200 HR + 300 HR EMBODIMENT YOGA TEACHER TRAINING™

Welcome to Embodiment Yoga Teacher Training. This is a 500 hour in depth program that deeply explores the cultivation of your own personal sadhana (yoga practice). Comprised of our Foundational YTT (200 hours) and our Advanced YTT (300 hours, includes a complete Thai Yoga Massage Training), this thorough training looks at Yoga through the lens of Ayurveda, Thai Yoga Massage and Yoga Therapy to give insights for creating tailored practices that meet you where you are at NOW in this moment. In these trainings you will grow in your ability to connect with your body and your heart, strengthening your own understanding of your needs and wants and how to respond with supportive yoga practices. Strongly rooted in Adaptive Yoga, each exploration is ACCESSIBLE for ALL BODIES and TRAUMA RESPECTFUL. The 500 hour training was created as a complete program, but students are welcome to take parts of the program for individual certification.

Certifications Available

200 HR RYT + Retreat = 250 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher 

200 HR RYT + Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner (Retreat is included) = 350 Hr RYT

If you have no prior yoga training, we suggest enrolling in our Foundational 200 hour program first or you are welcome to enroll into our Thai Yoga Massage Training with no prior experience required. Our yearly retreat is also open to anyone who wishes to attend. To enter into the 300 hour program, you must first complete a 200 hour training either with Mandorla or a similar school. 

My personal belief is that, while our 200 hour ytt is extremely thorough, if it is your intention to teach or share yoga with others, a full 500 hour training is necessary for attaining the level of competence needed. I do recognize, that for many individuals, the cost of additional training isn't accessible. For this reason, I have endeavored to provide an equitable approach to the cost of your teacher training tuition, offering a sliding scale and payment plan options. As an accredited school, your tuition for those of you within Canada, is tax refundable via a T2202a.

Because of recent world events, the majority of these trainings are now available to you ONLINE with a blend of self led study through readings and On Demand class work and LIVE weekly classes. Our 300 hour program requires students to attend the training retreat, held 3 times each year at different locations. Alternative options can be given should in person training be ill advised. 

 

We suggest giving yourself 5 to 10 hours per week to dedicate to your training with the idea of completing your studies within 6 months to a year for each program. 

We have existed as an accredited school since 2007. We do not sell you a yoga course and leave you to figure out things on your own. We run training over 4 semesters each year and provide live sessions with on demand options so that all of our students are personally supported while giving you the maximum flexibility for your studies.

Blessings,

Stefani

RECLAMATION + TRANSFORMATION + RESILIENCE

Embodiment Yoga™ is based on the 3 core principles of Reclamation, Transformation and Resilience. Practices always begin with creating a safe container, establishing ease and supporting students in empowered self discovery. We use this foundation to access our own innate transformation as we move into powerful practices from a place of our own want and consent. We use vinyasa krama to intelligently open the body and cultivate resilience by practicing how to regulate ourselves through breath, meditation, mantra and mudra.

TRAUMA RESPECTFUL

Mandorla seeks to create teachers who use trauma respectful language and teaching approaches in mainstream classes. Yoga can be a powerful tool for tapping into the somatic layer of ourselves. We see an opportunity for teachers to support their students in better accessing their bodies. This is not a clinical training for teaching those with Trauma, but a training that hopes to bridge a gap that we see in the yoga teaching community. Many of us have trauma and going to a yoga class can be a step toward our healing journey with the proper support. Empowering teachers to use language that is respectful, student led and and empowering can make a world of difference.

AYURVEDA

All of our programs are rooted in the wisdom of Yoga's sister art, Ayurveda. Like Yoga, Ayurveda gives us tools to better understand ourselves and what we need for balance. Combining these arts together creates yoga practices that are rich with insight for bringing ourselves into a place of balance and restoration. We share this art from the very beginning in all our programs, sharing with you the knowledge of the Elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether and how to pull these qualities into yoga asana and breath. In advanced progrmas we go deeper with understanding of dosha and lifestyle.

THAI YOGA MASSAGE

The presence a teacher brings allows us to feel held and whole. It allows us to go to places that didn't feel possible on our own. When we add the art of touch, done in a respectful way, it takes this experience to new depths. Thai Yoga Massage supports you in opening your body, releasing tension and allowing others to hold you. All healing and profound experiences on their own. This wisdom is weaved into all our programs, but is taken to fullness in our Practitioner training that is accredited with the NHPC.

 

150 HR THAI YOGA MASSAGE PRACTITIONER TRAINING

Practitioner Designation with the NHPC

ONLINE Training with Optional Retreat

This beautiful program takes you on a journey where Thai Massage and Restorative Yoga meet. Integrating the sister art of Ayurveda, you are taught how to support clients via the three Dosha of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Upon completion of this program, you will have the resources to offer three distinct Thai Yoga Massage sessions that are each up to 120 minutes in length. This program speaks to RMTs, Yoga Teachers and enthusiasts, giving you skills that can be integrated on the massage table, in yoga classes and everyday life. Having the ability to support others in better accessing and moving through their bodies is a gift in and of itself.

Trauma respectful practice asks that we provide hands on assists instead of adjustments and corrections. When we approach practice from this place, a place of holding space for others with gentleness, we begin to understand how profound touch is. This program immerses you in the art of Thai Yoga Massage, Ayurveda and Restorative Yoga practices for creating powerful one on one sessions. For Yoga Teachers, this content will inspire your group yoga class offerings.  Completion of requisite hours will give you a Practitioner Designation with the NHPC, allowing you to offer insurance receipts to your clients.
