'I thoroughly enjoyed my training with Karma Yoga in Dundas, Ontario!  We had a really great class size that was very conducive to interactive and practical learning.  We got to enjoy almost all of our classes outside, either in a nearby park, or a short drive away to one of several beautiful nature reserves. I had no idea Dundas was so beautiful! Chris was a great, passionate instructor that I hope to meet again for YTT500! ' Alli, Sept 2017

"I had a great time during my YTT training with Karma yoga this past August. I loved learning and practice my skills in a fun and relaxed environment. I met amazing people in my class. I really enjoyed learning and working with Chris!! I look forward to continuing  and growing on my yoga journey." Mel, Sept, 2017

'Karma Yoga Teacher Training was the most affordable studio in town and
fit it well with my schedule, so I chose to do the teacher training as a
self-development project. I did the intensive 4 week program which just flew
by!...The group class was small and personalized and Chris was always available for individual attention if you needed any. I loved learning all the philosophy behind yoga and days went by very quickly as there was a lot of information to be taught. Thanks Chris and Karma'
Yoga for this wonderful experience! Val,  June 2017

"The teacher training is informative, fun, and a wonderful experience. I learned a lot about yoga as a whole, and my own personal practice."  Alex,  Apr. 2017

"My experience with Karma Yoga Teaching Training has been very uplifting and made me feel more confident to be able to teach yoga. I learned a lot about asanas and their benefits as well as the history of Yoga...I feel very happy that I chose Karma Yoga for my teacher training and I can't wait to teach more in the future"  Laura, N0v. 2016

"Karma Yoga is such a loving environment. The studio is warm and cozy and the teachers are great! The yoga teacher training was awesome, I learned so much!" Molly, Nov. 2016

"The yoga teacher training program was a perfect balance of fun and quality teaching. Just loved the program"  Scott, Aug. 2016

"Their yoga teacher training program was great; it covered the basics of teaching yoga with the added component of forcing (all the students in the program) us to find our true real reasons of why we wanted to be yoga teachers. I feel that was the most import thing I learned from the program and it changed my life!" Anne, Aug. 2016

200HR PROGRAM FAQ

What Is Included With The Tuition?

We give you a Yoga Teacher Training Manual – readings and assignments for the 200-Hour curriculum (given to you on the first day of class). Tuition also includes: mentorship, practical teaching experience with employment opportunities, a 30% discount on all future programs with us and unlimited yoga classes while in the program.

How Proficient In Yoga Do You Have To Be To Do The Program?

We ask that all students have a minimum of one year of practice. Students should have a general level of knowledge regarding asana (physical practice) including sun salutations and basic postures. A regular meditation practice is an asset but not required.

How Many Students Are Enrolled In Each Yoga Teacher Training Program?

The class size is usually under 12 students, we do this to allow each student more one on one time with the leads.

Do You Offer Scholarships?

We offer a partial scholarship to deserving candidates for every program we run. Go to our scholarships page for more information.

Do You Offer Payment Options?

Payment options are available after the $500 deposit is paid.

How Is Our Teacher Training Program Different Than Other Teacher Training Program Offered?

One of the biggest complaints about most yoga teacher training programs is that there is not enough practical experience; aside from offering very affordable programs - with added values like included mentorship and scholarships for every program we run - our programs are an equal balance of theory and practice.  To graduate from any of our programs, each student must complete a set number of Karma Hours (practical hours).
