100 Hour Foundations of Yoga is for those who are not sure they want to teach but are looking to broaden their own practice and knowledge. You can choose to sign up for the 100 Hour Teacher Training before, during, or after Immersion if it calls to you.

  • Fundamentals of Pranayama
  • Meditation Instruction
  • Guidance with Personal Practice

This Program will guide you towards a deep personal well rounded practice with a focus on fascial connections within the anatomical structure as well as understanding alignment that is achieved within asana (pose), intention, and lifestyle.
If just arriving on a mat and moving through  poses and calling it yoga is no longer fulfilling to you and you would like to explore the full eight limbs of a true Yoga practice, we look forward to sharing space with you.

The full 100 Hours is the Prerequisite for the final 100 Hours of Teacher Training.

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

INTIMATE SMALL GROUP TRAINING, CREATING INTELLIGENT, CARING, EMPATHETIC TEACHERS



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 program allowing for a connected and consistent training which focuses on what we believe will be the knowledge which will allow you to take your practice to a deeper level and give you a grounded understanding of the challenges your students and yourself may face on their individual journeys.

In a world where so many encourage you to believe that theirs is the only, and right way, we would love to share the many styles which, when joined together create what yoga is, (yuj - a union) a connection to everything. Find the areas of practice which speak to your heart and develop from the ground up. 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 that 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 and connection.

Teacher Training and Immersion 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 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 past 200 hour trainings. It will strengthen your ability to communicate with and guide your students. These hours can be counted towards your your CU's with Yoga Alliance
