Student Safety and Inclusivity
As a small school, we endeavor to ensure that our spaces, both online and in person, are safe, inclusive and welcoming to our BIPOC and LBGTBQ2+ students. We are always learning and our heart is to make yoga accessible to ALL without discrimination or harm. Accessibility means many different things to many different people. Our hope is to provide a space where we can support one another in fully accessing our bodies and experiencing embodiment through the practices of yoga and wholehearted relationship. We endeavor to be trauma respectful, adaptive and accessible for people of all abilities.
Equitable Sliding Scale Tuition
Tuition for all of our programs is offered via an equitable system called a sliding scale, in the hopes that we can make our beautiful offerings accessible to any student in need of financial support. If you are unfamiliar with this approach, sliding scale fees acknowledge that we are not all in the same financial position and by offering a sliding scale to our students we make the tuition equitable as opposed to being equal. A great deal of time was spent in ensuring that these rates honour the time I will invest into your training, while placing it within your reach. In addition to the sliding scale rate, we will also support you in creating a payment plan that falls between 6 to 18 months. If you require additional support to make the tuition accessible, please speak with me and I will do my very best to help you.
At the time of your registration, you will be asked to communicate with our accounts manager the tuition amount that you can afford between the provided sliding scale amounts. You will be asked to arrange your payment plan or can request to pay in full at this time. We require all students to pay a deposit of $262.50 at time of registration. Your tuition includes all modules, mentor support, course manuals, and lifetime access to video manuals, and our ongoing community support. Your tuition is tax deductible and you will be issued a T2202a form at the start of each tax season.

Q: Can I decide to take the 300 Hour training after I have completed the Thai Training?
A: Yes! If you start with the Thai Training and choose to continue on into yoga teacher training, you have the following options. If you do not have a prior yoga cert, we will direct you to the 200 hour ytt that is offered fully online. If you do have a prior cert, you can add on the remaining 150 hours of ytt, to earn your 500 hour ytt. Your cost of tuition would be an additional $1675 to $2450, pending on your financial circumstances.
Q: Can I decide to take the 300 Hour training after attending the retreat?
A: Absolutely! The retreat is part of the 300 hour curriculum. We would just ask you to decide upon your 300 hour tuition amount and would deduct the amount already paid for the retreat. The same goes for any online Mandorla Yoga Course that you attend. We understand that you may need to get a feel for our approach prior to making a big commitment, so we fully support your trying us out! We are also happy to share a free sample of our courses with anyone considering our programs.
