injury.  Any holistic system that lacks insight gained from modern paradigms lacks the relevance and continuity to be effective in the modern world.


This course is perfect for those who want a deeper understanding of yoga and how to implement these practices into daily living as well as those who are interested in eventually sharing the practice of yoga with others. While this course prepares students to facilitate (teach) yoga classes, it is also for those who are interested in developing their own personal self-care practices. For those interested in leading workshops, specialty programs and private yoga we encourage the 500Hr or 800Hr Program.
