800-HR Somatic Yoga Therapist Training

Our 800-hour Somatic Yoga Therapist Training is an accredited Yoga Therapist Training program with the Canadian Yoga Alliance. Comprised of 3 study modules, this is offered as a 2-year or 3-year program that provides our graduates with the designation of 'Somatic Yoga Therapist'. We believe that to offer this work, you must experience it deeply, and have designed our curriculum to be an immersive journey of self-healing through the body with an embodied community of learners. We work with a small cohort of students each year and lead you through the process of BECOMING a Somatic Yoga Therapist, through a carefully designed curriculum that allows time for processing and thoughtful application over 2 weeks of immersive in-person learning that is combined with weekly online small group learning that is offered through the months of September to June. (Students are welcome to attend the in-person learning 1 week at a time or can complete their hours by flying into Calgary, AB, Canada for the immersion only once. We also allow students to attend the immersion again so that they can benefit from the learning on a deeper level.)

We believe that to support you in becoming a trauma-informed practitioner, we must lead from a trauma-informed place. For this reason, we respect your self-agency and right to choice. You are invited to complete your hours for the 800-hour program by the module or may enroll in the program in its entirety once you have been accepted into the training. We offer the program modules (Somatic Emotional + Somatic Energetic + Mentoring) once each year, so your program pathway allows for flexibility that supports your needs and wants. (For those who are interested in pursuing only a 300-hour designation for upgrading to RYT500, you are welcome to take just one 300-hour Module.)
