About the event

​This beautiful training is for those who feel ready to step into self-discovery and personal evolution that prepares you to share the gift of Restorative Somatic Yoga with others in a profound and meaningful way. By dancing between experiencing and applying the knowledge, we intend to support you in deepening your own embodied practice and in becoming a teacher of presence and substance.

The Somatic  Yoga Teacher Training is a program that weaves the arts of Ayurveda, Somatic Movement, Yoga Therapy, Heart Wisdom, and Feminine Yoga Philosophy with the practices of Adaptive & Restorative Yoga, Breathwork, and Meditation. This is a foundational program that gifts you with the wisdom of Somatic Yoga Therapy so that you can heal yourself. Instead of traditional learning, this is an embodied journey through inspiring body-based experiences. With a deep dive into Earth Element tools for grounding, listening to the body, learning the language of your body, and working with the nervous system to restore regulation; this program introduces you to the principles of yoga therapy from the very start, so that you may become a student of your own body through the lens of Somatic Yoga Therapy.

Graduates of this program earn the designations of 200-hour Somatic Yoga Teacher and Somatic Rest Facilitator and may register with both the US and Canadian Yoga Alliances as a 200-hour Yoga Teacher.

This body-led immersion will support you in understanding the functional anatomy of the body from an intuitive and organic place, while supporting you in creating an understanding of . . .   sequencing ~ the art of hands-on assisting for supporting deep rest ~  alignment & adaptation ~ and the arts of teaching embodiment yoga and facilitating somatic rest experiences.

Offered as a 2-week immersion in Calgary, AB with 9 online classes on Wednesday evenings from 5 pm to 8 pm PST, this exploration allows you to embrace your own healing in an immersive space over the in-person two weeks and then provides you with consistent support as you integrate the material in the comfort of your own home. Should certain times be difficult for your online class attendance, we record all sessions so that you can stay connected while honoring your rhythm.

This 200-hour program is a government-accredited training that allows you to utilize RRSP withdrawals toward your tuition and provides a full tuition tax refund. There are no requisites for this training, but we do have an application process in place so that we can do our best to create a space that is inclusive, affirming, and informed for ANYONE who feels called into this space. 

All Mandorla trainings are neurodivergent-led and curated to support neurodivergent adult learners. We collaborate with you to meet your individual learning needs as you work through the material. In addition to our live sessions, students are provided with access to our online learning platform and the Embodiment Yoga Teacher Training Manual.
