My Yoga Town

Yoga Town opened the doors 10 years ago debuting as the first exclusively hot yoga studio in Ottawa, and currently, the only one having more than hundred 5 star Google review (not easy to achieve!)

The regular 200H training begins with a 4-day intensive weekend, perfect to get to know your batch and interact with teachers and fellow participants. 

After finishing this groundwork, you’ll move into a set up of weekend workshops, which will help you integrate and practice all things you will be continuously learning, lengthening for 10 Saturdays over 13 week period.

You will be required to complete 60 classes outside of the scheduled meeting hours at Yogatown and assess those classes with your learned critical thinking skills.

Dharma Yoga 

At one of the lesser-known new yoga teacher training programs in the Ottawa area. Down the yoga follows the philosophy that Diamond Yoga does in yoga is a tool to discover what your passion is in life may that be your guide teaching or not. the program is offered several times a year an offer at one of the more affordable equation levels.

Karma Yoga 

Offering probably the most affordable and flexible yoga teacher training in Halifax area. The program is unique in that one can do the 200 hour online yoga teacher training and then come into the in person 200 hour yoga teacher training by paying the difference in the tuitions. 

Also  in either program you get to choose a concentration when we may have the restorative kids that you focus your practice and certification classes in as well as your philosophy and research papers in the program. Karma Yoga also works on the premise of paying it forward after they the program students to gain experience as well as offer free yoga classes to friends family and the community to give those who don’t normally get access to yoga.

Of course there are other yoga teacher training programs in the Ottawa area. But these are in our opinions the most affordable, offering the most flexible; the most professional and certified yoga teacher trainings available in Ottawa.
