There is no need to travel to India to find an authentic immersion training, when SOYA's masterful, highly trained faculty offer an individualized, deeply transformative, safe and intimate teacher training in the beautiful Okanagan area of BC.

The SOYA 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training is rich with daily practice in pranayama, asana, meditation and philosophy study, while developing and refining teaching skills through practice teaching and lesson sequencing.

Start the studies at home prior to arriving for a 16-day Immersion at the lovely Naramata Centre on Okanagan Lake. This is a perfect immersion to deepen your personal practice!

Our Teacher Training is alignment-based Hatha Yoga and incorporates thorough study of Yoga Philosophy, as well as direct teachings from 'Letters From the Yoga Masters', authored by SOYA's founder, Marion Mugs McConnell.

This outstanding aspect of the SOYA Teacher Training Program embraces unity in all yogis, regardless of their paths and styles of yoga ("The paths are many but the Truth is One." Swami Sivananda). We are a registered school with Yoga Alliance and have been training Yoga Teachers at International standards for over 20 years.
