Teacher Training &
Yoga Education Program

Teacher Training


The Octopus Garden Teacher Training and Yoga Education program is a comprehensive 1000-hour curriculum divided into three segments: 200-hours, 300-hours, and 500-hours. Each component may be taken individually or together as part of a two-year program of study. Begin with the fundamentals of self-practice, expand your teaching skills in the second segment, and advance towards a yoga therapy specialization in the final component. This program is the most extensive and rigorous teacher training of its kind in Canada and exceeds the highest standards of the Yoga Alliance.
