The first principal of true teaching is that nothing can be taught, for the teacher is not an instructor, but rather a helper and a guide. Her role is to suggest and not impose. She does not actually train the pupil’s mind, but only shows them how to prefect their instruments of knowledge and helps and encourages them in the process. She does not impart knowledge, but shows how knowledge can be unfolded within oneself...

Yoga Teacher Training

Current & Upcoming Trainings:

Restorative Yoga & Advanced Yoga Philosophy Teacher Training at Yoga Space Toronto.

Four weekends: Saturdays and Sundays 11:30am-7pm; 60 hrs.
2018 Dates: January 27,28
February 3,4; 17,18
March 3,4

When we begin to see how the physical aspect of yoga practice merges beautifully and seamlessly with yoga's rich philosophic history, something about our teaching changes forever. Nowhere is this more apparent then in the practice of restorative yoga, which is by its nature a practice that leads us to the unfolding of a meditative inner awareness, deepening our sense of who we are in truth. 

Join me in this transformational sixty hours, where we will learn the body of work that is the restorative yoga practice, as well as moving deeper into our understanding of yoga philosophy; meditation; Sanskrit scripture study and chanting. Together we will discover how these two aspects of the yoga tradition blend perfectly together, deepening our own sādhana as well as bringing our teaching to the next level of depth and excellence.  

I am proud to be working alongside the wonderful Kathryn Beet as assistant director, co-coordinator and co-teacher for Yoga Space: Toronto's 200 hr and 300 hr Yoga Alliance registered teacher training and personal development programs.

I am also the director of philosophical studies at Yoga Space, and responsible in this role for creating, organizing and teaching the yoga history and scripture study curriculum for all yoga teacher training and personal development programs at the school. I am the creator of the Restorative Yoga training program at Yoga Space, and the instructor.  

I am also a guest lecturer in the teacher training programs held at Octopus Garden Yoga Center, and I AM Yoga, both eminent Toronto yoga institutions.
