Ocean Breath 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training and 100 Hour Foundations of Yoga Program (Immersion)


Together we are all so much stronger and whole.

Join us on lovely Granville Island  to connect to body, breath, mind, heart and each other and discover the real power is your connection to what matters.  


Ocean Breath Yoga's 200 Hour Teacher Training is based not on a brand of yoga but on all styles and aspects of Yoga which create a well rounded, open hearted and balanced teacher. All the training will be with the teachers of the studio allowing for a connected and consistent training which focuses on what we believe will be the knowledge which will allow you, as a student and a teacher to take your practice to a deeper level, giving you an informed understanding of the challenges your students and you yourself may face on this Yoga journey.

In a world where so many encourage you to believe that theirs is the only, and right way, learn how all styles combined with your interests and exploration, when joined together create what yoga is, (yuj - a union) a connection to everything. Find the areas of practice inspire you and develop from the ground up (like your poses). If you teach from your heart you will not only give others a gift, but yourself as well.

It has become common place for people to believe that "doing" yoga is going to a studio and moving through some asana to make themselves stronger or stretchier. Become the teacher who is able to guide people to not only a healthy physical practice but one that embodies the other 8 limbs of yoga in a way that encourages learning, understanding and a desire to be healthy and open to living.

Teacher Training and Immersion (Yoga Foundations) with Ocean Breath Yoga School, is a place of study for all ages, all bodies, all interests.
If you have a desire to share your love of the practice with others and the gifts it shares with you, this training is for you.
If you want to strengthen your Yoga practice and the understanding of how it can impact your life and others', this training is for you.
If you have an interest in knowing how the philosophy of Yoga can be embodied in your life and how, combined with the physical movement can change your relationship with your world...this training is for you.
If you have always felt there is more to yoga than doing what a teacher tells you to, that instead it asks you to connect to your true self, your inner teacher, breathe deep and meet your life with equanimity and love, this training is for you.


If you decide that this is the training for you, here is your first yoga homework......Make the choice, commit and then really show up, body, mind and soul.  

If your are a Yoga Teacher this training will help solidify concepts you have learned in any past 200 hour training. It will strengthen your ability to communicate with and guide your students, and you will come away with a more in-depth understanding of how to help students source their full physical and energetic form. These hours can be counted towards your CEU's with Yoga Alliance
